Carl Bernstein Rips Trump: A 'Rageaholic President' With No Understanding of the Rule of Law


Legendary Watergate journalist Carl Bernstein said on CNN on Thursday that in wake of yesterday’s actions and press conference we need to be concerned about a “rageaholic” president with no understanding of the rule of law.

Bernstein’s comments came in the context of a conversation about acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker and the claim — made by White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway‘s husband George T. Conway III — that Trump appointing Whitaker is “unconstitutional.”

Responding to that, Bernstein said this: “What we need to be concerned about is a rageaholic president that we saw yesterday out of control who has no understanding of the importance and primacy of the rule of law in our system.”


“Look, Trump has made no secret whatsoever that he wants to bury the Mueller investigation,” he said. “If he is as innocent of all of these things as he maintains, no collusion, no obstruction, he should welcome this investigation. We are watching a president whose back is to the wall trying to earn himself a get out of jail pass, figuratively speaking, not literally, by manipulating the system of justice in the United States in a way that goes far farther than Nixon did in Watergate.”

Bernstein then stressed the ones complicit in all of this are the Republicans in Congress.
