Anatomy of a Tweet: This is What Psychological Terrorism and Probable Dementia Look Like

Let's play a new game: Who tweeted it: (A) POTUS from the White House in his bathrobe; or (B) Your demented racist uncle watching Fox from his recliner in his bathrobe? Actually, that's a boring game, at least in 2017 when the answer will always be (A).

I'm actually not kidding when I say I think Trump is at the beginning stages of honest-to-God dementia. To paraphrase Vladimir Cheetos himself, "many medical professionals are saying" that Trump's increasingly limited vocabulary, late-night wakefulness, impulsive irritability, and mouth tics are signs that his frontal lobe is on a downward trajectory and Congress should order a CT scan.

Until then, (i.e. indefinitely), we are going to have to contend with a semi-senile sociopath capable of shifting the geopolitical chessboard with one swipe of his tiny orange fingers from his unsecured Galaxy Note 7 at 3:00 a.m.

And what does that mean? 


Well, for one thing, it means that the President of the United States has declared the entire American legal system "broken" and that HE ALONE can make a "deal" for a preposterous WALL, not one meaningful brick of which will ever see the light of day. All to stoke the fear, gaslighting and domestic psychological terrorism that is the fuel of his so-called presidency.

It also means endorsing the circular logic that the legal system is "broken" because the travel ban that the legal system just overturned is being lifted from the same countries that . . . um . . . the ban applied to.

Seriously, this makes ZERO fucking sense. None of it.
