I wish I could agree. But I can’t. He is a raging narcissist asshole. He isn’t even a real republican and a moron on top of all that. He is a repugnant ass clown that I’m still shocked my party put in office. But I’m also not surprised given that he ran on a middle finger, low information, easily digested campaign promise. It is the same stupid shit that democrats swallow up.
He may be a “republican” which makes him only slightly less worse of a choice than democrats, but I don’t think he is more sane than some of the democrats.
He's like a near opposite of all those PNAC folks the left was railing against during W time. His budgets are way out of balance. He's not a military adventure guy. He support tariffs. These are not traditional Republican positions.
Yet he has remarkably consistent behaviors and has had them his whole career. He is a speculator, a self promoter, an entertainer, a publicity hound. These may seem like strange things for a Republican to be, but they are not signs of insanity. He loves pulling off impossible deals. Got elected, didn't he? His failures don't bother him. Plenty of those. He says things to get attention and create buzz. And you guys fall for it all the time. I don't like most of these qualities, but I am not stupid enough to call them signs of mental illness.
