As President Trump is a mentally ill man, and because Narcissistic Personality Disorder is particularly pernicious, I knew at some point he would break down. I knew that the pressures of a real job and the sizable responsibilities that come with it would eventually get the better of him.
I just didn’t know he would crater so soon. After only forty four days.
President Trump on Saturday angrily accused former president Barack Obama of orchestrating a “Nixon/Watergate” plot to tap the phones at his Trump Tower headquarters last fall in the run-up to the election.
Citing no evidence to support his explosive allegation, Trump said in a series of five tweets sent Saturday morning that Obama was “wire tapping” his New York offices before the election in a move he compared to McCarthyism. “Bad (or sick) guy!” he said of his predecessor, adding that the surveillance resulted in “nothing found.”
I know what you’re thinking. ‘How can he say that without any evidence? He’s the president for gods’s sake.’ This is how mental illness works. Being president is getting to him. He’s unraveling.
Trump offered no citations nor did he point to any credible news report to back up his accusation, but he may have been referring to commentary on Breitbart and conservative talk radio suggesting that Obama and his administration used “police state” tactics last fall to monitor the Trump team.
It’s not easy being both the most amazingest person who ever lived and a public servant with the hardest job in the world. Somebody call him a psychiatrist, quick.
