Trump Reportedly Furious And Zoned Out As Criminal Charges Loom
Former president Donald Trump is reportedly fuming and “disconnected” from the real world as the multiple investigations into his scandals come to a crescendo and criminal charges appear to be around the corner, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough said during Monday’s edition of “Morning Joe.”
Trump faces legal peril on multiple fronts, including criminal investigations into his handling of Classified information, his role in the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, as well as multiple lawsuits into himself and his family-owned business.
Scarborough discussed the former president’s quagmire with co-host Mika Brzezinski, highlighting the alternate reality Trump had constructed around himself at Mar-a-Lago.
“He’s isolated, he’s alone down there, he remains angry, disconnected, it seems to be another reality. He has created this reality around him, except all of his former advisers seem to be saying that he doesn’t want to hear from anybody unless they’re going to sit there and tell him yes all day,” Scarborough said. “So there are no guardrails left, but also there’s nobody there to say, don’t — put those down, you look like a fool.”
Brzezinski agreed, comparing Trump’s alternate reality to “la-la-land.”
“It’s sort of kind of like a little la-la land that he’s created for himself, and I say that, you know, in a realistic way where he has created his own reality, and nobody, nobody around him, you know, they fear, actually, telling him the truth or bringing him bad news,” she said. “We’ll read from the piece a little later on. It’s quite colorful in terms of what has happened to his life, this sort of strange world that he’s created at Mar-a-Lago amidst all these legal challenges.”
