Trump’s Presidency: A Thunderous WAKE UP Call For All Americans

This Trump presidency should generate a thunderous wake-up call for all Americans who truly love their country and do not want to see it continue on this twisted path.
 Michael Payne
As we witness the Trump presidency continue to rapidly accelerate down the wrong road, here’s a message to send out all across America:  Never, ever, make this same kind of monumental mistake again; allowing someone like the current totally incompetent, irrational occupant of the White House to assume this degree of power.
Those many Trump loyalists, the main reason why he was elected as president, need to be the first ones to wake up and realize the grave mistake they made. Perhaps they had the best intentions and desperately wanted meaningful change. However, the reality of the situation is that they were extremely naïve and were easily duped into believing in someone who never intended to follow through on his promises.
While it’s still early in his presidency there are no signs of any kind that he intends to actually “drain the Washington swamp” or that he will take steps to create millions of new jobs; that he has any viable plan to replace Obamacare with a more effective healthcare system or one for repairing this nation’s deteriorating national infrastructure.
A really competent leader would have, upon taking office, created a list of no more than five key priorities that he and his advisers would immediately start working on such as those referred to above. A leader who would be right in the middle of the action, holding intensive meetings, bringing in experts on key issues, motivating participants, monitoring progress, all intended to address solve this country’s many festering problems.
Well, he hasn’t even come close to that. He, quite obviously, has totally different objectives. He has completely failed to get the members of his own party to quickly repeal Obamacare because he, instead of using leadership and political diplomacy, attempted to try to ram the legislation through Congress. It was a colossal failure....
Well, his continued often bizarre and reckless behavior, together with associated actions, have not gone unnoticed by a rapidly increasing number of high-level psychiatrists who are now sounding the alarms about his mental state.
These professionals are fully aware of what is called the Goldwater Rule, a psychiatrists’ code of ethics which states that it is unethical for psychiatrists to give a professional opinion about public figures they have not examined in person. Ordinarily they follow that code to a T but in this case they have clearly stated that when they feel that the safety and security of the nation and, possibly the world, is at stake, they cannot and will not remain silent.
Here’s what some of the top psychiatrists in that profession are saying about his mental condition:
  • Here’s an article reporting on the recent Yale medical school conference on Trump’s mental state.
  • Also check out this article from Business Insider entitled, “37 mental health experts sign a letter warning of Trump’s ‘grave emotional instability.”
Their general conclusion: “We believe that the grave emotional instability indicated by Mr. Trump’s speech and actions makes him incapable of serving safely as president. Mr. Trump’s speech and actions demonstrate an inability to tolerate views different from his own, leading to rage reactions. His words and behavior suggest a profound inability to empathize. Individuals with these traits distort reality to suit their psychological state, attacking facts and those who convey them (journalists, scientists).
