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?

 

 

 

 

 

 

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

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. 

 

 

 

 

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?

For some of those yes.

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. 

 

 

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.

At least it is interesting to watch, a bit like allow speed train wreak. I just wonder how long it will continue. Some of the stuff he is saying / ranting is just bizarre and you can see a lack of respect from people in the audience. . He seems to be a tinfoil hat conspiracy theorists with all the stuff he is saying about fake news. I wonder if he believes in aliens and Area 51, I guess he is in the position to find out if it is really true.

I can't see him lasting much more than 2, if the democrats take power. It all depends on how he behaves. He is also a sitter for something health related to happen, and he doesn't look all that healthy.

From Fox News:
Trump overturns the bill that protects streams from having coal mining debris dumped into them. You can watch the video. This is one busy president.

Women’s Difficulties That Melania Trump Feels Very, Very Strongly About

The New Yorker, February 16, 2017

A random selection, quoted verbatim:


Child-Care Costs

Child care is perhaps the most important feminist issue, and right now it is far too expensive.
For example, it costs an estimated five hundred thousand dollars a day for the Secret Service to take my son to and from school.
I am lucky enough to have the taxpayers cover this expense, but this is a cost that most women cannot afford.
