From the March 9 edition of MSNBC's "The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell":

LAWRENCE O'DONNELL: Do you think the market reaction is a reaction to the markets realizing the president simply does not tell them or the world or this country the truth about this situation? And a market needs clear information.

But I think there's no confidence in the president and anything he says or does. He turns everything into what he thinks is a political benefit for himself, but he's actually imploding in the process. But there's a lot of innocent bystanders that are being badly hurt.
I just think — I mean, I wish he would just be quiet. I really mean it, I'm not — that's an awful thing to say about a president — wish he'd be quiet.
Just let the experts speak and acknowledge whatever they suggest to him is what we should be doing.

There are others who will pretend that their calls to storming the Capitol and spilling a swimming pool of patriotic blood were purely metaphorical. Right, Rep. Mo Brooks?

And then there's Steve Bannon.
