Trump’s Take on Tragedy in Houston

“The presidency certainly has a learning curve to it. It's something that certainly Donald Trump is unused to knowing anything about -- the Presidency. But human nature doesn't need a learning curve, the idea of empathy doesn't need a learning curve. You either have it internally, instinctively, or you don't have it. And I don't think there's anyone in America or very few people in America watching these scenes who are not stunned by the scope and the relentless nature of this tragedy — and the staff work that was lacking. That’s what struck me yesterday about the President’s inability to mention death and the suffering that’s going on. The staff work concerning Sgt. Steve Perez, 61 years of age, two days after his 61st birthday, drowns. A police officer that the President wasn't told about….The whole day was kind of stunning in his inability….” says Morning Joe senior contributor Mike Barnicle as the panel talks about President Donald Trump's visit to Texas in the wake of Tropical Storm Harvey’s devastation.
