Over the weekend, Donald Trump reached a new level of unhinged craziness when he decided to accuse former President Barack Obama of wiretapping his phones in the Trump Tower. This has thrown the government and intelligence community into a tailspin, as Trump’s insane accusations have no evidence behind them and what he’s implying is an extremely serious offense. And if things couldn’t get any worse, earlier today Trump also signed a new travel ban executive order, which is pretty much just as bad as the first.
This week is certainly starting off on a low note as American comes to grip with the fact that we have a sitting president making up serious lies about our former beloved president, and this definitely set the tone on this morning’s Morning Joe. Co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski were absolutely beside themselves as they lamented the chaos that Trump’s presidency and administration have already caused in its first few weeks. Scarborough commented on Trump’s accusations that the Obama administration had tapped his phones and said:
I think we reached a new low this weekend.
Brzezinski chose much harsher words. Completely over playing nice with Trump and ready to give him a piece of her mind, Brzezinski said what many Americans who once had an open mind about Trump are probably feeling. She said:
I had hope and an open mind and I have lost hope completely and my mind is closed. This presidency is fake and failed.
Damn. Brzezinski is becoming a powerful voice against Trump, having previously been one of the first people to publicly ban “alternative facts” Kellyanne Conway from ever coming on her show. It’s clear that she wants nothing to do with Trump and his disgraceful team, and she’s not afraid to speak out against him.
Trump’s administration has been engulfed by scandals since its beginning, and for the POTUS to suggest that Obama broke the law is truly ironic – particularly since Obama’s 8 years in the White House have been relatively scandal-free, unlike Trump’s first month and a half.
