MSNBC’s Nance: Trump ‘Thinks He’s a Mafia Boss’

Sunday on MSNBC’s AM Joy, hosted by media activist Joy Reid, purported “national security analyst” Malcolm Nance claimed that President Trump sees himself as a “macho” “mafia boss” who likes “war criminals” like pardoned Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher and pardoned Army Veterans Clint Lorance and Matthew Golsteyn.

Commenting on reports that Trump wants to campaign with the three, Nance said, “Donald Trump decided he likes war criminals, and he calls them warfighter and a new word he adopted. Need I remind you that he’s a five-time draft dodger. He refused to serve in a war which would have tested his level as a man, and he hid behind his father to get a deferment so he would not have to fight and make tough, moral decisions here.”

“Trump wants this type of person around him. He thinks he’s a mafia boss and a head of a criminal clan and he thinks having these brutal foot soldiers around him is macho. It is nothing. It is dishonorable and cowardly.”

What’s dishonorable and cowardly is to hide your bias and activism behind the facade of “analyst.”
