Make America Great Again—Trump Must Go #50
EDITORIAL | 1/11/2018, midnight
OK, you say you are a “very stable genius,” but why should we believe you? President Trump, you have been such lying hypocrite, and we wonder what IQ test determined this outcome, although we know it is merely your estimation of your intelligence.
For a sitting or unseated president to make such a claim of his mental condition is reason enough to doubt his ability to render a sound judgment.
Folks, we know you find this claim to be the mother of incredibility, but we are not making it up. Here’s how the monster of tweet put it: “Actually, throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart. Crooked Hillary Clinton also played these cards very hard and, as everyone knows, went down in flames. I went from VERY successful businessman, to top T.V. Star ... to president of the United States (on my first try). I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius ... and a very stable genius at that!”
There you are. And with this self-serving evaluation, Trump’s lunacy has reached a new plateau. We recall a Doonesbury cartoon back in the summer in which Duke is chastised by his wife for practicing psychiatry without credentials. He is told that he is not a psychiatrist and therefore not qualified to comment on the president’s mental health. “But I’m not a trained ornithologist either, but I know a duck when I see one,” Duke replies.
Back in October, a team of trained psychiatrists offered their diagnosis of the president, concluding that he is dangerous. The group, Duty to Warn, claimed that Trump “suffers from an incurable malignant narcissism that makes him incapable of carrying out his presidential duties and poses a danger to the nation.”
The group’s end purpose is to keep pushing for a critical mass in Congress to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office. Such a move, at least at this stage of the game, is highly unlikely because the measure requires the consent of Vice President Pence and members of the cabinet.
Nope, we are not trained psychiatrists, but we know a nut when we see one, and Trump has demonstrated all the traits of an unstable megalomaniac. We need to exercise whatever tactic possible to get him out of the White House. With him out of the Oval Office and off to a mental institution, there would be no need to chant—Make America Great Again—Trump Must Go!
