A guest on MSNBC Saturday said that the “evidentiary piece” of an explosive new book on Donald Trump’s early presidency is “less important” because he already knows Trump acts the way described in the book.
Podcast host James Peterson appeared on “MSNBC Live With Alex Witt,” and said, “Well, I think the book is a bombshell without question, Alex, but it’s more of a bombshell in terms of confirmation as opposed to any kind of revelation. You don’t need ‘Fire and Fury’ to understand that this president behaves himself like a child at times. All you have to do is follow his Twitter feed.” (RELATED: Scarborough Admits Wolff Book ‘May Not Have Gotten Every Quote Exactly Right’ [VIDEO])
He added, “You don’t need to understand that this White House has been chaotic, from a book, you can see the chaotic nature of this White House by the way it’s prosecuted its agenda over the course of the last year. So the evidentiary piece of the book is to me less important. The American people can look at what’s going on, can look at the President’s Twitter feed, can look at the ways in which policy has been enacted by this administration, by the ways in which people have been fired and the sort of revolving door of the administrative staff itself.”
“There’s evidence in the public sphere that this book might confirm that I think makes it believable. So the believability factor I think is evidentiary in the actual practice of the Trump administration,” he said. (RELATED: How The Media Mainstreamed A Democratic Conspiracy Theory)
