Sunday on CNN’s Reliable Sources, disgraced former CBS Evening News anchor Dan Rather called President Trump “a combination of selfishness and stupidity.”
“As members of the press, we have to keep doing our job, which is keep telling people, keep reminding people through use of facts and quotes of how unusually unique this is to have, number one, a president who says in advance of the election that if it doesn’t appear to go his way, he is going to try to tie it up in the courts and he will not commit to a peaceful transfer of power at the top, even if the indication is that he has lost,” Rather claimed falsely. “Number two, there has never been anything approaching this in the way of voter suppression by any president of the United States.”
Fact check: Trump has engaged in no voter suppression. But let’s talk about the left’s push for voter fraud.
“As to his mental condition, I know there is a theory — he is mentally unstable,” he continued. “I am not qualified to say that.” After admitting he has no qualifications to do so, Rather then goes on to psychoanalyze Trump, concluding that “We have a combination of selfishness and stupidity operating our White House. People, I think, will see that eventually.” Actually, what people will see eventually is that Trump’s legacy will be as one of America’s greatest presidents.
As to Rather’s mental condition: he is a bitter, biased liar.
