Anyone who has followed Donald Trump through much of his miserable 71 years on this earth is fully aware that he has a pattern which confirms a very fragile and weak temperament, and the inability to think clearly and intelligently.
All criticism of Trump is met with a three-pronged response; ‘attack, pivot, and then declare himself the victor.’
Trump fails to speak clearly, and his remarks are often incoherent and childish. After his first month in office, I assumed senility had set in. But looking into his past proved me wrong. White House sources claim that he remains unable to focus for lengthy periods of time; he watches hours of fake news, believing everything he sees and hears.
Case in point. Trump tweeted early this morning after it was announced that Robert Mueller was investigating Trump for “obstruction of justice.” He is also following a ‘money trail’ relating to his connections with Russia.
“They made up a phony collusion with the Russians story, found zero proof, so now they go for obstruction of justice on the phony story. Nice,”Trump tweeted at 6:55 a.m. ET. He quickly followed that tweet with this one: “You are witnessing the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history – led by some very bad and conflicted people! #MAGA”
If you have forgotten, during the campaign season Trump claimed that if Hillary were to be elected, the scandals and investigations would be endless. He stated that she would eventually be jailed. Sounds familiar; he was just talking about the wrong person.
You might also remember that he told his supporters they ‘would get so tired of winning, they would say, please stop.’ Trump is proving to be the biggest loser in American political history. In addition, Trump has proven that not only is he unable to govern, his entire party is incompetent.
I have believed for a very long time that Trump is mentally ill and therefore medically unfit to lead our nation. Many Americans have voiced concerns about his physical health. He is 71-years-old, never exercises, is now approximately 80 pounds overweight, making him obese, and is a junk food addict. I have been more concerned about his weak ego, and quick temper when he is criticized. He is a classic example of someone suffering from paranoid schizophrenia.
I sincerely believe that Trump’s ego will not allow him to accept the seriousness of being investigated by a special counsel or special prosecutor. Mr. Mueller has nearly unlimited power to subpoena anyone he chooses, and demand all documents pertaining to his investigation. You may remember that the White House refused to give congress information pertaining to Michael Flynn; this is different in a way Trump is unable to comprehend.
Think about what the movie should be titled. Nixon’s story was called “All the President’s Men.”
Please re-post; thank you.
