Can We All Agree: Trump is Insane.

    I find it hard to believe that even people who voted for Donald Trump aren't starting to realize that there is something seriously wrong with him. He is either insane or such a narcissist that he's incapable of rational thought.

    Let's not even talk about his policies. Let's just discuss his irrational statements in the last 24 hours. He told the CIA the media invented his problems with them when he's quoted as accusing them of leaking information and losing the war against ISIS when all intelligence points to the opposite. But I suppose that's debatable.

    Then there's the absolutely crazy stuff about crowd sizes at his inauguration (why does he even care?). It's verifiable that the crowd size was low compared to past inaugurations and to the size of the women's march on Washington. Again, why does he even care. He lied about the fact that it was raining during his speech. And then there was this statement about the IQ of his cabinet. Maybe his cabinet is the smartest and maybe it isn't. He seems to be confusing smart with rich.

    The point almost isn't even that he's lying. It's more like: why does he even care about this stuff or waste his time with it?

        Let's play with a little logic, if logic is allowed.
        Let me ask you---are you a psychiatrist to call anybody "insane"? Even if you were, you are forgetting that it takers many tests before you can come to that kind of diagnosis. A psychopath can act as a perfectly normal person---all until he snaps and kills someone; so no visible symptoms are necessary to be really insane. But here you go playing an expert.

        I would assume that you also agree with those who are calling Trump a "Hitler", or a "dictator". Let me refresh your memory: Hitler was infamous for basically three things: he occupied other countries, he put all Jews in a concentration camp, and he had all of his opponents killed. How does that translate to anything that Trump is doing? Moreover, according to the REAL insanities on the streets these days that pass for "messages", it's not likely that he is going to "kill" anybody, but the opposite looks much more likely. And then, how in the SANE minds of his opponents can he become a dictator in a country where presidents get impeached if they go extremists??? Why is that word "dictator" even mentioned, unless we just want to dump on someone any crappy thing that comes on our SANE minds.

        Let's leave "insanity", and move to the question of --- what do you REALLY know about Trump? Since you don't know the dude personally, you must "know" him from what you are hearing from the media, right?
        Now, do you also "know" that media is calling Hillary a traitor, that her prosecution is only a little matter of collecting enough evidence from those agencies that are slacking the process? Do you know that media was saying some horrible stuff about the Clinton Foundation and where the money was coming from?
        Oh, I got you...you "don't care" about that part of the media, only the one that's  demonizing Trump. Again, 1) you don't know Trump personally, 2) you only know what the media is saying, 3) you find yourself competent to decide which side of the media is speaking truth. Hmmm, interesting.

        Furthermore, how much do you know about the business of running a country? I mean, do you have degrees in economy, politics, home security, education...all that stuff?
        I mean, if you are calling Trump incompetent, you must "know" it from a  perspective of an expert. Again, it's obvious that you are just picking sides, and joining the bunch of other pissed-off "experts" who KNOW exactly how to smash store windows, burn cars and beat the Trump's supporters. Long live democracy!!! And then, of course, it is Trump who is "hateful", yeah, right.

        For my last word, a little surprise---I don't give a rat's behind who gets elected in the US because I am a Canadian, and for another difference, I can use some logic.
        Now you can delete all this, because it would be so typical. LOL.

              Look up many famous doctors who given their opinions on Trump either narcissist, a Megalomaniac or psychopath or Emotional and mentally retarded.  From my personal experience with Trump I concur. After seeing porn tapes of his wife having foot longs and tossed salad, Trump screws people on both ends too.

                  I think many of us agree (certainly not all) that Castle is floating the opposite way of Trump in a place that is just as dangerous. His ego is as big as Trump's & he likes to puff up drama in fancy ways - I'm guessing to impress people. He seems to need back-pats as much as Trump - even if he is the only one doing it for himself, LoL!

                  The First Lady is cool and so is Ivanka - I don't really know much about his other kids; and I worry about Barron. I bet Melania does, too. It can't be very comfortable to know that her husband has brought so much hate down on their heads. She seems very protective of him and I'm glad someone is. I really liked her 'no more mean words' speech & wish Donald & his supporters would have taken it to heart. She looked great in that gown on inaguration night. Her & Ivanka bring a little bit of class & elegance into a very unsophisticated atmosphere. Kelly certainly doesn't. It helps.

                  At first I did believe yet had a tiny doubt because of her pass that's hidden in the dark with her plastic surgery. Nobody in the world is better at covering up muzzling people than Donald. 

                  There were wittiness's and signatures that claim Melania was in porn business. Still was not convince. But then again, when the US government can delusion America that the 9/11 was not an inside job, Then Trump uses that BS and lies to ban and attack Muslims they will lie about anything.

                  Being one of best human figure sculptor in the world in my sculpting materials. I study other fakes like the other Trump in the blue tie, true not the real Trump. Tiffany in porn, from what I saw, fake. Now from studying Melania in 6 porn tapes, two were fake and the 4 were shocking true. I know Melania movements, her voice, her distinctive smile and markings. I do make ID detective work sometimes for the police, they trust my ID talents to identified criminals actuality over two dimensional weak drawings or photo shop. I don't know the original Melania well enough even through many documenters and don't care to study dog sex tapes. I don't care if she has sex with women or men or Donald having sex with a 100 women.

                  I care about too many lies and two or more people killing each other,  behind Trumps house of cards.

      The kind of people who support Trump are so desperate for success, more of what they already have, poor to the point of desperation, etc. that they don't care about those things.

      They have so little life experience that they cannot recognize an insane man when they see one. Nor are they informed enough to know that he is a major crook and an incompetent business man.

      One cannot fight with ignorance. It's the Dunning Kruger effect.

              I am not a Trump's supporter; actually I am a cynic when it's about leadership, since I don't trust any politician. However, I find it extremely amusing as I see so many non-sequiturs in the ways Trump is being accused.
              For an example, about his illegal aliens policy.
              He never said that he hated ALL Latinos, but his plan to screen those illegal aliens for their criminal record right away was twisted into such a "hate".
              Let's see an example in this matter.
              Suppose a bunch of homeless people storm your home, help themselves with your food, and tell you that you have to support them from now on, BECAUSE THEY ARE THERE NOW. Would you let them stay, because it would be an "inhuman thing" to show them the door ---or should I make it just a rhetorical question?
              Come on, folks, it's one thing to be a good Christian, and an entirely another thing to be naively altruistic. But again, because it's not about YOUR money, but TAXPAYERS' money, Trump is called a "racist".

