Skip to comments.MSNBC’s The Last Word: Trump’s Behavior ‘Strange,’ ‘Troubling’
Posted on 05/24/2019 2:22:47 PM PDT by Kaslin
MSNBCs The Last Word host Lawrence ODonnell ganged up with Vox editor Ezra Klein Thursday night to discuss recent developments in the on-going showdown between President Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
ODonnell opened the topic by sardonically stating; One of the developments today was the President taking time to publicly proclaim hes not the crazy one. Taking the ever favored side of Crazy Nancy, ODonnell and Klein laughed over Trumps defending himself with Klein quipping, so things are going great in American democracy I guess.
Klein cited The New York Times comparing Trumps actions on Wednesday to those of a dictatorship. Klein also said; It was a scary moment watching him herd his own staff into a room to publicly testify to his own state of mind It was strange, and given the fact that the guy has his hands on a nuclear weapon, its troubling.
One wonders if its more troubling then the medias apparent memory lapse of Pelosis intervention comment, but then it appears that in the eyes of the press, diagnosing Trump is one of Pelosis gifts.
Klein later stated; I think Nancy Pelosi, who has his psychology pegged perfectly since the beginning, is doing a quite nice job baiting him into it step by step. According to Klein, Pelosis impeachment master-plan is falling into place and the liberal media is all here for it. Klein also opinioned that: shes moved him into a place where I think he is building support both in her caucus and I suspect over time in the country.

LAWRENCE ODONNELL: And joining us now, Ezra Klein. Hes the editor at large at Vox and he hosts of the podcast, The Ezra Klein Show. Ezra, theres so much to cover here tonight. One of the developments today was the president taking time to publicly proclaim hes not the crazy one here.
EZRA KLEIN: So things are going great in American democracy I guess.
ODONNELL: Yes, I didnt know quite how to put that.
KLEIN: Theres a nice line in The New York Times piece about that in the moments he began going around the room. And if you have not looked at this video, by the way, you at home, go online and look at this. The New York Times had this side in their piece saying in a ritual rarely seen in a democracy, it looked like the kind of Potemkin moment you see in dictatorships. It was a scary moment watching him herd his own staff into a room to publicly testify to his own state of mind and as you say, publicly rebut a claim that was not actually made about him. It was strange and given the fact that the guy has his hands on a nuclear weapon, its troubling.
Just following the official talking points.
Talking points of the week put out by Pelosi. Good to see media is following orders like obedient, little Commies.
The propaganda arm of the DNC hard at work.
They've called him everything, from stupid (how many of them forged a multibillion dollar multinational financial empire?) to psychotic (and this from people suffering from a serious mass psychosis!).
Now they're calling him strange and "troubling."
They lack the wit to understand that Donald Trump is a highly stable, extremely intelligent, breathtakingly puissant genius, who towers over these mediocre chumps (chimps?) in every way, including morally and spiritually.
So enslaved are they by their delusions that anyone who does not conform to their groupthink seems strange and troubling to them.
It is they who are strange and troubling--and stupid and delusional.
Amazing. These jerks have lost all sense of objectivity. Can they not see that she is suffering from some type of cognitive decline? There's a whole lot of psychological projection going on, on that side.
“Doesnt he k ow that Republicans are supposed to cave?”
To the insane and disordered, normalcy would appear strange and troubling.
Strange compared to what?
Pelosi...... Now that’s strange
Pelosi and Schumer lied about what happened. Kellyanne said you all can see the video tape we have it on CCTV. I would love to the WH release that footage.
“Trumps Behavior Strange, Troubling”
What a strange thing to say. It troubles me, deeply. Perhaps their family and colleagues should do an intervention.
I find the behavior of MSNBC’s on-air lineup strange and disturbing! So there!!! ;)
Lawrence is not too far from the likes of former Ed Schultz. Ed went off the deep end in hatred.
The Leftist Media People are vicious slanderers.
I hope God will see that they are brought to justice and punishment on this physical plane but I will accept His Plan in any case.
If He wants us to act He will have to give us signs.
I have always wondered if the Dems are like the Amalekites, Hittites, Peruzzites, Canaanites and Egyptians. I guess all of us have wondered that (kidding).
He has effectively bypassed the ability of the corporate media to set the narrative. The only way they could regain their former power is for him to withdraw from the spotlight which he has set up for himself.
Lawrence ODonnell says Trumps behavior is disturbing. Is it this disturbing?
Dictatorship? If it were these people would have been in prison long ago. Instead Trump still believes in the rule of law and is relying on his DoJ to bring people to justice. They are quite lucky Trump has generally chosen his people so poorly. Perhaps Barr will be the exception.
