Donald Trump reached a new low, even for him, yesterday when he was asked a question about how he’s negligently gotten Americans killed and he responded with “A lot of people love me.” As Trump’s psychological collapse continues to worsen, he’s more intent than ever at showing us just how far gone he is.
This morning Donald Trump announced on Twitter that Hillary Clinton is a “witch.” Yep, he’s that far gone. He also announced that “I’m really good.” Then he said this: “Watched the first 5 minutes of poorly rated Morning Psycho on MSDNC just to see if he is as ‘nuts’ as people are saying. He’s worse. Such hatred and contempt! I used to do his show all the time before the 2016 election, then cut him off. Wasn’t worth the effort, his mind is shot!”
These aren’t the words or thoughts of a mentally competent person. Donald Trump has now fully let go of whatever tentative strands of psychological coherence he might have been tenuously holding onto. Maybe his sinking election prospects have broken him. Perhaps he’s finally been pushed fully over the edge by the prospect of losing Kim Jong Un, his only friend in the world. You’d have to ask Trump what’s pushed him so far over the edge today. But he’s too far gone to give you a coherent answer on that.
