As each month continues on in the Donald Trump administration, critics wonder if the president's reckless and unorthodox behavior is a sign of deteriorating mental health. Following the release of Michael Wolff's new book that expanded on this speculation, a host on MSNBC decided to throw a little shade at the White House and Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

MSNBC on Trump

From the early days of his campaign for president, Donald Trump stood out from the other candidates running due to his controversial style. The former host of "The Apprentice" was not a conventional politician as he shot off with his mouth, insulting anyone he felt needed it, while proposing policies that weren't rooted in facts, and at times, common sense.

Since his upset election win over Hillary Clinton, Trump's quick temper and over-sensitivity has caused him to lash out on a daily basis in response to anyone who dares criticize him. From the mainstream media, to professional athletes, to Democrats, and even select Republicans, Trump's reaction to their criticism has raised many red flags. In addition, several reports claim that those close to the president have made similar allegations in private, which was brought to light during the recent release of "Fire And Fury: Inside the Trump White House" by author Michael Wolff. As expected, the White House claims the book is "made up lies" and "fiction," though it quickly became a best seller. These issues and more were discussed during a January 5 segment on MSNBC.

During the Friday edition of MSNBC's "Deadline: White House," host Nicolle Wallace was joined by Kimberly Atkins of the Boston Globe to discuss Donald Trump's mental health.

"What is now public. What has not been pushed back on that I have seen anywhere other than the press secretary's podium, not always sanctum of truth, is that there are questions about his mental fitness," Wallace said, while taking a shot at Sarah Huckabee Sanders in the process.

Kimberly Atkins warned that Democrats shouldn't be too quick to examine Donald Trump's mental health due to running the risk of setting a precedent for Republicans to do the same in the future when a Democrats is in office.

"If it is true that people in the White House have concerns about his mental fitness as a public servant, it is incumbent upon them to consider that and take some action," Atkins said, before cautioning those not to act too quick.

As the backlash to "Fire and Fury" continues, Donald Trump is now in his second year as commander in chief, with an approval rating that is hovering around just 35 percent. As the pressure mounts and the investigation into Russian election interference heats up, only time will tell if the president is revealed to have mental health problems, or if it's all just part of his personality.
