Donald Trump may soon announce that he will run for president because he has a meltdown over the filth revealed about him in the January 6 hearings, and because he has “all the impulsive control of a toddler,” a former GOP official mocked on Saturday. .
“At the end of the day, he’ll do what he wants. He’s shown it time and time again,” Kurt Bardella, former deputy director of communications for the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, told MSNBC. by the GOP. (He is now a Democrat and news commentator.)
“This guy has the impulsive control of a creepy toddler. So no one should be surprised by that. I think the Republicans, yeah, that’s the golem they created,” Bardella added.
Bardella was responding to a New York Times article on Friday that Trump hopes a heightened announcement regarding his presidential bid — yet again — will divert the public from a “damaging stream of revelations” and could declare he is stepping into the race from the start. like this month.
“We all know from past experiences that Donald Trump doesn’t care about anyone but Donald Trump,” Bardella told MSNBC host Alex Witt. “So it doesn’t surprise me that in the face of the criticism piling up right now, following the January 6 hearings, that he’s thinking about pulling the trigger now.”
This moment will likely “spoil” things for Republicans heading into midterms as more negative testimonials taint the candidate, Bardella said. But that’s what Republicans deserve for tying their future to Trump, he said.
“You know what, Donald? Bardela said. “Go out there, show everyone who you are, what you want to do, implode the Republican Party before November.”
“These guys have wanted a divorce from Donald Trump for five years; they just lacked the guts, the ability, the guts to do it,” Bardella added. Behind the scenes, “they support the January 6 committee”.
Bardella claimed “nobody was more excited” by Cassidy Hutchinson’s powerful testimony earlier this week than “the Republicans who want to do without Donald Trump.”
Among her most damning revelations, Hutchinson, who was an aide to former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, said Trump wanted to drop screening of rioters on Jan. 6, 2021, who were known to carry guns, and allow them to march to the Capitol that day. “They’re not here to hurt mesaid Hutchinson, quoting Trump.
