During Monday’s The 11th Hour on MSNBC, serial liar Brian Williams trotted of an expert panel of Trump critics and let them loose to smear the President’s actions against North Korea. “On the one hand, Brian, when you have a dangerous stand-off with a nuclear-armed adversary, of course, you would like to think that within our government we have stability, methodical planning, every step is very calculated,” declared Politico’s Michael Crowley, “And I'm not sure we can be certain that that’s happening in this administration right now.”
Crowley began his comments by suggesting that Trump’s approach to foreign policy is that of Nixon’s “madman theory.” Basically, the theory says you act so unpredictably that your adversary can’t predict your actions and will come to the table to negotiate.
“But I definitely see that as part of the strategy here, to kind of psych the North Koreans out, to try to dislodge this status quo, by suggesting we're just crazy enough to do the thing that George W. Bush or Barack Obama would never do,” he explained, “I just don't think it has a high probability of working.”
Those comments opened the floodgates and unleashed anti-Trump condemnation from the other commentators.
