Is Donald Losing It Before Our Very Eyes?

    Is the leader of the free world cognitively declining before our very eyes? Some very concerned psychologists and mental health experts are beginning to publicly suggest he is and that should be a cause of great concern for all of us.

    From referring to the CEO of America's richest company as Tim "Apple" (he did it to save time!) to repeatedly saying "oranges" when he obviously meant to say "origins" during a recent speech to calling Venezuela a "company," Donald appears to be losing his cognitive control in front of us, in real time, and there's next to nothing any of us can do about it.

    Try to decipher this quote about wind energy that is not edited in any way:

    Hillary wanted to put up wind. Wind. If you ? if you have a windmill anywhere near your house, congratulations: Your house just went down 75 percent in value. And they say the noise causes cancer. You tell me that one, OK? “Rrrrr, rrrrr” ? you know the thing that makes the ? it’s so noisy. And of course it’s like a graveyard for birds. If you love birds, you’d never want to walk under a windmill because it’s a very sad, sad sight. It’s like a cemetery. We put a little, we put a little statute for the poor birds. It’s true. You know in California, if you shoot a bald eagle, they put you in jail for five years. And yet the windmills wipe ’em all out. It’s true. They wipe ’em out. It’s terrible. And I told the other day at CPAC. Great people at CPAC. We had an incredible thing. I had nothing to do. It was early on a Saturday morning. I had just gotten back from dealing with Kim Jong Un. We had a walk. He wasn’t ready for a deal but that’s OK because we get along great. He wasn’t ready. I told him, you’re not ready for a deal. That’s the first time anybody has ever told him that and left. It never happened to him before. Nobody’s ever left. But I said you’re not ready for a deal, but we’ll make a deal. We have a good relationship. We have a good relationship. But I told a story about, at CPAC. The woman, she wants to watch television. And she says to her husband, “Is the wind blowing? I’d love to watch a show tonight, darling. The wind hasn’t blown for three days. I can’t watch television, darling. Darling, please tell the wind to blow.” No, wind’s not so good. And you know, you have no idea how expensive it is to make those things. They’re all made in China and Germany, but the way, just in case you’re ? we don’t make ’em here, essentially. We don’t make ’em here. And by the way, the carbon, and all those things flying up in the air, you know the carbon footprint? President Obama used to talk about the carbon footprint, and then he’d hop on Air Force One, a big 747 with very old engines, and he’d fly to Hawaii to play a round of golf. You tell me, the carbon footprint.

    This came out of the mouth of someone who has thousands of nuclear weapons at their disposal. If that doesn't scare the living bejesus out of you then I don't know what will.

    I recall other incoherent statements like that. So when I searched the internet with, "Trump incoherent statement" I got 12 pages of various incoherent rambling speeches and statements he made going back as far as 2015. Try "Trump gibberish" and you get something similar. This has become the norm and we are numb to it. Saturday Night Live will just use Trump's own words exactly to get a laugh.

    However, in browsing some of those statements made then versus the incoherent above, then yes it appears Trump is getting worse. Some people posit that when he is under stress he kind of goes off on these crazy statements. I don't know. But I do wonder about his supporters that they listen and cheer him as he rambles on at his rallies with him speaking gibberish all over the place.

    All very interesting, but what is this stupid country doing about it? Answer: "re-elect" him. And please give him an "free" course on how "modern electricity" is generated with very quit Windmills who's blades are high tech and turn very slowly and don't kill any birds as well neither are built near housing. That is what you get if Daddy gives you all the "money" and "buys" your school certificate. What school did he get to, to lean to lie EVERY day.

    I always thought the USA had its act together; I guess I'm badly mistaken.

    "They’re all made in China and Germany" Really???

    Did Trump make a deal to let China annex Pensacola?? I see at least once a week the generator part of a windmill on a huge tractor trailer with escort vehicles making its way to port of Pensacola.

    Trump sometimes appears manic, and when he is like that, his mind is a bit like an extremely bad Robin Williams (who was also manic); his mind is racing, jump around from topics as one thought triggers 10 new thoughts that have little connection to each other.

    The effects of LSD are unpredictable. Usually, the first effects of the drug are felt 30 to 90 minutes after taking it. The user may experience extreme changes in mood, feel several different emotions at once, or swing rapidly from one emotion to another. If taken in large enough doses, the drug produces delusions and visual hallucinations. The physical effects include dilated pupils; higher body temperature and sweating; nausea and loss of appetite; increased blood sugar, heart rate and

    and of course he'd blame it on brown people

    In another indication that Trump is becoming more delusional, the DC Tribune this morning posted an article that he wanted to publish his own memoir in order to expose his perceived enemies. Since no publishing company in their right mind would touch it, it will likely remain a pipe dream for him for a long, long time.

    And the hits keep on coming ...

    This morning, he suddenly pulled his nominee for ICE director, Ron Vitiello:
