Is Donald Trump Unhinged?

President Donald Trump

There is something really scary going on with Donald Trump, the president of the United States.

We know he has issues dealing with facts.

We believe he may be incapable of understanding what his position as the president entails.

But now experts say he may be lacking the intelligence necessary to carry out his responsibilities.

“Somehow, he does not appear to understand the difference between facts and fantasies, between reality and make-believe,” a Houston, TX based psychologist told us this week. “Trump seems to be confusing what is actually going on around him with what he believes is going on,” she continued.

We decided to explore this further after reading president Trump’s recent tweets accusing the Democratic National Committee (DNC) of colluding with Russian intelligence during the 2016 presidential elections.

U.S. Intelligence officials believe Russian President Vladimir Putin directed the Russian intelligence to hack into Democrats email accounts, and worked with WikiLeaks to release damaging information in his bid to help elect Donald Trump.

“Despite mounting evidence to the contrary, Trump believes that Putin and WikiLeaks were working for Hillary Clinton and the Democrats? Really?” the Houston, TX based psychologist asked in reference to Trump’s tweets.

“So did the Democrats collude with Putin and Russian intelligence to hack their own email accounts then release damaging information about the Clinton campaign and the DNC to the public? Why? To help Hillary Clinton win the election? That does not make sense,” she continued.

FBI director James Comey confirmed during a recent public hearing before the House Intelligence Committee that the FBI is looking into alleged connections between top Trump campaign officials and Russia during the campaign.

President Trump, it appears, may not have the capacity to fully appreciate the meaning of that.

In his recent tweet storm, Trump calls the U.S. media “fake”.

“When will the Fake Media ask about the Dems dealings with Russia & why the DNC wouldn’t allow the FBI to check their server or investigate?” he tweeted, after calling Obamacare “a lie.”

He insults federal judges he disagrees with and is on record as saying he will like to remove those judges.

As the U.S. president, you ought to know better.

He said it will be a “pleasure” to meet with the belligerent leader of North Korea Kim Jong-un, invited the leader of The Philippines Rodrigo Duterte, a known murderer, to officially visit the White House and called to congratulate the President of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Edrogan for winning an election the whole world knows was not free or fair.

At the same time, he insults our allies South Korea, Japan, Mexico and Canada, among others.

U.S. presidents simply do not act this way.

Trump seems incapable of making sense of his position or even understanding the expectations Americans have of their president.

So the question must be asked: Is Trump unhinged? Is he capable of making the decisions expected of U.S. presidents? Does he have the ability to think logically?

The jury is still out. Let’s hope he does not lead the U.S. into another world war before his term officially ends in early 2021. Or before he gets impeached.
