POTUS: “You can’t handle the truth”

“All I can think of when I hear Donald Trump on the clips that we play, and we talk about him, obviously, a lot, is the Jack Nicholson character in ‘A Few Good Men,’ when he looks into the camera and he’s in the courtroom and says, ‘you can’t handle the truth.’ And I think that’s where we are with Donald Trump,” says Morning Joe contributor Mike Barnicle. “He can’t handle the truth. He has created his own lost empire, and he just rambles around from one press conference to another.” Watch more of the conversation here between Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough and Barnicle about President Donald Trump’s continued “mistakes” of downplaying the longevity of the novel coronavirus, following Trump’s most recent statement that the coronavirus would eventually be “eradicated” with or without a vaccine so that Americans and businesses could return to normal life and operations.
