During Sunday's edition of Reliable Sources, the panel weighed in on the resignation of Defense Secretary James Mattis, with CNN's favorite has-been, Carl Bernstein, reporting from liberals' favorite city (Paris); arguing that Mattis's resignation as well as the government shutdown raise the question of "the fitness or unfitness of Donald Trump to be President of the United States," claiming that Mattis's resignation letter has led to a "much greater consensus that he is unfit to be the President of the United States...that he is unfit on psychological grounds, that he is unfit, perhaps, because of his contempt for the law, and particularly unfit in his conduct of foreign policy in such a way as to be a danger himself." Bernstein suggested that journalists "need to be going to all Republican members of the House and Senate and having serious discussions with them, questions, on background, what do they think about the fitness of Donald Trump to be President of the United States?"  Bernstein also described the Trump Presidency as an "untruthful Presidency" and claimed that President Trump has unwittingly served as a "tool of a hostile foreign power."