              Then he made a typically-man's remark about women in some locker room, and that right away made him a "woman-hater". I shamelessly admit that I have told many jokes about blondes' intelligence, without having absolutely nothing against their intelligence. If I did, that wouldn't say much about my own, right? But, that's another non-sequitur, another illogical conclusion made just out of an obvious intention to dump as much as possible against his qualification for a president. For Pete's sake, even the size of his hands and his hair style somehow found a place on his bad  resume---what else should we say about the objectivity of his accusers.

              It amuses me no end to read all those sterile slogans against him that stand there without any real support of some healthy arguments. Just stating that "he is going to ruin the country...that he is going to start another world war...that he doesn't know what he is doing"...and alike ---are empty slogans, not concrete proofs of anything. And, as for him being a "narcissist", why not, it takes one to ever aiming at getting that much power. In that respect he is not any different from any imaginable candidate---except for the fact that he doesn't bother hiding it.

              Again, despite what it may look like, I am not taking Trump's side. I am not for him or against him, if he was my president (I am a Canadian), I would give the dude a chance to either do something for the nation or to be impeached. It would be downright naïve to expect that the Congress will impeach him just because you are burning some cars and breaking some windows.
              Judging him in advance is a symptom of a mind being contaminated with useless emotionalism typical for a kindergarten level of logicalness. He is the president, whether you like it or not, and unless he is doing something that Congress and Senate would call illegal---your emotional opinion doesn't count. Remember, you can burn a few more cars, but the dude has all military on his side. At one point that may become a matter of "national security", and then you can write your slogans on the wall of a jail.

              I honestly can't see how all that bitching is working for you, other than vent out some of those private frustrations by projecting them onto the big picture. But, you probably know more about it.

                Judging him in ADVANCE?!! He's seventy-ish years old with a portfolio of business transactions, bankruptsies & a distorted personality that doesn't respect the majority of people on this planet. We've seen how fast he has been with the EO's. He's obviously overly-EAGER to please his fanatical supporters. He knows his alt-right buddies will come at him with guns if he doesn't fulfil his campaign promises - and he doesn't care, because he does fulfil them - with barely any time to learn the ropes, do his own analysis', or get input from experienced people in the offices he is affecting.

                He's proven himself over & over since he took office with his mouth as much as with his signature - and frankly, long before that. Also, Hillary didn't get any 'non-judgment in advance' - so why shouldn't Trump?!

                He has blantantly-LIED to manipulate his supporters & make everyone else angrier with him on so many ocassions. This is just ONE:

                  The same slogans over and over again..."his fanatical supporters...his distorted personality."..and as if this cartoon illustration is supposed to make it all more convincing, somehow reminding of all other "proofs" against Trump.

                  Can you see what's really happening on all these political forums, on social media, and the News? His haters and his supporters kicking the insulting crap back and forth for the whole world to watch, while having a show of their lifetime.

                  And in the meantime, Trump is being a president of your country, regardless of who chooses to get a heart attack, a nervous breakdown, or a stomach ulcer over it.
                   
                  News media are making a big buck, and they don't want the crap to settle down, which would mean their having to get back to those boring reports of traffic accidents and a few homicides to satisfy the public dark passion for negativities.
                  They just can't allow that---business first, truth later. It's easy for them, because to the public anything goes as truth anyway. Those smart professionals just have to keep adding oil on the fire which they started in the first place.

                  Well, every fun comes to an end, and all this is becoming a sort of too predictable, so here I go to replace it with something equally fiction---just more entertaining, like "The Big Bang Theory". Those actors are at least making a good money in their constant comical disagreements, while you guys are getting upset for free.

                    Yes, and condescending non-Americans (and Americans, let's be fair) like you who think you're so smart refuse to acknowledge Trump's words or actions since he started running for office a couple years ago. Just forget everything and let him start over with no push-back to see what he does. Again, we've seen it - the insults, offenses & EO's are not the media meddling with things. He has a twitter account, remember?

                    Don't like cartoons? How about direct quotes. We can only hope that something eventually helps. If not, more protesting. Enjoy!

                    It's very hard to argue with liberal's that live by soundbites, and a misleading headline, that if one reads any given article the headline is walked back. It's easier to ignore, and let them tun around like slow chickens with their heads cut off, bumping into each other. Calling any and all names or making a glib statement or two...

                No doubt in my experience and study Trumps worst side is psychopath and Megalomaniac and his up side is perseverance and stubbornness. Combined those two upsides and downsides,  you got a dangerous flaming Royal asshole.

          The big problem is that Trump had put forward some welcomed rhetoric on the way forward to make America great again. It was sweet music to many US citizen's ears to hear Trump say that he will be endeavoring to place America on top the world once more, because many of them felt that the country had lost its pride of place; however, the way he is going about the affairs has left much to be desired in many people's opinion.
          Trump believes that the kick-ass-approach is the ultimate means by which his intended goals may be achieved; everyone should fall in line to the gospel according to Trump, and if you don't,  you may most likely be dismissed, fired, or even be disrespected.
          He wants a wall to be built between Mexico and the US, which would be beneficial to the US, but not to Mexico, and he wants to command Mexico to pay for it. He wants to arbitrarily cancel free trade agreements without prior consultation. Take a look at the Caribbean Basin Initiative: The US has more to gain from trade with the Caribbean countries than the other way around; think about the numerous US fast food franchises is in these countries and the multiple units of machines technology and equipment and clothing that these countries from the US compared to what they might have to offer as goods and services. He is abolishing the Obama Care program, but he has not introduced a viable alternative, it seems that he just wants to throw out the baby with the bath water because the program was an Obama initiative. He believes that he should arbitrarily renege on agreements between the US and allied countries with any consultation. He should realize that no man or country can stand alone, everyone needs a good friend. There are technocrats in the administration who were employed through their realized level of expertise, but he seems to not to want to give them a voice if they ever oppose his views, therefore, it seems he just do without them and take on all the roles. He has this propensity to take on anyone of not and the media if they don't agree with him on any issue. He should realize that there is not one person in this world who will be liked by everyone so he should stop following up on every opposing view and get on with the nation's business.
          Trump isn't insane; he could not have built his huge, successful business empire. The problem is that he doesn't understand the power of diplomacy, that there is a marked difference when it comes to running one's personal business compared to the running of a country, and spite and malice should be on the main agenda of a country's leader.
          Trump could be a very effective leader if he is able to get rid of some of these undesirable traits, failing to do so he may find it very difficult to unite his country.

