and perhaps we know why he's been particularly unhinged of late...

Gronk knows more than Trump about climate change. About everything, probably. He looks like a Rhodes scholar next to Trump.

There aren't even any words for how embarrassing that is, that our President uttered that nonsense. And it's not as if it's a one time thing.

Well... I dunno if I'd go THAT far.

My take on Donnie Ballgame.

He is an intelligent person. Some people use their smarts to cure disease, or to send rockets into space. Some use it to teach or coach. Some are janitors at MIT and solve equations at night.

Others are criminals and con men.

And when one's been in the con business since before you were even out of high school, and has been as successful in the confidence game as anyone maybe ever? It's all you know. Add in a touch of early onset dementia, and the fear of it all... and I do mean ALL... crumbling down around you? bada bing bada boom you've got this quivering mess.

Imagine if your entire being was a lie, and has been for 60+ years.

Now imagine everything built on this lie - your business, your fortune, your children, your reputation - is under the microscope and about to collapse like the house of cards that it is.

That the stress and anxiety of it all hasn't already caused him to stroke out as actually impressive. I'm considering switching to an all KFC and diet Coke diet.

He plead guilty to lying to Congress.

Are we to assume this was planned now that Mueller has Trump’s written answers in hand?

I'll give Trump credit that he is smart as a con man. But I also think that says far more about those he's been able to con than it can ever say about him.

I find his non street smarts/con smarts to be nonexistent. He does have a PhD in spewing crap that makes no sense and is not rooted in any intelligent thought whatsoever. Gronk resembles the remark that he has zero intelligence.

That is certainly what I'm assuming

Think back before Donald Trump became president, a nominee, or even a right wing mouthpiece spewing hate filled conspiracy theories.

Go back to the beginnings of The Apprentice.

Did you think he was anything other than a brash but successful real estate developer?

He's conned well more than just "his base" to get to where he is. His status as a right wing icon is a recent development.

He's conned people into believing he was successful since the 80s - his family before that. He's a casa nostra version of Bernie Madoff.

Oh I know all that. When I say con I mean he's been that from the very beginning. Womb, silver spoon, "small loan" from Daddy...then con job 24/7.

Narcissists spend their whole lives conning and the rest is worrying that people will figure that out. And lashing out at, bullying, and worse at those who do figure it out.

It’s all starting to unravel.

My hope is he doesn’t burn the country down or that world out of spite

He actually just said there was nothing wrong with pursuing business deals in Russia during the election, because what if he didn't win the election?
