Mike Barnicle, senior contributor for “Morning Joe” on MSNBC, said Wednesday that Trump has his own universe and “believes everything in his universe.”
“There are so many inaccuracies and falsehoods in that, Mike Barnicle,” Joe Scarborough said.
“‘They want illegals coming over the border.’ By the way, illegals? … Okay. He says everybody wants the border wall. No, they don’t,” Scarborough continued. “Two-thirds of Americans are against that idea. I think most Republicans are now against that idea.”
“When he says he’s going to blame Democrats for a government shutdown, Mike, do you think somebody in his White House could tell him the Republicans own the executive branch, the Republicans own the legislative branch, the House and the Senate, and for the most part, they own the judiciary,” Scarborough said.
“Well, first of all, he has created his own universe, and he believes everything that he says that is a part of his own universe,” Barnicle stated. “This country deserves so much better than what we’re witnessing,” he insisted.
The president has recently been pressuring Congress, both Republicans and Democrats, to pass a tax reform bill over the last few months. Just yesterday, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi refused to show for a meeting with the president.
