Steven Rattner, a former Obama Treasury official, said that a top economic adviser to President Trump, Peter Navarro, is “on the spectrum,” in an MSNBC appearance on Wednesday.

Rattner expressed dismay at Gary Cohn’s resignation and fear at the prospect of Navarro becoming the next chief economic adviser in the White House. Cohn “represented mainstream Republican thought,” he said.

“Peter Navarro is a fruitcake,” he add. “He’s on the spectrum, way out on the spectrum. All you had to do was watch him on Fox News Sunday, and you would know that.”

MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle called Navarro a “whack-a-doo.”

Navarro was instrumental in helping the president craft his recent steel and aluminum tarrifs.
