54. Could be,

I peg him as acute Dyslectic. Read that print out,so many clues as to Dyslexia,and now we hear about his Raging in the White House. That is acute Dyslexia in full bloom. And he being a psychopath and Narcissistic,that explains his thought process as well as his actions and reactions. The Guy has had tons of people around him to protect his behavior from being exposed.

Daddy had the money,and he blew it because he was unable to do simple Book Keeping. He threw his brother under the Bus because it would hurt his Social Image if he supported him. We have now seen just how dysfunctional the who Trump Family is from Fred all the way down the line.

80. Dyslectic???????

Dyslectic is the slightest of his problems. Hell, he is delusional in almost everything he says and does. That outright qualifies him as Psychotic. I believe that even extreme narcism is a psychosis........

His cruel and inhumane actions against immigrant children alone makes him a psychopath of the highest order.

(And it makes you seriously wonder about all his appointed cronies, the U.S. Senate Republicans, and the Republican party in it's entirety.....)

90. As a reading specialist, I fully agree that he's dyslexic.

I just don't know what "an acute Dyslexic in full bloom" means. Dyslexics can be "hyper" or act out in other ways, but they are NOT usually pyschopaths or narcissists. That's "Trump being Trump," as they say. The signs he shows of dyslexia do not include "raging," but are more subtle. His dyslexia, rarely, if ever, dealt with in the era he went through school, certainly contributed a lot to his psychological demeanor. It is not the CAUSE of his increasingly unstable behavior, just one of the factors contributing to the whole.

10. Yep

PRESIDENT TRUMP: The same letter that we announced yesterday, which was perfect, I couldn’t have written it better if I wrote it myself. I could not have said or had a better conversation. And we had a really nice gentleman in the president of Ukraine yesterday.

And he was great. They said: “Was he pressured you?” These animals in the press. They’re animals actually. Some of the worst human beings you’ll ever meet.

AUDIENCE MEMBER: Fake news!

TRUMP: Fake news, fake news. They’re scum, many of them are scum. You have some good reporters but not many, I’ll be honest with you. And that’s one of the things we battle. You’ll find out, but they’ll probably like you better than they like me, but I had to get us here right? But they’re total — just terrible dishonest people — and they couldn’t figure out — “What do we say bad about this conversation?”

Then it turns out that they had senators, Democrat senators went over there and strong-armed the guy. “You better damn well do this or you’re not going to get any money from Congress.” Oh I see, that’s O.K.? And then you have Sleepy Joe Biden, who’s dumb as a rock.

(Laughter)

This guy was dumb on his best day, and he’s not having his best day right now. He’s dumb as a rock. So you have Sleepy Joe, and he goes up, and his kid, who’s got a lot of problems, he got thrown out of the Navy. I mean look I’m not going to — it’s a problem, that’s a problem, so we won’t get into why and all that. But he got thrown out of the Navy, and now this kid goes into Ukraine, walks away with millions of dollars, and he becomes a consultant for $50,000 a month. And he doesn’t know anything compared to anybody in this room. He’s a stiff, he knows nothing. He’s walking away with $50,000, or as you would say in the old days 50K a month. Not bad. Would anybody else in this room like to represent Ukraine just like —

(Crowd cheers)

TRUMP: That’s on top — you got the job — that’s on top of hundreds of thousands and millions of dollars. But that’s not the best one. The best one was China. This came up. So now he goes to China, and I was with the head of Blackstone which is the big deal. Steve Schwarzman. I said, “Steve, is that possible?” “No, why? Who got that?” I said. “Biden’s son.” “Ooh,” Well then you know he says, “Maybe I shouldn’t get involved, you know it’s very political.” I say, “Steve, what happens when you come off a vice presidential plane, it’s called Air Force Two, your father’s with you, you walk into a room in China and they give you a fund of $1.5 billion, billion, you make hundreds of thousands of dollars and millions of dollars off that. And that’s probably not all they gave him. They gave him plenty more, I’m sure. We might never find out.

And then they talk about me, and I didn’t do anything. I don’t know if I’m the most innocent person in the world.

(Laughter)

TRUMP: But you know you look at that — most presidential, I just said I’m the most presidential except for possibly Abe Lincoln when he wore the hat — that was tough to beat.

(Laughter)

Honest Abe, when he wore that hat, that was tough to beat. But I can’t do that, that hat wouldn’t work for me. Yeah, I have better hair than him. But Honest Abe was tough to beat. Remember we used to do that during the campaign. They used to say, when I speak, the crowd would be crazy, I’d go crazy — we would all go crazy. We had a lot of fun together. We had 25,000 — We’ve never had an empty seat. From the day I came down the escalator, with a potential — unbelievable woman who became a first lady.

(Applause)

The crowds loved her, the people love her.

But we’ve never had an empty seat, not one. I really believe that. There was one case where we had a tremendous snowstorm, and it was just about frozen. It was like a monster storm, I don’t even know how it got there. I said, “how’s the crowd?” “It’s just not full, sir.” I said what does that mean. There’s like two seats on top. Thousands and thousands of people couldn’t get there. So they show pictures of the empty seats. The worst storm they’ve had in years. They show pictures of like nine empty seats. They could have been people just went to the bathroom together.