Thus megalomania, when he has been given this much power it makes him the most dangerous person on the Planet. The CIA may do something about that. Or as long as he keeps increasing war for Israel that he is 1000% behind, they may keep him alive. Wow! a 1000% behind Israel, that is insane.

              Good intentions? How do you know that?

              And does hiring a bunch of former Goldman Sachs executives amount to good intentions? How does dismantling Dodd-Frank amount to good intentions. The law was written to prevent the kind of economic catastrophe that happens when Wall St. runs unchecked. This point, incidentally, is one Trump himself promoted during his campaign.

                Exactly. Trump hasn't changed his tune since he started running for office a couple years ago; and he continues to view the country as 'just his' while he does a really good job of convincing his supporters that he is on their side. He's doing things that he knows his general GOP supporters want that don't really affect him; while ramping up his own agendas in the background - some of which we can obviously see, and some we probably can't.

                So far, all he has done since he got into office is prove his incompetance over & over again. If he didn't have a twitter account, we probably wouldn't know nearly as much as we do about his incompetance & personality disorder - but, he just keeps on talking.

                I don't understand how his supporters can't see how distorted & manipulative he is, either; but I do understand that desperate people really only see the thing they need or want - whatever that is: jobs, acknowledgment, probably a list of things.

                Well, if they wanted the whole wide world's attention, they have it, now. I hope they put it to good use. Four years isn't nearly as long as you think.

          Wow... more than 60 million Americans fall under that Definition then?

          Trump isn't going anywhere anytime soon, it is amazing how those opposed to him want to drag this on... like all these insane threats to kill, to blow things up, will actually alter who is President, or what he does.

          I suppose that is the ultimate frustration in all this, knowing that Trump is the type of personality that will not be swayed by any amount protesters... he has determined what he wants to do, and is going to do it, no matter how much the opposition carries on.

          There were 65 million people who voted against Obama in 2012... those 65 million people didn't take to the streets, didn't shout that they wanted to blow up the White House, or Assassinate him, or call him Stalin... they went and voted in 2014 and again in 2016, and after the past couple of weeks, if they are anything like me, they are far more motivated now to vote in 2018 than ever before.

          Calling for blowing up the White House, for the President's Assassination, causing riots, assaulting people, lead opposing politicians calling officials White Supremacists, unfit for duty, etc. etc. ... I think you will be surprised at how that strengthens people's support for Trump.  I think you will be in for a big surprise come 2018... when we revisit the 2010 flushing on Congress all over again.

            There are 200 million registered voters, now. Hillary got over 65 million and Trump was under by a few million. Let's round up, that's 130 million voters who came out to vote with them split roughly in half between each candidate. And let's not forget the many 'never-Trumpsters' who were cringing while they voted for him; and all those who voted for him who are turning on him now for a few different reasons.

            That sounds about right... Roughly 1/4 of our country are raging populists. Populism is the new terrorism, LoL! It is basically holding the entire country hostage while we throw all of Trump's supporters into the same category as Trump: manipulative, egotistical cry babies who wouldn't know they were being played if Trump came out and actually told them he was doing so. (And probably worse, they wouldn't admit it if they eventually recognized it.)

        If you took a baker and asked him to apply his techniques to plumbing, I bet you'd think he was insane too.  Not bashing your opinion, but I think calling the man insane is underestimating him, which is what we've been doing, which got us in this mess in the first place, unfortunately.  He's a calculating, egoistic, narcissistic, cruel businessman, but not insane.

          That does sound concerning... until you realize that Obama had far LESS experience than Trump at EVERYTHING OTHER THAN running for political office. 
          That's absolute fact.  He essentially went from smalltime state politician in a relatively non-responsible position, to a Senator, to President, in a few years... few... more than half of which he was running for one office or another.  NO EXECUTIVE experience, NO worldly political experience.

          So I would say that Trump actually has world's more experience than Obama, he has run Businesses for decades, employed tens of thousands of people, traveled the world over and making deals and doing business.

          He's just not used to being a politician... but then, at times I sense he is using even the naïve act to his benefit... under estimate him at your own peril, be you Democrat or Iranian Shah... I don't think a man is as simple as he appears to be, when he is a billionaire and President the country.

            Obama did not go through bankrupty or divorce, Trump had a few. Trump business cheated me like the women he cheats on because I love work most. I had a wife who a psychopath and a Megolomanic so I clearly recognize Trump as a worst one.

            I know, Trump did that stint in a military school that is supposedly the equivelant of serving in the military. And, we all know that he's a multi-bankrupted-yet-still-somehow-rich business man (New Jersey is still paying for a few of his past bankruptsies) who is a master manipulator & chronic liar.

            What did Trump go to college for? I believe Obama had an extensive education in Constitutional Law with the intention of making a career in politics - which, he pursued. Obama had at least SOME political experience (he certainly knew 'how things worked').

            We voted Obama into office basically for the same reasons Trump won this time: he was NEW & different; and was supposed to shake things up and create bipartisan policies as opposed to the 'all us or all you' ones the GOP shoves down our throats every damn time they get into office. Obama gets dinged a LOT for being a GOP compromiser, and technically falls into the conservative-democrat category - for all anyone blusters about him being a raging liberal.

            ...and most of all, While I'm sure he said many things the right-wing found offensive - Obama didn't make it a game to insult and/or offend as many people as he could every time he opened his mouth. He had a good personality & disposition on top of both political & people intelligence, in general - to run that office.

            - PLUS, Obama had impressed enough Democrats by the time he ran for office, that he didn't have to hijack the party like Trump did the GOP. Many people in his own party don't like him & didn't want him in there. Lots of GOPers voted for Trump because they felt that they 'had to'; OR they stayed home. Also, Trump would not be in that office if so many leeberals hadn't voted for him.

            The lines dividing us are SO jagged, LoL!

              That is why your 'side' will lose overwhelmingly in future elections... because riots, assaults, insults, death threats, only make Trump look like the calm, rational, sane one. 

