President Donald Trump’s aides and confidants are concerned about his mental state after days of erratic behaviour and wild outbursts.
“His mood changes from one minute to the next based on some headline or tweet, and the next thing you know his entire schedule gets tossed out the window because he’s losing his s—,” one former White House official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal conversations about the president, told Insider.
Trump has spent the past several days fixated on his false claim that Alabama was going to be hit by Hurricane Dorian. He has also taken time to lob attacks at his perceived enemies, like the actress Debra Messing, former FBI Director James Comey, and the “LameStream media.”
“He’s deteriorating in plain sight,” one Republican strategist who is in frequent contact with the White House told Insider on Friday.
But one person who was close to Trump’s legal team during the Russia investigation told Insider his public statements were “nothing compared to what he’s like behind closed doors.”
“He’s like a bull seeing red,” this person added. “There’s just no getting through to him, and you can kiss your plans for the day goodbye because you’re basically stuck looking after a 4-year-old now.”
President Donald Trump’s aides and confidants are growing more and more worried about his mental state after days of erratic behaviour, wild outbursts, and bizarre fixations.
“No one knows what to expect from him anymore,” one former White House official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal conversations about the president, told Insider.
They added: “His mood changes from one minute to the next based on some headline or tweet, and the next thing you know his entire schedule gets tossed out the window because he’s losing his s—.”
You know we have been hearing this same narrative for well over a year now, but I think this last week really made it obvious to just about everyone.
Even the casual Trump watcher could not help but see the lunacy that inspired him to double, triple, and even quadruple down on his assertion that Alabama was in danger from Hurricane Dorian.
And that continued even today.
…FAKE NEWS. I would like very much to stop referring to this ridiculous story, but the LameStream Media just won’t let it alone. They always have to have the last word, even though they know they are defrauding & deceiving the public. The public knows that the Media is corrupt!

Keep in mind that dozens of psychiatrists broke long-standing protocol to publicly assert that Trump is mentally ill.
That is not the kind of thing that those people do unless they feel it is absolutely vital to get that message out to the people who can protect the country from a crazy commander-in-chief.
But is there somebody who can really protect us?
Because right now it seems as if there is nobody capable of reining this lunatic in or keeping us safe from his erratic behaviors.
If that is not keeping you up at night then you are simply not paying attention.
