    Very deep. You can find plenty more anti-Trump graffiti here:

    No, I don't think you will be able to find anybody with a real degree from a real school that has a real career in the field of psychology to say Obama was or is unstable mentally because he isn't or wasn't full stop. Trump is crazy and it's on display when he tweets or when he opens his mouth.

    The world doesn't need convincing by me. A large percentage of Americans can see Trump is unfit for the Presidency and most of the rest of the world is just sitting back and shaking their head like WTF=Trump's an idiot.

    Unlike you, psychologists and psychiatrists know that the craziest people are often perfectly charming and Ďnormalí on the outside. Itís something they learn in first year psychology. Most people, like you, look at a person they donít understand, and conclude, ďHeís crazy.Ē Thatís a common thing to do. As a result they think most innovative people are crazy. This is why people are always oohing and aahing when mass murderers or evil torturers are arrested, because neighbors say, ďHe seemed perfectly normal to me. So nice, and like a perfect neighbor. I canít believe he ate 47 children.Ē

    So yes, all I need to do is find a large group of psychologists and psychiatrists who hate Obama, and get them to explain why they think heís crazy, and then I too have a book. Why donít I?

    The Fake News would give it bad reviews or simply not mention it, so publishers wonít publish it. It would thus be a waste of time writing. By contrast, any loony with a book about how Trump is crazy will get tons of Fake News coverage, so many publishers will publish. Money talks.

    In argumentation theory, an argumentum ad populum is a fallacious argument that concludes that a proposition is true because many or most people believe it: "If many believe so, it is so."

    Is it because they are crazy? I think it's because Trump's rhetoric appeals to the base and uneducated. They simply cannot discern rhetoric from reality.

    While the left has been outright attacking, the right wing has been primarily counter attacking.

    So, your experience is pointing you the wrong way. Which would mean that either you are lacking information or are interpreting things wrongly.
    So you're saying it was the left outright attacking in Charlottesville?

    3) If 1/3 of all Americans are dangerously crazy, we're all f***ed.

    I do not need a degree to recognize just how far gone Trump is.

    He is as mean and evil as they come.fixated on destroying everything President Obama accomplished. Many in Congress now understand just how sick and heartless he is.

    To watch Melania,stand behind him,laughing at his cruel jokes tells me she is as bad as he is, beyond that pretty face.
