During an appearance on Tuesday's edition of CNN Newsroom With Brooke Baldwin, CNN political analyst Carl Bernstein, of Watergate fame, cited the departure of National Security Advisor John Bolton from the Trump administration as "the most convincing evidence that we've seen of late that we have a governing crisis under this President; a dire crisis in which the national security of the United States is not secure because of the conduct of the President of the United States." According to Bernstein, President Trump "cannot conduct a coherent presidency, a coherent administration." Bernstein also claimed that "we don't have functional governance for the first time in our modern history in this country because of the conduct of this President of the United States." After Baldwin pointed out the pressing national security issues facing the country right now, Bernstein contended "he is handling them in a way that is demonstrably dangerous."
