Recent unhinged rants have raised questions about Trump’s mental state.
“I don’t know his father. I met him once. I think he’s a lovely guy. I think he’s a lovely guy. All I did was point out the fact that on the cover of the National Enquirer there was a picture of him and crazy Lee Harvey Oswald having breakfast. Now, Ted never denied that it was his father. Instead, he said Donald Trump—I had nothing to do with it. This was a magazine that, frankly, in many respects should be very respected.”
Hayes wrote: “The Republican nominee for president made comments Friday that one might expect from a patient in a mental institution, the kind of stuff you might read on a blog with really small print and pictures of UFOs.”
Other conspiracies Trump has embraced include speculation that Antonin Scalia’s death was suspicious and that Hillary Clinton murdered Vince Foster. What conspiracy theories might he embrace and act on in the Oval Office, Hayes wonders.
- David Brooks: Trump “appears haunted by multiple personality disorders,” David Brooks wrotein his column following the Democratic Convention. While Brooks seemed a bit frantic about the downfall of his mythical Republicans who are supposedly filled with some genuine Christian spirit, he almost seemed to feel sorry for Trump.
“He is a morally untethered, spiritually vacuous man who appears haunted by multiple personality disorders,” Brooks wrote. “It is the ‘sane’ and ‘reasonable’ Republicans who deserve the shame — the ones who stood silently by, or worse, while Donald Trump gave away their party’s sacred inheritance.”
