Letter to the Editor: Trump is psycho.
It’s not merely my personal opinion that Vladimir Putin’s puppet Donald Trump is deranged, delusional, demented and profoundly psychotic. That’s the educated opinion of the American medical community.
In April of 2017, over 41,000 American mental health professionals signed and submitted the petition “Mental Health Professionals Declare Trump Is Mentally Ill And Must Be Removed,” which in part says the following:
“…Donald Trump manifests a serious mental illness that renders him psychologically incapable of competently discharging the duties of President of the United States. And we respectfully request he be removed from office, according to article 4 of the 25th amendment to the Constitution, which states that the president will be replaced if he is ‘unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office’…”
I couldn’t have said it any better myself! It could not possibly be any more obvious than it already is at this point that the moronic Mad King Trump is completely mentally incapacitated, not to mention stone cold crazy. Traitor Trump is sinking fast, and the American people are paying for President Trumptanic’s idiotic incompetence with their lives by the tens-of-thousands!
Do any of you asinine Trump acolytes actually believe injecting household cleaners like Lysol or Clorox into your lungs is a legitimate and effective, non-lethal medical treatment for a coronavirus infection, as recently recommended by infamously insane dotard Dr. Donald Trump the plump chump?
If anyone out there actually agrees with Jim Jones Trump’s psychotic lethal injection recommendation for COVID-19, please seek psychiatric help immediately. And stop drinking the orange Kool-Aid already, conservative cult members! Unlike the ridiculous Republican Party, most Americans don’t want to be Jonestowned.
Joe Biden for president, folks.
Letter to the editor | Trump, GOP letting Americans down.
Fox News host Lou Dobbs recently opined that Donald Trump was arguably America’s greatest president.
That is absolutely ludicrous.
Trump supporters and the Republican Party lie prostrate at Trump’s feet incredulously denying stark reality.
Trump spends his days watching Fox News, furiously tweeting insane and absurd conspiracy theories peddled incessantly by right-wing wackos.
Meanwhile, America crumbles. One hundred ten thousand Americans have perished in just 60 days and over 1,000 more Americans continue to die daily of COVID-19. Yet Trump claims he is doing a wonderful job. Delusional.
Forty-one million Americans have applied for unemployment in the past 60 days, outpacing the Great Depression.
Yet Trump and Republicans are opposed to the latest Democrat-passed relief bill sending checks to families struggling with rent and feeding their children with food obtained from massive “bread lines” staged countrywide. Shameful.
Trump and Republicans who caterwauled about Barack Obama’s $600 billion deficit produced a deficit of $1 trillion last year and estimates for 2020 are north of $3.5 trillion.
Trump and the Republican Party are massive failures. They continue to coddle dictators, major corporate entities, billionaires, hedge funds and banks while sticking it to state and local governments, first responders and families.
In stark contrast to Dobbs, one voter posted that though she voted for Trump in 2016, she would vote for a ham sandwich in 2020 before she would vote for Trump.
Who couldn’t have said it any better. Amen lady. Vote Democrat like your life and home depended on it.
A call to invoke the 25th Amendment.
Shouldn’t Mike Pence be president — at least until January 20, 2021? While in normal circumstances I would never endorse him, he should step in now. It is time for a citizens’ movement to demand the 25th Amendment to the Constitution be invoked and Donald Trump removed from office. Why? Because he is “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office,” as the statute states.
He is clearly not in his right mind. Before the US has even reached the peak of COVID-19 cases (which could stand at 400,000 when you read this), he recklessly said, “I would love to have the country opened up and raring to go by Easter.” While he backed away from that idea — pushed by health expert recommendations — he did so reluctantly and didn’t acknowledge his about-face.
Is it rational to suggest — as Trump did a couple of weeks ago that health professionals told him that more people will die from the economic impact than coronavirus? Equating economic health with people’s lives is, well, crazy. (Trump refused to identify the health experts he fictitiously cited.)
Whenever Trump, flanked by the White House Coronavirus Task Force, steps before the cameras he displays why he is unfit. The doctors serving on that task force — especially Anthony Fauci — witness his rants daily (up close and too personal). Imagine Dr. Fauci leading a delegation to congressional leaders and the Trump cabinet to call for his removal. It isn’t hard to do. You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one.
The Teflon president who has survived sex, lies, and Ukrainian tapes — even impeachment — is too dangerous to be allowed to remain in office — not for several more days, let alone several more months.
Tale his tirades against Democratic governors, or his March 20 tirade against NBC News reporter, Peter Alexander, who asked Mr. Trump what he wished to say to those Americans who are scared about the coronavirus spreading across the country. With millions frightened, Alexander gave Trump an opportunity to reassure an anxious nation. In response, Trump spat out, “I say that you are a terrible reporter. That’s what I say — ” and then let loose a torrent of invective against Alexander. What president in his right mind would turn a moment to act as consoler-in-chief into a hysterical rant? (By contrast VP Pence answered, “I would say, ‘Do not be afraid to be vigilant.’”)
Are Trump’s supporters scared more of his wrath than they are of the virus? Are they blind to his erratic behavior? Sen. Mitt Romney was the lone Republican to vote to convict at Trump’s impeachment trial. Why don’t we flood his office calling on the former Massachusetts governor to meet with Dr. Fauci to discuss Trump’s removal.
“These are psychiatric symptoms, not simply boorish behaviors,” Dr. John Talmadge, clinical professor of psychiatry at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center tweeted recently, suggesting Trump is not sound of mind. “Trump is mentally ill, cognitively compromised, brain impaired.…” We must not become the frog slowly boiling in poisoned water.
With millions of people living through the pandemic being urged — ordered — to stay indoors, and as world economies barely hang on, it is more than irresponsible to continue to use the presidential bully pulpit to proclaim he has “a good feeling” that the antimalarial drug chloroquine could be a cure for COVID-19: it is delusional and a health hazard. No clinical trials have been completed to reliably suggest the drug as a treatment. In fact, an Arizona man died and his wife was hospitalized after they took chloroquine phosphate after hearing Trump suggest it as a possible effective treatment for the virus.
Dr. Bandy X. Lee, clinical professor of psychiatry at the Yale School of Medicine, told Medhi Hasan of “The Intercept” that Trump “dangerously lacks mental capacity, which he exhibits through his inability to take in information and advice, to process critical information, or to consider consequences before making impulsive, unstable, and irrational decisions that are not based in reality but fight reality.” She pointed out that at coronavirus briefings he exhibits “delusional-level distortion and misinformation” because he is “disconnected from reality.”
Wildfire damage is easy to see. Earthquakes and hurricanes, too. The mental illness of a president endangering our country is right in front of us if we simply open our eyes.
Out of his depth, yes; out of his mind, definitely. Out of office? Only if we push to make it happen.
