Monday on MSNBC’s “Live,” Washington Post opinion writer Jennifer Rubin declared President Donald Trump’s policies were built on “fantastical lies.”
Partial transcript as follows:
TUR: This seems ridiculous frankly. It seems like everything everyone said when Donald Trump was running for president about how this was just not feasible is coming true. This is what happens when you elect somebody who made grand promises that couldn’t be enacted.
RUBIN: This is the central problem that Donald Trump has, which is that his policy ideas, if you can even call them that, are built on these fantastical lies. We can pull out of Syria because ISIS is defeated. No else one believes that. We can build a wall across two thousand miles of border. No one believes that. We can get every one fantastic medical care at less than Obamacare and not have any of the requirements. He couldn’t do that. He makes these fantastical promises because he really has no interest in the details, he’s just out there selling. Just like he sold tough steaks, just he sold rotten vodka, just like he sold Trump U. He is a salesman. What he doesn’t do and what he has never done throughout his career is actually deliver. It’s not something he has interest in doing. Now he’s trapped. Now two years in people are actually, on his side, expecting him to pay up, to do something.
