Donald Trump was elected on the premise that he would “clean the swamp” and have the leverage to be a new force in Washington with no political ties — a true new-age superhero.
Well, he replaced the swamp with a cesspool of impulsive, immature, uneducated tweets supporting neo-nazis and whatever other random thoughts crossed his troubled mind. Even Fox news, a bastion of “support Trump at any cost”, is stating the obvious. There’s something wrong and dangerous about this man.
Also, a bevy of courageous republicans are finally speaking out against this immature, uneducated bully. Yes, I know he attended the University of Pennsylvania Wharton School of Business, but “so sad”, he only learned how to toot his own twisted horn.
Maybe a new superhero will emerge? This one will have his/her brain connected to his cerebrum rather than his tongue.
If you enjoyed reading, Inside the Mind of a Psychiatrist, you might also enjoy Dr. Smukler’s novels, Chasing Backwards, a psychological murder mystery, Skin Dance, a mystery, and The Man with a Microphone in his Ear. All are available as paperbacks and eBooks.

I agree he is a lunatic……and that’s being complimentary. The problem I see is that there are too many spineless and worthless members of Congress on Mitch’s and Ryan’s side of the aisle to do the right thing and create the new Ben & Jerry’s flavor called “im-peach-mint”.
That’s why I suggested the Goldwater rule as a potentially quicker course to resolution.
Very good article. I admire your restraint. Ed
A lot of restraint! Thanks
This would be quicker than Congress.
Remember the Goldwater Rule. Unless a mental health professional has examined and diagnosed a person, the professional can only express an opinion. If he/she has examined and diagnosed the individual, the mental health professional can then declare the person unfit for the job/position.
Time to volunteer, Art. Washington is hot and muggy this time of year. 🙂
The Goldwater Rule in my mind is inapplicable when a lunatic threatens our survival. Thanks!
