Senior White House official: “The president’s insane.”

In the Guardian today, Martin Pengelly reviews the forthcoming book The Enemy of the People by CNN correspondent Jim Acosta, and there are some doozy quotes from the book, which HarperCollins has scheduled for release on June 11. Pengelly writes that Acosta’s White House sources:

are often blunt in their assessment of their boss. A “senior White House official” tells Acosta: “The president’s insane.” A “former White House national security official” says staffers were not sure the president had not been “compromised” by Russia.

Well, duuuhhhh. The White House staff knows Trump is crazy, completely dishonest, and likely a Russian asset. But they still want to be there. They still work every day for their spoiled and demented would-be tyrant, so that they can — do what? get rich? gain power? satisfy their other deep cravings?

Whatever it is these staffers want, we have to make sure they don’t get it once Trump goes down in flames.

Not only do we need to make sure those “staffers” don’t get what they want, we need to make sure they get their full measure of accountability as well.

Only in America would we allow an insane fruit cake run the country. When is somebody step up and say enough is enough. This country is a total disgrace in the eyes of the world.

Enough is enough. The only thing that will change what is going on is to hopefully get to November 2020 (without another war) and vote the asshole AND ALL REPUBLICANS out of office. Then get rid of the Electoral College.

Most of know he’s insane ,as is many around him . .. But he must be removed before anymore damage is done to our country … Even
Republicans must understand this … But they seem powerless , because they are scared of Trump. They put “TRUMPS party “,before country . They have become “gutless wonders”.

My thought is that the reason so many GOP are “afraid” of the Dump, is that many of them, particularly Mitch McConnell, is as deep into the swill of this administration that they know if Trump goes down, they all go down so they keep trying to protect him to protect themselves.

What is it going to take to wake up the ineffective GOP Senate to the fact that their “dear leader” and M. McConnell are probably both Russian assets and as such are both TRAITORS. Maybe when fellow dictator Kim Jong (sp) launches a nuclear bomb at Washington DC???? Also, a little civics lesson. The Senate DOES NOT NEED an OK from M. McConnell to act. They can simply override anything he says or does. So, they are complicit in what is going down in DC
