Mayor de Blasio hopes President Trump is “sane,” even if he doesn’t think he’s acting that way.
“I hope he is sane,” Hizzoner said when asked about Trump’s physical exam on MSNBC’s Morning Joe. “His actions don’t suggest it.”
The question from Mika Brzezinski — who Trump has called “low I.Q. Crazy Mika” — came a day after the White House released the results of Trump’s first official physical exam, in which he was found to be in sound physical and mental condition.
Despite his concerns, de Blasio noted he was no Freud.
“I don’t know, I’m not a psychiatrist — I don’t know where to separate a clinical issue from a judgment issue or an ego issue,” he said. “I do know that he’s divisive in a way we have no previous model for, and it is increasingly repellant to the American people.”
But de Blasio argued that what was causing the divisiveness was less important.
“Let’s put aside whether there is a clinical problem or not,” he said. “There is a leadership problem, a judgement problem, an ego problem. And it is inconsistent with American values.”
A day after Trump’s doctor said the President stood 6’3” and weighed 239 pounds, de Blasio, known to hit the gym in Park Slope nearly every day, was also quizzed on his own vitals — and said he is just under 6’6” and weighs 210 pounds.
