Trump’s recent announcement that he is investigating low flow toilets and renewed calls for the president to undergo a psychological evaluation.
Trump said on December 6, “We have a situation where we’re looking very strongly at sinks and showers and other elements of bathrooms where you turn the faucet on in areas where there’s tremendous amounts of water and the water rushes out to sea because you could never handle it. And you don’t get any water; you turn on the faucet and you don’t get any water.”
Donny Deutsch said on Monday’s Morning Joe on MSNBC, “You know, that’s cuckoo for cocoa puffs. That’s a crazy person. Really, if you were going to get a therapist in to look at that and that drift and that mind and where he was going, that’s not a well man. We kind of laugh, if we looked at that, if that was uncle Joe, I don’t mean uncle Biden or Louis, you’d call the internist and say, should we get him checked? Because that’s a mind that’s not right.”

Never in American history has a president ranted about toilet flushing and light bulbs, and planned to use the power of his office to launch an investigation. Trump should be evaluated by a doctor, but since that day will never come, it will be up to the voters to conduct their own psych eval and removal from office next November.
