    I'm sticking with my character description of Trump as an "odd-ball." That's what I called him before he ran for president and while he was running. If there's anything more I can think to say about it, it's that he's consistently odd.

    The laugh to me is why you would call me out for "defending" Trump when I'm criticizing him for being odd.

    "Odd" doesn't necessarily have a negative meaning. If normal is bad(which in at least the the last 20 years i would say could be the case), odd could be good.

  • Well now we're just mincing words. In all my life I never heard anyone compliment someone by calling them "odd."

  • Sorry, but we are talking about the mental incapacity of the president. We are told that he has difficulty understanding cause and effect relationships; the he demands immediate gratification; that he binges on TV while ignoring any and all policy details; that he doesn't read anything period, that he repeats himself every ten minutes, that he makes up his own reality which frequently does not reflect the factual world. "Odd" just doesn't quite capture it.

    Now, you could probably say that Pence is "odd" because he will not allow himself to be alone with a woman, other than his immediate family, or so we are told. Although that could become fashionable in the #Me Too era.  Still, there just seems to be this huge definitional (sic) gap between the two "odds."

    I spent seven years of my recent life monitoring, assisting, and managing the affairs of two people who were in a state of mental decline from independence to full on dementia. That ended a year and a half ago. It's not pretty and it's irreversible. If the president is suffering this decline--and there is considerable evidence that he is--he is a danger to the world and he needs better care than he is getting. Right now, he needs somebody to level with him.

    The lengths some people will go to deny reality amazes me. You have completely missed the boat on this. I am talking about replacing Trump with Mike Pence. I can't imagine anything worse from a political perspective.

    No, we are not, Steven. The information is coming from Trump's own advisers. These are the people quoted on the record in Fire and Fury and off the record in the Washington Post, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, etc.

  • Yeah, well. The truth stings some times!

    Has anyone gotten the book yet?

    I have 2 on my docket to finish before I buy another book. I'm currently on "Bobby Kennedy: A Raging Spirit" by Chris Matthews. Its an amazing read!

    Solon, looks like to me we both adequately accept reality. What you see and what I see as reality are purely our own personal perceptions. What you are saying here is that if I don't agree with how you see it, then I'm denying how it really is. That's condescending. I'm entitled to my own opinion of how I see things just as you or anyone else here. If a President doesn't behave the way you think he should, then he has mental health issues. If a poster doesn't agree with you then they deny reality. Good grief.

    I know very well what you are talking about, and I believe we are on a sailboat of your making. For some reason you keep rowing against the wind. It might be good exercise, but it doesn't change much.

    Not that I disgree, but what is your source or reasoning for that?

    1. I have lots of information to back my belief that Trump is unfit and dangerous--specifically comments from the people who work with him on a daily basis.

    2. Because of that information, I am prepared to replace Trump with someone who POLITCALLY would be worse. Whereas Trump is incompetent and not particularly ideological, Pence would be efficient, effective, and accomplish much more of the conservative Republican agenda than Trump. I am willing to live with that because of No.1

    3. My comment that you "missed the boat" was your statement that indicated my desire to replace Trump was entirely political when in fact I am prepared to replace him with Pence who, in my opinion, would be far more detrimental to the political programs I favor.

    4. If I follow your last point--in the end it won't happen and all the hand-wringing won't change a thing. That I agree with completely.

  • Solon - we all know that if Mike Pence was president you would be saying the same things about him as you are Trump.