              The MAJORITY doesn't want extremism... doesn't want Socialism, doesn't want to become a Muslim, doesn't want to hate all other races... they just want to get on with their lives, in relative peace, without being intruded on, without being taxed into poverty, without people telling them what they say or do or think or believe is wrong.

                I know the quotes & cartoons are hard for people with your beliefs to look at. Regarding your previous post before this one: So you don't believe any news at all now except the stuff that comes from Trump's mouth or one of his alt-right minions? That's scary. If you're getting all your news in only a few places, especially if it is news directed specifically at a certain kind of  audience - you're seriously limiting the scope of the situation & you are being pandered to. There is strength in diversity regarding more than one thing. Its how you analyze & discern between fake news & semi-facts, LoL! (Also, follow through on some of the 'facts' to see if they hold water - an INVALUABLE tactic!)

                If you actually read this post, you either missed the bipartisan stuff or don't know what the word means. Thanks for reiterating my point: things should not be all one extreme or the other. Simply because me & over half of the country don't appreciate Trump's hate-stirring, close-minded, childish (and often lying) rants doesn't mean that we are extreme-leftists.

                On the contrary, I'm quite in the middle and do not appreciate having the country uber-divided like it is - just divided was plenty. Trump took advantage of it; and protests are the beginning of the solutions. They have to be, its the only weapon we have against people who twist facts to suit their own virtual realities & agendas.

                It has got to be very expensive to take the country from one extreme to the other every 4 to 8 years; plus its unproductive as hell. I've voted on both sides of the isle in the past; and frankly, I'm tired of the back-and-forth while politicians draw lines & REFUSE to work together for the benefit of EVERYONE in the country. We just went through eight years of GOP obstructionism, and now we get to deal with Dem obstructionism. In four years Trump will be replaced (cuz peeps will actually come out and vote) with someone else who will completely change things yet again. Its STUPID!

                Keep trying to force us all into your stunted little box, judging & ignoring us all you want. We'll just get louder. And yeah, sorry - the ones who can't handle the pressure and stand toe to toe against these frustrating political divisions will probably do something extra-silly and/or violent on both sides. (Really, with the person you elected - don't think for a moment that you are in with the peace, love & understanding crowd, LoL!) The volcano has been building for years as many people like to point out; and people do silly & violent stuff every day due to far less destructive forces.

            He was a senator for 7 years, and a lawyer before that...  Meaning he not only had an understanding of the political sphere (that knowledge would have prevented Trump from making the gaffs he's been making if he had it...) but he also has an understanding of how the law works.  President Trump's best recognizable skill is his ability to market himself.  Sure, he can get a following with that, but then what?  As a president, what other knowledge regarding politics does he bring to the table, other than the Reaganomics business model?  Unfortunately, I'd argue his best quality is also his most dangerous one, especially when he hasn't showed empathy for anyone outside his supporters.  He's showing himself to be a "Me-First" plutocrat of a president. 

            Food for Thought:  I also find it concerning he is supposedly such a great businessman and world traveler, as you stated, when his current policies alienating us not only from the tech-business field, but also the world for his stance on immigration.

Before he was elected, so many of his supporters insisted that he would 'become more presidential' after he was elected. He hasn't, and Scott & Mike both do a good job of explaining why he hasn't. For one, he's used a lot of the GOP's own tactics against them to hijack their party. Oh sure, he'll do the things he promised their supporters who voted for him - like, stamp down on immigration & get rid of abortion, etc. But, what the hell ELSE is he doing while these diversions are happening?!! He intentionally divided the GOP, our country & the entire world - and continues to happily do so, with the permission of his minions. Why?!!

Narcissistic personalities create their own realities & it's not based on truth, logic, right or wrong. It's mindboggling the lengths they go to prove their right, smarter, better, etc. I'm still trying to wrap my head around the fact that so many people thought Trump could relate to the average American. He has no idea, nor could care less, of middle class struggles. The only

Narcissists (N's) are really good at twisting everything around & making you question your own reality. They want you to mirror what they think. There's numerous sites that keep track of all the lies told by Trump. When presented w/ evidence of his deceit he won't admit the truth. N's are never wrong. Dealing w/ narcissism in any relationship is a hell I wouldn't wish on anyone. It drains you emotionally, physically, financially, spiritually. They take & take & take until there is nothing but ruin. I've yet to understand how easily & casually they can destroy & discard & not show one bit of concern of the impact.

          You have no clue as to the internal war that was going on in intelligence agencies. There was a coup, and a counter coup.  Trump won, now its time to root out the bad guys (socialist Nazis / globalists), and promote the good guys (patriots / nationalist) in intelligence and give them awards. 

          I don't think intelligence agencies have had a good house cleaning since Jimmy Carter was president.  But, hacks have been put back in intelligence by proceeding presidents.  Trump cannot trust some members of intelligence so they will need to go.  Most of the people in intelligence are trustworthy, honest and smart people, and several of them have helped get Trump elected. They applaud this president because they know he is telling the truth.

                  It is true, and many of his former-supporters who voted for him have turned on him for filling up the swamp with GOP warmongers with alt-right agendas. He was supposed to empty the swamp. He didn't say anything about filling it up with worse politicans. Seems there is a split happening in the wall of T-supporters. I've heard that some have joined the protestors because of it. Nothing confirmed, however. Its not like that is a fact, yet. smile

        Former director of CIA called Trump's speech a “despicable display of self-aggrandizement in front of C.I.A.’s Memorial Wall of Agency heroes” and suggests Trump should be "ashamed of himself" for making it.

        A week ago Trump suggested US intelligence agencies were like nazis: "Intelligence agencies should never have allowed this fake news to "leak" into the public. One last shot at me.Are we living in Nazi Germany?"

          That former CIA director, lets call him "Haji Brennan" is a radical Salafist Islam convert and proud of it. The CIA has been a moving-target of disasters because of hacks like him, and DCI John Brennan is a poster child of one disaster after another.  Brennan created wars and terrorist groups in Libya [Benghazi], Syria, ISIS, Al Qaeda, and Muslim Brotherhood. They are CIA covert operations.

          Brennan is good at self-aggrandizing and coming up with fictional stories to cover his butt and let's not forget covering for BHO / HRC / CIA regarding Benghazi.  He is a LIAR and he should be behind bars because he is anti-human. He should have been charged for lying under oath long ago.

