Is he delusional? Is he a liar? All of the above? None of the above? Why do you have your opinion, whatever it is?

I don't now specifically what you are talking about but the liars are the media and people claiming Russia hacked into our election and has Russian agents in the Trump team.How can you overlook these lies and claim Trump is a liar?

His father had Alzheimer's at age 75 or 76. That's about as far as you can get into this argument, everything else is a dismissive ad hominem against the man.

Look, I get that he is a personality. But that does not a disorder make.

He's brilliant. He's calculated. He's deliberate. He's polarizing. He wants what's best for his country.

Trump is at least entertaining and certainly does not want the USA to go war with Russia and the world to go through a Nuclear exchange as do the Democrats ...

I think a better title would be: Are the Democrats seriously mentally ill?

I don't know about mentally ill, but I think the Clinton campaign's claim that he's "temperamentally unfit" for the job is spot on. It takes an intelligent, dispassionate, and extremely disciplined individual to do the job without getting eaten alive, and that ain't Sideshow Don.

I anticipate 2 years of constant scandal followed by a heart attack, a nervous breakdown, or an impeachment.

Then how come it gets worse and worse for the American people no matter who we've had in power both Republican and Democrat? They have sold out and have abandoned the US Constitution,have made secret deals with globalists and they are pushing their agenda instead of putting America and the American people first. They should all be tried for treason because they swear to uphold and defend the Constitution and instead are pushing a globalist agenda. This is why both Obama,Hillary and Jeb Bush all were pushing a globalist agenda and when you listened to them speak they sounded like President of the world instead of President of America,The democratic Party refuses to keep America safe even when they know we have Islamic terrorist attacks in every country around the world where muslims live.We have not had an intlligent,disciplined individual as President,they have all failed us.The one thing you don't understand is nationalism is spreading around the world,not just in America but our government is against it.Whether you realize it or not this Trump movement is not a Republican Party thing,it is both Republicans and Democrats who want America and the American people to be put first instead of the world and what other countries want. The Democratic Party is no longer your Grandfathers Democrat Party,it has been hyjacked by people who refuse to do what is best for America.America can control its own destiny and we should be.

Abe, what has all that to do with the question of Trump's competence, or whether he's simply emotionally reacting per his latest tweets about tapping, etc? OK, yep, he's an anti-globalist. But that's not the question being asked. Course, asking questions about competence is a great way to discredit him. But Trump, in the way he shoots from the hip, and often without qualifications, sets himself up for these things. "Millions voted illegally" - OK, so they did and you know it - then where's the evidence for this? He often operates as if he were on a gameshow. Hopefully he'll alter HOW he says stuff - because even when correct, his style opens himself up to all manner of accusations. Yeah, he's really giving it to the left - great. Yeah, the forces against him ARE formidable, secretive, and often unethical. But he's not gonna help himself or us by reactive, off-the-cuff tweets made without forthcoming context, substance and facts. Accusations and assertions are not enough. Self-promotion ain't gonna cut in on a stage of this scale. Simply doubling down and repeating assertions is not providing factual info to be assessed. He better learn that, and FAST!

How do you know? Where are you getting your news from?There has been no evidence presented that shows colluson with Russian officials after a year of investigation and so how do you know the news reports are true?No evidence has been presented,it is all accusation. Now you may believe it,but there is no evidence of any wrong doing. And the MSM has a serious credibility problem.Did you know that more people get their news from alternative news sights than ABC,CBS,NBC,CNN,MSNBC,The New York Times,The Washington Post all put together? So the Democrats really do not have the power they once did to get their message out. This is a big reason why Trump won despite the MSM.

The tweeting don't bother me at all.It seems you are trying to put the political correctness cuffs on Trump when that is not his style.His style is to let the media just barrage him with all kind of fake news,then he hits back at the right time. He is just using Twitter to do it,now. This does not hurt Trump right now and his accusation is as good as theirs is over these Russia hack stories. This has not hurt Trump.it has for now changed some of the focus and it won't matter when he presents the evidence and is vindicated.He is reeling them in,can't you see?He is not afraid of them and is playing them like a fiddle politically.
