Jennifer Rubin - Trump Is Losing It.

She's a conservative pundit. That said, she writes for the Washington Post. She gets her paycheque from Bezos, the guy Trump routinely targets. Still, Jennifer Rubin makes some the arguments that Donald Trump is coming unglued.

In the past 24 hours, Trump - who will be 74 in November 2020 and is "tired," according to aides - has: 
Falsely declared multiple times that his father was born in Germany. (Fred Trump was born in New York.) 
Declared that wind turbines cause cancer. 
Confused "origins" and "oranges" in asking reporters to look into the "oranges of the Mueller report." 
Told Republicans to be more "paranoid" about vote-counting.

...I don't presume to diagnose him or to render judgment on his health. All of us, however, should evaluate his words and actions. 
If you had a relative who spoke this way, you would urge him to get checked out or advise him to slow down (although Trump's schedule, with its hours of "executive time," is already lighter than the schedules of many retirees). Remember that this guy is the commander in chief, holder of the nuclear codes. 
...Collectively, we need to stop treating his conduct as normal. Politicians should start saying aloud what we all intuitively understand: Trump is unravelling before our eyes. 
There is reason to be concerned about how he'll make it through the rest of his term. Giving him another four years is unimaginable.

The Fake News media has been losing it the past 4 years since The Donald threw his hat in the ring. They've been gas-lighting the people with all manner of foolishness. Crap-throwing monkeys throwing whatever comes out their arses!

Now the question is: Why?

The answer, of course, is on a need-to-know basis. If you're a sky-screaming hysterical, you're not meant to know anything. You are livestock. You are a pawn. You are a throw-away clog in The Machine.

The truth is that the Robber Barons and their flying monkeys discovered The Donald's secret identity decades ago: Donald J. Trump is Tariff Man!

Tariff Man slays "terrible trade deals" faster than a speeding bullet. More powerful than a coven of global oligarchs. Able to leap above tall-standing Fake-Politicians in a single bound!

You might want to go easy on that stuff, Charlie. It's horse shit.
