Democratic Congresswoman: ‘Unhinged’ Trump Is ‘Acting Like a Petulant Child’

Rep. Kathleen Rice hammered President Donald Trump on Friday over his handling of the dismissal of FBI Director James Comey and for minimizing the threat posed by Russia.

Anchor Wolf Blitzer prompted the New York Democrat for her take on the President’s Tweet that appeared to threaten Comey.

“It shows a president in my mind that is becoming increasingly more unhinged,” Rice said. “To say something like that to someone in a threatening way — what is the point of that?”

The congresswoman later contended that “Trump is acting like a petulant child.”

Rep. Rice also cited her recent visit to Ukraine with a group of her congressional colleagues from both parties:

“During this whole week, when this was all going on, I was with a bipartisan group of my colleagues in Ukraine, and they know better than anyone what Russia meddling in their lives — what cost that comes at, right? You look at Poland. You look at the recent elections in France. Everyone knows what Russia does to try to influence democratic elections all across the world; and it was no different in November of 2016 here.”

She then underlined that “it seems that Donald Trump is the only person that doesn’t want to admit that, and you have to wonder why he keeps attacking that one issue.”
