The “Woe is Me” Presidency

In discussing President Donald J. Trump’s press conference at his Trump National Golf Club Bedminster, Morning Joe veteran columnist Mike Barnicle explains: “It’s a theme that he has perfected, and it’s not the Art of the Deal. It’s the President of the United States outlining the “art of victimization” — and he is always the victim. He’s always the victim in everything that occurs that’s negative about his presidency, everything that can’t get done, everything that he doesn’t participate in — in the way a president ought to participate in — like the health care legislation. It’s victimization. It’s, ‘woe is me. Why did they do this to me?” Listen to more of the discussion on President Trump here with Joe Scarborough and John Heilemann. Only on MSNBC.
