Tuesday, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) appeared with Wolf Blitzer on CNN’s The Situation Room.
Blitzer asked Schiff if he thinks it’s possible Trump’s judgement is being impaired by a steroid he’s taking as a treatment for Coronavirus.
Schiff replied “Well, you know, in my view, Wolf, on the best of days, the president’s thinking isn’t too sound, so if there’s any impairment, it’s a real problem. To me, this harkens back to the president proudly boasting that he’s going to take responsibility for shutting down the government.”
He continued “Well, he’s now proudly taking responsibility for denying the American people help in their time of crisis. Basically, today, Donald Trump told the country, if you’re a small businessperson and you’re going under, too bad for you, I’m not going to bother with it until after the election. If you’ve lost your job and you’re on unemployment compensation, your benefits have run out, that’s too bad.”
“That doesn’t affect me. I don’t care. I’ll deal with that later. You know, this is so irresponsible, when millions are suffering. And, of course, politically, it makes no sense for him to do either. So, it does call into question his judgment, certainly, but whether he’s being impaired by these drugs,” he added.
