MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski expressed concern Wednesday over Donald Trump getting a clean cognitive bill of health, saying "the word evil comes to mind" to explain the president's behavior.
White House doctor Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson addressed the media on Tuesday about Trump's health, which he declared to be "excellent," and he also said he aced a cognitive test given at the president's request.
In the wake of the controversy over Trump's reported slur on African countries as "s—hole" nations, Brzezinski said she was worried.
"If he wasn't healthy, that would be a great excuse for this behavior. Now he has none, which you can then deduce other things that are far more nefarious and frightening," Brzezinski said.
Former Obama administration official Steve Rattner said he had a similar thought in that he wasn't sure if it would be better if Trump had mental issues.
"I'm disturbed that they say he's cognitively healthy," Brzezinski said. "I think the word evil comes to mind."
