“Trump Is So Unstable That His Advisers Have To Withhold Information From Him Or He Flips Out”


POLITICUS USA

“If you talk about Russia, meddling, interference — that takes the PDB off the rails,” said a second former senior U.S. intelligence official.

Trump can’t be given facts in the same manner as other presidents. Information has to be massaged or hidden from him to prevent the President from getting upset and blowing up. Trump is making life and death decision with inadequate information because if his advisers tell him the truth, he gets upset.

America needs a steady hand at the wheel, not a 71-year-old man baby who can’t handle the truth.” MORE

“Opinion: Failure, Sex, Lies And A Moron Are Destroying GOP”


POLITICUS USA

“The party of “family values” has fallen on hard times. The Republican Party as we know it has been transformed into the worst representation of government in our modern history. Led by a moral abomination, Donald Trump, the GOP has molded itself in the image of its inept leader and become fodder for late night comedy, resignations, impeachment and federal prison.

From the buffoonery of Donald Trump to the accusations of pedophilia against Alabama Judge Roy Moore, conservative politics are imploding, and everyone seems to understand that, except those in the middle of the meltdown. Denials, delusions, and lies are the new normal for the GOP as American citizens realize that the grand old party isn’t so grand anymore.” MORE

The Foreign Service officer corps at State has lost 60 percent of its Career Ambassadors since January. Ranks of Career Ministers, our three-star equivalents, are down from 33 to 19. The ranks of our two-star Minister Counselors have fallen from 431 right after Labor Day to 369 today — and are still falling.” MORE

“It Only Took Trump One Year To Trash America’s Global Reputation”


HUFFINGTON POST

“In the year since the Nov. 8, 2016 election, dread and anxiety around the world has only mounted with the realization that Trump doesn’t care for strategic alliances or multilateral solutions to global challenges. His is a zero-sum approach to world affairs in which the “winner” takes all and diplomacy is for losers.

The United States has become less respected under Trump, polls suggest, and as the president disdainfully discards the nation’s mantle of global leadership, erstwhile close allies are relying less on America and instead are going their own way.” MORE

“Crises like major weather disasters offer presidents the chance to unify the country and rise above partisan politics. Although a significant amount of aid work is done at the state and local levels, the president still has a major role in coordinating the response and setting the tone for the country.

But for Donald Trump, Hurricane Harvey has been a golden opportunity to promote himself.”  MORE
