  1. “One of the things he has a habit of doing is jumping on Twitter and making claims that are demonstrably false even when he has to know that the chances of his bluff being called are high. And of course the more angry you make people, the higher the chances that they’ll call your bluff when they get the chance.”

    These words caught my eye: “even when he has to know that the chances of his bluff being called are high.”

    I’ve always wondered why Trump repeatedly places himself in the position only to get caught by his short hairs. His court fans attribute it to sly Svengali-like strategy that we are to dumb to see. But this reader’s comment on Amazon for the book “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 27 Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President,” sounds right as a reason why Trump has this strange habit of getting caught up:

    “What is most awesome about *The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump* is that most of what is written here rings true. The authors introduce concepts I was not familiar with that such as those relating to Trump’s relationship with time. Unlike most of us who consider the future impact of our actions, Trump responds in the moment, to assuage his ego needs vs. thinking ahead about the harm his comments might cause. We are witness to his in-the-moment orientation in his attachment to Twitter. Some journalists and pundits have convinced themselves, and tried to convince us, that Trump’s Tweets and other interference’s are strategic, meant to give him “wins”. The authors here confirm that this simply is not so. The delusion that Trump has some secret wisdom leaves us in danger of following Trump down the rabbit hole to our own destruction.”

  2. Presidents of the past seemed more invested in the country. Even other billionaires like the Bush’s seemed more invested. Why do we keep voting for billionaires? If it must be lets force Gates to be president. That guy should have been president. He knows how to get shot done

  3. “Trump has been caught in yet another lie and he should have known this was going to happen.”

    Ha ha ha ha, that’s rich, H! Y’all calling him unhinged for a year, and expect him to act hinged all of a sudden????

    “Now let’s see how he tries to spin this one.”

    He’ll ignore it like he has most of the other 1,317 lies. Time to stop normalizing this loon with expectations of rational acting.

  4. Like cult members, his core followers will believe everything he says. All we can hope id that enough citizens have the mental capacity , to realize he must not serve a second term.
