What if Mueller catches Trump — and it isn't enough?

If this Congress refuses to stand up for justice, we need to elect a Congress that will.

By EUGENE ROBINSON | 7:34PM EST — Thursday, December 07, 2017

WE NEED to prepare for the eventuality that the Mueller probe catches President Trump, family members and associates red-handed — and Republicans in Congress refuse to do anything about it.

This is beginning to look like a possible or even probable outcome. With a cravenness matched only by its arrogance, the GOP is Trump's party now. It no longer has any claim to be Lincoln's.

Witness the cowardly about-face on the subject of Roy Moore's candidacy for the Senate. The party initially took a position in line with its purported values: that a credibly accused child molester, who haunted the local mall seeking dates with teenage girls when he was in his 30s, is unworthy of the high office he seeks.

But then Trump endorsed Moore — given that more than a dozen women have accused the president of sexual misconduct, the phrase “birds of a feather” comes to mind — and Republicans changed their tune. The flow of money from national party coffers to Moore's campaign, briefly interrupted, was resumed. Moore's fitness became a matter that no longer troubled the GOP's moral conscience, or what was left of it; only “the people of Alabama” could decide the difference between right and wrong.

Here is the distinction between our two major parties in 2017: Democratic leaders are forcing Representative John Conyers Jr. (Democrat-Michigan) and Senator Al Franken (Democrat-Minnesota), both accused of harassing women, to resign. Republican leaders are trying to put Moore, accused of harassing teenagers and molesting a 14-year-old, in the Senate.

Given that context, it is naive to assume that anything special counsel Robert S. Mueller III uncovers will lead Republicans to choose principle over political advantage. Trump boasted during the campaign that he could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue and not lose support. As far as the GOP majorities in Congress are concerned, he may be right.

Ultimately, that's what Trump is counting on. He has been using his Twitter feed to try to create the impression that Mueller — the straightest of straight arrows, and a lifelong Republican — is somehow biased against him. Trump's aim isn't so much to pull the wool over the eyes of his base; rather, it's to give House Republicans an excuse not to start impeachment proceedings, if and when the time comes.

I realize it seems premature to speak of such eventualities. But if there really was no collusion with Russia to tilt the election in Trump's favor, I wonder why one of the president's lawyers, Jay Sekulow, is arguing that such collusion would not constitute a crime. And if there really was no obstruction of justice, I wonder why another of Trump's lawyers, John Dowd, is arguing that the president by virtue of his office is incapable of obstructing justice.

Perhaps Trump and his family are just getting bad legal advice. I'm wondering who gave Donald Trump Jr. the bright idea to cite attorney-client privilege in refusing to answer the House Intelligence Committee's questions about conversations with his father — conversations that might bear on both collusion and obstruction.

Neither Trump nor Trump Jr. is an attorney. Conversations between Trump Jr. and his lawyer would be privileged, but not conversations Trump Jr. might have had with someone else while his lawyer was present. And Congress is not compelled to honor attorney-client privilege anyway, though it often does.

At least Trump Jr. gave a reason for his stonewalling. Other administration officials called to Capitol Hill to testify about Trump's possible obstruction — including Attorney General Jeff Sessions — have relied on some imaginary privilege not to discuss conversations with the president.

The GOP-led committees investigating the Russia affair could subpoena witnesses, compel them to speak and hold them in contempt if they refuse. I'm not holding my breath.

Those of us who care whether the president worked with a foreign power to influence the election and then actively impeded an FBI investigation do have recourse, however. I've said it before, but it bears repeating: If this Congress refuses to stand up for justice and American ideals, we need to elect a Congress that will.

The Trump presidency poses a challenge beyond politics or policy. Wrongheaded trickle-down tax policy is a matter of arithmetic; it can be corrected by moving numbers around a spreadsheet. But once corruption has become established, it takes herculean effort to root it out; once respect for the rule of law is lost, it takes generations to restore.

Mueller is doing his job. Ours is to elect Democrats and independents next year who will hold this appalling presidency to account.

Trump's mental meltdown

He's unraveling, and it couldn't have come at a more perilous time.

