    Trump Biographer Says 'No Authenticity' in His Response to Shootings

    August 08, 2019 Trump Says He’s ‘Concerned About The Rise’ Of Hate Groups, ‘Whether It’s Antifa Or Any Other’ Donald Trump's biographer
    has said that the response of the president to the mass shootings in
    El Paso and Dayton illustrates the extent to which he is mentally ill
    and lacking in empathy. David Cay Johnston is a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist who knew Trump for nearly three decades and whose book The
    Making Of Donald Trump became a bestseller. In a radio interview with
    SiriusXM, he

    Well I personally avoid using the term "nuts" because it sounds more like an insult to people who have mental health issues or a mental illness. And with the
    current sitting President, it's easy enough for me to find other ways to insult

    him. xD

    It seems like it's common though for people, including myself, to "diagnose" people, from a distance, as having mental health issues. imo, it's not very productive and leads to a slippery slope when people diagnose other people's problems (physical or mental) when ideally, in a perfect world, it could be done
    effectively by health care professionals (though I often don't have much faith in the
    medical profession or mental health care system, tbh).

    As for whether or not having mental health issues would be an impeachable offense,
    it's probably a matter of whether or not a president is capable of performing his
    duties. I don't really see he's doing a very good job, but I guess not enough congress-people feel he's doing such a bad job that he should be impeached. I see
    the current prez as being a joke, and worry about the effect it will have on the
    younger generation (particularly my nephews and nieces), how they'll view the US
    Government and democracy as they grow up. It's one thing to be negative about politicians and government, negativity and mistrust which has grown exponentially
    since the JFK assassination, Vietnam, and Watergate. But to have a president like
    the one now really just sends a bad message, imo. But who knows.. I've been wrong
    before. xD

    When I say I see him as a joke, it's mostly the blatant lies. Saying one thing one
    day then reversing himself the next, then again and again. It's like .. if you have a policy, of belief, then stick with it. It's ok to change your mind sometime, but when you frequently change what you state to believe, you can't be
    taken seriously, and therefore not worth listening to. Which is not the sign of
    a
    good leader, a leader that will be respected, especially during times of conflict
    when strong leadership is needed most, and lives depend on it.

    As for people having mental health issues, even if I don't like someone, I try to
    remember to have compassion. As my father committed suicide when I was 8, and I

    first sought treatment for my issues when I was 19, back in '92. It would be very
    hypocritical for me to say someone is "nuts" as an insult, for I am quite nuts!
    lol

    Hello Andrew,

    Is being nuts an impeachable offense? You tell me -

    Trump Biographer Says 'No Authenticity' in His Response to Shootings

    Hate Groups, Whether It s Antifa Or Any Other Donald Trump's
    biographer has said that the response of the president to the mass


    Well I personally avoid using the term "nuts" because it sounds more like
    an
    insult to people who have mental health issues or a mental illness. And with the current sitting President, it's easy enough for me to find other ways to insult him. xD

    Since the president is a public figure, he is fair game to be called
    whatever folks want to call him. No matter how insulting that may be.
    While most politicians understand this, and do not let such insults
    bother them, this one takes it to heart whatever name(s) he is called.
    And as a result can be vindictive. Very vindictive. I mean, we know
    what he did with James Comey, who is now the former director of the
    FBI. And we know what he did with Jeff Sessions, who is now the
    former Attorney General. And we know what he is planning to do with
    Hillary Clinton, who has also called him a bunch of names that have
    never been repeated ...

    It seems like it's common though for people, including myself, to
    "diagnose"
    people, from a distance, as having mental health issues.

    The president's biographer claims he is mentally ill. A nice way
    of saying he is nutty as a fruitcake.

    imo, it's not very productive and leads to a slippery slope when people diagnose other people's problems (physical or mental) when ideally, in a perfect world, it could be done effectively by health care professionals (though I often don't have much faith in the
    medical profession or mental health care system, tbh).

    Who is the most important person among the president's advisors?
    Not any of his cabinet members. Not his attorney general. Not his
    FBI director. Not even his chief of staff. Or his children. Or
    his wife, girlfriend, or significant other. The most important
    person is the president's shrink. That is who knows the president
    best. His shrink knows exactly what makes him tick, and what
    buttons to push to make him do (or not do) whatever is wanted.

    Who does the president confide in? Who is his most trusted
    advisor? Who is his one and only friend?

    As for whether or not having mental health issues would be an impeachable offense, it's probably a matter of whether or not a president is capable
    of
    performing his duties.

    And what, pray tell, are his duties? He did take an oath of office,
    detailing what he must do. In order to faithfully execute his oath of
    office, he is obligated to do exactly that.

    I don't really see he's doing a very good job, but I guess not enough congress-people feel he's doing such a bad job that he should be
    impeached.

    The Congress gets to decide what are "high crimes and misdemeanors" -
    which may not be the same as what anybody else may think. For example, President Andrew Johnson was impeached because the Congress held he
    was a racist and a bigot. Even though the Senate acquitted him, by
    one vote, he was still branded a racist and bigot. Another example
    was President Bill Clinton being impeached because he got a blowjob
    from a White House intern. The Senate also acquitted him, thanks
    to a handful of jealous Senators.

    I see the current prez as being a joke, and worry about the effect it will have on the younger generation (particularly my nephews and nieces), how they'll view the US Government and democracy as they grow up.

    Not to worry. He will be quickly forgotten once the next president
    is sworn in.

    It's one thing to be negative about politicians and government, negativity and mistrust which has grown exponentially since the JFK assassination, Vietnam, and Watergate. But to have a president like
    the one now really just sends a bad message, imo. But who knows.. I've
    been
    wrong before. xD

    The current occupant of the White House makes GWB look good.
    But I could still do without his mangling of the English language.

    When I say I see him as a joke, it's mostly the blatant lies. Saying one thing one day then reversing himself the next, then again and again.

    Cajuns have a word describing such people as "fou-fou". People who
    do not know any better. Foolish people. We know they are full of
    beans, but never say anything because we already know who and what
    they are. So we just let them talk, and talk, and talk ...

    It's like .. if you have a policy, of belief, then stick with it. It's ok
    to
    change your mind sometime, but when you frequently change what you state
    to
    believe, you can't be taken seriously, and therefore not worth listening to. Which is not the sign of a good leader, a leader that will be respected, especially during times of conflict
    when strong leadership is needed most, and lives depend on it.

    Have you ever heard Trump admit he was wrong? About anything?
    Regardless of how many times he changes his own position, he is
    never wrong. And he never apologizes for any of his mistakes,
    as he is perfect. But that's okay. We all laugh at him. He
    is the one who is fou-fou. Not the foolish mob ...

    As for people having mental health issues, even if I don't like someone, I try to remember to have compassion. As my father committed suicide when I was 8, and I first sought treatment for my issues when I was 19, back in '92. It would be very hypocritical for me to say someone is "nuts" as an insult, for I am quite nuts! lol

    I do not envy the president. He asked for the gig. And we the
    people hired him to do the job he asked for. So it is his own darn
    fault, and has nobody else to blame.

    Now you tell me. Is that something any sane person would do?

    And to think, after he got the gig, he told us he would do it for free.
