MSNBC Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski gave the country a peek into the private behavior of a mentally ill president and his White House staff on enablers, and what they exposed was an abuse of power by a man who is not well.
The Morning Joe hosts wrote in The Washington Post, “The president’s unhealthy obsession with our show has been in the public record for months, and we are seldom surprised by his posting nasty tweets about us. During the campaign, the Republican nominee called Mika “neurotic” and promised to attack us personally after the campaign ended. This year, top White House staff members warned that the National Enquirer was planning to publish a negative article about us unless we begged the president to have the story spiked. We ignored their desperate pleas.”
The White House tried to threaten Scarborough and Brzezinski with a National Enquirer story, presumably exposing their romantic relationship, not for political purposes, or in the name of dirty politics, but because they wanted the MSNBC hosts to get on bended knee and make Trump feel like a big man by begging him for mercy.
This is not the behavior of a ruthless politician who is using the presidency to get what he wants. It’s the behavior of a mentally ill man who is using the power of the presidency to stroke his own ego and pay back those who he thinks have said bad things about him.
There can be no mistake about what Scarborough and Brzezinski are getting at. Their piece is titled “Donald Trump Is Not Well.”
The President Of The United States appears to have some mental health issues, and a strong culture of enablement surrounding him within the Republican Party. Republicans will never admit that their president is not well, so the only choice that the country has is to get rid of the Republicans.
