Heilemann: Trump Is ‘Being Cavalier in a Way That Makes Him Seem Demented and Deranged’

Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” network analyst John Heilemann took a shot President Donald Trump for his tweet declaring he had a “bigger” and “more powerful” nuclear button than North Korean dictator Kim Jung Un.

Heilemann said Trump was being cavalier and described him as “demented and deranged” for that tweet.

“He is not merely being cavalier with a threat about nuclear war,” Heilemann said. “He’s being cavalier in a way that makes him seem demented and deranged, and makes none of our serious allies or adversaries around the world think that he’s a serious person talking in this way about the most serious threat that the world ever faces.”
