 “He’s deteriorating in plain sight,” one Republican strategist who is in frequent contact with the White House told Business Insider. Asked why the president was obsessed with Alabama instead of the states that would actually be affected by the storm, the strategist said, “You should ask a psychiatrist about that; I’m not sure I’m qualified to comment.” It’s said that speculating on Trump’s mental health is inappropriate and unwise, especially for those who are not formally trained in the field of psychiatry or psychology. But if smoke is coming out from under the hood of your car, if you notice puddles of oil under it, if the engine is overheating and you smell burning oil, you don’t have to be a car mechanic to know that something is wrong with your car. Accepting the reality about Trump’s disordered personality is important and even essential.

A) Trump was NOT elected. He did not receive a majority of the popular vote nor anywhere near it, but was installed by the Electoral College, a shadowy group of people with their own agenda who DO NOT represent the majority.

B) If common sense were 'common' no one would need psychiatry to tell them that Trump is a flaming psychopath. His behavior reinforces this time and again. The hell with semantics, e.g. myriad clinical analysis and terminology attempting to correctly pigeon-hole an obviously massive decomposing brain.

C) We are a sick society. No one living in a mentally healthy state would have allowed this SOB to occupy the White House this long without invoking the 25th Amendment and taking this maniac out.

As a teacher for five decades, and a playwright for whom dialogue and behavior define all human beings, I knew who Trump was ,decades ago, here in NYC>


The power-elite (Gary Brumback's term for those who manipulate our society) -- needed a stressed, frightened electorate, to become their serfs.


They put this incompetent, stupid child into the executive office,, stacked the Supreme Court, and. purchased the legislative branch.


Our roads and transportation networks are unattended and decaying. Our health-care has been made into a 'market' and we know who owns the markets.When the Trump administration was pitching its massive tax cuts for corporations and the rich, officials promised "average U.S. household income would increase at least $4,000 a year but could rise as much as $9,000 annually."

That hasn't happened. The Census Bureau reports "[m]edian household income was $63,179 in 2018, not statistically different from the 2017 median, following three consecutive years of annual increases." In other words, median income was growing somewhat and, after the passage of Trump's tax cuts, it stopped.

Working-class Americans don't think the economy is the greatest ever because, while the economy is growing, it is not improving their lives.

If you take a broader view, things get even bleaker. Overall, real median income has barely budged for the last two decades. This is a problem that transcends Trump. Regardless of what party has been in control, the average income has not meaningfully improved in twenty years.


Now they are privatizing the only road to income equality, as well as the crucial NEED for a democracy... education and they sell it to the people, by creating lobbyists who are trained by organizations using taxpayer money!
