Bubbles in the think tank.......

The most disturbing brouhaha about  Hurricane Doria  isn’t Trump’s clumsy effort to doctor a National Weather Service map or even his brazen move to get the NWS to bullshit about his involvement.

It’s about how stupidly  petty his motive was. We’ve had presidents trying to cover up a sexual liaison with an intern and a botched burglary, but never have we had one who went to such absurd lengths to cover  up his claim that Alabama was going to be hit by a hurricane?  Face it, this is not rational behaviour.

Not long after Trump also cancelled a meeting with Taliban representatives  The meeting was to have been secret. It was scheduled for the week of the anniversary of 9/11. He cancelled it by tweet.
Does any of this strike you as even remotely rational?

Lets not forget the long planned Denmark visit cancelled because Denmark wouldn’t sell Greenland to the US. Hello?.... Greenland wasn’t for sale. The US no longer buys populated countries.
Agitating to to explore the possibilities of using nuclear bombs to stop hurricanes  hitting the US and believing that video games are behind the surge in mass shootings are symptomatic of a failing mind.
I find it easy to believe the story that he has never read a book, gets his information from Fox and people who are agreeable to his ideas and is an extremely ignorant man who has been cocooned in a bubble of wealth all his life.

No president has ever been given the DCM. Nixon resigned because he saw it coming. Trump would sooner start a civil war.
He says trade wars are “good and easy to win”. He insists it’s Chinese rather than US consumers who pay his tariffs. He “orders” American firms to stop doing business in China.

The Chairman of the Federal reserve  is now the “enemy” and retweets a comedian’s sick suggestion that the Clintons were responsible for the suicide of convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

I think we have to face the truth that no one seems to want to admit. This is no longer a case of excessive narcissism or grandiosity. We’re not simply dealing with an unusually large ego.
The president of the United States is seriously, frighteningly, dangerously unstable. And he’s getting worse by the day.
