Trump keeps his unsecured phone, staff fears telling him facts
And some people wonder why so many people are angry and fearful that the man in the Oval Office acts like a clueless buffoon:
[R]eports about Trump indicate that he is “dogged by insecurity over his loss of the popular vote in the election and a persistent frustration that the legitimacy of his presidency is being challenged by Democrats and the media, aides and associates say.” This prompted him on Wednesday to say that he plans to launch an investigation into voter fraud, even though there is no merit to the claims that any significant fraud occurred at all (much less enough to account for Trump’s nearly 3 million vote deficit in the popular vote).
On the other hand, Trump is reportedly starting to enjoy living in the White House, although The New York Times article which also noted “Trump has the television — and his old, unsecured Android phone, to the protests of some of his aides — to keep him company.”
On Wednesday’s edition of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski and Willie Geist painted a portrait of a White House staff failing to be candid with trump about the mess he is in:
Geist offered, “Donald Trump can’t stand hearing that somehow he’s not a legitimate president, that he won fewer votes than Hillary Clinton.”
“And his team can’t beat to tell him the truth,” Brzezinski chimed in. “That’s bad,” noting that Spicer is simply spouting things off from the James Brady Press Briefing Room, “because his boss wants to hear [them].”
Mike Barnicle added to POTUS directly, “Act like the President.”
