But it ain’t Trump who’s come unglued.
As the president’s approval rating hovers at or near its highs in polls from the Wall St. Journal/NBC News and Rasmussen and Special Counsel Robert Mueller is prosecuting decade-old crimes against Paul Manafort that are unrelated to the 2016 election, Trump’s critics are powerless to do anything other than increase the outrageousness and the volume of their claims.
Mika Brzezinski, the co-host of “Morning Joe,” is a case in point. This week, she looked into the camera with all of the gravitas she could muster and claimed Donald Trump “is not well.” It got worse from there.
She continued: “The president of the United States is completely unhinged and getting worse by the day.” She urged viewers to try and find someone who would tell them that Trump’s “mental state has not deteriorated radically over the past few years…” But you don’t have to take someone else’s word for it—just watch his interviews and speeches and judge for yourself.
You could be excused for wondering if Mika and Joe are on vacation and this is a re-run since this line of attack is just a revival of last year’s failed trope that “Trump is crazy and we have to remove him from office using the 25th Amendment.” It didn’t work then and a year on it just seems stale.
By pivoting back to the old 25th Amendment line of attack, Democrats and their media allies reveal something important: they have a weak hand and they know it.
The Mueller investigation is going nowhere because he has nothing and, deep down, Democrats and their anti-Trump Republican fellow travelers and enablers know that, too. If he did, he’d have produced it already. At a minimum, he would have leaked it to an eager, compliant press corps. But he doesn’t and he hasn’t.
This strikes fear in the hearts of sober Democrat strategists who realize the party has spent nearly two years and all of its political capital investing in a fantasy.
Wait, you’re saying there ARE some?
All indications say that Trump is having himself a pure-tee ball kicking Democrat Socialist ass and restoring the nation. Meanwhile, as the man says, the Dem-Soc swamp rats in their desperation are reduced to recycling pitiful stratagems that failed once already. No wonder Trump is having such a good time toying with them. I’m certainly having a good time watching him do it, and poking fun at them from here. But hey, I’m spiteful and filled with hate like that.
