The criticisms of Donald Trump keep piling up after his dangerous and despicable call for Russia to hack and reveal the secretary of State's emails.

This time it was famed reporter Carl Bernstein, who has also been a critic of Hillary Clinton, who weighed in on the topic. He told CNN's Newsroom that his latest remarks have disqualified him for the presidency.

"Today, we have reached a tipping point in this election,” Bernstein said Wednesday on CNN. "This is a disqualifying event for a president of the United States.”

"It ought to be apparent to all, and the Democrats should be able to make the case, that he is manifestly unsuited to be the president of the United States because of his recklessness with the national security, and just even thinking about the idea of endorsing the notion that he Russians should go ahead and hack into our national security apparatus..."

Almost every day the "mangled apricot hell beast" does or says something that should rule him out of getting near the White House, let alone become the next president of the United States of America.
