Trump: “In Putin’s Pocket"

“To use a phrase: Yesterday really was a day to cry for the country. This great republic that means so much to so many around the world. To see the president of the United States, Mr. Trump, shrink – shrink – next to Vladimir Putin, to drop his oath of office, to drop his duty on a world stage — to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. And then to have so many here in this country, on TV programs like this one say, ‘what a surprise.’ No, this was not a surprise. This was Mr. Trump in full view of the world. This is who he is: ignorant, narcissistic, all involved with himself. His priority is himself, not the country, not the presidency. He is unaware of history. He was unaware certainly yesterday of anything that this republic has stood for through the ages. The only thing he was aware of, clearly, was that he was in Putin’s pocket,” says veteran columnist Mike Barnicle as the Morning Joe panel talks about the fallout from President Donald Trump’s summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland, the day after the gathering between the two leaders, where President Trump sided with President Putin over US intelligence on the topic of Russian interfered in the 2016 presidential election.
