Woodward: Trump Failed Himself, He Failed The Country And The GOP | Morning Joe | MSNBC


  1. Even with actual words of Donald Trump confessing he knew what exactly how deadly the virus is, it won’t change a single Trump supporters mind.

    1. @Vaughn Besley If you do actually read the information from our government then how many deaths are there as of today?

    2. @Jeffrey Dahmer She was aware that the Chinese people already in your country were not bringing in the virus. They were being subjected to the racism.

    3. @Jeffrey Dahmer like the party Trump throws with Putin in Moscow! Like those kind of parties! LMFAO geez you’re sooo stupid! No wonder the world keeps laughing at Trump and his supporters!

    1. @Emily Maiden guess you missed the point. I was responding to a claim that Trump is broke, so I quoted a few statistics. I agree with your Comment, I too don’t judge a person by their bank account

    1. That’s the truth. Trump will talk to ANYONE who will listen to him, because he’s SO desperate for an audience. He is a sick, twisted, evil little man.

    2. he needs no friends he is white, a certain number of money people will back him without even listening to him. sad huh?

    1. If after 4 years his slogan is stil MAGA, it means that he hasn’t done anything in that time, his regime has been a royal MAGAfailure.

  2. Bob Woodward answered his own question. Yes, if told the truth, Americans WOULD have “rallied around.” That would have unified the country, and Trump doesn’t want to unify the country. He wants to divide and even splinter Americans from each other.

    1. When we finally get to the truth about Trump’s objective, we’ll find Trump has been acting at the direction of Vlad ‘The Poisoner’ Putin.

    2. @John Swo All the Time. SMH.
      Watch when you finally get Trump’s Taxes, his School Record, and especially his Health records.
      Then maybe they Wake up and throw out the Kool-aid

    3. I dont think so, but he is clueless, stupid and ignorant… therefor putin put him up to do nothing, think about it, who else gain from americas division and downfall

    4. Divide & conquer was always his plan .. from day 1 the shocking thing for me is that this was not obvious to everyone . Stay safe

  3. Trump needs to resign or 25 th Amendment…even if loses he will be in White House till Jan 20…he can make even more of a mess…

    1. For them to invoke the 25th amendment the VP (Pense) has to be willing to agree with the Spreaker of the House (Pelosi) that the president is no longer fit to serve. I don’t see that happening, Pense doesn’t have the ethics and fortitude to go against trump in such an action He was supposedly the head of the pandemic council( can’t remember what they called it) and i saw him speak once about what that committee was doing, if he was head he would have been orchestrating PPE and all the other medically related needs across the country but he sat back and let Trump do nothing
      Ivanka told her daddy to pick Pense for VP because he is willing to sit in the background and be unseen but able to bring the evangelical vote with him.

    2. I continue to predict:
      1. If Trump wins he and his cult will go on a rampage of revenge and destruction.
      2. If Trump loses he and his cult will go on a rampage of revenge and destruction.

    3. I’m actually more scared of the lame duck 2 months because tRump and republicans will do a slash and burn policy

  4. You are misunderstanding what Trump meant when he said he didn’t want people to panic. He meant he didn’t want the STOCK MARKET TO FALL. He played down the virus because his measure of success was the Stock Market, not people’s lives! Even on the 19th phone call, when Bob is trying to explain to him that the people are concerned about the virus, he still keeps asking/saying about the stock market coming back…….

    1. They’re his supporters. The stock market people (if there’s a better name for them, let me know!) are his supporters and the only supporters he cares about.

  5. Our “president” warned us about immigrants coming here taking our jobs but couldn’t properly warned us about covid-19.

    1. And the best part is asylum seekers can’t even take your jobs because anyone who employs legally can’t even hire them. So the whole panic over jobs is BS.

    2. @Mike C not even just jobs people won’t do. They can’t even get an above the table job until they finish their immigration work. It’s not like they can steal legal jobs. It’s so ridiculous that people are afraid. They can’t even get welfare!!

    3. Trump warned the suburban house wife’s of minorities living and raiding their neighborhoods, but didn’t sound the alarm on covid-19.

    1. Getting too close to Trump’s fecal iceberg of corruption always makes a person dirty. Trump passes on corruption like it was an STD!

    2. MAE Gary I didn’t say everyone, I said everything…although I am sure that he had some “weaker links” to do things they wouldn’t have done otherwise!

  6. Trump on coronavirus: _”Nothing more could be done.”_

    He was right. When you intend to do nothing, nothing more _can_ be done. Given the choice between watching Fox News & golfing, or doing something about a virus which has killed two hundred thousand US citizens on their home turf… Fox & golf it is then.

    And people are still going to vote for him? And Americans have the brass balls to claim they live in the best country in the world?

    [Edit: I a word out]

    1. Doing nothing, long weekend golf trips, and holding beer hall rallies where you spew lies didn’t stop the spread of the Trump pandemic.

    2. American here among us and do NOT lump us all into a sum of stupidity to being braggarts about how “great” our nation is….We know it’s not. Shove your “brass balls” comment.

    3. Trust me, only fools have believed that myth. Just like tRump, they say the same thing over and over again until they believe it.

    4. People are still going to vote for him, and I hope even through covid quarantine they see that it’s not the place it purports itself to be, and that that’s what their vote will amount to.

  7. Everything Trump touches dies. Covid deaths yesterday (Trump admin #s):
    USA: 1,027
    Canada: 9
    Haiti: 0
    Nigeria: 5
    Chad: 1

    Trump is the most incompetent leader in the world by orders of magnitude.

    1. Yes, genocide : through lies, mis information, fear mongering, firing the good people, inciting riots, holding corona rallies…… Etc etc etc

  8. Seriously, no compassion for the “little people”, it’s just us vs them, everyman for themself..I’ve got mine, good luck with your life.

  9. He didn’t ‘fail’ himself. He did exactly as is his nature: to enrich himself and his spawn/posey at the expense of others under the guise of ‘Make America Great Again’.