By JOE SCARBOROUGH | 7:36PM EST — Thursday, December 07, 2017

DONALD TRUMP spent much of 2016 questioning his opponent's stamina to be president of the United States. But it is now Trump's own fitness that is being scrutinized by friends and foes alike. After Trump spent recent weeks creating a level of chaos unseen around the White House since Richard Nixon's resignation in 1974, Capitol Hill politicians and media outlets are quietly questioning whether Trump is fit for the highest office in the land. That the commander in chief slurred his way through the end of a speech about Jerusalem on Wednesday was just the latest in a string of unsettling incidents.

Many who move through his orbit believe Trump is not well. That is a verdict that was reached long ago by many of the president's own staff. More than a few politicians and reporters across Washington have shared similar fears.

Senator Bob Corker (Republican-Tennessee) openly questioned Trump's competence and suggested that administration officials are doing little more than running “an adult day care center”. The chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee also expressed fear that the president's erratic behavior is putting the United States “on the path to World War III”.

The secretary of state reportedly called the president a “moron”.

The national security adviser allegedly said Trump has the mind of a “kindergartner”.

John McCain's 2008 campaign manager Steve Schmidt said on Thursday that “the question of his fitness, of his stability is in the air”.

Unfortunately, Schmidt is right. With the pace of headlines detailing Trump's erratic behavior quickening, so, too, are questions about his well being.

White House insiders tell Vanity Fair that Trump is “unraveling” mentally.

One of the president's regular early-morning reads, the New York Daily News, editorialized last week that “the President of the United States is profoundly unstable. He is mad. He is, by any honest layman's definition, mentally unwell and viciously lashing out.”

The New York Times's Maggie Haberman, who, along with The Washington Post's Robert Costa, has the best working relationship with this White House, described Trump's recent behavior as “unmoored”. She told CNN, “Something is unleashed with him lately. I don't know what is causing it. I don't know how to describe it.” Haberman's long history covering Trump makes her searing observations all the more troubling.

The president has spent the past few weeks insulting the United States' closest allies, retweeting anti-Muslim videos from far-right British activists, spitting out racist slurs at a ceremony honoring Native American veterans, privately embracing conspiracy theories related to his “Access Hollywood” tape and Barack Obama's birthplace, slandering CNN International, and, yes, pushing a bizarre conspiracy theory in my direction.

Any Fortune 500 company would have fired a chief executive exhibiting similarly erratic behavior long ago. Unfortunately, the Washington leaders most strategically positioned to limit the damage seem to be frozen by fear.

The president's meltdown could not come at a more perilous time. For months now, national security insiders have been fretting about the possibility of war on the Korean Peninsula. But administration sources admit their greatest fear is their own commander in chief's instability.

That should surprise few Americans. In August 2016, Mika Brzezinski and I reported on “Morning Joe” that then-candidate Trump horrified foreign policy briefers by how flippantly he mentioned the option of using nuclear weapons on countries such as North Korea and Iran. During a 2016 interview with Chris Matthews, Trump even refused to rule out the use of such weapons in Europe and the Middle East. Mika grimly warned viewers that a Trump presidency could lead to nuclear war. She implored Republican leaders to pull their endorsement of the troubled candidate in the best interest of their party and country.

Many close to the candidate expressed concerns on background about Trump's fitness for office. That is a conclusion Mika and I reached two years ago this week when Trump unveiled his Muslim ban proposal. Two years later, Trump has dragged America's values and reputation to their lowest point in years. If Republicans don't find their bearings soon, it may be America's safety and security that are next to go.

from The Washington Post....

Trump has already taken the test on whether he is stupid and insane

The result was forecast…

By TOM TOLES | 12:45PM EST — Tuesday, January 09, 2018



PRESIDENT TRUMP is now insisting he's sane. He has all but said that he's the only one who's sane — it's everybody else who's crazy!

Admittedly, this is a tough spot he's in, having to convince people that you are sane, especially when you're actually not. Trump is about to undergo a health exam because the citizens would like to know if their president is fit to serve. Conveniently for Trump, the exam will not include a check of his mental or emotional state.

This leaves the rest of the nation to sort through the rumors that his staff thinks he’s an idiot of the blithering variety, and to wonder whether when tying his shoes he is verbally confused as to whether the bunny “runs around the tree” or “is shot and thrown in the pot.”

