    ...That wild claims are not strategic, but worse."

    That from Adam Schiff, ranking minority member of the House Intelligence Committee.


    https://twitter.com/RepAdamSchiff/status/838769380104224769

    As a follow up, Schiff said:

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/opin...-card-d:homepage/story&utm_term=.06df06d0c4d7

    This is something everyone has to consider.

    The "madness" of Donald Trump may not be signs of a grand strategy...but of actual madness.

    Having Trump detractors recognize and acknowledge this problem is NOT enough. People high in the GOP...and otherwise supporters of the man have to be engaged.

    Or...we just wait for a crisis...and see where this nonsense on the part of the chief exectutive leads us.

    Imagine...in one corner: Donald Trump. In the other: Kim Jong-un.

    How did we get to this?

    Mark Shields wrote a recent column on this very issue.

    When the "word" of the POTUS can't be taken seriously, it affects the entire political balance of the civilized world.

    Trump has turned the USA into a worldwide laughing stock

    His "word" means nothing.

    And, that makes the world a much more dangerous place.

    I frequently ask myself whether Trump tempers his responses to reflect whatever the addressed audience wants to hear in order to boost his favorability, or if this is an actual case of undiagnosed cognitive dissonance in a world leader.

    Nobody else worried???

    Trump may not be the sharpest knife in the drawer but at least he hasn't had to be shoved into a van like a side of beef like Hillary. I can't find the video on YouTube anymore it's been scrubbed.

    What liberals have to one day learn is that by talking down at people, instead of talking TO them, and continuously insulting them on the basis of who they support or how high their perceived level of intelligence or education may be, will never produce productive dialogue or lead to solutions of any problems.

    One day conservatives will take liberals seriously, but only after riots, violence, protests with vagina hats, crying, safe spaces, safety pins and attacks on anything disagreed with are ended. Radical division will never be a winning tactic.

    While funny, this is also true to the core...

    With sooo many Dems still refusing to accept Trump has been duely elected as POTUS ... why do you imagine that WE must accept anything delusional liberals espouse? #NotMyPsychoAnalyst

    I love your guys hysteria, much like when I loved your pre-election threads.

    In 2018 the Republicans are taking the Democrats to the woodshed again.

    Ah, fun times.

    Trump's mind, is simply one that should not be in office as POTUS.

    If he's unfit, where does that put the losers he kicked to the curb? Garbage grade, unfit to be dog-catchers?

    The "inexperienced fool" cleaned their clocks- and did it with 1/3rd the money and 1/3rd the staff, totally unprecedented in history. Not bad for a fool.

    We lost the health plans we liked.
    We lost the doctors we liked.
    The plans, all of which covered pre-existing conditions, dropped hospitals that treated the most expensive of those conditions.
    We were spied on by our own government.
    AG Holder set out to murder Americans in order to kill the 2nd Amendment, lied to Congress and got away with it.
    SOS Clinton, confirmed the day after inauguration 2009, sold our foreign policy to the highest bidder. She was confirmed immediately despite the 1996 Clinton campaign being fined by the FEC to the tune of $719,000 for peddling influence to China, Korea, Canada, etc.
    AG Lynch worked a cash deal with Bubba on the tarmac during the investigation of Hillary --- which should have but didn't include peddling our foreign policy as SOS.

    You guys are losing the center and abandoning any working class whatsoever white/blue collar. As the party and its base swing ever further to the fringe you lose ground.

    Trump has a tremendous chance to coalesce the middle. I think its great you guys can't see it. It has allowed America to see your true colors.

    It isn't a prediction, it becomes more certain by the day.

    We are amidst a political realignment, get with the program, change your tactics or you will be vaporized by a red wave. I have seen no self-autopsy from the left. Still have Pelosi, and I'm sure your DNC chair is not corrupt at all.

    Yeah, those with the cap limits, the ones that if you didn't read the fine print, only covered you under certain circumstances. Right!

    That's more an issue with your doctor. Did you ever bother to ask him/her?

    Because the hospitals refused to negotiate with the insurers, you want to blame who?

    This is so laughable, it's beyond pathetic!

    He's stealing from the poor and the middle to give tax breaks to the rich. This is the blue collar saviour you guys wanted?

    Obama and Democrats who sold the pre-existing condition bull as yet another entitlement. Abuse your body, smoke, drink, eat your twinkies --- that's OK, people who take care of themselves will pick up the tab ,,, the same way that people who work pick up the tab for people who choose not to work. The twinkie crowd: yet another Democrat constituency.

    Well I'm going to give the guy a chance, you can't really to expect the guy to be a Democrat most of his life and then at the drop of a hat become even 80% sane! Sometimes the journey back from the realm of delusion is never realized and keep that in mind with Trump! But the up side is, if he cant shake the old days and mental disorders he has the democratic party and plenty of folks waiting for him to return ;)

    Your post assumes that I'm a Democrat which I'm not it's pretty obvious that the Democrats abandoned their blue-collar base to globalization but you making assumptions like you do makes your post pretty irrelevant and pretty pointless

    Thanks everyone for your opinions so far.

    I think Donald Trump is in WAY over his head...and that our country will suffer for his failings. The jury is still out for me on whether or not he is actually bonkers...although I lean toward his narcissism has pushed him over that edge.

    We all will see...and I suspect many of the fools who voted for him will regret doing so before long.

    He was wrong about the birther thing, wrong about wiretapping, wrong about Cruz's father, wrong about the murder rate. In fact, a majority of the things he says are pulled from his rear or unreliable sources. He either lacks a grasp on reality, or he habitually lies to get his way.
