MSNBC commentator Susan Del Percio said on Tuesday that she believes President Donald Trump is “basically a dictator” because he likes to “punish people” and “create things.”


“What can go wrong is when you have basically a dictator — or someone who likes those authoritative views — in the White House right now,” she said. “And you know, dictators like to punish people and they like to create things and how do you hold someone like that accountable?”

“We have to put country and party, we have to do the right thing,” Del Percio said, asking when Republicans would finally stop supporting Trump. “When does the car crash and burn?”

Thomas Friedman, a New York Times columnist, agreed that the country is facing a “Constitutional crisis” and said he is counting on former presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush to come together and denounce the president when the time comes.
