MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace reported that her sources inside the White House tell her that Trump is increasingly delusional.
Wallace said that what she is hearing from inside the White House, “is that he increasingly projects a delusional version of himself to himself and his Twitter followers. This is someone staring in the mirror of his own most rabid fans, and feeding them only what he thinks they will believe without acknowledging that it’s moving further and further away from reality.”
Eli Stokols of The Wall Street Journal added, “I’ve heard the word delusional from some folks as well.” Stokols added that there is no one in the administration to give the President a reality check, which means that the delusional president is running wild in the White House.
It can’t be stressed enough that Trump’s behavior is not a part of some grand political strategy. There is no rationality to Trump’s actions. The man is delusional. Since there is no version of a presidential recall vote in the United States, the only option that the American people have is to vote for a Democratic Congressional majority in 2018 that will act as a check on Trump.
Trump is increasingly making delusional statements about himself and his presidency in public. The President is not well, and it is past time for many in the media and the government to stop avoiding the discussion about Trump’s mental state and competency. If Trump really is delusional, he should not be allowed to continue as President Of The United States.
