Donald Trump may have found a way to do the impossible. The mentally unstable traitor has had so many unhinged meltdowns and psychotic moments, we were beginning to wonder if he could ever top himself by sinking to a new low. Just now, Trump managed to find a way to pull it off, in a tweet that sounds – in all seriousness – like it came directly from a mental patient in a rubber room.
Shortly before midnight eastern time, Donald Trump posted this deranged and bloodthirsty rant, in all capital letters, on Twitter: “To Iranian President Rouhani: NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE. WE ARE NO LONGER A COUNTRY THAT WILL STAND FOR YOUR DEMENTED WORDS OF VIOLENCE & DEATH. BE CAUTIOUS!” Wait, what?
This tweet is so preposterous, so dangerous, so irresponsible, and so clearly coming from a mentally deranged person who belongs in physical restraints, we honestly thought initially that it had come from a parody account. But alas, this really did come from Donald Trump’s official verified Twitter account. Reaction to his tweet was swift, negative, and head-shaking in nature. The build-up to Trump’s mental breakdown came when Secretary of State Mike Pompeo gave an inappropriate speech designed to try to cause tensions with Iran, and in response Iranian President Rouhani cautioned Trump about such posturing, while also stating that he would prefer to go the route of peace.
It’s not difficult to figure out that Donald Trump and Mike Pompeo have timed their new out-of-nowhere hostility toward Iran in the hope of distracting America from Trump’s numerous and worsening criminal scandals – including his treason scandal. But Trump isn’t within a million miles of having enough political muscle to get away with starting a war right now; he’d be out on his ass by morning. That said, Trump’s utterly psychotic tweet tonight about “violence and death” is enough to make clear that Trump is indeed suffering some kind of psychotic break. No one can fake it this convincingly.
