On MSNBC this afternoon, anchor Thomas Roberts speculated about the possibility that President Trump is trying to incite terrorist attacks in the U.S. for his own political gain:
THOMAS ROBERTS, MSNBC: We don't know more about the three suspects, Howard, but we do know that the president found that inappropriate of the mayor and went after him saying, 'At least seven dead and 48 wounded, and the mayor of London says there's no reason to be alarmed, and he also said we have to quit being politically correct, get down to the business of security for our people, if we don't get smart it is only going to get worse.'
I asked this of Mayor Reid, but seems like the president is trying to provoke something that he can politicize more for his own gain in america. Do you feel that way?
Former DNC chair Howard Dean didn't quite know how to respond: "Uh, I just think he's -- well, I think he's totally incompetent."
Earlier in the day, Roberts asked the same question to Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed: "So let’s not be PC about this. Is the president trying to provoke a domestic terrorist attack with this Twitter rant only to prove himself right?"
