President Donald Trump‘s feud with Morning Joe hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski has dominated the news for the past two days. It has drowned out most of the talk about the Senate health care plan, or the energy policy initiatives the White House was touting as part of “energy week.”
CNN’s Brianna Keilar believes Trump is culpable because he’s continued to Tweet at the hosts.
“Why is the president wasting his time?” Keilar asked Friday on CNN.
Keilar noted that energy week hasn’t garnered any attention as a result, sarcastically asking anchor Brooke Baldwin, “Did you know it’s energy week?”
“This seems like such a waste of presidential capital,” Keilar added. “This is a president whose approval rating is very low and he has a lot of things to do.”
She added, “And this is how he’s spending his time. I mean, it’s really — it’s sort of — it’s unbelievable when he has his work cut out.”
