Is Trump losing it or trolling us? [View all]

Seems to be a pretty even divide between those who think Trump is losing his mind and those who think he is playing us. I’m on the side he’s going off the deep end. I don’t think he’s smart enough to be thinking ahead and following thru. Too impulsive, I think his mouth just vomits out whatever ridiculous thought he is having. What do you think?
