As President Donald Trump battles the upheaval of the administration, a falling stock market and the continued closure of the federal government, Joe Scarborough of MSNBC has made a bleak prediction for his term.
"It seems that this administration is final," he said in his broadcast on Christmas Eve Monday. "This government will not survive."
The moderator hosted a discussion forum to talk about Washington's whirlwind news cycle. He pointed to the Washington Post, recently opened by columnist Philip Rucker, who said Trump had gotten out of hand. Behavior was in vain.
Inside the editorial, retired four-star Army General Barry McCaffrey said, "This is a rogue presidency."
"This is a rogue president and the question is at this point, what in the world can the Congress do Congress should do?" He wondered.
While Meacham emphasized that legislators have a responsibility to act, he added, "I also think that it is up to us all, because all too often what we see in Washington is made possible by the fact that Washington is more often a mirror of who we are than that it is a scoundrel of who we are. "
Call Meacham said it was time for citizens to realize that things were changing and not for the better.
"There is still a remarkable number of Americans ready to give the President a passport on these things that … have shattered the basic institutions in a, if not unprecedented, scary way. "
