Just watched the whole press conference, he is his own worst enemy.

 

He is correct that the majority of the media is biased against him, but instead of pointing it out in a coherent and reasonable way he just goes on and on about how dishonest they supposedly are.

Wrong, one cannot make a diagnosis either way without one on one consultation and assessment.

 

 

I think sometimes you can form a valid opinion about something without necessarily having to be a qualified expert. If your car makes noises like someone attacking sheet metal with a chainsaw, you don’t have to be a mechanic to conclude that there is probably something wrong with the engine.

 

If someone tells you he thinks he smells smoke, and it might be prudent to leave the building, are you going to wait for a qualified fire chief to give you permission?

Mr Trump is correct about the Rasmussen Poll

 

 

 

 

My Trump picks and chooses whatever supports his preconceptions. The Rasmussen Poll is known to have a strong right-wing bias.

If several psychiatrists and psychologists tell you the leader of the free world may have a mental disorder, and it might be prudent for him not to be in charge of a nuclear arsenal...

 

EDIT: I am not asserting that Trump does, or doesn't, have a mental disorder. Just pointing out your augment can be used both ways.

I'm not quite sure where this discussion is going. I think it is safe to say that a fair number of people have reservations about Mr Trump's leadership capabilities, at least where the presidency of the United States is concerned. I think it can also be said that most contributers to this forum probably agree that America could have made a better choice.

Not when it comes to conditions of the mind and medicine in general.

Of course he does along with every other politician and a huge percentage of the populous in general.

Do I need a qualification to call Trump a vain, petty, bullying, belittling, mean, mendacious, nasty, pathological, megalomaniac small-handed blowhard?

It may not be going anywhere, but it gives us a place to vent!

The problem was that it was hardly much of a choice. It was really picking who was the least worst.   It think it was more down to the Democrats and Republican parties making poor choices. As Trump rightly said, he was more worried if he had to run against Sanders.

In my view that was a weak argument during the campaign and it has proven to be completely wrong post election.

 

There is no way on earth Hillary could ever have been anywhere near as incompetent, crooked and as dangerous as Trump as been in his first 4 weeks - and any sane person should have known that during the campaign.

Agreed.

 

The present fiasco was entirely predictable.   frown

 

 

 

 

 

EDIT:  By "predictable", I mean that there would be political chaos.

 

Nothing else about Trump's behavior is predictable - which is the problem.
