Appearing on CNN’s New Day this Monday, Washington Post conservative columnist Jennifer Rubin slammed the president and his staff on account of the fact that the question of whether or not the President possesses mental stability is even a question at all.
Rubin apparently appeared on air after Trump staffer — and Nazi connected individual — Sebastian Gorka appeared on CNN and tried to convince people that the president’s tweets about the travel ban shouldn’t be taken as necessarily substantive or meaningful.
In the aftermath of the recent London Bridge terror attack that left seven people dead and dozens more injured, President Trump has renewed calls for his Muslim-targeting travel ban to be implemented.
The problem, however, is that Trump’s team has long tried to cast the travel ban as not a ban at all, instead trying to pretend like it’s something tamer. Thus, Trump’s tweets calling the ban what it is have posed a problem for his staffers.
Rubin, however, wasn’t buying the assertion that it’s both somehow normal for the president to fire off belligerent tweets at random and that these tweets don’t necessarily define policy.
As she began:
‘This is the problem with the President; he’s like the world’s worst client or the world’s worst witness. You get him all prepped to say one thing, and boom, he’s off and running in another direction. The problem is that we have a president who is not focused on the right things, who creates controversy, who has taken the worst possible opportunity to attack the mayor of a city that has been attacked by terrorists.’
Indeed, as Rubin mentions, not only has the president taken to renewing calls for his Muslim ban in the aftermath of the London Bridge attack, but he’s also taken to attacking the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, for his refusal to go along with Trump’s hate fueled, Muslim ban toting response to terrorism.
Rubin finished off by asserting that there are “serious concerns about this president’s mental stability,” saying:
‘There are serious problems when you have a president of the United States who is so erratic, so unreliable. This is incredibly damaging, and the notion that what the President says and what he communicates to the world is ridiculous. What the President says matters; it does make policy and if you’re afraid for the president to use social media, take it away from him.’
