Trump, in fact, called Starr “a lunatic” and “terrible” in a newly resurfaced interview from 1999 that CNN’s “Newsroom” aired on Friday.
“I think Ken Starr is a lunatic,” Trump told the “Today” show in the old footage.
“I really think that Ken Starr is a disaster,” the then-businessman added. “I hated the way the president handled it. It was a long and terrible process. I really think that Ken Starr was terrible.”
On MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” The New York Times Chief White House correspondent Peter Baker noted how “everybody used to be on different sides.”
“Remember, President Trump used to be a Democrat before he was a Republican, and then he was Reform Party,” he explained. “So, everybody has kind of flipped sides.”
