CNN Panel Criticizes Trump's 'Uber Inappropriate' Behavior on 9/11: 'It's Like He's Missing a Human Screw'


During Tuesday's edition of The Lead With Jake Tapper, the panel engaged in a discussion about the President's behavior on the seventeenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.  After Former Chief of Staff to Senator Mitch McConnell Josh Holmes criticized MSNBC's Joe Scarborough for writing an op-ed suggesting President Trump presented a greater threat to the country than "any terrorist attack ever could," CNN Political Commentator Angela Rye accused Holmes of holding Scarborough to a higher standard than the President, whose behavior she described as "uber inappropriate."  Rye specificially took issue with his "fist-pumping going to Shanksville" and his "thumbs-upping reporters getting ready to tour a national site."  Former State Department Official Jen Psaki also weighed in, suggesting "It's not even about like the Commander in Chief and what's appropriate. It's like he's missing a human screw."  When Psaki praised Twitter statements made by President Trump's three predecessors in honor of 9/11, Rye jumped in: "Maybe there's something he can do. How about copy and paste? Maybe copy and paste Barack Obama's tweet or George W. Bush's..."  Anti-Trump Republican Amanda Carpenter could not resist taking a jab at the First Lady, reacting to Rye's proposal by saying "Only Melania plagiarizes."
