Trump’s ‘Only Affinity For Reading Anything Were The Hitler Speeches He Kept On His Nightstand,’ Says GOP Strategist




GOP strategist Steve Schmidt, who served as Sen. John McCain’s (R-Ariz.) presidential campaign manager in 2008, said Tuesday that President Trump’s “only affinity for reading anything were the Adolf Hitler speeches he kept on his nightstand.”

Schmidt also said Trump’s election victory was a “fluke.”

“So in the 240th year of the independence of the United States, in three states by 78,000 votes, the American people by a fluke elected an imbecilic former reality TV show host and con man whose only affinity for reading anything were the Adolf Hitler speeches he kept on his night stand,” Schmidt during an appearance on “Morning Joe.”

On Tuesday, he argued “America’s decline is now beginning” because of Trump.

“America’s decline is now beginning and we should make no mistake about this. The U.S.-led liberal global order is in peril. It’s in threat,” he said. “Will he take us out of the World Trade Organization? Will he undermine the international system that Franklin Roosevelt conceived, that Harry Truman built, that was sustained through Ronald Reagan and Barack Obama? It’s anyone’s guess, but the idea that tomorrow will be OK because yesterday was or last year was is a naive view of the world.”




The Hill added:

The commentary comes one week after the MSNBC political analyst announced he was leaving the Republican Party.

Schmidt is the second member of the “Morning Joe” team to leave the GOP. In July 2017, Scarborough, a former Republican congressman, announced he was becoming an independent on Stephen Colbert’s late-night show on CBS, citing Trump as the primary reason.

Schmidt, one of the president’s staunchest critics at MSNBC, also slammed Melania Trump on Monday, calling the first lady “a con artist” after she said “kindness, compassion and positivity are very important traits in life” during a speech at the Students Against Destructive Decisions’ annual conference in Tyson’s Corner, Va.
