Trump couldn’t keep it together long enough to get through the commencement address at Liberty University without ranting about his critics.
Trump went off on a tangent that showed that he is cracking up under the pressures of the presidency.
Trump said, “In my short time in Washington, I’ve seen first-hand how the system is broken. A small group of failed voices, who think they know everything, and understand everyone, want to tell everybody else how to live and what to do and how to think. But you aren’t going to let other people tell you what you believe, especially when you know that you are right.”
Donald Trump always believes that he is correct and his judgment is all that matters. Trump has made bad decision after bad decision during his brief time as president, and he has done so because he listens to no one. He doesn’t listen to his advisers. Trump doesn’t listen to his own White House staff. Donald Trump watches Fox News and then decides what to do.
Trump really believed that Democrats would praise the Comey firing. Even though people around him on both sides of the aisle tried to tell the President that he was making a mistake, Trump fired Comey anyway. Trump is not capable of learning. He is not going to get smarter or grow into the job of being president.
He is cracking under the pressure of being unfit to govern.
His critics aren’t a small group. They are the overwhelming majority of the country.
The Humpty Dumpty presidency of Donald J. Trump is about to fall down and never be put back together again.
