Trump's biggest betrayal yet could come in the last days of his presidency

Donald Trump is a lame duck. His decisions in the final weeks of his presidency will be driven by delusion, self-enrichment, and trying to handicap Joe Biden so Trump won’t be shamed by comparison. He could wreak untold damage on America unless he’s finally checked by Congress.
snip---
Congressional Republicans should fear Trump’s threat to America’s national interest more than his political clout. Many among the 74 million who voted for Trump voted for the party and its conservative policies — not for the man. Others bought into Republican propaganda warning that Biden would institute socialism and questioning his mental acuity. They settled for Trump. But they aren’t cultists with blind allegiance who will adhere to Trump after he’s lost his presidential powers.

There’s more to worry about. Congressional Republicans and Trump’s inner circle are concerned that Trump is delusional with no grip on reality. They note he regularly stumbles, slurs, gets confused, has trouble synthesizing information and exhibits signs of dementia.

Psychologist John Gartner believes Trump suffers from “malignant narcissism,” a diagnosis which combines paranoia, sociopathy, and sadism –“the closest thing psychiatry has to a true human monster.” More than 800 mental-health professionals warned, “failing to…understand the psychological aspects” of humiliating Trump “could lead to catastrophic outcomes.” Now that he’s been humiliated there’s no telling what he’s capable of.

2. He can be locked up in a kind place appropriate for his condition.

I pity those that would have to work with him.

10. It's not only you......

there has been a general overall rise of "mean" ever since that "man" began campaigning for the job he didn't want and couldn't handle.

7. Maybe some of those esteemed psychiatrists/psychologists...

could tell us what they think would be the final straw that pushes him over the edge and causes him to stroke out. Then some public hero/heroine could step in and make that happen and give us all a reprieve from this insanity and he could like in a nursing home somewhere drooling in his oatmeal.

8. Time Magazine

should have sued him for having one of his graphic artists phony up his picture on a Time Magazine "Person of The Year" Cover that he has framed on walls at all his resorts. Or better yet, run a real cover of his picture, and put a bold letter NOT across his face....

Some times, Trump doing this kind of shit reminds me of when Reagan used to talk to his Generals and tell them stories about his time in the military........In Reagan's mind, he actually believed he had been in the military because he acted in a few movies that he played a military character........

12. He tries to flee the country that may be what happens.

By no less the Secret Service having it out with Trump hired security. As a former President you will never be exactly a private citizen again.

11. They mention Rod Rosenstein in the article, that he suggested issuing the 25th Ammendment

to remove the buffoon out of office, which we know it will not happen unless something extraordinary occurs.

The same Rod Rosenstein who betrayed the trust of USA citizens by cutting the legs of the Muller investigation, the same Rod Rosenstein who drooled while thanking the buffoon for their "enlightened conversations"...Geez, I wish I was a writer to be able to understand how they will make sense of all this circus.

13. Just to rub their noses in it...

I expect him to announce that he has made a business deal with Russia to build a new Trump Tower in Moscow. And dare anyone to do anything about it.

15. All Trump has done is to say the quiet part of the GOP long game out loud.

The GOP is working hand in hand with Trump to destroy the Biden presidency before it starts. They are already well along.

16. Trump should have been arrested and removed from office months ago

It is still not too late to do it right now. Might save a few lives.

17. My money's on what was with all those

Pentagon replacements.

How about a little insurrection on Jan 21? It would be very confusing. Who has power? Who has the means to enforce that power?

I wonder if the worst is yet to come.
