Former governor and DNC Chair Howard Dean said that he thought Trump might be getting psychotic after the president’s recent Twitter outbursts.
Dean said on MSNBC‘s The Beat with Ari Melber when asked if the White House is prepared for a Democratic House takeover, “I think they are pretty much wholly unprepared to do anything. Trump is a guy who just thinks in the moment. He has no plan. I actually thought the other day when he was making all those really crazy tweets he might be getting psychotic. So I don’t think there’s any long-term planning. I think the staff tries to engage in long-term planning but you’ve got these neo-Nazi types like Stephen Miller running around. He has an agenda, not the end good of America, but he sucks Trump in every time. There’s an incredibly short-sighted group of people. The ones that have a long-term vision can’t get anything done because Trump is unmanageable.”
Trump is getting psychotic?
The only objection that some might have with Dean’s characterization is that he qualified Trump‘s behavior as getting psychotic. Some would say, although I’m not one of them, that Trump already is psychotic. Dean was correct in that this administration is utterly incapable of doing anything. They don’t have an agenda. They can’t lead to get legislation passed, and their idea of responding to a crisis is a tweet.
Trump is going to be eaten alive if Democrats win back the House.
The president doesn’t have the mental stability, leadership skills, vision, or the political savvy to survive.
Unhinged Trunp may not stand a chance.
