Bottomline: He is first and foremost a narcissist. It's all about him:
The New York Times editorial board is going after President Trump, claiming that he has shown he "speaks and acts in the interests of himself."
In an op-ed published Tuesday, the editorial board criticized Trump's decision to pardon former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Arizona.
The editors initially cite comments from Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.
When asked during an interview Sunday about the president's values and response to the racially charged violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., Tillerson said Trump "speaks for himself."
"Coming from the man the president picked to represent the nation around the world, it was a stunning admission, devastating in its simplicity and painful in its accuracy," the editorial board wrote.
"Mr. Trump, we are reminded every day in ways we would not have imagined the day before, speaks and acts in the interests of himself and no one else."
Finally we have a movement specifically created to remove Trump from office. I've been advocating this for a long time. Hopefully they stay in Washington until he's forced to evacuate the White House. We can't wait on the politicians. It's time the people took action. Join the discussion for details.
But we'll take a resignation or the #25thAmendment. Either way he's gone.
Most people in a new survey said the best response to Donald Trump’s actions while president would be to impeach him or otherwise remove him from office.
Harvard University’s Center for American Political Studies and research marketing firm Harris Insights and Analytics this week published the results of their monthly national poll, in which respondents were given three choices for how to deal with the president: 43 percent said he should be impeached or otherwise removed from office, while 42 percent said nothing should be done and 12 percent said he should be censured by Congress.
There is no question that the president has been compromised by the Russians. Questions is when will we learn the full truth--maybe never. Nevertheless, we know enough to prove Trump committed treason:
We have just learned moments ago that there allegedly are in fact tapes which exist, that prove President Trump has committed some form of Treason. According to Congressman Alan Grayson’s wife, Dr. Dena Grayson (also a former candidate for Congress herself), two separate “reliable” sources have informed her that evidence exists on tapes, that the mainstream media has been holding off on sharing with the public.
According to Irish bookmaker Paddy Power, large sums have begun to be placed on Trump calling it quits, taking the odds into evens, the equivalent of 50 percent. While still not as strong as the odds on Trump being impeached, which currently stand at 4/6, or 60 percent, it still represents a significant shift. A similar move was also witnessed at leading British bookmaker Ladbrokes, which took its odds in from 11/10 to evens.
Trump is so incompetent and corrupt that he won't even look out for the people who are entrusted protecting his life:
The Secret Service can no longer pay hundreds of agents it needs to carry out an expanded protective mission – in large part due to the sheer size of President Trump's family and efforts necessary to secure their multiple residences up and down the East Coast.
Secret Service Director Randolph "Tex'' Alles, in an interview with USA TODAY, said more than 1,000 agents have already hit the federally mandated caps for salary and overtime allowances that were meant to last the entire year.
This is why we must act now to remove this monster from office:
The man in the White House is reckless and unmanageable, a danger to the Constitution, a threat to our democratic institutions.
Last week some of his worst qualities were on display: his moral vacuity and his disregard for the truth, as well as his stubborn resistance to sensible advice. As ever, he lashed out at imaginary enemies and scapegoated others for his own failings. Most important, his reluctance to offer a simple and decisive condemnation of racism and Nazism astounded and appalled observers around the world.
Trump's top advisers are reportedly 'despondent and numb' and unsure how his presidency will recover after Charlottesville
Apparently no one can control this psycho:
Numerous reports have emerged depicting a despondent White House, as many top advisers have expressed frustration with Trump's continued meltdowns.
The New York Times reported that Trump's top advisers were "stunned, despondent and numb," and that some were "unable to see how Mr. Trump's presidency would recover" and "expressed doubts about his capacity to do the job."
Donald Trump can't do anything right. He's completely out of his element. He's being saved by an economy that hasn't tanked. That will falter as well. Business does not like instability. And Trump is unstable:
President Trump, with at least two years of full Republican control of government at the national and state levels, has systematically damaged or destroyed his relationship with — well, almost every group or individual essential to success.
This has left him on an island inhabited by a shrinking band of true-believer voters, who can help win an election, but can do nothing to help him exploit the power he's wasting
