‘Morning Joe’: Americans Are Exhausted By A President Who Can Barely Remember Where He Is
The American people are exhausted by President Trump and want a return to normality, according to MSNBC’s Morning Joe. Host Joe Scarborough and regular contributor Mike Barnicle discussed the Democratic presidential field and Trump’s repeated bizarre statements.
“There is, wherever you go, a desire for a return to normalcy and I think it was a New York Times op-ed by Frank Bruni, talking about the exhaustion factor, which just can’t be underestimated,” Scarborough said.
“The exhaustion factor, Donald Trump, may end up being his undoing. And with Biden, people may see a guy, you know what, things weren’t quite as crazy back when he was vice president, maybe we try him again.”
“And there’s no doubt, Joe, that part of his numbers are because of familiarity,” Barnicle said. “People know who he is as opposed to other people in the field running for president for the first time, a lot of them, with the exception of Bernie Sanders, but when they look at Joe Biden, and I know you’ve heard this, when you’re out and around, I know you’ve heard this, and we’ve all heard it, I think, that a lot of Americans just want to pump the brakes and the temperature of our politics.”
“It is just so overheated, not occasionally, multiple times a day and this weekend is a perfect example of what people are trying to get rid of, this back and forth, when you have the President of the United States, can barely remember where he is and what he said from moment to moment and changes his mind from moment to moment on things that are at their essence, quite dangerous, to not only world peace, to the world economy but to our system of democracy.”
Scarborough outlined the many things Trump had said over the past week, including attempting to buy Greenland and his trip to the G7.
“We now find out that he’s telling aides to seize private property and in the seizing of private property, break any laws they need to break, that he’ll pardon them later,” Scarborough said. “This is just over the past four or five days, and that’s just exhausting to the American people, not just snowflakes on the left or snowflakes on the right, that is exhausting to rank and file Americans.”
