Chris Matthews explains why fired acting attorney general Sally Yates makes President Trump "look bad," and whether it is "driving Trump up the wall... that he is losing to a girl."
CHRIS MATTHEWS: Donald Trump found himself facing off against a prosecutor who should scare the daylights out of him. I’m talking about Sally Yates, the former acting Attorney General, who dared to blow the whistle twice in his face.
First, she informed Trump’s White House lawyer that the national security adviser might be up to his neck with the Russians. The second strike was calling out his notorious Muslim ban as a violation of the First Amendment, which bans the government of recognizing an official religion.
And both those charges by Yates against Trump make him look bad and make her look very good. It could be the last part, making Sally Yates look good, that’s driving the man in the White House up a wall. Remember how, as Senator Elizabeth Warren once wonderfully put it, he can’t stand the fact that he’s losing to a girl.
