'Morning Joe' panel crushes 'buffoon-like' Trump for botched meeting with Angela Merkel

President Donald Trump earned widespread derision for his botched meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel last week, especially after the president lashed out at a German reporter for supposedly spouting “fake news” at the two leaders’ joint press conference.

Via Mediaite, the panel at Morning Joe on Monday hammered Trump for his handling of the meeting, as co-host Joe Scarborough described it as “spectacularly clumsy, short-sighted, some might even say stupid.”

Co-host Mike Brzezinski helpfully chimed in to say that Trump’s performance during the joint press conference — and in particular, his refusal to shake Merkel’s hand during a photo op — was “buffoon-like.”

Washington Post columnist David Ignatius didn’t go that far, but he did agree with the Morning Joe hosts that Trump did not handle his first face-to-face meeting with Merkel well.

2. the shortcomings of trump reflects in his failure to be dignified and presidential

a narcissistic bully really has no comprehension how others see him except in the very narrow view of you are either with us or you are my enemies....his basic instinct is to destroy all those who run counter with him


the worse kind of person for any leadership position of any type
