Donald Trump may soon announce that he will run for president because he has a seizure over the grime revealed about him in the Jan. 6 hearings, and because he has “all the impulse control of a freaking toddler,” mocked a former GOP- officer Saturday.
“In the end he will do what he wants. He has shown that time and again”, Kurt Bardella, a former deputy communications director for the GOP-controlled House Oversight and Government Reform Committee told MSNBC. (He is now a Democrat and news commentator.)
“This guy has the impulse control of a freaking toddler. So no one should be surprised at all. I think the Republicans, yes, this is the golem they created,” Bardella added.
Bardella responded to a New York Times Story On Friday, Trump hopes a souped-up announcement about the presidency will — yet again — distract the public from a “stream of damaging revelations,” and could declare he’s competing as early as this month.
“We all know from past experience that Donald Trump doesn’t care about anyone but Donald Trump,” Bardella told MSNBC host Alex Witt. “So I’m not surprised that given the criticism that’s now mounting, after the January 6 hearings, he’s thinking about pulling the trigger now.”
That timing is likely to “mess up” things for Republicans ahead of the midterm elections, as more negative testimonials contaminate the candidate, Bardella said. But it’s what Republicans deserve to tie their future to Trump, he said.
“You know what, Donald?” said Bardel. “Go out, show everyone who you are, what you want to do, let the Republican Party implode before November.”
“These guys have been trying to divorce themselves from Donald Trump for the past five years; they just lacked the courage, the ability, the guts to actually do it,” Bardella added. Behind the scenes, “they’re rooting for the Jan. 6 commission.”
Bardella claimed that “no one was excited anymore” about the powerful testimony given early this week Cassidy Hutchinson then “Republicans who want to get rid of Donald Trump.”
Among her most damning revelations, Hutchinson, who was an aide to former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, testified that Trump wanted to stop screening for rioters January 6, 2021, known to carry weapons, and which allowed them to march toward the Capitol that day. †They are not here to hurt meHutchinson quoted Trump.
