MSNBC’s Glaude: Trump’s Ignorance, Corruption, Greed a ‘Deadly Combination’ for Democracy

Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Deadline,” Princeton University professor and network contributor Eddie Glaude, Jr. said he believed President Donald Trump’s “combination of ignorance, corruption, and sheer selfishness and greed” was a “deadly combination” for our democracy.

Glaude said, “He’s corrupt and stupid, to be honest with you. There is a level of shallowness here that is evidenced—we know he has no curiosity whatsoever. We know he revels in his ignorance. That’s why he thinks he can rely on his gut. We know that he is out of his depth in every room, every crowd, every space he steps into. And he’s willing to break any law to pursue his own agenda. So the combination of ignorance, corruption, and sheer selfishness and greed is a deadly combination for our democracy.”
