Mulvaney Can’t Believe Rioters Took Trump Literally

USA Today reports:

Former White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney told NBC News’ “Meet the Press” TV show Sunday that he doesn’t currently know “what’s going on inside the Oval Office now” and “inside the president’s head” following riots this week in Washington, D.C.

Mulvaney announced his resignation Thursday as President Donald Trump’s special envoy to Northern Ireland after pro-Trump rioters stormed the U.S. Capitol building on Wednesday. Mulvaney was Trump’s former acting chief of staff.

Mulvaney said Sunday that “people took (Trump) literally” when he encouraged his supporters to “stop the steal” and to go to the U.S. Capitol building to express their dissatisfaction. “I never thought I’d see that,” Mulvaney said.
