The panel on Monday's edition of The Situation Room obsessed over a segment of President Trump's interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos, where President Trump "becomes really angry at his Chief of Staff, Mick Mulvaney." President Trump expressed his frustration with Mulvaney, who was audibly coughing as President Trump sat down with Stephanopoulos in the Oval Office. President Trump and Stephanopoulos were discussing the President's financial statement and whether or not he was going to release his tax returns when Mulvaney began to cough. Perhaps with that in mind, CNN Contributor Bianna Golodryga raised a conspiracy theory relating to Mulvaney's coughing: "one theory I read and I didn't even think about it from this perspective but given the subject and the sensitivity surrounding his tax returns, somebody pointed out that maybe it was Mick Mulvaney trying to save the President." In other words, according to this theory, Mulvaney was coughing on purpose so that President Trump would not have to talk about his financial statement and tax returns.
