For the last 5 years, I’ve served as power of attorney for a severely mentally ill veteran. He’s got a 100% disability rating. He’s deemed legally “incompetent.” When he’s ill, he can even scare me and I don’t scare easily.
The behavior of “President” Donald J Trump in last nights debate was worse than anything I’ve seen out of my ward on his worst day.
There are rules, there is decorum, there is reality, there are facts- unless you are mentally ill.
If this had been court of law, instead of a debate stage, the judge would have had him bound and gagged.
If he had been in an encounter with the police, he’d have been arrested and put in a straight jacket (he’s white, so he probably wouldn’t have been tazed).
Is this the man we want in charge of our armed forces with his finger anywhere near the button?
Can we wait till the people speak on election day, when even if he gets his butt kicked across the nation with maybe the exception of Wyoming and South Dakota, he declares himself the winner and refuses to leave office, or worse, decides to order his “Proud Boys” to let loose?
It’s pretty obvious the Senate has been ignoring his deranged behavior, giddy with their freedom to exert unchecked power, granted by a man who loves civil unrest and riots because he believes they help his cause.
And what may his cause be you ask? After failing at business, blowing through daddy’s money, believing his fantasy construction of “success” – he’s somehow mastered the “fake it until you make it” axiom. Of course, he denies he has had help from the Russians. He somehow can’t understand that his business empire is a sham, and when the notes come due, he plans to either still be in position to blow up the world, or comfortably living in Moscow laughing at how stupid we were to allow him the honor of being president.
If our Congress can’t act, if they won’t act, if the Supreme Court doesn’t intervene to question the sanity of the man on stage last night in that “debate”- they too are complicit in the fall of our great country.
That this isn’t the topic of discussion in D.C. this morning is further evidence that our country has lost its way. That our politicians, that our military leaders, that everyone who calls themselves an American, isn’t ready to divorce ourselves and our country from this mentally ill, psychotic, narcissistic sycophant. It’s right there in the oath of office, the oath to serve:
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.
Take him out of the office, lock him up, silence him and his treasonous questioning of the legitimacy of elections; his threats of using military power against the people, before we no longer have a democracy.
We never heard of “Antifa” until his ascendancy. I never thought of myself as “anti-fascist” in my life- but I do now. Donald Trump is a fascist and he has no intention of working within our system of a democratic republic, therefore, he must be removed for our republic to continue. If you always believed you are an American, you too, must join me in calling for his immediate removal.
The stakes are too high. And the signs are too obvious. Donald Trump is unfit to serve as president. Remove him. Save our country.
