Ex-CIA head slams Trump delusion: He wanders between the real world and the world according to Trump

Source: Raw Story

Former CIA Director and former Sec. of Defense Leon Panetta is concerned that President Donald Trump is living in his own world.

In a Thursday interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, Panetta explained his recent quote in a New York Times interview that he has “never been so nervous in my lifetime about what may or may not happen in Washington.”

After spending 50 years in public service, Panetta told Blitzer that Trump’s press conference was a “remarkable display” of his fears.

“We are living in the world according to Trump,” Panetta said. “You know, it’s tough to gauge this president by a standard that has been set by past presidents. This is a president like no other president we’ve ever had and he wanders between the real world and the world according to Trump. I guess my concern is that at some point the president of the United States has to get very serious with the American people and with the press about the challenges we face and what this president is going to do to deal with those challenges. If he simply continues to engage in this kind of personal attack, counterattack to the press, this reality TV kind of presentation, what I worry about is that not enough time is going to be focused on the real crises and the real threats that the country faces.”

1. He's way too kind.

Trump's head is clearly planted up his own ass.

2. By which he means that Trump lives in his imaginary world, bumping occassionally into the real one.

The way he comports himself as President, for example, is his floating around in his dream world; the day the Armed Forces and Intelligence community invoke the 25th, that will be his bumping into the real one.

3. Putin has to be absolutely giddy right now.

Not only did he and Comey keep Hillary Clinton (who would have been a fierce opponent of Russia's) out of the White House, they managed to destabilize the USA and turn us into the laughingstock of the world.

6. Not a laughingstock, exactly.

We see you more like Freddie Krueger now.
Frankly, you're scaring the shit out of us.
Nobody's laughing any more.

5. Delusional Trump

When someone as qualified as Leon Panetta thinks you are dangerous and delusional, then you just might be. I really think that Trump suffers from Narcissism in the clinical sense. He is not fully in touch with reality, can't take criticism that offends his Narcissistic Personality, etc. I think that Trump is mentally incapacitated and not able to fulfill his duties. His Administration is a mess and is run by unqualified amateurs. Trump must be Impeached or Replaced.

7. I agree totally.

This is serious. It is even more bizarre than Nixon talking to the pictures to dead presidents. Trump is more dangerous as evidenced by his past. He is totally without a conscience and incapable of compassion. God help the nation. I hope that the young people awaken to their responsibility if they desire to have a future.
