CNN’s Harwood on Trump’s Presser: ‘Somebody in Deep Psychological Distress’

‘It was dark because he’s made clear that his mind is dark’


HARWOOD: "Look, this is a very disturbing tableau for the country. It was dark because he's made clear that his mind is dark. This is someone in deep psychological distress right now, self-pitying, insecure, angry. He said almost plaintively at the end, when he was reading a text from Strzok to Page, he said, 'I’m not a bad person.' He was sort of imploring people to accept that view of him. When Kaitlan and Alexi said he thinks, 'I did nothing wrong,' that sentence stops with the word 'I.' Because with Donald Trump, if he did it, it's not wrong. He doesn’t recognize abstract concepts like right and wrong, like morality or immorality, like true or false.“
