    Does Trump Have Dementia or is He A Genius?

    I have been following the rise of Donald Trump to the Presidency with great interest and horror for the past 2 years.

    Let me first state my premise (I know it's an opinion).

    I contend that Trump got into the Presidential race with no intention of winning. He spent next to no money of his own, used his celebrity status for exposure, did free media all the time and only "borrowed" his own money to fund his campaign. He had every understanding that he'd lose.

    The more outrageous his statements, the more popular he got. While 16 other Republicans all sounded like one another, Trump comes off different to the average voter, and different is good enough to win primaries with 30% of the Republican vote.

    Shockingly to every political pundit, himself included, he won the Republican nomination. He knows he can't win the general election, but he is as entertaining as hell to the main stream media and to a large group of voters who "hate politicians and the government". No normal political operative signs on with Trump. The hangers on are Russian political operatives, his family members and extreme crazies. He knowingly colludes with the Russians, not to win the election, but just to keep it close and not get embarrassed.

    I firmly believe if Trump was left with a choice on November 8th, 2016, of winning the popular vote and losing the Electoral College, thus Hilary becomes President and he can be the victim of the system, he would have rather have that scenario. He had every intention of starting Trump TV with Hannity, O'Reilly, Gorka, Bannon and the like in his network.

    Again shocked, he wins the election. But now, all that throwing of caution to the wind comes back to haunt him. His closest friends, his family and even himself now have to answer for the Russian Collusion they participated in. If he'd lost, it most likely would have been overlooked. But he won, and now the shit hits the fan.

    He expected the Republicans, who control the Senate and House, to protect him from any investigation. His hand picked Attorney General, he expects, will do the same. All fail him. Hence, the anger at Mitch, Jeff and Paul.

    Don Jr. appears today. Trump finds out that he can't pardon anyone for state charges, only Federal. Everyone he knows and likes is at risk and the Republicans are no help, not even his own appointees.

    He knows the Democrats are policy driven. He painted himself in a corner with the 3 month extension on purpose. He wants to play ball with the Democrats. He wants the Democrats to have leverage. He's hoping that the Dems, after getting DACA, Taxes and Obamacare fixes, that we will realize that we are much better off with him for 3 and half more years, than with Mike Pence.

    This strategy probably won't work, but it's the only one he's got. It's a Machiavellian, triangulation political move that could only be pulled off by a genius.

    Either that, or Trump is suffering from Dementia.

    2. There may be something to the dementia thing...

    It could be it is not very advanced. He only has bad episodes so far, and yesterday was one of them. This is why Ivanka came in and broke up the meeting, she knew Daddy was not as focused as usual and why she went to SD with him. She did not want to go to SD, she went to babysit.

    Now, that is not to say he is not a vindictive a hole, I believe that is a pre-existing condition with Trump.

    3. As Prez he expected oaths of loyalty from every corner including our intelligence community

    and since he was Prez everyone to give him a "chance" including voters and media and overlook all his crimes and racists actions.

    He thought he'd be UNTOUCHABLE!

    Also he thought his every thought, ask & farts to be turned into the laws of the land instantaneously.

    and all foreign leaders to kiss his ass.

    He thought he would not have any checks and balances.

    he thought he invite Russians to weekly dinners and heck give them some WH oversight and voters rolls.
    They're creative, all right. But that's ALL they have.

    From my post on the Cave:

    Does Trump Have Dementia or is He A Genius? He's skillfully led Progs and the MSM into being openly utterly loony. It's genius.

    I have been following the rise of Donald Trump to the Presidency with great interest and horror for the past 2 years. Obviously perceiving little and learning less.
    ...
    I contend that Trump got into the Presidential race with no intention of winning. The way Trump campaigned, vigorously, contradicts this premise. He spent next to no money of his own ... Actually, he spent quite a bit of his own money, he just spent half as much as did HilLIARy ... used his celebrity status for exposure, did free media all the time ... Actually, the MSM normally cover various candidates significantly, but Trump baited the MSM into hatred and hysteria and they covered him much more than they ordinarily would have ... and only "borrowed" his own money to fund his campaign. He had every understanding that he'd lose. Trump's campaign - vigorous and strategically smart - contradicts this statement.
    For some reason, DU-grade Progs are constitutionally incapable or admitting that Trump, Bush, Bush, and Reagan are and were decent and intelligent human beings. This goes wa-a-a-aaay beyond a firmly believed worldview.
    I support UNexit: Get the US out of the UN; Get the UN out of the US!

    BIG CHEETO Is Watching You!

    Note to "Warpy": I voted for Donald Trump! I would do so again!
