Tim Ryan: ‘Vicious,’ ‘Crude’ Trump ‘Couldn’t Even Pretend for a Few Hours’ to Be Presidential

Thursday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) said President Donald Trump could not even pretend to be presidential when visiting Dayton, OH and El Paso, TX in the aftermath of two mass shootings.

Ryan said, “Beneath the dignity of the office. We all thought he was going to be able to at least pretend for a day and he couldn’t. He couldn’t even pretend for a few hours. And he’s just so vicious. I mean, it’s just —you know, I watched Nan Whaley for two days here hold this city together, amazing leadership and a heartbroken town and state and country. And she was phenomenal. To just be so crude, it’s so beneath the office. It is to be expected from him, but it’s time for a change. We need that change to happen in the United States.”
