All the Trump news, mental instability edition


Ha ha, turns out Trump is an incompetent retard who didn't even want to be president, you Republicans are idiots:


BBC - Trump seen as a child by staff. Quote:
Mr Wolff has hit back against White House attacks, saying the president has no credibility and that "100% of the people around him" question his fitness for office.

He added that White House staff described the president as childlike because "he has the need for immediate gratification. It's all about him... This man does not read, does not listen. He's like a pinball just shooting off the sides".
To be fair, the Republican party's god nowadays is a B-movie actor who was senile while in office.


CNN - book hits Trump where it hurts most: his ego. Quote:
But as Washington consumes a sensational West Wing exposé by journalist Michael Wolff, Trump is being forced to watch as his prized image is ripped to shreds.

When a presidency is anchored so fundamentally on an image, as it is with Trump, rather than a long history of political achievement or ideological consistency, any deterioration of that image can be especially perilous. For Trump, who may be more conscious of how he is perceived than any politician in history, the mockery is likely to be especially painful.
To be fair, most of the Republican insiders got heir start in politics working for a short balding sweaty man who was so paranoid that he recorded his own illegal schemes on audio tape.


BBC - everyone's talking about Trump's mental illness. Quote:
In his book, Fire and Fury, journalist Michael Wolff writes that President Donald Trump is showing worsening signs of mental decline.

"Everybody was painfully aware of the increasing pace of his repetitions," he writes in Hollywood Reporter.
To be fair, um... shit I already brought up Reagan. OK, the Republican party's ideological leader is a son of a goldbug who worships a Russian immigrant sci-fi author who hated socialism while spending her entire old age collecting welfare.


Vox - even psychiatrists are saying Trump should be evaluated by force. Quote:
Yet there is a growing call from a group of psychiatrists — the best medical experts at interpreting aberrant human behavior — for exactly this: an emergency evaluation of the president’s mental capacity, by force if necessary.

Leading this call is Bandy Lee, an assistant professor in forensic psychiatry (the interface of law and mental health) at the Yale School of Medicine who has devoted her 20-year career to studying, predicting, and preventing violence.

She recently briefed a dozen members of Congress — both Democrats and Republicans — on the president’s mental state. And this week, she, along with Judith Herman at Harvard and Robert Jay Lifton at Columbia, released a statement arguing that Trump is “further unraveling.” In October, a collection of essays from 27 mental health professionals that Lee edited, The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump, was published.
Come on! Everyone in the Republican party is a narcissistic psychopath with delusions of conspiracies. You'll have to do better than that!


The Guardian - Donald Trump eats McDonald's for fear of being poisoned? Quote:
Trump’s answer to the poisoning threat is to eat McDonald’s, by preference, all the time; the burger chain never knows he’s coming, and it’s all pre-made. This has the distinct ring of post-hoc justification – it would be much more reliable to get a nine-year-old to sit next to him and pre-taste his food. Besides which, even if the staff of McDonald’s don’t in general know who’s coming, it would be unusual for them to feed the president without a heads-up. Much more likely, Trump fears poison and he really likes McDonald’s.

This, too, was an open secret from the time of his trip to the Middle East, when his trailer requests read like the death row meals in a dystopian movie about 100 people all getting electrocuted on the same day.
OK... she wins.
