A former adviser to three Republican presidents called the speech Donald Trump gave before a crowd of supporters Saturday in Pennsylvania the “most divisive” he has ever heard from a president.

David Gergen, a CNN political analyst who advised Presidents Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford and Ronald Reagan — and President Bill Clinton — said he found the speech “deeply disturbing” with little change from Trump’s bombastic, divisive campaign messages.

Trump slammed the press — again — as “fake news,” vowed to topple Obamacare and promised to build the border wall between Mexico and the U.S. “Don’t worry, we’re going to have the wall,” Trump said at the rally marking his 100th day as president. “Rest assured. Go home, go to sleep.”

Gergen said on a CNN panel following Trump’s speech that bringing “your campaign speech into the presidency is something presidents rarely do.” He added: “I think this is the most divisive speech I’ve ever heard from a sitting American president.”

He “played to his base,” Gergen added. “He treated his other listeners — the rest of the people who have been disturbed about him or oppose him — he treated them basically as, ‘I don’t care, I don’t give a damn what you think because you’re, frankly, the enemy.”

Gergen added: “I thought it was a deeply disturbing speech.”

David Gergen is a senile old fool being paid by CNN to say what they want him to say.
I wasn't aware that having the same promises AFTER being elected as were made during the campaign was a crime. 
The news IS extremely biased and "fake".  Obamacare IS a disaster (even Bill Clinton admitted that).  And, a wall IS needed to curtail the unrestrained influx of drugs and criminals across the border.

Fredrick, as usual, just repeats the standard alt-right sound bytes over and over and over....
Showing he is incapable of thinking for himself.

If ObamaCare was such a disaster it would have been repealed already.  Trump promised that everyone would have great healthcare and the government would pay for it.  In fact, the GOP likes ObamaCare and their plans so much that they decided to keep them as they exempted themselves from their latest bill.
