More turmoil in the White House continues to cast doubt on Donald Trump’s leadership. Start with the firings of FBI Deputy Director, Andrew McCabe, and Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson. McCabe’s potentially unfavorable testimony before a grand jury convened by Special Counsel, Robert Mueller, doomed him. Trump has now fired two top FBI officials, including Director, James Comey, to protect himself from Mueller’s Russia investigation.
Due to various tweets and statements, many bordering on the outrageous, the issue of Donald Trump’s competence has been discussed frequently on social media and in various media publications.
I’m sure you have heard or read the comments: “Trump is insane”. Trump is senile” and even “Trump has a special type of VD which causes men to act erratically”.
Then, there is the frequent comments saying bluntly, “Donald Trump is stupid”.
Some say one man’s madness is another man’s strategy. Vanity Fair is calling it “Moron-gate,” except the dotard in the cupboard isn’t Donald Trump, it’s Rex Tillerson who takes the dunce cap for his flip, petty, slap at the President, by calling Trump a “moron,” for one thing, or another. If “Moron-in-Chief” becomes as quintessentially defining of President Trump as “Crooked Hillary” is of his nemesis, it’s on Tillerson.
Last night, President Donald Trump spoke to the nation about his new strategy in Afghanistan. The reviews were somewhat mixed. Some felt he was "wagging the dog" due to a horrendous past week as President, trying to divert attention to the world stage and away from the issue of race, bigotry and Charlottesville. Others felt he finally stepped up to the position. Still, others, particularly Breitbart followers felt he betrayed his campaign promise and is only getting American involved in greater combat and investment of American blood and treasure.
