  1. Yes, the bludgers in Wall St and the thieves who own the pharma, insurance and arms rackets that have sucked the life out of the economy and impoverished millions of decent people. Going out to work? What work? A lot of jobs have been deliberately relocated so that companies can make increased profits pure and simple. Where are the jobs? I find it sad that people are rejoicing in the attacks on the most vulnerable while conveniently ignoring the further advantages being bestowed on the super rich.
  2. You may ask. No, I am not a mental health professional but I am a person who doesn't swallow the drivel of a politician who lurches from one disaster to another, who actually talks about locking up journalists, who insults America's allies and at the same time seems in awe of Russian and other authoritarian dictators, who stacks his cabinet with billionaires (some of them the very people who caused the melt-down of 2080) after promising to "drain the swamp." A man who fires his CIA director who was investigating his and his allies' links to direct Russian interference in US affairs and then ingratiates himself with those very Russians and denies links with them, links which stand out like dogs' balls. A self-absorbed man who is obsessed with his image and is hyper-sensitive to any criticism. In my opinion, a very disturbed individual. No, I'm not a mental health professional, but, to paraphrase Bob Dylan, "You don't need a weatherman to tell which way the winds blows." And a question to you, if you don't mind: Is there nothing about Trump that worries or concerns you?
  3. I forgot to add this in my last post: From the Mayo Clinic: DSM-5 criteria for narcissistic personality disorder include these features: Having an exaggerated sense of self-importance Expecting to be recognized as superior even without achievements that warrant it Exaggerating your achievements and talents Being preoccupied with fantasies about success, power, brilliance, beauty or the perfect mate Believing that you are superior and can only be understood by or associate with equally special people Requiring constant admiration Having a sense of entitlement Expecting special favors and unquestioning compliance with your expectations Taking advantage of others to get what you want Having an inability or unwillingness to recognize the needs and feelings of others Being envious of others and believing others envy you Behaving in an arrogant or haughty manner You don't think any of these symptoms apply to Trump?
  4. Well, I can read: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/us-politics/donald-trump-mental-health-new-york-times-incapable-being-president-warning-open-letter-a7578831.html Plus, you don't have to be a mental health expert to question these type of delusions to judge Trump to be mentally "off": - The inauguration was the biggest ever; - He invented the term "priming the pump': - "In a short period of time I understood everything there was to know about healthcare"; - Despite his own people telling him the opposite he insists that Obama had him tapped. I could provide a few dozen more examples. Do you question anything this man says/does? I admire loyalty but to cling to try and justify this man's unstable behaviour as anything short of odd is quite another thing.
  5. I respectfully wish to differ digger70. I think he is stupid. I think he is immature in the extreme, has a very limited attention span and almost pathologically needs acceptance and approval. Playing up to the Russians is an example of this, in my opinion. Those that say Trump has the right to share critically sensitive information may be formally correct but surely they concede that to hand on this information to Russia, at this time, during a CIA and House investigation into Russian interference and following a sensational and capricious sacking of the CIA director, is highly suspicious and disturbing. Growing numbers of Republicans are, or are they just part of a liberal/fake-news conspiracy? But enough of this analysing. I have always maintained that Trump is emotionally ill and I believe that this is at the root of the almost daily disasters that embroil the White House. Just look up a definition of Narcissistic Personality Disorder -- he ticks all boxes. I understand how Trump supporters must truly feel watching this mayhem unfold day after day. It must be demoralising but it only compounds the mess by trying to justify this sick man's erratic and dangerous zig zags and blaming it on the media, the liberals, the CIA, leaks, and so on. The man is unwell and all roads lead to him and his disturbed and disturbing actions.
  6. Is there the slightest chance that this is about Trump protecting his own back and not about Hillary Luckysilk? Would you concede that the dismissal was rather odd at this particular time, given that Comey was investigating Russian links to Trump's team and given the recent Flynn controversy?
  7. I don't think even Nixon would act as blatantly as this stevenl. This will be the biggest test yet of any Republican politician with a shred of integrity. If the GOP, collectively, allows this desperate abuse of power to go unchallenged then God help American democracy.
  8. Love it! Sean Spicer as mini me? Ivanka as Alotta Fagina?
  9. Ha! Maybe they could get a cartoonist in to simplify the papers even further. Kim Jong-un could be represented as Dr Evil and Trump as Austin Powers -- I'm sure the shagging overtones would command his attention immediately.
  10. Sort of hilarious and horrifying at the same time. This whole bizarre episode (on top of the countless others) makes you wonder whether this odd man has the capacity to read anything and make real sense of it. Endless extremely important and detailed documents must be put on his desk every day for study and judgement. It's disturbing to know that he probably understands very little of what he is supposed to make decisions on. Some days I get indignation fatigue following the erratic meanderings of this creepy, dangerous narcissist.
  11. And this simpleton has the nuclear codes sitting by him.
  12. ... Turnbull: No worries Mr President, just as long as you say something good to boost my stocks back home. People are really starting to hate my guts. Trump: Not a problem Mal, I sure can sympathise with that. Why don't we do a little immigrant bashing to take people's minds off the real stuff. Turnbull: I'll do anything to save my arse Don. Would you like me to make some extravagant promises and tell some real outrageous lies? Trump: Leave that to me Mal, I'm better at it than you.
  13. The thought of Trump and raw meat violations conjures up some pretty weird possibilities I reckon.
  14. Right on the money there sujoop. The heat from an array of issues (Bannon, Nunes, Gorsusch, and so on) stays off temporarily but this fragile, chaotic man has to now handle Xi Jingping, outplay Putin, juggle GOP forces and garner support from allies who he has publicly ridiculed and offended. All this with a Trump fingertip away from forces which could lead to the extinction of the human race. It's one thing being an entrepreneur and TV celebrity and totally another to lead a great nation through armed conflict and diplomatic dilemmas. Given this reckless clown's record so far, anything could happen. Stay tuned.
  15. Populist? Yes. Demagogue, yes. Liar, yes. Unstable, yes, Some very telling comment from the L A Times: http://www.latimes.com/projects/la-ed-our-dishonest-president/