          Most of the people in the CIA and other intelligence are  pro-human, good people who love their country and are happy to have a patriotic President like Trump, who loves us. Trump isn't going to leave anyone behind to die like in Benghazi.

          They loved Trump and what he had to say. They gave him a standing ovation!

            And no offense, but when you say things like the former CIA director is a "radical Salafist Islam convert", you sound kind of insane. I'm not saying you are. Just saying that this really makes it difficult to engage with you on any kind of sensible level.

              All we could see in the video was the backs of heads...people were cheering and applauding. Its not likely Trump brought a crowd and they were the only ones cheering, that would be dumb for anyone to do at such an important meeting with the CIA.  Its illogical to say otherwise.

              Trump mentioned Pence, Flynn, Reince, Mattis, Kelly, and Pompeo. Not sure if Pompeo was there because he hadn't been approved yet, and he certainly should have been as he is Trump's pick as CIA Director.  He was set to be approved. Its embarrassing that he wasn't there, but the Democrats are holding things up.  I'm sure Trump's duty of Secret Service were there, but its not likely they were sitting in the crowd because they were on duty. 

              No offence, Don.  John Brennan is a Salafist Islam convert, he admits it, he proudly did a speech about it.  He made the Haj to Mecca and Medina. “Haji Brennan”. Look it up. I say "radical" because of the freaking wars he created and blood shed, and the creation of al Qaeda and ISIS. 

              I listen to intelligence that have been around for decades, people I trust who have shown great integrity, and have proven themselves to be honest and to give accurate information.  People write books about them.

              We haven't really engaged in any meaningful discourse at any level. So, what is going to change. Would be insane to continue trying?

                Reportedly, sources at the CIA have said "there were about 40 people who’d been invited by the Trump, Mike Pence and Rep Mike Pompeo teams".
                http://www.cbsnews.com/news/sources-say … cia-visit/

                Here's the thing about information on the internet. Someone could create a blog right now, and say that colorfulone is a radical Muslim.

                They could then Tweet the link to that blog, share it via facebook, even create a video on YouTube discussing it, and post the link on a forum like this one. All for free.

                And it could be read, watched, shared and commented on by thousands, even millions of people.

                Does that mean you really are a radical Muslim? Of course not.

                So we've got to make sure we don't accept something as true, just because a lot of people say it on the internet. That can't be our standard for accepting something as true. We've got to consider what evidence we have, where the evidence comes from, how reliable the sources are, what their motivations are etc. before we can determine if something is true.

                And if we don't have any evidence, or don't know where the evidence comes from, or the source is unreliable, or the motives of individuals is questionable, then we have to say we don't know if this is true or not.

                If we don't, and we just accept something because lots of people on the internet say it, then that means people can accept you are a radical Muslim just because lots of people say it. Can you see the problem?

                And if we don't all apply a similar standard of truth, then we can't really talk to to each other, because everyone can just say anything is true, and we'll all just talk past one another.

                So even if you have read or heard that Brennan is a radical Muslim on blogs and comments, and maybe on Twitter and Facebook etc. Unless we can prove something like that is true, with very reliable evidence, we can't just say it's true as if it's a fact.

                I know you are a huge fan of Donald Trump, so try this as a rule of thumb. If someone said Donald Trump is secretly a radical Muslim, what would it take for you to accept it as true? Now apply that standard to the claim about Brennan.

                  Don't just take my word for it, research it...it takes time to do good research and find reliable source, declassified information, etc.  It takes lots of time, but individuals should do that for themselves.  Its something I love doing. 

                  I wouldn't call myself a fan of Donald Trump's.  I feel very blessed to have a President who honors God, and has surrounded himself with many Christians in his cabinet.  I have a spiritual connection to Trump and to the new WH now, haven't sensed that for decades.  God has truly blessed America.

                    You said Brennan is a "radical Salafist Islam convert", but let's ignore the radical part for now to make things nice and easy and look at the claim that Brennan is a Muslim convert.

                    First of all, I'm not prejudiced against Muslims, so I wouldn't have a problem with him being a Muslim anyway, but I'd still be interested to know if it's true.

                    You've obviously researched this, so can you give me a head start on my own research. You said there's a speech where he admitted to being a Muslim convert. That would be a helpful piece of evidence. What speech was it? Do you have a link?

                    You also said there's lots of reliable sources. Can you share one or two? That would be helpful.

                      "I did try and fuck her. She was married. I moved on her like a bitch, but I couldn't get there. And she was married. Then all of a sudden I see her, she's now got the big phony tits and everything. She's totally changed her look. I gotta use some Tic Tacs, just in case I start kissing her. You know I'm automatically attracted to beautiful - I just start kissing them. It's like a magnet. Just kiss. I don't even wait. And when you're a star they let you do it. You can do anything... grab them by the pussy. You can do anything."

          Tell us some more about how unreasonable anti-Trump people are. You should be grateful for peace-loving, protesting pacifists. If Trump had put forth far more effort to uniting this country instead of stirring the hate as often as possible (his NYD tweet is a great example) - we would not be in this place. That proves more that ANYTHING what a bad choice for president he was.

          Constant whining, constanty flat-out lying, constant twisting of the truth to make himself look better to his gullible supporters - he's definitely a narcisist with a particularly YUGE ego.

        I make the suggestion that some of them may have been hired by Trump only because he claimed the same thing about his opponents many times. What goes around comes around.

          I don't recall mentioning "wrong" at all.  Just the mentality and sanity of anyone reasoning that smashing a window will correct Trump being President.  That presents a total lack of connection to reality - one good definition of insanity.

          Trump has not demonstrated such a lack, bearing in mind that intentionally lying is not the same thing at all.  Unless you are prepared to show somehow that Trump actually believes his lies - something more than he said it, or your biased claim based only on a desire to denigrate Trump?

        The question had nothing to do with violent protesters or the left, it had to do with the verifiable lies that Trump has been telling that are refuted by his own statements, in many cases, and hard evidence, in others.

          Do you find that politicians, in general, tell the truth most of the time?  I certainly don't - I find that they lie when they open their mouth - which must mean that ALL legislators are certifiably insane, right?

          I offer you a true example of insanity: anyone reasoning that smashing a Starbucks window will "fix" the Trump situation in the white house is lacking any connection with reality and thus insane.  And you reply once more that liars are insane.  Or just one of them because you don't like the man?

