Let’s go over the past week:
- Donald Trump announces, via Twitter, that transgender military service members will no longer be welcomed in the armed forces in any capacity. The Pentagon hasn’t a clue what he’s talking about.
- In a speech at the annual Boy Scout Jamboree Donald Trump regales teenage Boy Scouts and their parents with a bizarre, self-aggrandizing speech that’s mostly about politics and nothing about being a Boy Scout. The head of the Boy Scouts of America is so embarrassed he publicly apologizes for Trump’s speech.
- Donald Trump continues to publicly humiliate and berate one of his most loyal supporters, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, despite widespread criticism.
Does this seem normal to you? This seems to me beyond what most people would consider sensible, reasonable behavior. I always figured Trump to be a spoiled, narcissistic, moronic asshole, but it’s time I seriously consider the possibility that Donald Trump is fuckin’ nuts.
This notion has been posited before. As we get deeper into the his presidency Trump’s mental instability is becoming more and more apparent. And I think this also plays into the Trump-Russia scenario; a man with mental hang-ups like Trump is easier to exploit.
Even if the Russia thing turns out to be a dead-end (yeah, right) I think at least we will be exposed further to Trump’s mental incapacity. Trump is beyond merely politically inexperienced. He’s beyond mere incompetence. I think he has a severe mental problem. He may have been able to get by with it in the business and entertainment world, but as the leader of the free world? Does anybody of any political stripe think Trump’s behavior makes sense?
