Carl Bernstein: We Have Never Before Had A President Who Acts More Like A "Common Grifter"

|

Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein lamented on CNN Tuesday morning that the President of the United States acts more like a "common grifter" and a "con man" than anything else.

"I looked up the definition of grifter the other day in the dictionary, and it seems to suit Donald Trump perfectly in terms of the way he has conducted himself all his life, but including, astonishingly enough, in his presidency," Bernstein said.

CARL BERNSTEIN: We’ve never seen a President of the United States who actually acts more in some ways like a common grifter. I looked up the definition of grifter the other day in the dictionary, and it seems to suit Donald Trump perfectly in terms of the way he has conducted himself all his life, but including, astonishingly enough, in his presidency.

The idea of being a grifter while at the same time being President of the United States, a flim-flam artist, a con man, someone who lies, somebody who uses instruments at his command to obtain and do things that are untoward and underhanded.