          Or is Trumps "insanity" just gross exaggeration, intended to evoke an emotional response rather than offering any real, factual, information?

            I read this morning that there were 230 protesters arrested on felony charges.  That's up to 10 years in prison plus up to $25,000 fines. 

            I don't feel sorry for people who are paid protesters and rioters, and so easily used as brown-shirts.  The people who paid them don't care if they are going to prison. 

            I heard that nasty Madonna is now under investigation for wanting to blow up the White House.  The Hellywood devil worshipers are insane.  ...  And, the crowd cheered Madonna.  Let that sink in.   
            Pretty insane!   Liberalism is a mental illness.

              Again, that has nothing to do with the question. You can deflect all you want. No president has ever sent his press secretary out to belittle the press and claim his crowd was the biggest ever when it verifiably wasn't. The question isn't even about the lie so much as it is about why in the world he's so worked up over it.

              Selective objectivity is what I see here, not objectivity.   
              Its narrow mindedness vs seeing the bigger picture.

              Look at the big picture like a painting.  God is the artist and He can add or take away whatever He wants with the stroke of a brush. 

              Focus on CNN, MSNBC, etc. and the negative and you will not see anything except the negative that reinforces your own mental conditioning through programming.   Free world?... not if Satan is the god of this world.  Guess who his mouth pieces are in that echo chamber. 

              Its easy to see the big picture unless the god of this world has blinded you.

                  We are not in a 'civil war', I would call it a 'cold civil war'. The opposition wants it to become a civil war.  Notice they only kill or riot in gun free zones?  What if the people they attack start carrying legal weapons to defend themselves, like they carry and use to beat people up? 

                  I believe you are right that many of the elites have gone to their bunkers, that are digitally free zones, but it is known where these bunkers are. There are plenty of them right here in the states. They have been building them for themselves for years, but not for us.

                Color, when specific lies are brought up, people segue into something else.  Supporting a person is one thing.  If the person lies, you should love the person enough to tell him/her the truth. 

                Galatians 1:8
                But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be under a divine curse!


                God is not the author of confusion. 

                Genesis 3:4 And the serpent said to the woman, You shall not surely die:

                Leviticus 19:11 You shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another.

                Psalms 119:163 I hate and abhor lying: but your law do I love.

                Proverbs 12:22 Lying lips are abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly are his delight.

                Proverbs 13:5 A righteous man hates lying: but a wicked man is loathsome, and comes to shame.

                Proverbs 14:5 A faithful witness will not lie: but a false witness will utter lies.

                Proverbs 17:7 Excellent speech becomes not a fool: much less do lying lips a prince.

                Hosea 11:12 Ephraim compasses me about with lies, and the house of Israel with deceit: but Judah yet rules with God, and is faithful with the saints.

                Zephaniah 3:13 The remnant of Israel shall not do iniquity, nor speak lies; neither shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth: for they shall feed and lie down, and none shall make them afraid.

                John 8:44 You are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and stayed not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

                Acts 5:3 But Peter said, Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land?

                Ephesians 4:29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace to the hearers.

                Colossians 3:9 Lie not one to another, seeing that you have put off the old man with his deeds;

                1 Timothy 4:2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

                James 3:1 My brothers, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation.

                Revelation 22:15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and fornicators, and murderers, and idolaters, and whoever loves and makes a lie.

                  Thank you!  You say you pray for Donald Trump, but have you ever thought of forgiving, forgetting and leaving your concerns at the feet of Jesus, and just trust Him and obey?  Love covers a multitude of sins. When we are forgiven by God, He doesn't remember our wrong doing anymore. The Bible says He throws them into the sea of forgetfulness. God forgave Donald Trump. 

                  Its the devil that wants to keep bringing up our sins to try to condemn us.   To me, you sound like a clanging gong going...no love.  I keep expecting more from you because you say you are a Christian.  We are only human, thank God we are forgiven.  It is finishes. 

                  1 Corinthians 13:1
                  If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.

                  I'm calling you higher (believe me I'm speaking to myself now too).  I'd like nothing better than to be able to talk to other Christians openly in these forums, and set better examples of Christ in us.  I wouldn't talk to anyone else like this in the forums, but you have expressed some recognition of the meat of the Word...I'd like to see it reflected too.  I hope you know I love you, with the love of Jesus. 

                  Jesus does not condemn anyone, He forgave us all!

                      "The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness"
                      by a clinical and forensic psychiatrist, Lyle Rossiter

                        colorfuloneposted 5 months ago in reply to this

                        Among Rossiter's observations:

                        Based on strikingly irrational beliefs and emotions, modern liberals relentlessly undermine the most important principles on which our freedoms were founded. Like spoiled, angry children, they rebel against the normal responsibilities of adulthood and demand that a parental government meet their needs from cradle to grave.

                        A social scientist who understands human nature will not dismiss the vital roles of free choice, voluntary cooperation and moral integrity — as liberals do. A political leader who understands human nature will not ignore individual differences in talent, drive, personal appeal and work ethic, and then try to impose economic and social equality on the population — as liberals do. And a legislator who understands human nature will not create an environment of rules which over-regulates and over-taxes the nation's citizens, corrupts their character and reduces them to wards of the state — as liberals do.

                        The roots of liberalism — and its associated madness — can be clearly identified by understanding how children develop from infancy to adulthood and how distorted development produces the irrational beliefs of the liberal mind. When the modern liberal mind whines about imaginary victims, rages against imaginary villains and seeks above all else to run the lives of persons competent to run their own lives, the neurosis of the liberal mind becomes painfully obvious.

                        ADDED:
                        Rossiter said the kind of liberalism being displayed by both Barack Obama and his Democratic primary opponent Hillary Clinton can only be understood as a psychological disorder.

        Sane or not, the fact is many more people in America didn't want him as president than those who did.  77 million registered voters weren't enamored of him enough to cast a vote at all; 63 million voted against him, and only 60 million voted for him (or possibly against Hillary thinking she'd probably win anyway.) Electoral College or not, there are two larger groups who didn't want him.

        But he's the president.  Sane or not, he's got to do the job, and those who put him there need to take responsibility for how he manages to do that and stop blaming everyone else for his flaws.  They are his.  Everybody saw them before the election.  "You broke it.  You own it."