But we don't need to have all the details as to whether he spends his days shouting at the presidents in the portrait gallery or repeating 12 times that he wants a Diet Coke and drinking them all when he wanted only one. We have all the evidence we need that he is stupid. And that he is crazy.

Stupid: It is fair to say that in the 21st century, a baseline measure of intelligence is the ability to understand how science works, acquire a rough understanding of relevant research and base your decision-making with the evidence in mind. Trump has so spectacularly failed in even the most rudimentary understanding of climate research that it is appalling and incomprehensible to a literally planetary degree. While there are plenty of self-interested parties who pretend that the science is unsettled, Trump genuinely appears to be confounded by what is now a straightforward case for the carbon warming connection.

Insane: Whatever the excuse for his stupidity, laziness or cynicism about the science, his actual policy of subverting efforts to slow and stop the ongoing catastrophe of climate change is nothing short of active madness, plain and simple. His alternative of relentlessly trying to reverse progress already made by trying to get even more coal burned on Planet Blast Furnace while simultaneously filling our breathing air with disease-causing particulates is nothing less than dementia of a high-crimes-and-misdemeanors magnitude.

Given the seen and forecast consequences, we don’t need one CO² molecule more of evidence than this.

Donald J. Trump is showing the same early symptoms also displayed by Ronnie Ray-Guns, except those symptoms are 1,000% more obvious in Trump's case.

Hahaha....how does it feel to be an idiot from Woodville sucked in by a mental retard in Jesusland?

There is a good book you can read about Donald J. Trump's patently obvious mental illness.

CLICK HERE.

You can read all about how fucked-in-the-head President Dumb really is.

from The New York Times....

EDITORIAL: Is Mr. Trump Nuts?

It's the wrong question.
Efforts to diagnose the president from afar are
damaging to real efforts to address his unfitness.


By THE EDITORIAL BOARD | Wednesday, January 10, 2018



IS Donald Trump mentally fit to be president of the United States? It's an understandable question, and it's also beside the point.

Understandable because Mr. Trump's behavior in office — impulsive, erratic, dishonest, childish, crude — is so alarming, and so far from what Americans expect in their chief executive, that it cries out for a deeper explanation.

It's beside the point not because a president's mental capacity doesn't matter, nor because we should blindly accept our leaders' declarations of their own stability, let alone genius. Rather, we don't need a medical degree or a psychiatric diagnosis to tell us what is wrong with Mr. Trump. It's obvious to anyone who listens to him speak, reads his tweets and sees the effects of his behavior — on the presidency, on the nation and its most important institutions, and on the integrity of the global order.

Presidents should not, for instance, taunt the leaders of hostile nations with demeaning nicknames and boasts about the size of their “nuclear button”. They should not tweet out videos depicting them violently assaulting their political opponents. They should not fire the F.B.I. director to derail an investigation into their own campaign's possible collusion with a foreign government to swing the election. And, of course, they shouldn't have to find themselves talking to reporters to insist that they're mentally stable.

This behavior may be evidence of some underlying disorder, or it may not. Who knows? Mr. Trump hasn't undergone a mental-health evaluation, at least not one made public. But even if his behavior were diagnosed as an illness, what would that tell us that we don't already know? Plenty of people with mental disorders or disabilities function at high levels of society. Conversely, if Mr. Trump were found to have no diagnosable illness, he would be no more fit for the office he holds than he is today.

The problem lies in trying to locate the essence of Mr. Trump's unfitness in the unknowable reaches of his mind, as opposed to where we can all openly see it and address it in political terms. As the psychiatrist Allen Frances told The New York Times: “You can't say enough about how incompetent and unqualified he is to be leader of the free world. But that does not make him mentally ill.”

Unfortunately, a number of psychiatrists, politicians and others who should know better have increasingly taken up the Trump-is-crazy line. In The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump, released last October, more than two dozen contributors, most mental-health professionals, concluded that Mr. Trump presents a grave and immediate danger to the safety of America and the world. No argument there, but why do we need to hear it from psychiatrists relying on their professional credentials? Dr. Bandy Lee, one of the book's editors, said the authors are “assessing dangerousness, not making a diagnosis.” Anyone with access to newspapers or Mr. Trump's Twitter feed can do the same.

