President Obama just explained to a reporter why he feels Trump is unfit to be President. He didn’t get animated and yell, which is part of the point. In his usual calm, thoughtful manner President Obama outlined the many reasons. The key point he made is that it’s not about differing policy views or legal matters, it’s Trump’s inability to control his outbursts and “do the job.” He points out that he never claimed that his 2012 GOP opponent Mitt Romney was unfit. Prez O said other Republicans were certainly “fit for office” even if they had very different policy and world views. “That’s not the case here”, Obama said:
“Donald Trump lacks the basic decency, common sense and ability to do the job. He’s not fit to hold office.”
Of course, I completely agree, and that’s the other important point our President made. So do many tried and true Republican public servants and citizens who also see Trump as a national embarrassment. So, how can they endorse the guy for President? Obama asked the same question: “What does this say about your party that this is your standard bearer?” Our Commander-in-Chief continued, “This isn’t a situation where you have an episodic gaffe, this is daily and weekly occurrence where they (Republican leaders) must distance themselves from statements he’s making.”
One of my friends recently suggested that Trump may have early to moderate dementia. Don’t laugh. In retrospect, we know Reagan did, and Trump is older now than when Ronnie took office!
It would explain so much. Why he’s not sure if he met Russian President Putin or not. Why he doesn’t want a physical (by a reputable doctor) and won’t release his medical records. We should be more concerned about his health than his taxes! We already know he’s involved in lots of shady business deals, but we know NOTHING about his mental or physical health. Actually anyone who has taken Psychology 101 can see how he projects (his failings onto others.) He also displays delusions of grandeur, which according to the Encyclopedia of Psychology is “a symptom found in psychotic or bipolar disorders, as well as dementia (such as Alzheimer’s).”
REAL Republicans should take another look at the Libertarians on the November ballot. Former Governors Gary Johnson and Bill Weld served as Republicans and at least are “fit for office”, especially our Iron Man (former New Mexico Governor Johnson who has won and participated in several triathlons.)
