The madness of King Donald: is Trump really losing his mind?



hello I'm yonder nod2 at the South China Morning Post taking crazy things seriously is a serious waste of time Japanese author Haruki Murakami wrote in Kafka on the shore is that going to be the philosophy of American voters when they elect US President Donald Trump to a second term in the White House next year the latest Rasmussen survey puts his approval rating at a robust 51% reflecting how all the escalating clarion calls for some sort of intervention and professional assessment of trumps mental health mean absolutely nothing to his fanatical support base and yet it's easy to give his detractors the benefit of the doubt when they raise the alarm over signs of cognitive disorder pre dementia and even sheer delirium whether the president is sending out incoherent tweets ranting and raging at media briefings or taking off on unintelligible tangents in his rambling speeches at public rallies it can be inane sometimes such as when he substituted Apple CEO Tim Cook's surname with the name of his company he first tried to walk it back with a cringe-worthy explanation that he had actually said Tim Cook Apple with a cook pot being pronounced quietly then tweeted an even more fatuous clarification that he had quickly referred to Tim Plus Apple as Tim slash Apple as an easy way to save time in words there's no similar algebraic formula to explain his struggle to say the word origin during a media session at the Oval Office when he questioned the Russia collusion investigation I hope they now go and take a look at the oranges the oranges of the investigation he said the official White House transcript letter identified the word as oranges whatever that might mean at the same session while sitting next to NATO's Secretary General a Trump declared my father is German was German born in a very wonderful place in Germany it's not the first time Trump has made up a story about the oranges of his father who was actually born in New York but his pawn Shawn for pathological lying is now under the microscope in the context of his sanity according to the last count by the Washington Post which runs a handy fact-checking database on Trump he's made nine thousand four hundred and fifty one false or misleading claims in 801 days over the past 200 days he has averaged 22 a day which is four times higher than the rate recorded during his first year in office the is obviously getting worse as Tony Schwartz the author who goes throughout Trump's biography the art of the deal puts it the fact that most of us are constrained by the truth gives Trump a strange advantage through his complete disregard for it there's no doubt it works with his voters who just don't care if he's lying the other thing about lying is that it goes hand in hand with cheating and if veteran American sports writer Rick Riley his new book commander-in-chief how golf explains Trump is anything to go by Trump cheats like a mafia accountant among many eye-catching anecdotes he cites caddies at a New York Golf Club nicknaming Trump calais after the Brazilian soccer legend because of the president's habit of kicking his ball out of the rough and up the fairway to win at all costs sounds creare but jokes and ridicule aside American mental health experts have been getting increasingly vocal about the possibility of Trump beyond the idiosyncratic grandpa narrative actually losing his mind they're calling for a full clinical examination to ensure the man occupying the most powerful office on the planet hasn't gone off his rocker it doesn't reassure them either that he often feels compelled without prompting or provocation to talk about how very normal he is Trump regularly boasts about being like very smart and a very stable genius but as they say there's also a very fine line between genius and madness has he erased it thanks for watching you

  6. I think Trump is right to fight against mainstream media with fake news. All the allegations of mental health are soundless. You can say whatever you want to say when you hate Trump.

  7. What we all want to know is Donald Trump's' position on Julian Assange? Will President Trump pardon Assange of all alleged crimes against the US and protect Assange, democracy and freedom of speech from the machinations of the Deep State and Killary or will he fall in line and do the bidding of Wall Street and throw Assange to the wolves?

  8. So making the economy great is crazy? This man should be ashamed of himself. He's just a parrot of the leftist media. Nothing he said was anything new.
    President Trump has been very successful in complicated stuff and they always either overlooked and downplayed that fact to fit their agenda. Pathetic

  9. Keep using the post for your sources! All left wing people and prints that you use are a joke!! We who live here ( that would exclude YOU) have to look deeper than any bias sources to get the truth! I suggest you do the same!!

  10. FALSE! Trump approval rating has never been higher than 46%. He lost the popular vote in America and only won through the electoral college. THIS IS PRO DICTATOR PROPAGANDA!!

  11. All politicians and dogs are liars.
    I don't see other candidates are better.

    Yes, Trump is also a 大炮王. It's his style.
