WaPo’s Eugene Robinson: You Have to Wonder About Trump’s ‘Mental Condition’ — Suggests ‘Some Kind of Dementia’

Monday on MSNBC’s “Hardball,” Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson discussed reports that President Donald Trump had questioned the authenticity of the infamous “Access Hollywood” tape released weeks before the 2016 presidential election and said one had to “wonder about the president’s mental condition.”

Robinson said, “Obviously if he is going to defend Roy Moore as he has been doing, then people are going to look back to that more than a dozen women who have accused him of sexual misconduct. But so now with this maybe it’s not authentic there are only two possibilities. He is lying. He is plain outright lying, or there is some kind of dementia going on.”

After host Chris Matthew laughed, Robinson added, “No I’m serious. That if the president can convince himself that a tape which he has apologized for, acknowledged and apologized for, is not authentic, if he can convince even himself of that much less anybody else, you actually have to wonder about the president’s mental condition. You really do.”
