Two years ago today, on June 16, 2015, Donald Trump came down the escalators at Trump Tower in New York and announced his bid for the presidency of the United States.
On MSNBC’s Morning Joe, co-host Joe Scarborough asks, “Is he capable of self-correction?”
The guest claimed Trump will begin to self-destruct. “Everything that Donald Trump has done in his life is to puff and inflate… his size, his money, his self-esteem. Right now for the first time in his life, that puffery is going to be pricked and pinned in a way that he cannot control, and the more that his public persona – the more his size starts to deflate – because everything is about size for Donald Trump – the more he is going to unravel in a way that is going to show his mental instability,” he alleged.
He claimed that “when they get his tax returns” is when the “emperor’s clothes come off…. and that’s when you’re going to see the Russian connections.”
Mika brought up Trump’s recent cabinet meeting, called it “a little sick” and said it made Trump look like a dictator.
Joe commented that two years ago, no one thought Trump could win -“this guy has shocked us before – maybe he gets smart and fires Steve Bannon, maybe he brings in professionals around him.”
Watch the segment below, as they comment on Trump’s current 35 percent approval rate and ponder the future of his presidency.
