Trump’s Mental State Was Just Called into Question — by His Own Son

It’s unlikely that even the oldest Americans have seen any White House administration embroiled in the kind of controversy and criticism that has been levied against Donald Trump.

Now, someone is speaking up about the toll the negative news has taken on the President. But who?

He was even getting it from incumbent President, Barack Obama, a year ago.

Namely with Rosie O’Donnell, Barack Obama, and even billionaire Mark Cuban.

It’s safe to say he’s the most criticized President ever, thanks to the information age.

It’s clear the situation is getting worse.

And he’s not just talking about the effect on his professional demeanor. He hinted at something far, far more troubling, stating:
“If they weren’t talking about you, you wouldn’t be doing something right and it’s important to keep it in context, otherwise quite frankly you’d probably end up killing yourself out of depression.”

Eric said in the interviews:
“It’s the media, the mainstream media, who does not want [the president] to succeed. It’s government who does not want him to succeed… No matter what he does, he’s going to get hit, and listen, I think you have to tune it out.”

Especially because criticism of Trump is based on his performance as President, whereas Donald himself is quick to brandish people “losers” or “fake” for questioning his governance. This could explain why Trump is fed positive news stories about himself several times a day.

Eric is right in saying that this criticism would take its toll on anyone, but it’s part of the job, and Trump has earned at least some of it.

It’s certainly not a laughing matter, if true, but it’s not coming as a surprise to many of his critics.

And the title doesn’t grant the titleholder automatic respect and admiration. But others think there’s even more at play.

While the insinuation that anyone is suffering from mental illness is a serious accusation, it’s a troubling thing to have to wonder if our President, the man with access to nuclear codes, is suffering from it.  

You can’t ignore the reality of your critics forever.

But only because they feel this might just be a sympathy-gathering tactic more than a real issue.

An insanity defense? An exit from office?

…only time will tell during these strange days.
