Conservative commentator and radio host Charlie Sykes was clearly unnerved as he blasted President Donald Trump’s administration on Sunday, claiming that the president need “adult supervision” since he can’t even let go of the fact that he couldn’t win the popular vote.
During an interview with MSNBC host Alex Witt, Sykes criticized the Trump administration for having their top advisor Stephan Miller represent them on four different Sunday talk shows, describing his interviews as combative and “cringe-worthy.”
“I want to know who will play him on SNL next week,” Sykes said. “What an extraordinary choice by the Trump administration to push Stephen Miller out when they actually do have some credible spokesmen. This was a cringe-worthy performance.”
“Stephen Miller has only one audience,” Sykes continued. “He’s playing to Donald Trump. This is somebody proving that he is the loyalist possible spokesman. But what you have there [in Miller] is you have the intersection of inexperience, incompetence and zealotry, and the fact that he is doubling down on something that is clearly just not true.”
Sykes also blamed Trump for all the petty squabbles his administration seems to keep getting into.
“They are undermining their own agenda, they have self-inflicted wounds,” Sykes complained. “They distract from it and the only explanation I can come up with is that Donald Trump is obsessed with the fact that he didn’t win the popular vote.”
“There needs to be some sort of adult supervision to say, ‘Move on, Mr. President, you’re the president of the United States and why are you re-litigating this by telling a demonstrable lie over and over and over again and demanding that your staffers basically, you know, throw their credibility into the bonfire, as well?’”
