MEACHAM: "I think that usually it takes some time to understand what is going on in a given presidency. I think that it’s pretty clear in real time what’s happening here. The President for a variety of political motives has decided that he will have this morally ambiguous relationship with the alt-right. We were joking in my household most of last night, can you imagine a world where the 'New York Times' runs a headline that a president bowing to pressure denounces racism. You don’t need pressure for that. And the FDR once said that the presidency is preeminently a place of moral leadership. And I think that as more people in the country begin to feel the vacuum there, I think that the President’s already cratering approval rating will continue to go down."