The psychiatrists say they have a duty to warn the public about what they see as a serious threat to the nation. That's commendable, but they should consider how their comments will be taken by the vast majority of Americans, particularly in a highly politically polarized time. The language of mental health and illness is widely used yet poorly understood, and it comes loaded with unwarranted assumptions and harmful stereotypes. There's a good reason the profession established an ethical guideline in 1973, known as the Goldwater Rule, that prohibits psychiatrists from offering professional judgment on public figures they have not personally examined.

In the future, it would be a good idea if presidential candidates voluntarily submitted to a mental-health evaluation, just as they often do a physical one — and in that case, psychiatrists would have a critical role to play. But you don't need to put Mr. Trump on a couch now to discover who he is.

So what's the right way to deal with Mr. Trump's evident unfitness?

Not the 25th Amendment, despite the sudden fashion for it. Ratified in the wake of President John Kennedy's assassination, the amendment authorizes the temporary removal of a president who is unable to do the job. Its final section, which has never been invoked, was meant to clarify what should happen if the president becomes clearly incapacitated. One of the amendment's drafters, Jay Berman, a former congressional staff member who has said Mr. Trump “appears unhinged,” still doesn't believe that the amendment applies to his case.

Even if invoking the amendment were the best approach, consider what would need to happen. First, the vice president, plus a majority of Mr. Trump's cabinet, must declare to Congress that the president cannot do his job. If Mr. Trump disagreed, they would have to restate their case. Only then would both houses of Congress get involved, and each would have to agree by a two-thirds vote. The chances of any of these steps being taken in today's political environment are less than zero.

Impeachment would be a more direct and fitting approach, if Mr. Trump's actions rise to the level of high crimes or misdemeanors. But this path is similarly obstructed by Republicans in Congress, who are behaving less like members of a coequal branch with oversight power than like co-conspirators of a man they know is unfit to govern.

The best solution is the simplest: Vote, and organize others to register and to vote. If you believe Donald Trump represents a danger to the country and the world, you can take action to rein in his power. In November, you can help elect members of Congress who will fight Mr. Trump's most dangerous behaviors. If that fails, there's always 2020.

You wouldn't know REAL news if you tripped over it.

You prefer the verbal diarrhoea from the likes of InfoWars where stupid gullible mentally-retarded people believe the garbage they read eminating from Alex Jones and then get tooled up with firearms to go looking for non-existant child-torture-chambers beneath pizza joints in Washington D.C., then wonder why the cops arrest them and bang them up in the slammer charged with a whole lot of dumb shit, and all because they are stupid, gullible mental-defects, just like Donald J. Trump.

from The New York Times....

Maybe Trump Is Not Mentally Ill.
Maybe He's Just a Jerk.


Without proper neuropsychological testing of the president, we can't
know if he has a mental disorder or is merely a narcissistic bully.


By JEFFREY A. LIEBERMAN | Friday, January 12, 2018

Illustration by Delcan & Company. | Pool photograph by Ron Sachs.
Illustration by Delcan & Company. | Pool photograph by Ron Sachs.

AS A past president of the American Psychiatric Association, I feel strongly that my fellow psychiatrists, and any psychologists or therapists, should stop speculating publicly about President Trump's mental fitness and stop trying to diagnose possible mental conditions based on their armchair observations.

It's not that Mr. Trump's mental fitness should not be evaluated — quite the contrary. All sitting presidents should be evaluated, though most presidential physical exams have included only cursory evaluations of their mental health. When President Trump undergoes his annual medical examination on Friday, his first since taking office, I hope that his assessments include the specific tests that could readily determine if he suffers from a neuropsychiatric condition that could explain his erratic behavior and undermine his ability to perform his duties.

But even if these tests are conducted, it is unlikely that we will learn the results. This would be unfortunate, because speculation about Mr. Trump's mental fitness appears to be reaching its zenith. It is not just the odd behaviors that have become so common: his obsessive tweeting; his shocking, often contradictory statements; and his instances of confusion (for example, not recognizing Rudy Giuliani sitting across from him at a White House meeting or appearing not to remember the words to the national anthem at a sport event).

Now we have Michael Wolff's book, “Fire and Fury”, in which the president's own staff members question Mr. Trump’s stability and cognitive ability. In response to early accounts of the book, the president tweeted in defense of his mental capacities that “actually, throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart.”

