NewsOne Now host Roland Martin called President Donald Trump a “crackhead” during an appearance on MSNBC and even the leftist hosts were appalled.
Speaking about Trump’s speech at a Boy Scouts event Monday, Martin ranted, “Here’s the deal, large rallies for Donald Trump – that’s his crack. He is addicted to it. He is a crackhead when it comes to large crowds.”
“Hold on. Roland – Roland, hold on a second. Hold on – we’re talking about being respectful. This is the president – ”host Stephanie Ruhle intervened.
“No, no, no, follow me here….follow me, Stephanie – ” Martin tried to defend himself, but Ruhle wasn’t having it.
“Hold on a second, no. This is the President of the United States. If you want to say he’s an adrenaline addict, if you want to say this fires him up, fine. You’re not going to say it’s his crack,” she said.

Adjusting his language slightly, Martin ranted: “That’s his fix….When he gets in front of a large crowd, he loses it.” The left-wing commentator proclaimed: “He’s gonna keep doing this, and you sat there and listened to it, and it was horrible….I’m sorry, that was despicable and I would like to respect the President, but can he please respect the office?”
After first lecturing Martin, Ruhle then joined in the harsh criticism: “I’ll tell you, my mother, who voted for President Trump, she herself was disgusted by last night’s speech.” She then noted that the President would be “giving another rally tonight to a huge crowd in Ohio.” Co-anchor Ali Velshi remarked: “He’s going to get a fix tonight.” Ruhle agreed: “He’s certainly going to get a fix.”
