"Trump is insane: And it's time for leading Democrats to say that out loud."

Democrats should also get over their concerns about angering Trump supporters. Anyone who continues to applaud Trump's weird and reckless disregard for humanity at this point is beyond the limit of rational persuasion. Trump supporters live in a hallucinatory dreamscape under the authority of a maniac. Let them have their anti-social distancing rallies, and allow them to believe that Barack Obama invented COVID-19 shortly after he was born in Kenya.

2. I call it "The Big Truth"

It's the mirror image of the Big Lie. It's that truth that should be immediately obvious to anybody, but almost no one embraces it. That's because the consequences if it were true are too awful to contemplate.

5. That's a great thought--

The Big Truth is so big and so dangerous, it's hard to say it out loud.

15. Trump should have been caged immediately when he did that.

It's so scary living in a failed state.

How about Republicans? I am furiously frustrated that the finger is pointed at us! Sure, everyone should call him out, but to single out Democrats is crazy. Donít fall for it. Push back!

16. Russiapublicans are lost. No point trying to persuade them.

Dems still know what's up, but need to find the courage to stand up and loudly call him INSANE.

14. Way past time for Democrats to do this, and do it non-stop.

Removal of a mentally ill chief executive via Article 25 proceedings should be the subject of active discussions all around D.C., right now.

And trump's daily "press briefings" should be dropped by all major networks, immediately.

These are obvious, desperately needed steps that need to be well under way. trump is sentencing this country to a death penalty---how about a little blow-back?

17. Article Opening

 

Salon:

Psychologists warn of the deadly consequences of the "silent partner" in abusive homes. When a father beats or sexually assaults a child, the family will often react by refusing to discuss the abuse, allowing silence to enable the predator and protect against confronting a reality that is too painful and frightening.

The United States of America is now an abusive household. Donald Trump is the lunatic authority figure stalking and traumatizing the victims ó the American people ó while the Democratic Party, along with the mainstream media, act as the silent partner.

It becomes increasingly evident, with Trump's every social media post, public utterance and policy directive, that our president suffers from a severe form of mental illness. His insanity threatens millions of lives, and has become particularly dangerous during the most devastating public health crisis in the last 100 years.

For all the criticism that Democrats and pundits advance against Trump, their refusal to state the obvious forces the American public to feel as if we are the ones confined to a mental institution. It also emboldens Trump, even as he prioritizes his fragile ego, his compulsion to appear infallible and political expediency above the lives of countless human beings.
