On Thursday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Newsroom,” special correspondent Jamie Gangel stated one of her Republican sources told her President Donald Trump’s behavior shook many Republican legislators at a White Home conference on Wednesday.
Gangel said, “So we have some new reporting, and I’m going to place on my glasses to read some of the quotes due to the fact that they’re so stunning. The bottom line is, Nancy Pelosi, as you just said, was not the only person shocked coming out of there. We have actually spoken to a Republican source who was in the room. I’m told that they were alarmed at his demeanor. Quote, ‘Everyone left completely shaken, shell surprised. He is not in control of himself. It is all screaming and shouting.'”
She continued, “And I asked the source, you know, who’s been in numerous conferences with them, has it changed? Is it even worse? Since every week we discuss, is it becoming worse? The source said, ‘100%.'”
She included, “I asked, are you fretted about his stability? And the source said, ‘yes.’ The source went on to talk to other senior Republicans who remained in the conference. They were likewise shocked. One utilized the word ‘sickened.'”
She concluded, “They got a sense of the Pentagon, the generals who were there, and they were very upset and the same thing. That this goes beyond simply a policy distinction. They were worried about his disposition. “
