Is Donald Trump off his rocker?

To put it in other words: Is Trump bat crap crazy?

According to this recent news article, Trump is mentally ill: http://www.dailybreeze.com/opinion/20170916/diagnosing-trump-an-unhinged-case-study

Begin quote from news article:

Only seven months into his puzzling presidency, Donald Trump has accomplished an odd achievement: He’s made Sigmund Freud relevant again. Although the father of psychoanalysis is no longer fashionable, the Freudian concept of psychological projection is alive and well.

“I think he’s crazy,” said Sen. Jack Reed, a Rhode Island Democrat, speaking into an open microphone about Trump. J. Brien Comey, father of fired FBI director Jim Comey, thinks Trump belongs “in an institution.” Conservative columnist Jennifer Rubin has questioned the president’s “mental stability.”

These aren’t isolated examples. Many prominent liberals, conservatives, moderates, and libertarians have concluded that the president is off his rocker. The tangible evidence for that proposition is thin, and Trump seems to be enjoying himself more and more. Maybe we’re all just projecting.

“Trump Derangement Syndrome” is the phrase used by those sympathetic to the president to explain liberals’ hair-on-fire response to anything Trump says or does. TDS is also an occupational hazard of being a member of the Republican establishment or a movement conservative who cares about such trite concepts as political principles.

This became clear again last week in the hysteria over Trump’s approach to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. In response to the administration’s original announcement rescinding DACA, liberals came unglued. Not content to call the decision dumb and racist, which they did, they played the sanity card. “It is lunacy,” opined Minnesota’s Democratic governor, Mark Dayton. The president, added HBO comedic pundit John Oliver, is out of his mind. “Utter insanity,” proclaimed Susan Hay, a co-ounder of a Florida-based pro-immigrant and refugee nonprofit.

That was then. A few days later, after dining on Chinese food (you can’t make this stuff up) at the White House with Democratic congressional leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, Trump reversed field on DACA. In the real world, such a development is called processing new information. In modern U.S. politics, it’s considered treason — or insanity. This time, it was conservatives who melted down. Ann Coulter pronounced it the death of the GOP brand; Iowa Republican Rep. Steve King, an immigration hardliner, claimed it would “crack” Trump’s core base of support; various commenters on conservative news sites theorized that Trump had been taken over by aliens. Not the illegal kind, the kind from outer space.

Since before Trump’s inauguration, Democratic attorneys in the nation’s capital have contemplated replacing Trump under the 25th Amendment’s requirement that the president is able to “discharge the powers and duties of his office,” i.e., impeaching him on grounds he’s intellectually incapacitated.

End quote

Trump has many supporters who love him. They don’t think that he is insane.

  1. Donald Trump won the election by tapping into a large vein of disgruntled, exploited voters, who had effectively dropped out of the political system, because they no longer believed the campaign promises of establishment politicians who cynically ignored those promises after being elected, in favour of continuing with the long standing agenda of the rich and powerful.

    Whether Trump was sincere or not in draining the ‘establishment’ swamp, he has gradually been compromised, by overwhelming media and other pressures, into falling into line with the establishments agenda.

  2. i think it can be fairly said that he is an odd one. He got elected for three reasons, he was a celebrity, he has enormous wealth to fund a campaign and he wasnt Hillary Clinton.
    His achievements in office are few and the course which he wants to steer the US is very unclear. i suppose you could say he is the ” Troll in chief “

    • he wasnt Hillary Clinton — more this than the others — His achievements in office are few — he hasn’t been in office that long, and the Establishment absolutely hates him, eg the District of Columbia voted approx 95% for HRC — the course which he wants to steer the US — I think a great many who voted for him (or against HRC, however you want to see it) actually want a lot less ‘steering’ from Wash DC.

      • Change the subject. A gal shows up at a church in friendswood ( it’s north of Houston ). She was going to help out with the flood relief effort at the church. She was turned away. She said it’s because she’s a Jew lesbian (I don’t know how the church found. Go to KPRC’s website). Friendswood is a liberal area. Here being a lez ain’t gonna bother them. So that only leaves one other thing about her,that they probably turned her away for.

  3. Donald Trump is a businessman, not a career politician who made himself rich feathering his nest with taxes, campaign contributions, gifts and kickbacks. He’s been pretty much of a disappointment to people who believed he would keep his campaign promises.

  4. Another article written by a douchebag,piece of shit liberal. So Sen. Reed is a shrink now. Well holy shit. He’s in the wrong line of work. Want to take this route? Fine. Hillary needs to be put on antipsychotic drugs. She’s bipolar. Free Latuda for her. No matter what Trump does,it’s gonna be wrong. Least he showed up in here in Texas after the hurricane. Oh yeah. Barry showed up after Sandy hit Jersey. Photo Opp. Right before election time . Hurricane hit Louisiana in 2016. Where was he at? My bad. Forgot. His two terms were up. He stood to gain nothing. Golfing at the Vineyard with his lardass wife . Barry was just as f–led up. Chronic liar and he hung around homegrown terrorists. Name Bill Ayers ring a bell?
