The “Morning Joe” host said GOP lawmakers were standing on the sidelines as Trump signaled he would fire special counsel Robert Mueller, cozied up to Russian president Vladimir Putin and showed he was at risk for blackmail by various women he’d paid off for sex.
“While most Republicans are playing politics with and not sure whether they can succeed with or without Trump, let me lay out for you the questions that we’re dealing with just this week alone,” Brzezinski said. “The question as to whether or not the president will fire Bob Mueller. That is front and center right now, and people high up in the administration and people high up in the intelligence community are deeply concerned will happen.”
“A lot of people feel that is a reality at this point, and then it’s his relationship with women, and several women coming forward and saying they had affairs with the president, but affairs aside, they say they were threatened, abused by the president,” Brzezinski said. “Did it happen by his people during his presidency, during his campaign? These stories are coming to a head and one may come out on ’60 Minutes’ this Sunday. This is all on the president’s plate right now. What you see in tweets that come out with misspellings, with urgency, with a sense of unhinged impulsiveness, and you have to be wondering especially if you’re in the intelligence community if this president is so impaired and so subject to blackmail that he’s unfit to lead.”
“He comes here for what’s really going on,” Brzezinski added. “He really wants everybody to like him. They don’t, and it — it actually gets to his head. Meanwhile, we have our entire country’s place in the world at stake.”
