Robert Reich Calls Trump a ‘Mad King’

Wednesday on MSNBC’s All In, former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich compared President Trump to British King George III, known as the “Mad King.”

“This is the night before Independence Day, where we fought a tyrant, we declared independence from what essentially was a mad king,” Reich said. “We created a constitution, a constitution with checks and balances and separation of powers. And now we have a mad king back again that basically is defying all of the constitutional provisions, thumbing his nose at the Supreme Court, pushing the envelope as far he possibly can and then some in terms of getting his way, not allowing any Congressional oversight, basically saying to the House, ‘I’m not giving anything. I’m instructing everybody to say no to anything appearing before you, to providing any documents…’ I think he is laying a predicate for impeachment, actually.”
