Washington (Gallant Gold Media Hill Report | Opinion | April 8, 2019) – We’ve always known that Trump’s delusions impact his decision making. It no longer shocks anyone. And yet, what we’re now experiencing two plus years into the Trump presidency, is that without the multiple layers of advisors and adults, acting as filters to constrain Trump, he’s become unleashed, publicly demanding that Americans break laws he deems necessary in order to accomplish his agenda. Meanwhile, for anyone else who violates the law, it’s zero tolerance. Maximum punishment. No forgiveness.
At the border in Calexico, California on Friday April 5, 2019, Trump stunned border agents by telling them not to let migrants in, announcing our country is “full.” Trump underscored the point, by advising to a group that if a judge orders them to let migrants in, they should respond by stating, “Sorry, judge, I cannot do it. We don’t have the room.”
This shocker is in line with multiple similar examples across the past 27 months, one of which was outlined in Bob Woodward’s book, Fear: Trump in the White House. Trump, Mattis and several others were discussing the crisis in Syria, when Trump advised that he wanted to assassinate Assad. Mattis was unnerved, assessing that Trump’s understanding of national security was that of a “fifth or sixth grader.”
Similarly, Tillerson was so confounded by Trump’s lapse of discernment that he used to the word “moron” to describe Trump. John Kelley referred to Trump as “an idiot.” McMaster called Trump a “dope.” Again, Friday’s public display at the border in Calexico, CA seems to be a similar occurrence of what these past extreme frustrations were all about.
But now that so many “adults” have departed, and we’re left with too many unqualified acting secretaries, do they have the capacity to say “NO” to Trump? It’s alarming.
Trump seems incapable of comprehending that no matter how many border agents, how much technology, how many deterrents, how much money, nothing is ever 100%. We have nearly 850,000 sworn Federal, state, and local law enforcement officers in the United States and yet there’s still crime. There are 1.3 million active duty military, and yet there’s no peace. Over 3.6 million elementary and secondary teachers, yet too many students are uneducated.
Trump’s inability to process reality is taking it’s toll. We’re all watching and experiencing the fallout in painful slow motion. From the thousands of migrant families shattered, children caged, psychological trauma, 35 day shutdown, national emergency, troops to the border. It’s insane. Literally insane. Seriously, Friday in Calexico was proof positive of just how unfit Trump is. Two years of leaked red flags from accomplished leaders. And now, in our face, point blank, unfiltered. There’s no denying it. Trump is unhinged.
This is frightening.
