“Those who do not look upon themselves as a link connecting the past with the future do not perform their duty to the world” -
This is our reality:
At no other time in U.S. history has a group of mental health professionals been so collectively concerned about a sitting president.
If a regular person was acting as delusional as this president-
When there’s a sign of danger, it’s an emergency. So, what we do is we contain the person, remove them from access to weapons and do an urgent evaluation.
But this is the president we are talking about.
Thing of it is—Republicans KNOW he is mentally deteriorating. They know he is not well.
His own cabinet says they actively ignore him—even faking bad reception to get him off the phones. The Secretary of Defense and Chief of Staff have said they would literally tackle the man with the nuclear football. White House aides are “terrified” about the President’s mental health. For the first time in half a century, a Senate panel was convened on what would happen if a nutty president orders a nuclear strike. Some Pentagon leaders said they would ignore the president, but in reality, if Trump wants to start a nuclear war-
We could be facing nuclear Armageddon-
No matter what Trump says… no matter what he does. Anything-
It’s par for the course these days to call opponents of your ideology “crazy” or “insane”, but it’s generally understood that these are just insults. Sarah Palin was ignorant, incompetent, and intellectually lazy, but not insane. Anyone who’s bothered to watch Trump through the 80s, 90s, 2000s, and today can notice a YUGE difference in his intelligence and mental faculties. He is more paranoid, more delusional, and sees conspiracies everywhere He is more and more feeling “walled in", and he is clearly slipping.
Reassurances from his handlers are not encouraging—they can’t even get him to stop his early morning tweets.
When his treasonous collaboration with Putin is exposed for all to see, Trump will be a cornered, rabid animal who, in a hideous attempt at a destructive distraction, will lash out with all the deranged violence you have been groomed to expect.
Trump thought nothing of sending soldiers to die at Yakla and Niger with no preparations in an attempt to boost his ego—what do you think a violent man who is growing more erratic will do when his false reality that he lives in is truly threatened?
Not just the Mueller investigation. Fast forward to his next election-
Most people don't accept the precarious position we are in because we have always had someone in control, even if we didn’t like them. I hated George W Bush but I never thought he’d start a nuclear war if things didn’t go his way.
We don’t have a mentally fit person in office now, and our government is not set up to help us in this situation-
It falls to us. We have to work hard to elect responsible people who will put sorely needed checks on Trump’s power. We have to put procedures in place in case we ever again have a leader who can’t control himself. We need to fight like our lives depend on it. In this case, they actually might.
