Here are the 5 worst words from Trump’s press conference — and how it could’ve been even worse for his campaign. MSNBC anchor Lawrence O’Donnell broke down the worst part of President Donald Trump’s coronavirus briefing on Tuesday.
“The day after The Washington Post poll showed Donald Trump a full 15 points behind, Trump tried to revive his presidential campaign in a White House briefing with reporters — that was supposed to be about the coronavirus epidemic in the country,” he explained. “What could possibly go wrong?” “It almost could not have been a bigger disaster for Donald Trump. And I say ‘almost’ because, of course, it can always be a bigger disaster for Trump and the Trump campaign,” he explained.
“And one way it could have been a bigger disaster is if the president had gotten a question about intelligence reports saying that Russia had been paying to kill American soldiers in Afghanistan — 14 questions and not one question about intelligence reports saying that Vladimir Putin saying that they are paying to kill troops in Afghanistan, and the president has done nothing about that.”

He listened in on the phone call with [Ukrainian President Volodymyr] Zelensky, a senior State Department official said Monday. NBC News also confirmed Mike Pompeo was listening to that phone call, according to a senior State Department official.” “So, whistles are being blown everywhere now,” he noted. “Mike Pompeo was part of what Nancy Pelosi has called the coverup about that phone call. “Every Trump enabler should fear the sound of the next whistle. “Tonight, Mike Pompeo needs a criminal defense lawyer. “The same goes for Attorney General William Barr,” he noted.

MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell on Nov. 26, 2014 [MSNBC] MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell blasted White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee sanders for her “utterly pointless…press briefing” on Thursday.
While reporters asked questions like it was a normal day, she refused to provide any answers, because she had none. “Once again, the press secretary could not answer the question of why is the president threatening a government shutdown over the wall that Mexico was supposed to pay for,” O’Donnell said. “Now that the president has switched from threatening Mexico about paying for the wall to threatening the United States Congress about paying for the wall, threatening the American people about paying for the wall, naturally, the White House got this question today.”
He showed a clip of Sanders saying that she didn’t think the effort to have Mexico pay for the wall was abandoned.