(Laughter)

I always say just get the biggest arena. Good location if you can, but get the biggest arena. We did it the other night, Tuesday night. We had two congressmen, one who was possibly going to win, he was up by two, he won by about 27, I think, or something like that. A lot. The other one was down by 17. And they said, “Sir, don’t campaign for him please.” “Why?” “Because if he loses, they’re going to kill you, the press.” I said they’re going to kill me whether I campaign or not. It’ll make it a little bit worse. They’ll say he worked and he failed. Trump failed. The guy was down 17 points and he ended up winning by a lot. In fact, the whole night, CNN. . . (inaudible)

TRUMP: The studio was going to stay up for weeks, and toward the end of the night they were taking it down. Their so-called stars were leaving. They don’t have many stars. But they were taking — the stars were leaving. The candidate Dan Bishop won by a lot. He was down by 17, and they had lines a mile long. I mean the lines going into those voting booths were unbelievable. And without the rally speech, and a couple of tweets and Twitter stuff is good. We have like way over 100 million people on six or seven different platforms. It’s actually much higher than that, higher than just about everybody. And it helps. It helps. They have signs oftentimes when I speak. This woman the other night, beautiful woman, she’s got a son: “Please keep tweeting sir, it matters.” And it does matter, because we get our voice out. If we don’t do that, we don’t get the voice out.

I can’t say what a great job Kelly [Craft] is doing, and I can’t say what a wonderful husband he is. Look at how devoted he is. He’s a rich man, too. He’s loaded. What are you doing here? Why are you working? He’s so proud of his wife he can’t leave his office. That’s really great though, huh? Are you all proud of her? He said very much. And he’s really a fantastic guy, he’s been a friend of mine for a long time. Before I met Kelly, I met Joe [Craft]. And Joe impressed me because of his knowledge of energy. Now he could be paid — O.K., you’re going to pay a guy 50 — for him that’s not quite good enough, although he might. He might. It’s easy money, Joe, you have to say. But he would be an expert on energy, he would be a real expert. He would be somebody you would pay a lot of money to, but not Joe Biden’s son.

So the whistle-blower came out and said nothing. Said “a couple of people told me he had a conversation with Ukraine.” We’re at war. These people are sick. They’re sick. And nobody’s called them out like I do. I don’t understand. People are afraid to call them out. They’re afraid to say that the press is crooked. We have a crooked press. We have a dishonest media. So now they’re devastated, but they’ll always find something. I’m sure there’ll be something they’ll find in this report that will suit their lie. But basically that person never saw the report, never saw the call. Never saw the call. Heard something, and decided that he or she or whoever the hell it is — sort of like almost a spy.

I want to know who’s the person that gave the whistle-blower the information, because that’s close to a spy. You know what we used to do in the old days when we were smart? Right? With spies and treason, right? We used to handle them a little differently than we do now. Now you have guys like little Adam Schiff defending you. He says “pencil neck.” That name stuck. He’s got shirts that are too big, because you can’t buy shirts that small. He was never a coal miner, Joe, let’s put it that way. I don’t think he worked in the mines. Do you think? I don’t think so.

The rest of the world knows exactly what is going on. They see Donald as a senile and disturbed old man, desperately trying to hold onto a job he is not competent at, using skills he doesn't have.

The world is watching, looking at the difference between Obama and Trump, and wonders what went wrong in the US political system that allowed this decay to happen.
Changes need to be made, and not just changing POTUS, before the rest of the world can relax.

And fixing THAT perception - that the rot that goes deeper than Trump himself has been fixed - will be a big job for the next POTUS.

He replied that he simply didn't see any quid pro quo in the transcript, and Democrats were rushing to impeachment without evidence.

23. Verbatim transcripts of his rantings and ravings


Should be required reading. When Sarah Palin was out on the campaign trail and they’d carry sound bites of some of her speeches or interviews, I’d read them. It was after I read the transcript (or tried to read them!) that I realized what utter nonsense she babbled. The same could be said about tRump. If you listen to him ramble on, it is easy to get lost in the maze of confusion and not realize exactly how unhinged many of his statements are. But when you see them in print, you can slow down or re-read them. That’s when the incoherency jumps out as you struggle to follow along, to comprehend and understand what he is trying to say. It really is a window to how his mind works and after you see it, you can’t ever unsee it. 😳😵🤔

88. Guy keeps trying to draw comparisons with Lincoln.

When Lincoln gave everything he had to the challenge of preserving the union.


Trump is more like Jefferson Davis, who collected the remnants of a divided nation and established his political power on the basis of retaining a barbaric practice.

Trump wants to continue and stengthen the barbaric practice of white male privilege.

Lincoln--who like most of us, was something of a product of his own time--understood the cruelty and immorality of slavery. He may not have been as progressive as some folk of his time may have liked, but he caught a vision of a time when government of, for, and by the people would really meant all people.

On a sort of side note: Some people believe that America's military might and economic wealth are what make it great. But armies and weapons and money are not the things in danger of perishing from the earth.

(And don't get me started on the whole life-sustaining ecosystem perishing from the earth.)
