The set of “Morning Joe” was none too pleased by President Donald Trump’s latest Twitter barbs thrown at North Korea over the size of the countries’ respective “nuclear buttons.”
On Wednesday’s show, the MSNBC regulars competed with each over who could be more outraged by the president’s latest tweets. John Heilemann had the strongest response, suggesting that the whole affair made Trump look crazy.
“He is not merely being cavalier with a threat about nuclear war. He’s being cavalier in a way that makes him seem demented and deranged,” said Heilemann. “Anybody who treated this cavalierly would be roundly condemned by all serious people if both parties.”
