Erin Burnett Hits Trump For Tumultuous Management Style: Could Say It’s ‘Emotional Abuse’

Erin Burnett and her guests talked about President Donald Trump‘s management style in a way that he probably will not appreciate on Out Front Wednesday.

“I think there’s increasing trepidation among senior Republicans and really Republicans at all levels about joining this White House,” Politico Senior Political Reporter Eliana Johnson said. “Because the loyalty that’s been given to the president really hasn’t been returned. And I think Jeff Sessions is really case in point of that. He was the first Republican senator to back the president and he’s been ritually humiliated over and over again.”

“This is a man who clearly thrives on creating insecurity in others,” Burnett said. “It’s how he’s operated in business. It’s how he talks to one person when another isn’t in the room. This is the way he is. This is something that people who have covered him and followed him have known for a long time. I mean, I’ve seen it myself.

CNN senior politcal analyst Mark Preston said that he spoke to former Trump staffer and dude who went on a media rampage Sam Nunberg about his wacky interview with Burnett last Monday, and said that Nunberg admitted he didn’t think Trump treated him well.

“But he said you know what? I wasn’t a good enough employee,” Preston said. “Basically, what I learned from just talking to him and from others now is that there is an amazing amount of guilt that Trump puts upon you, even if you are right, you are wrong. And that’s a bad way to go through life.

“Some would say, I’m not a psychologist, but I think you go in the emotional abuse…angle here possibly,” Burnett said.