Like "Donald Trump changed Miss Universe rules to allow transgender contestants like Jenna Talackova to compete."  And, one where Trump dated a black supermodel by the name of Kara Young when he was single.  Interesting how many minority groups and individuals support Trump.

            Democracy has been long gone in America. There is so many US wars going on, and most Americans don't care or don't know it's going on.

            Trump was declared war on Syria and Iraq.
            For sure, I watch the recent battles on line. I wonder if the US will cut off all online filming.

            Some reports have US declaring war on Australia, Mexico and China, yet not clear when or settlements are in progress. This has to be some kind of world record for rapid baning and wars.

            I have visited 6 wars zones countries during action, there is no rules, no Justice, just pure insanity and hell.

              Is this what you are talking about?

              "We're engaged in a major counterterrorism operation," he, (John Kerry) told CBS News on Sept. 11. "I think war is the wrong terminology and analogy but the fact is that we are engaged in a very significant global effort to curb terrorist activity... I don't think people need to get into war fever on this. I think they have to view it as a heightened level of counter terrorist activity."

              Kerry said similarly hedgy things during interviews on CNN and ABC.

              By the next day, the Obama administration appeared more comfortable with the word war, yet hardly offered any more clarity. White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told reporters, "The United States is at war with ISIL in the same way we are at war with Al Qaeda and its affiliates."

              The problem is that our traditional definition of "war" is outdated, and so is our imagination of what war means."

        Thankfully, there is the possibility we may not have to deal with the Insane Clown President for too much longer – since it is becoming more apparent by the day (literally) that he is in meltdown mode.  Think 25th Amendment:   

        http://www.alternet.org/election-2016/p … mp-deposed

        *
        He didn’t seem to have a clue that he was being inappropriate (re: his visit to the CIA). He compounded the bad impression by sending out his press secretary Sean Spicer to insist that the crowd for his inauguration was bigger than any in history. When Kellyanne Conway defended Spicer by saying he had simply offered “alternative facts,” members of the media were stunned. It’s not that they assume officials always tell the truth. But they were clearly shocked that the White House would chastise them for reporting something that was obviously and provably correct.
        *
        According to an article in The Washington Post, Trump’s inner circle is overwhelmed by power struggles and internecine battles while the president fulminates over every criticism. The New York Times has reported that his staff is concerned about his “simmering resentment” at what he thinks is unfair press coverage. Politico has reported that aides are trying to minimize his incessant TV viewing, and according to a report by Axios, Trump is running his administration almost entirely in reaction to what he sees in the media. He sounds as if he is unable to handle the stress and is using avoidance mechanisms.
        *
        It’s obvious that Trump has a narcissistic personality, which in itself is not disqualifying. He’s not the first president to have one; nor will he be the last. But his issues seem to run deeper than that. Some observers have suggested that he shows the characteristics of classic psychopathy. And there are plenty of people who see his behavior as blatantly self-destructive.
        *
        And if that doesn’t get the clown booted, certain powers that be are starting the lawsuits necessary to impeach him for breaking Constitutional law by refusing to put his businesses into a blind trust.  Cannot happen soon enough!  Course, then we'll get Pence, the sane in appearance only Christofascist.

          As that is not the intent of the 25th amendment, it seems unlikely it would pass muster in the house and senate (you did know that it requires a 2/3 majority in both?).

          And somehow I don't think he will be impeached for not following the constitution in putting his businesses in a blind trust as the constitution makes no such requirement.

          Perhaps the clowns that come up with these wild ideas should sit back and enjoy the ride?

            The first article does say at the end it is probably extremely unlikely that they would use the 25th amendment to boot him.  His business issues could very quickly become another matter, though, as he is putting this country in danger with his refusal to cut his businesses loose.  HRC was a  slick enough politician to hide her corruption from most of the masses; Donny just can't control himself.  He's a useful tool for some of the GOP right now - the minute he's not (or completely flips out) it will be amazing how fast he will be out.

            One way or another he's a slow motion train wreck.  It's actually rather comical that, just like the DNC couldn't admit HRC was tearing the Democrats apart , the GOP is so self absorbed with getting what they want that they can't see the damage he is doing to their party - which is just fine!

                Ok, seriously, you're kidding, right?!  That is setting the bar awfully low.  Personally, I'd rather have a politician I feel I can trust, has some ethics and is working for the people - like Sanders, even though I don't wholly trust him either.  Don't think this country will ever truly 'heal' (such an obnoxious word) until we demand ALL sides stop the corruption.

                  There hasn't been a politician in this country that I felt I could trust since Reagan, when I was younger and more naive.  That doesn't seem to be an option either - I'll have to stand by the statement I'd rather have one that doesn't understand how to hide their corruption rather than one that does.

                    But, Wilderness, that's not what people are asking him to do.   What he should do is transfer his assets to a blind trust.  That means his businesses continue just as they are, he doesn't lose any money, it's just that he isn't involved in the running of those businesses.   Instead, he has to put a board of directors in place who are independent and who are not answerable to him. 

                    Before the election, Trump promised to transfer his business into the hands of his family - which was an inadequate safeguard for obvious reasons.  Now he's not even going to do that.

                    You say you don't trust politicians.  Neither do I.  That's why he shouldn't be allowed to keep direct control of his business empire, because he'll exploit it.  I'd like to see that opportunity taken away from him.

                      Actually, yes it is.  From the link posted by Gemini:

                      "The only way to eliminate the conflicts—sell the company, divvy up the proceeds"

                      "Moreover, such a trust would be anything but blind: If Trump Tower Moscow goes under construction, Trump will see it while in Russia and know that his kids are making millions of dollars from it."

                      Ridiculous to the point of insanity.

                      I'd like to see a trust as well, but Trumps businesses are not some low key outfit hiding in the foothills of Tennessee.  It is all very high profile, and with his name plastered everywhere.  The article is correct in that sense; it can't be hidden from him.  But as important as anything else is that he is not required to make any changes.  We can hope that that will be changed before the next president, but for now it is what it is and to insist that it is unconstitutional or illegal any other way is just not true.  We elected a President under a certain legal standard and cannot suddenly change it because we've decided we don't like it any more.

Personally, I hate it and really wish people would start to allow themselves to see all sides beyond their own. I know, I'm a ridiculous optimist. But, these arguments aren't about proving who is right or wrong, its about getting close-minded people to open their brains just a little bit beyond their own little world.

