On Friday’s Morning Joe, the show’s liberal pundits doubled down on their claim that everybody around Trump thinks he has signs of serious mental deterioration. Host Joe Scarborough did not reveal his source for yesterday’s assertion that Trump has “dementia,” but he and the other panelists used this claim to advocate for current military servicemen and presidential cabinet members to “stand up to Trump” and not follow orders from the President. USA Today senior politics reporter Heidi Przybyla also took the opportunity to misrepresent a poll from the Military Times, claiming that it supported the idea that most military officers think Trump is mentally not “fit” to be commander-in-chief. The poll that she appeared to be referencing asked no such thing of the troops that it surveyed.
