"Look, I could blow up that Russian ship thirty miles away and everyone would think it's great! Never mind it'd start a nuclear war!"
"Let’s not mumble or whisper about the central issue facing our country: What is this democratic nation to do when the man serving as president of the United States plainly has no business being president of the United States? The Michael Flynn fiasco was the entirely predictable product of the indiscipline, deceit, incompetence and moral indifference that characterize Donald Trump’s approach to leadership. " E.J. Dionne, The Washington Post, 'Admit It: Trump Is Unfit To Serve'
"Today was a turning point. Today was historically bad, not just for President Trump but also for the office of the presidency. Look, it's obvious to the nation the emperor has no clothes. Our boy president has surrounded himself by a team that tells him his coat is beautiful - but he's not wearing one. Let's recognize the heartbreak in this ...that we might be faced with a President who is not up to the task of the office he ran for and what do we do with that?" Fmr. Rep. David Jolly (R-FLA)
"President Trump’s mental state is like a train that long ago left freewheeling and iconoclastic, has raced through indulgent, chaotic and unnerving, and is now careening past unhinged, unmoored and unglued." - David Brooks, NY Times today
The fool and presidential pretender Trump tried to hold a press conference yesterday, but from start to finish it was the classical clusterfuck and showed again why this lunatic shouldn't be in charge of a dog kennel - far less running a country. Donald J. Trump showed again he's totally detached from reality to the point he can't even discern how certain acts could trigger a nuclear war and even unable to tell that his electoral vote win was not the "biggest since Reagan". When questioners tried to correct the wacky claim he merely fobbed them off with baldersdash, e.g. "that's what I was told".
Told? How about doing your own research first, asshole? But, of course, this doofus doesn't read, at least not genuine newspapers. So when he spews out BS to the press corps like: "The public doesn't believe you people any more." we have a first inkling on why he is so clueless. He only reads the nutso fake news on Breitbart.com or the tweets from his pal Limburger, who actually told him his fiasco yesterday was "the best press conference ever". If Trump actually read a real paper as opposed to a bogus website (like Alex Jones' 'Infowars') he might have known he was talking shit when he claimed the largest electoral vote win "since Reagan".
Predictably, Trump dismissed claims that he owed his election victory to Moscow’s interference on Thursday, insisting “Russia is fake news.” Hmmmm....so are the intelligence gathering services of this nation 'fake' too? Are your PDBs? Oh wait, Trump doesn't even read them - he used to have Flynn do that and then reduce them to baby gruel for him to digest. So, from this, one must conclude he regards all the intel reports - including those which could warn of a terror attack - as "fake" too.
"Dump", who has been rocked by the resignation of his national security adviser and dogged by months of speculation about his links to Vladimir Putin’s Russia, repeatedly denied reports he or associates on his presidential campaign had had contact with Russian intelligence operatives in advance of the November election, calling the reports “fake news”.
