The "addled, lazy, and belligerent man-child" POTUS

When trump was a candidate he bragged about having only "the best people" in his administration.

Here's what "the best people" in his administration have said about their boss, DJT:

Economic Adviser, Gary Cohn:  "dumb as shit"

National Security Adviser, H.R. McMaster:  "a dope"

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson:  "a f***ing moron"

former Deputy Chief of Staff Katie Wash "a child"

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin 

and former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus:  "idiot"

Rupert Murdoch:  "f***ing idiot"

What is astonishing is that these are all condemnations and scathing insults from #45's own "best people" who are INSIDE his administration, not from the opposition!

According to Wolff's book, "The Fire and the Fury," 100% of his people agree that Trump is incapable of doing his job as POTUS.

Does that stir at least a bit of unease within his base -- actually, his cult, because only cultists stick with someone so obviously unhinged and demented.  Will his cultists ever wake up from their delerium? 

But wait!  There's more!

From Andrew Sullivan's report in New York magazine:

"We have a president who never really wanted to be president...

His main activities are tweeting responses to Fox News stories in real time and playing golf. 

He is openly contemptuous of a Constitution he doesn’t even pretend to understand, wants to use the Justice Department to prosecute his political enemies and protect himself, and actually boasts in public about the size of his nuclear “button” (which doesn’t actually exist). 

We have record levels of social and economic inequality, along with unprecedented peacetime debt, and the only serious legislative achievement of an all-Republican federal government is a massive transfer of wealth to the very rich, funded through an increase in the national debt of close to a trillion dollars. 

We are experiencing the first catastrophes of an era of climate change and the other main achievement is the scrapping of environmental regulations, and opening up the Arctic to oil exploration. Oh, and Neil Gorsuch."


Michael Wolff’s new book also confirms what we already knew: that the White House is a smoldering crater of chaos and dysfunction. 

Wolff claims that every single White House source he talked to believes Trump is “incapable of functioning in his job.” We have heard these claims about presidents before — but usually from the opposition, not from the White House itself, let alone unanimously. 

But Wolff’s piece in The Hollywood Reporter yesterday also confirmed what is obvious about Trump’s fast-eroding mental health: 

“Everybody was painfully aware of the increasing pace of his repetitions. It used to be inside of 30 minutes he’d repeat, word-for-word and expression-for-expression, the same three stories — now it was within 10 minutes.” 

And: “At Mar-a-Lago, just before the new year, a heavily made-up Trump failed to recognize a succession of old friends.” 

This addled, lazy, and belligerent man-child is nonetheless engaged in a war of insults and threats against a nuclear-armed dictatorship, with the capacity to kill millions. No head of any nuclear-armed country has ever said in public what Trump has now repeatedly broadcast to the world."

When the people closest to him, in some cases work with him on a daily basis, say things like this, perhaps we should be listening and believing them.

Jerry, we figured this out about his character in June 2015. It is astonishing to understand what his cultists will tolerate to get their agenda passed.They've embraced a demented despot and forever lost all credibility as people who love their country. They've put it in the hands of an incompetent idiot --Trump's own people's assessment!

Ray Cranston said...

Michael Wolf:

"My credibility is being questioned by a man who has less credibility than, perhaps, anyone who has ever walked on Earth at this point."

The book is just fueling the anti-Trump dementia. Seems a lot of people figured out if they want to get on the lamestream media, just knock Trump.
But it's not going to help. President Trump is NOT going anywhere, not going to be impeached or another of the nonsense that you libs are praying for.

So Deal With It!

Jerry Critter said...

I just want to go on record to say that I am not part of the “anti-Trump dementia”. I am very much PRO-Trump dementia. In fact, I would go as far as to say that Trump is fucking crazy!

Shaw Kenawe said...

JerryHow does a book fuel anti-ANYTHING dementia? Dementia is a neurological disease, and AFAIK, books cannot cause a neurological disease, unless, of course, they're written by Ann Coulter. I'm not sure her books cause a disease, but they sure would lower anyone's IQ after reading them.

F.B.l., You're not paying attention. If you were, you'd have understood that TRUMP'S OWN PEOPLE IN HIS OWN ADMINISTRATION are insulting him (knocking) him. You really need to sharpen your reading skills.

As for anyone "dealing with it," I suggest you give that advice to Lord Dampnut. He's not dealing very well with all the horrendously embarrassing revelations about him in Wolff's book. SAD!

Shaw all you need to to is remind your visiting trolls that the FBI is investigating Trump and that two of his people have been charged with felonies =-- Mike Flynn, Trump's NSA! FFS! and two are under indictment one of them Trump's campaign manager.

Barack Obama? No criminal investigations of his presidency or anyone else in eight effing years. All of what's happening in the Trump WH and it's not even one year into his term!

Those trolls will deflect and yell HILLARY! to keep the focus off of the crime boss currently in the White House. Laugh at them. The Repukes are dirty They attract characters like Trump.

tRump must feel the screws turning.

I like the revelation that he prefers fast food because he's frightened of being poisoned.
A real paranoid loon.

Fast food will kill him faster than poison!

Too bad mental rot doesn't do the same. Trump would be on his way out.
