While Bob Woodward is more stoic in his public discussion of the predicament this nation finds itself in (lambasting the ‘fake news’ media rather than directing his ire at the body politik), his partner in un-crime, legendary Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein, called the Trump administration a “malignant presidency” on Saturday, and suggested that the wrongdoings committed by the White House were unprecedented.
Speaking on CNN, The Hill reports that Bernstein warned that the Trump administration is “not functioning,” and appears to hint at a ‘soft coup’ amid the nation’s deep state…
“We are in the midst of a malignant presidency,” Bernstein said. “That malignancy is known to the military leaders of the country, it’s known to the Republican leadership in Congress who recognize it, and it’s known to the intelligence community.”
“The presidency of Donald Trump is not functioning,” he continued. “It’s really not functioning because the character and capabilities of this president are called into grave question in a way that those that know him are raising serious concerns about.”
