The best scoop from Jon Karl’s "Front Row at the Trump Show," which is out today:

Former acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney told his staff to read the book A First-Rate Madness: Uncovering the Links Between Leadership and Mental Illness, which argues that in “times of crisis, we are better off being led by mentally ill leaders than by mentally normal ones.”

Mulvaney apparently believed that Trump was mentally ill and that it might actually be a good thing.

from the comments:

- "In times of crisis, we are better off being led by mentally ill leaders than by mentally normal ones.” What crisis were we in when we elected Trump?

- The crisis was that the Democrats had elected a black man and were threatening to elect a woman.
