Donald Trump’s Rose Garden speech last week announcing his emergency declaration over the “crisis” at the southern border was rambling, incoherent, and unhinged: in short, everything we’ve come to expect from the 45th president of the United States.

There has never been a president quite like Trump: the all-caps tweets; his obsession with election results and crowd sizes; his bragging, his boasting, his childish point-scoring. And yet journalists treat him like any other politician instead of stating the obvious:

Donald Trump’s mental unfitness for office makes him a dangerous president. To discuss the situation and where we go from here, Mehdi Hasan is joined by Dr. Bandy X. Lee, a psychiatrist at the Yale School of Medicine, and by Trump’s biographer, David Cay Johnston.

David Cay Johnston: Donald has always been deeply mentally ill. He literally believes that he should be running not just the U.S. but the whole world, that the rest of us are all fools and idiots, and that he is genetically superior.

Mehdi Hasan: Welcome to Deconstructed. I’m Mehdi Hasan. With Donald Trump having declared a fake national emergency in order to seize more and more presidential power for himself, now might be a time to revisit a rather important question: Is this man mentally fit to hold such high office? To exercise so much power?

Bandy Lee: If you have someone saying they are a very stable genius, you would especially wonder about their mental health.

MH: That was Professor Bandy Lee, a psychiatrist at Yale University who’s editor of the book “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 27 Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President.” I’m also joined by a man who has been following Trump’s life and career for many decades now, and he’s sounding the alarm bell too.

DCJ: From the beginning, I have said that Donald is a clear and present danger to the safety not just of the U.S. but of the world.

  1. HAAA.. Mr. Johnson the U.S. tries mighty hard to run the whole world where in Hell have you been for the last 75 years ? When Congress resumes itself as being filled with Americans and not Dual Citizens it makes little difference who resides in the White House the cards are stacked against America .

  2. Lies about leaving Syria:

    https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/02/22/report-president-trump-to-leave-200-peacekeeping-troops-in-syria/

    Bolton and Pompeo likely tell Trump to leave troops in Syria illegally so if any are attacked, as they legitimately should be, this can be used as an excuse to attack Iran or start WWIII or both. Our government is nothing but con artists and liars. The U.S. is and has been in Syria totally illegally with zero authority. Of course their goal is to steal resources and start wars for Israel. Israel Lover Liar Trump is nothing but an Israeli stooge.

  3. Evidently the entire Trump family bought the Norman Vincent Peale “The power of positive thinking”. Here is an article about how this happened early in his life.

    However one must admit there is merit in this. One must have personal confidence in oneself. Perhaps he went too far but how far is too far. The great achievements in nearly any field depend on one taking risks, risks of being laughed at and belittled by others. It is relatively easy to do something others have already done. But to do something the first time is different and requires very special qualities. I once had a teacher who used the phrase, “If you think you can you will”. But of course this does not mean one can violate well established principles and laws of physics or mathematics. For example, the printing of money would be a form of getting something for nothing. In physics all one ever does is convert one form of energy to another form, with losses during the transfer. So far no one has been able to produce energy from nothing. But it is true that nature may provide a “hands up” by using the stored energy of say water at a nigher level to say turn a generator and produce electrical power. While this seems “free” still it depends on the water having been placed at a higher elevation to begin with. Many of the greatest inventors may have appeared to be “‘screwballs” to others especially psychologists and the like. Let’s say a prayer for some of the screwballs.

    • JohnZ: I think you know my low opinion of Trump. All I am saying is Norman Vincent Peale had a powerful delivery and a powerful message for all of us. Here are two brief quotes from him:
      “Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.” Norman Vincent Peale
      “It’s always too early to quit.” Norman Vincent Peale
