“It’s just like hugging a suicide bomber. He blows you up in the process with him,” Elise Jordan said during a panel discussion on Thursday.
MSNBC political analyst Elise Jordan compared President Trump to a suicide bomber on Thursday during a panel discussion on MSNBC about the potential existence of recordings of Trump’s conversations with former FBI Director James Comey.
MSNBC’s Craig Melvin asked Jordan about Trump’s recent tweets, in which Trump claimed that he had “no idea whether there are “tapes” or recordings of my conversations with James Comey, but I did not make, and do not have, any such recordings.”
“No, he’s just wasting — he wasted the country’s collective time speculating over whether these tapes existed or not. It’s a sad day when you cannot depend on the president’s word,” Jordan told Melvin.
Jordan continued, “my advice would be to Republicans who do cozy up to him. It’s just like hugging a suicide bomber. He blows you up in the process with him.”
Melvin pointed out to Jordan that her comparison of Trump to a suicide bomber is a little strong.
“This is not — look at what — if you go out on the limb — if you’re a Republican who went out on a limb and defended Donald Trump over saying well he’s got tapes that will back up his point of view, you just got blown up, too,” Jordan responded.
