Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Live,” New York Times columnist Bret Stephens said President Donald Trump’s nepotism could cause problems because first son Donald Trump, Jr. “happens to be an idiot.”
On the Trump Tower meeting with the Russians, President Donald Trump told the Associated Press, “My son’s a good young guy.
Stephens said, “We’ve defined deviancy down with the Trump administration that we’re used to the court of King Donald, his sons and courtiers and so on.
By the way, this is the same story with Saudi Arabia, when you put your son-in-law in charge of foreign policy with Saudi Arabia and then you catch moral laryngitis, as my colleague Frank Bruni put it, you shouldn’t be surprised.
Because your son happens to be, not a young guy, he happens to be an idiot who wanted to collude with a foreign government to subvert an American election.”
