Both Sides!

POPPY HARLOW (CO-HOST): How can they not coalesce in a moment like this? How do you explain it?

DAVID GREGORY (CNN POLITICAL ANALYST): I don’t have an explanation. I think it’s another embarrassment for the Republican Party. Mike McFaul, who is a very serious lawmaker from Texas from the Homeland Security Committee said the world is burning. The world is on fire. And we can’t seem to come to an agreement on a leader. It’s a real problem. I mean at the end of the week here with all this chaos among Republicans but much graver circumstances around the world. I actually have my eye on Democrats. How long are Democrats going to stand by in the world of identity politics, and zero-sum politics, and not be part of any solution? We’ll see. I think there’s more cards to be played before Democrats jump in. But I think people who don’t follow this day in and day out like we do, they’re looking up and they’re wondering whether Washington has the ability to do their job, to pass bills, pass legislation, make sure the government is funded, let alone play a role on the world stage which is what America is still expected to do.
