Carl Bernstein: “Homicidal" Trump Turned His Supporters Into “Sacrificial Lambs"
Reporter Carl Bernstein said this week that a “homicidal” President Trump has turned his own supporters into “sacrificial lambs” in service of his reelection, HuffPost reports.
Bernstein’s damning assessment comes after Trump held an indoor campaign rally with a largely mask-free audience in Nevada on Sunday, breaking all guidelines for holding events amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“We are witnessing a homicidal president convening ― purposefully ― a homicidal assembly to help him get reelected as president of the United States instead of protecting the health and welfare of the people of the United States including his own supporters whose lives he is willing to sacrifice.”
Bernstein also accused Trump of being a hypocrite, as the president claims to be pro-life when it comes to unborn children:
“Here is this president who has staked part of his presidency on the right to life, particularly of the unborn,” the former Watergate reporter said. “And every day he has sacrificed the lives of thousands of Americans because he is unwilling to deal honestly, forthrightly, meaningfully with the greatest domestic crisis in our postwar history in this country.”
Trump is committing “the most grievous felony committed by any president in our history, probably," he added.
