In an attempt to pin a Coast Guard lieutenant turned domestic terrorist on President Trump, MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski tried her best to make a new label stick to our President.
Brzezinski asked Republicans if President Trump has become their “cult leader.”
“[W]hat Republicans have denounced the obvious threat to the president’s critics?” Brzezinski questioned. What Republicans have stepped up and said this is wrong in lieu of the president not stepping up and making a statement against someone who would threaten the lives of the president’s critics? I just don’t know what planet we’re on when you can’t even get one Republican, or two or three, to say, ‘You know, the president should have denounced it. I denounced it.’”
“It was actually a plot to assassinate most of his Democratic opponents who are seeking the presidency, running against him,” Scarborough responded. “And the silence was deafening, not only from the president who basically said, ‘Gee, that’s too bad,’ after being pressed but never denounced it.”
“Have you fallen for a cult leader? Does he have a hold of your brain? Can you speak for yourselves, Republicans?” Brzezinski asked
