Former Trump aide says president “in severe mental decline”Posted by Robert Leonard / September 8, 2019
Anthony Scaramucci, who held the position of White House communications director for a whopping eleven days before being fired, believes that “Trump is in severe mental decline” and “won’t make it” to the next election. He says that Trump’s mental state is much worse than it was when Scaramucci last saw him.
“He’s in full-blown meltdown,” Scaramucci said, “it’s like the episodes of Chernobyl where the reactor’s melting down and people are trying to figure out whether they’re going to cover it up or clean it up. I predict he won’t make it to that election; there’s such severe mental decline going on that the most likely outcome here, and I think the proudest outcome, would be to say ‘OK I did a great job, and I’m going to retire at the end of the term.’”
Perhaps this is why the Republican Party plans to cancel GOP presidential primaries and caucuses in four states. If South Carolina, Nevada, Arizona, and Kansas do indeed cancel their primaries, they may effectively kill the chances of Trump’s challengers, who might do a bit better if Trump is obviously insane.
The GOP has responded by saying that the party of the incumbent president often cancels primaries, but Trump’s challengers are not having it. Former Rep. Joe Walsh, one of those challengers, said that “Trump and his allies and the Republican National Committee are doing whatever they can do to eliminate primaries in certain states and make it very difficult for primary challengers to get on the ballot in a number of states. It’s wrong, the RNC should be ashamed of itself, and I think it does show that Trump is afraid of a serious primary challenge because he knows his support is very soft.”
