As the pressure continues to mount on Donald Trump over a wide range of issues, many people have questioned the president's state of mind. With the Russian scandal growing by the day, reports suggest that Trump is not handling the backlash as well as some might have hoped.

MSNBC on Trump

Donald Trump changed the game back in the summer of 2015 when he caused a media frenzy on the floor of Trump Tower in New York City. As the press gathered around and with his family by his side, the former host of "The Apprentice" announced that he was running for president, and would do so as a Republican.

The initial reaction was curiosity at best, and laughter at the worst, with many believing that the campaign was nothing more than a publicity stunt to drive in higher rantings for his reality show. As time went on, however, Trump gained steam and was able to become victorious in the GOP primary as well as the general election over Hillary Clinton. Despite this, the stress of being the commander in chief has reportedly gotten to Trump, with various reports confirming that he spends most of his days glued to cable news in an apparent obsession over how the media is covering in. Trump's lack of sleep has also worried those close to him, which was highlighted during a June 9 segment on MSNBC's "Morning Joe."

Joining MSNBC hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski on Friday morning was Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

The hosts and the congresswoman came into agreement while discussing Donald Trump and his mental health. "What I have advised him to do, go to sleep," Pelosi pointed out. "Get some sleep. Bring yourself to a place where the synapses are working," she continued.

After Mika Brzezinski spoke out in agreement with Nancy Pelosi's assessment, Joe Scarborough doubled down as well.

"His own people say he doesn’t sleep," Scarborough said. "He wanders around the White House," he continued, explaining, "His family’s not there right now...He's obsessed with the news. He sits and watches TV six hours a day." Not stopping there, Scarborough went on to say that the billionaire real estate mogul was "not in a good place." In response, Pelosi agreed, replying, "We are not in disagreement with that."

Moving forward

While some have questioned whether or not Donald Trump is crumbling from the pressure, his team is painting a picture of a leader who is in control.

The latest controversy that has pushed back at the White House has involved former FBI Director James Comey who gave a scathing testimony in Congress on Thursday, accusing the president of lying and defaming his name after his recent firing from the bureau.
