‘Something is just not right’: Reporter expresses deep concern about Trump's reflections on Jan. 6
Former president Donald Trump shows "no remorse" for the Capitol insurrection, according to ABC News reporter Jonathan Karl.
Appearing on MSNBC on Thursday night to discuss his new book, "Betrayal," Karl talked about his interview with Trump in March at the former president's Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.
"I was looking for something," Karl said. "I wanted to see any hint of regret, any hint of remorse for what happened on Jan. 6. ... Absolutely none."
Karl added that Trump was in "a good mood" — and got "excited" when talking about the "terrible things" that fellow Republicans had done to him, including former Vice President Mike Pence and former Attorney General Bill Barr.
Host Joy Reid later asked Karl whether Trump came across "as somebody who is rational (or) mentally all there."
"It's a very strange thing," Karl responded. "He comes out — he's gregarious. He's got a way of trying to charm you. He doesn't seem like he's somebody who's completely insane at all. He conducts himself, he conducts his business. But it's the lack of any sense of remorse, I think, that really comes across as, there's something that's just not right."
