Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

Longtime Trump-Hater Krauthammer Says Trump’s Epic Presser Was Actually “Hinged”

In an appearance on Fox News Friday, Krauthammer said that he found the president’s lively, sometimes-heated news conference on Thursday entirely “hinged,” adding that it was “performance art” and that “you have to judge him by his own terms.”

Krauthammer was referring to Tapper’s remarks on Trump’s news conference, in which the president attacked the media for some of its coverage. The CNN reporter called the president “unhinged” and said he should stop whining.

“I found him ‘hinged,’” Krauthammer joked, adding that “it was a stream of consciousness.”

“You think of the JFK press conferences or Reagan or others,” he continued. “This is a performance art. I suppose I’m willing to be schooled on this, that you have to judge him by his own terms. If you try to connect the dots or the sentences or the fragments, it doesn’t always hold together.”

Krauthammer also joked about Trump dropping his own name from the podium.

“I must say, of course, the high point was when he mentioned to me,” Krauthammer said. “I thought I was going to be the surprise new national security adviser, so I was somewhat disappointed.”

“The country is really divided, he’s not the one who caused it, but his supporters will love this and those who are skeptical about him are going to wonder about how hinged he is,” Krauthammer concluded.

And let’s point out, Krauthammer isn’t exactly an unqualified Trump fan. While he’s softened on the president over the months, back in August he wrote in The Washington Post, “I used to think Trump was an 11-year-old, an undeveloped schoolyard bully. I was off by about 10 years. His needs are more primitive, an infantile hunger for approval and praise, a craving that can never be satisfied. He lives in a cocoon of solipsism where the world outside himself has value — indeed exists — only insofar as it sustains and inflates him.”
