Unfit indeed.

There is something very wrong with him.

7. His unfitness is exactly why the extreme right wants him.

They are slavering over the idea that someone absolutely unfit will take over our government and completely destroy everything that our country is.

They really do hate America and want to force some kind of anarchic oligarchy that no country has ever had.

Of course they are too stupid to realize this.
They think this society will be one that will provide them personally with absolute freedom and wealth.

8. I hope he is their nominee.

He would be the easiest candidate to beat. He has very extremist positions on the issues, very little charisma, and almost no knowledge of how government operates. He makes Sarah Palin seem like Plato in comparison.

10. Bingo, someone finally got it.

That should have been evident since shortly after he came out of the wood work. That is the hallmark of the current crop of Republicans. They'll tell you what they think you want to hear, regardless of what they said a few minutes before to someone else. No qualms, self-made (up) reality as they go along.

16. Yep -

"They'll tell you what they think you want to hear, regardless of what they said a few minutes before to someone else"- and then they'll double down when it's pointed out.

12. All of them running for the republican nomination are a bunch of

frigging jokers. Imagine Trump running against Mrs. Clinton. I hope he gets his ass handed to him 'you are fired' from getting the rethug nomination.

Gawd, American politics right now is like a circus, the greatest country on earth are running these fools!

14. I know a lot of doctors learn to look at dead bodies with scientific detachment

It helps them cope with the horror of it. But it doesn't sound like that was ever a problem for this guy.

15. He's just creepy. Does anyone else see this?

When I see him on the teevee, he closes his eyes a lot. Every time I see it, I think how frightening it would be to have him introduced as the man who's going to operate on my brain...."wait, this guy who's going to use tools in my brain, can't keep his eyes open when he thinks? RUN AWAY!"

all the world's firearms combined.

What an asshole this Carson stooge is.

19. Noah Ponzer took 11 bullets at Sandy Hook.

Maybe the Dumbest Doctor in America can chew on this:

You’ll probably remember Noah. He was a happy little guy with beautiful heavily lashed eyes and a cheerful smile. In his coffin, there was a cloth placed over the lower part of his face.

“There was no mouth left,” his mother told the Forward. “His jaw was blown away.”

She put a stone in his right hand, a “clear plastic rock with a white angel inside.” She wanted to put a matching stone in his left hand but he had no left hand to speak of.

Parents of the dead children were advised to identify them from photographs, such was the carnage. But every parent reacts differently. Veronique Pozner did the most difficult thing. She asked to see the body. Zeveloff asked her why.

“I owed it to him as his mother, the good, the bad and the ugly,” she said. “. . . And as a little boy, you have to go in the ground. If I am going to shut my eyes to that I am not his mother. I had to bear it. I had to do it.”

23. Oh god, I can't imagine what it must have been like for her.

 

I remember his sweet little face. There was something about him in particular that touched me so much. How horrific!

Every politician should have been forced to observe the carnage at Sandy Hook. That should have been the end of this sick proliferation of firearms, but no. This nation is seriously f***ed up when it comes to guns.

I really feel like I am going mad sometimes.
