Trump has already announced his intention to run for a second term in 2020 but that hasn’t stopped Joe Scarborough from engaging in fantasy. The Morning Joe host has apparently given up on the Russia collusion narrative, like many other Democrats, and has moved on to this.
He writes at the Washington Post:
It’s becoming clear that Trump won’t run in 2020
It has been nearly three years since Donald Trump descended his faux-gold escalator to announce an improbable run for president, and Republican politicians seem just as baffled by the reality TV star’s future as they were the day he first launched this publicity stunt gone wildly wrong…
But while the president and his team of misfit lawyers have reason to tread carefully under stormy legal skies, Republicans on Capitol Hill can relax. It’s becoming clear that Trump will not be running for president in 2020…
This past week, White House office pools reportedly set up in anticipation of the next staff firing are shifting their focus to predicting which Trump family member will be the first to land behind bars. Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s independent investigation into Russia may have inspired a defiant West Wing response, but the U.S. attorney’s raid of Michael Cohen’s home, office and hotel room has stirred more fear and loathing inside White House offices than at any time since President Richard Nixon battled Watergate prosecutors in the summer of 1973.
Joe’s obsession with Trump seems unhealthy, doesn’t it? What is he going to say about this column when Trump runs for and wins a second term?
