WaPo’s Marcus: Our System Might Not Be ‘Made to Survive a Category Trump Storm’

IAN HANCHETT

On Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Washington Post Deputy Editorial Page Editor and columnist Ruth Marcus stated America’s system of government is designed to survive a category 3 or 4 storm, but maybe can’t survive “a category Trump storm.”

Marcus said, “[I]f you think about Donald Trump as a hurricane, our system was made to survive a category 3, category four storm. We’re not really sure if it’s made to survive a category Trump storm. And I think that may be…what 2018 is going to tell us, is just how robust these systems are. Look, none of them is perfect, starting with the media. Certainly, we’ve seen a lot of disappointments from the Republican-controlled Congress in being willing to stand up and talk back to President Trump.”
