While claiming mental stability along with intellectual “genius” status, President Trump shows increasingly disturbing signs of gross mental instability. His expletive-infused reference to virtually a third of all nations on earth is a remark that no truly stable president would ever utter. It cannot be swept under the rug. Even Republican members of Congress, increasingly protecting this president from needed scrutiny, must admit that no defense for this latest public display of indecency can be offered, though it’s a certainty that some will try.
President Trump is a huge embarrassment to decency and to the American public. While he has a small core of rabid supporters— as well as neo-Nazis, white supremacists, skinheads, etc. —who will cheer such remarks, they do not represent true Americans, whatever their political stripe.
This is the latest indication —in fact, proof— of a man occupying the Oval Office who has no right to be there. He is deeply racist, deeply mentally unstable human, harboring the ability to act normally for brief periods of time. Increasingly his Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde personality shows through. This is a seriously dangerous characteristic. It can lead to devastating results at any time.
