Jane Harman: Trump Is ‘Disgraceful’

‘I think Trump is getting exactly what he wants because you’re leading with this story on this show instead of leading with Iran, which is a really big story of the week’

WALLACE: “Let me pick up on that with you, Congresswoman Harman, because you have been around politics for a while. What do you make of the fact that up until this point, that Trump had made a lot of comments that a lot of people were offended by especially about illegal immigrants being rapists and drug dealers. That didn't sink him but rocketed him to the top. In the latest Fox News poll, he was number one.”
HARMAN: “Well, I agree that people are fed up with Washington and fed up with politics as usual. But I think Trump is getting exactly what he wants because you're leading with this story on this show instead of leading with Iran, which is a really big story of the week. He's disgraceful. But I do want to make a comment about John McCain, who we've had our small disagreements from time to time. We basically do agree. I've been all over the world with him. And he uses his moral authority in very impressive ways. There is no one else like John McCain. He can talk about torture like no one else can. He can talk about why sequestration, this brain dead idea, is killing our defense budget and new ways to fund defense. So, I would say I hope this elevates John McCain's stature. And I hope he doesn't comment at all about this disgraceful act.”
WALLACE: "Well, it is interesting, we've asked and everyone has asked him to make a comment and he has, up to this point, declined. And I guess that's the Republican line -- when your opponent or enemy is digging a hole, stay out of the way."