Yet the reality is that, unless the president is properly evaluated, we have no real evidence to know with certainty if he has a mental disorder. And even if we did, we lack a clear constitutional standard for what severity of impairment would render him unfit to serve. History has shown us that former presidents have suffered conditions hampering their mental function while still in office, including Ronald Reagan, Calvin Coolidge and Woodrow Wilson. Consider the case of Reagan: He was eventually diagnosed with Alzheimer's, but if he was beginning to show symptoms in his second term, as some believe he was, that did not preclude him from finishing his term.

The experiences of those presidents provide convincing evidence that, even if there weren't a tsunami of speculation about Mr. Trump's mental condition now, Congress should consider adopting policies to standardize, and to expand as needed, the scope of presidential medical exams to include neuropsychiatric assessments.

As I have written, disorders such as psychosis, dementia, depression and addiction commonly occur in people in the age range of presidents — and any of those, when severe enough, could damage a president's ability to discharge his or her duties. The 25th Amendment provides a process for transferring power from presidents deemed incompetent. However, we still lack a defined process for applying the 25th Amendment to a president who will not voluntarily submit to an examination to evaluate mental competence. We also lack clear criteria for what behavior warrants an intervention and transfer of power to the vice president.

The 25th Amendment has been invoked only a handful of times since its ratification in 1967. But except during the Watergate scandal, these incidents mainly involved giving vice presidents the power of the presidency while the president was undergoing medical procedures that included general anesthesia.

There is another problem with the current debate over Mr. Trump's mental condition: It assumes his behavior isn't voluntary, and that his shocking or “unpresidential” conduct is a symptom of mental illness. This kind of thinking contributes to the stigmatization of mental illness. It’s entirely possible that he simply has certain personal qualities we don't find ideal in a leader, like being a narcissistic bully who lacks basic civility and common courtesies. That he is, in a word, a jerk. But that alone does not make him mentally unfit to serve.

It's also worth noting that when psychiatrists engage in clinical name calling about the president's mental status without adequate evidence and proper evaluation, they are damaging the credibility of the entire field. Psychiatry has had a checkered past: Witness its collusion in Nazi eugenics policies, Soviet political repression and the involuntary confinement in mental hospitals of dissidents and religious groups in the People's Republic of China. More than any other medical specialty, psychiatry is vulnerable to being exploited for partisan political purposes.

We can raise an index of suspicion, make back-seat observations of someone's behavior to express our concerns and even speculate as to whether illness may be the underlying cause. But those observations, coming from physicians — even psychiatrists like myself — are merely public opinion. They are not reliable as evidence for definitive diagnosis and removal of a sitting president from office. Mr. Trump's public behavior will never be enough for us to determine his mental fitness because a diagnosis requires a thorough and nonpartisan examination.

To put this matter to rest, either President Trump should voluntarily submit to a neuropsychiatric evaluation or mechanisms should be established to require him — and all future presidents — to do so.

The only thing fake about Trump is that he is a “fake president”.

He wouldn't know how to be presidential if he tripped over it.

Good job that the Poms have dodged a bullet and now won't be visited by a stupid retard and emperor with no clothes.

The prospect of Brits protesting against him had Trump so quaking in his boots that he is now too scared to visit the UK.

Still need proof that Donald J. Trump is a narcissitic arsehole who doesn't give a shit about anybody except himself?

Then read on……




from The Washington Post....

The false alarm in Hawaii revealed an abdication of leadership by Trump

Trump could and should have responded quickly to assuage Americans. He never did.

By PHILIP BUMP | 9:24AM EST — Sunday, January 14, 2018

ON A normal day, there aren't many people heading to Google to figure out how to survive a nuclear strike. But Saturday was not a normal day.

Shortly after 2:30 p.m. Eastern, searches for “how to survive nuclear” peaked in the U.S., from being almost non-existent to being almost twice as common as “how to make pasta.” The increase was centered in Hawaii, where about 90 minutes earlier, a warning had gone out over the state's emergency alert system: “BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII. SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER. THIS IS NOT A DRILL”.

You can see when that alert went out on this graph.




It was wrong.

