“The reviews outside the White House were more mixed. ‘The guy up there seems crazy,’ said one senior GOP aide. ‘I’ve thought that the whole time.’
“The aide acknowledged, though, that the audience wasn’t necessarily Washington. ‘But how does this play outside the beltway? It might play pretty well. I can’t say if he killed it or if he was terrible. I just know I was watching the whole time, the whole hour and 20 minutes,’ the aide said.”
That quote is from an article in Politico by Josh Dawsey and Alex Isenstadt about Trump’s remarkable 75-minute press conference today. This matches my own reaction as well as that of most of the media that are not right-wing.
Trump is crazy. He is incompetent. He is unhinged. We’re in serious trouble.
