Malcolm Nance Calls Trump Out On AM Joy: He’s A Dangerous “Conspiracy Theory President”

Counterterrorism expert Malcolm Nance pulled no punches on Saturday morning, telling Joy Reid of MSNBC’s AM Joy that Donald Trump is a “conspiracy theory president” who has no business being in control of America’s nuclear arsenal.

Nance’s comments came after Reid asked him whether any previous president has “actively worked to undermine the trust of government from within” by using alt-right conspiracies to inform his decision-making.


Nance tore into Trump, calling him a “conspiracy theory president” and adding that he’s “not even sure whether you can put those three words together in a tangible sentence and actually use the word president.”

Referring to Trump’s recent paranoid conspiracy theory that former President Obama illegally wiretapped Trump Tower during the campaign, the intelligence expert said, “He seems to be buying every crazy idea that’s out there.”

Nance continued:

Now, granted, the man can’t seem to tell the truth about anything and the worst part is, like Jennifer Rubin, she wrote an article I guess a few weeks ago questioning whether he could actually determine what was real and what was false in his world. This is dangerous, and as much as it sounds amusing, we can make jokes about it, he controls 4,000 atomic weapons. He controls the levers of power in the United States. If he’s going out with Steve King and others in Congress and saying that the former Preident of the United States wiretapped a conversation he had a few weeks ago with the president of Australia, I mean we have got a very serious problem here. This man may be in a position where he will start causing true harm to American democracy because he doesn’t know the difference between what American democracy is and the crazy things which he’s told by people like Steve Bannon and other parts of the alt-right world.

It’s one thing for right-wing extremists to go on Twitter and spew ridiculous conspiracy theories, like Trump’s most infamous lie that President Obama was born in Kenya. In the past, this was something that rational Americans could laugh at and then quickly carry on with their day.

Now, that person is the President of the United States. It’s not some meaningless babble any longer. Instead, it’s informing his decisions as commander-in-chief. And as Nance said, this is a “very serious problem” that could soon inflict major damage on American democracy.

This is what happens when a commander-in-chief gets his briefings from Alex Jones and Breitbart instead of people who have a clue about the world.