According to a timeline released by the state, the alert was triggered at 8:07 a.m. local time when, during an internal drill, an employee hit the wrong button. For 13 minutes it went uncorrected, until the emergency management agency sent an update on social media.

Over the ensuing hours, a number of people have relayed their experience after receiving the incorrect message. Near panic. Comforting children while worrying about loved ones. Confusion and uncertainty from officials. In the absence of other information, cobbling together what evidence they could for whether they would survive the day.

Many reported first hearing that the alert was a mistake from the Twitter account of Representative Tulsi Gabbard (Democrat-Hawaii).




Her tweet went out within about 15 minutes of the false alarm to her 174,000 followers. She was probably the first well-known authority figure to inform the public that there was no need to panic. News outlets picked up that clarification and spread it widely.

This, by contrast, was President Trump's first tweet after the incorrect alert went out.




It was sent more than three hours after the alert went out. As you can see, it has nothing to do with the alert. Those who follow Trump on Twitter — 46.6 million of them — haven't been given any information about what happened on Saturday at all.

The White House did release a statement, well after the alert was revealed to be incorrect.

“The President has been briefed on the state of Hawaii's emergency management exercise,” it read. “This was purely a state exercise.”

At the time the incorrect alert went out Trump was finishing up a round of golf at Trump National Golf Course in Florida.

Consider his responses. First that statement, which has one obvious aim: To assure the American people that it wasn't his fault that the false alert went out — it was Hawaii's. Then, that tweet, which shows what was preoccupying the president at the moment. Not that one of the 50 states had been briefly wracked with terror after a mistake was made by the people whose job it is to keep them safe. Instead, an insistence to the American people that the media is “fake news,” which was probably a response to the reports that trickled out bolstering a story from The Wall Street Journal that Trump had allegedly paid hush money to a porn star with whom he'd had an affair.

That was the thing that Trump urgently wanted to clear up: The media couldn't be trusted when it reported on him.

Trump could have tweeted as soon as possible that the alert was a false alarm, sharing that information with millions of Americans immediately. He could have additionally shared information about what went wrong, and assured people that he would work to make sure that no such error happened again in the future. He could, at the very least, have sought to offer some emotional support to the people of Hawaii. He did none of these. He has, as of writing, done none of these.

Since the beginning of his presidency, Trump has rarely assumed that traditional leadership role of the presidency. He's always taken a hostile attitude toward those who opposed his candidacy, certainly, but he's also been apathetic about stepping up more broadly to inform, guide and assure the American public. The primary concerns Trump conveys to Americans are about Trump: About how he's being treated, about how well he is doing, about the media and his opponents and how he just wants to make America great again. The White House releases statements and, as he did on Friday in recognizing Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Trump will read them or tweet about them. But it's clearly not where his heart lies.

Perhaps that the incident occurred in Hawaii plays a role. It seems odd to have to note that, but it's certainly defensible. From his attorney general at one point dismissing the state as “an island in the Pacific” to Trump's general focus on states he won to, we have to note, the gulf between his responses to the hurricanes that struck Texas and Florida and the one that nearly wiped Puerto Rico clean — there is plenty of evidence that can be cited for Trump's not necessarily having the state of Hawaii at the forefront of his thoughts. Normally, one wouldn't even assume that a president might be indifferent to one of the 50 states; here, it's impossible not to wonder if it's the case.

This is not a high hurdle for a president to face. Should a state be informed that a missile is inbound, it seems self-evident that the president should be made aware of this as rapidly as possible — even if golfing — and act quickly to confirm or rebut the claim. To then quickly inform the public that the story is not true and insist that a review will be undertaken nationally to prevent such a thing from happening again. Perhaps a photo of the president, stern look on his face, speaking with the governor of Hawaii.

An assurance that the government recognizes that a mistake was made and that it is handling things. That didn't happen.

It's also hard to imagine that Trump didn't make the situation more stressful in another way. His constant prodding of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has dramatically increased the sense that a missile might actually be launched at Hawaii from that nation. During the past 12 months, we've learned a lot more about what North Korea can do, and we've heard experts describe Trump's response as exacerbating, not lessening, the possibility of conflict.

The result is that there was actually one message Trump sent to Hawaiians on Saturday.

You're on your own.