              I am a world class strategist in my pass sports and arts. I know, as predicted years ago America democracy is finished. Trump's strategy from his pass and what is unfolding now. Is to create a civil wars and world war 3.

              Iran just a tested a nuke missile and US citizens a huge no no. US already seriously fighting 6 countries at the same time and a long list of other declare wars not fully engaged yet. My deepest desire to survive and with my family.  Bolivia is my new home, still migrations bugs to work out. Sorry I''m not allowiing to be hypnotized by Zionist Trump's suckers payoff. Meaning America will never be able to keep up with Trump's scam after scam until everything is blown up.

              I can't take politics or Religious seriously or the fairytales they aim for or life too seriously. My payoff is a few will get the sense to move to the southern hemisphere and I get some material for stand-up comedy. I've saved a few people's lives in the pass, and love to save just one more for the sake of happiness.

        Its really not funny. Those who are not respecting Trump, although we saw NO ONE ELSE fit enough to be president … ! Now we have him and you can't give him a chance. He needs our hope and our prayers. He needs to be encouraged to do the best thing for the American people who he really does want to help.  Gandhi said to believe a man. We have to believe he wants to help and not hinder the USA. Positivity is our only hope. Support him. He is trying to protect us. If he makes mistakes, he will learn. We elected him, we have to make the best of it.

          We are making the best of it through protesting. I know it looks like we 'don't give him a chance' - but, there is a reason why so many people in his own party could not vote for him. He has a past that is much worse than Hillary's or pretty much any other politician. If he was an honest successful businessman, things would be different; but everything he is doing points to manipulating his supporters in order to both feed his gargantuan ego & expand his own empire. He's given us absolutely no reason at all yet to believe otherwise; and he complains about being picked on when you poke him for answers.

          Believe it or not, I do pray for Trump. I'm not a religious person at all, but Jesus had some pretty good advice: Matthew 5 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? And if you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others?"

          However, just because I have prayed for him - doesn't mean that I'm going to bury my own conscious and hand my support over to him - until he figures out that provoking people to be vindictive & hateful against each other is profoundly uncool & not the disposition of an acceptable POTUS.

            For one , How shallow the left explains their hatred of all things "right " , IF Trumps  past were so much worse than Hillary's " then it wouldn't have been the left who defended every criminal act Hillary ever performed in the past .  And there are dozens !
            Two , If You are" not a religious person " and yet you do pray for America's progress , that shows an utter hypocrisy  to begin with . Who DO you pray to , Hillary?
            Three , ALMOST ALL OF THE "vindictive and hatful  " acts come from the left these days in case you hadn't noticed .

            In general , It's pretty amazing that the left doesn't taste its own hatred and yet so easily accuses the right of it .

              Hillary commuted no "criminal" acts while Trump has, such as Fraud.

              Do I HATE Trump, probably not ... but I should because I hate ALL bullies.  I am, however, very afraid of him destroying what America stands for, if not America directly.

              "ALMOST ALL OF THE "vindictive and hatful  " acts come from the left these days" - the words, 'these days' being the keywords.

              Who voted in Trump because you were impressed by his mouth being such an *ss to people and utterly non-PC? This nation has always been divided and it always will be. But intentionally manipulating people to cause the chasm to be as deep & wide as possible to create this mess is something only one of Trump's fans could, would & HAVE condoned, encouraged & participated in. And you've all had lots of fun & celebrations over it like a bunch of kids who just set off a smoke bomb in the teacher's lounge.

              You reap what you sow.

              Its really not Okay to give Trump a free pass on his past - and yeah, it is a great deal more shadier (and far more criminal) than Hillary's. Its just that he wasn't a politician before; and somehow that translated to you that it doesn't matter.

              I pray to God/The Universe/The One/Source, etc. You don't have to be a religious person to believe in the power of God & Prayer. Ever heard of Spirituality? Read my top spotlight hub if that concept is confusing to you.

            Hate is never good, it is like attempted murder.

            Protest is better than a full scale violence revolution. But a revengeful violence revolution is unavoidable in the near future. If you had a peaceful demonstration I would come to that. Don't like bullies myself more than anything, by hating them like with Trump. Means they have won, Nooobody can promote hate and violences better than Trump.

        Trump and his antics are uncannily similar to those of Hitler as he rose to power. Then the general population of Germany hid their heads in the sand and look what happened. Please let's not act like the Germans and ignore the reality of what his administration is doing. Let's not be part of history repeating itself.

          Exactly.
          When hitler first gained power there was a tendancy to see him as just a curious funny fellow. In the background he surrounded himself with sycophants and undertook secret crazy activities.
          Donald is already drunk with power. It takes a much better man to resist this power. Better men than "sad" Donald have succumbed to the corruption of power. There is evidence to show he was very corrupt prior to his Russian propelled ascension. He has become a chronic megalomaniac.
          This is all very hitlerian.
          Like hitler sad Donald is obviously using cocaine to get through tough times like the debates the inauguration and trying to satisfy Melania. His porn star days are over so medicinal and illegal drug use is through the roof by now.
          Let's face it he's a mess.
          Unlike hitler he is 70. The pressure the drugs and soon hundreds of court cases will destroy him fairly quickly. I noticed he was already losing enthusiasm in his last tv appearances. The cocaine use will now increase.

        Insanity is where ever you find it. I mean, wasn't it insanity that led George W. Bush to lie to us all about Iraqs non-existant weapons of mass destruction, ultimately killing over 1 million Iraqi non-combatant citizens? Wasn't it insane that before invading Afghanistan there was ZERO heroine coming out of that country and after the invasion it supplied 70% of the WORLDS heroine trade? Wasn't it insane for Barak Obama to make having health insurance law, and fining those who couldn't afford it $600 a year and up, increasing every year? And isn't it crazy that autism has risen to epidemic proportions since mandatory vaccinations yet no one will admit the connection? And the most insane thing of all, U.S. citizens, in 2016, didn't know that their votes would not elect the president in November!  If President Trump is insane he's just the latest in a long line of insane presidents that govern a country of insane people.

          George Bush - not insane
          Heroin - non-sequitur
          Obama - not insane
          Autism - non-sequitur (and also incorrect)
          Election - non-sequitur (and wrong)
          Trump - not insane, just mentally ill.
