“If you want to understand the president’s Twitter account and why he’s becoming even more unmoored, if that’s possible, you just look at the very dramatic — I would say radical — shift in public opinion toward impeachment just over the past five, six days,” declared MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough.
He and “Morning Joe” co-host and wife Mika Brzezinski shared new CBS and YouGov polling that shows 55% of Americans are now in favor of the impeachment inquiry into President Trump, who spent last week and weekend tweeting up a storm about the inquiry and insulting various media outlets.
The decision to begin the inquiry came after a whistleblower complaint that Trump sought to use foreign power from Ukraine during a phone call for his own political gain. During the call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky, Trump urged him to investigate Joe Biden’s son.
Come Monday morning, Trump continued to tweet about the whistleblower, writing, “The Fake Whistleblower complaint is not holding up. It is mostly about the call to the Ukrainian President which, in the name of transparency, I immediately released to Congress & the public. The Whistleblower knew almost nothing, its 2ND HAND description of the call is a fraud!”
On Sunday, the president tweeted that he felt he deserves to meet the whistleblower and quoted a Fox News guest who predicted an impeachment would cause a Civil War-like “fracture.”
A representative for the White House did not immediately return a request for comment.
