A guest on MSNBC Monday called President Trump “psychologically deranged” and suggested he might destroy democracy in America.
Richard Painter, appearing on “The Beat With Ari Melber,” said, “Well, I think we are in danger, our democracy’s in danger. But there’s one person in control of the military right now, the commander-in-chief is Donald Trump. And there is a risk of him using that power to destroy our democracy, whether you call it a coup or anything else. But it’s not from the critics of Donald Trump that the danger is posed. It’s the fact that the man who is commander-in-chief of our military engaged in obstruction of justice and other crimes is also psychologically deranged.”
Painter’s previous appearance on MSNBC Saturday was similarly inflammatory, as he accused Donald Trump of calling Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand a “whore” and repeated the claim that Trump was “psychologically deranged.” (RELATED: MSNBC Guest: ‘Psychologically Deranged’ Trump Called Gillibrand A ‘Whore’ [VIDEO])
