‘Morning Joe’: Trump’s Impeachment Letter Shows He’s ‘Personally’ Wounded
As the House is set to debate articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, MSNBC’s Morning Joe discussed the President’s bizarre six-page letter to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. The letter read like an extended tweet.
“It may be the most unpresidential presidential document ever written,” the Washington Post‘s David Ignatius said.
“It is a rant,” he said. “I thought the thing that told you what’s going on for Donald Trump is when he called impeachment a very ugly word, and he’s wounded.”
“Yeah, he is. Personally,” co-host Joe Scarborough agreed.
“He gets it. He gets it,” Ignatius said. “He knows that he’s about to be impeached, and six pages of flow, I think the one thing that people have to think about today is how many people around the country would be as angry, you know, as full of venom and indignation at what’s being done to Donald Trump as he is himself because that’s really what we’re going to be living through these coming months.”
“How big is the number that agree with this rant from the President? It’s not a defense. It’s really just a rant, but it was a document that told you that for Donald Trump this hurts.”
