Former Trump Organization executive: Donald Trump is mentally ill, has been for decades

What happened when a renowned psychotherapist stated his professional view this week that Donald Trump is “dangerously mentally ill”? It set off a round of controversy, as the doctor in question has never treated Trump directly. But it also set off a round of confirmation, from other professionals and those who simply know him well. In response to the diagnosis in question, a former Trump Organization executive now says that it rings true with everything she knows about him, and that it’s been true for at least several decades.

It all began when Dr. John D. Gartner announced that in his view “Donald Trump is dangerously mentally ill” based on his visible symptoms, which was reported on by U.S. News & World Report. That led the New York Daily News to report that various other mental health professionals have the same view of Trump’s symptoms. This in turn led Barbara Res, who identifies herself as a former executive vice president of the Trump Organization, to reach out to the NYDN and offer her corroborating views based on her personal familiarity with Donald Trump.

Res is not medical professional. But she now says that she read a professionally published article on narcissism in the eighties, and came to the following conclusion: “Being the team who was charged with building Trump Tower, we all knew Donald Trump very well, especially myself. To a person, we all agreed that the characteristics outlined in the article fit Donald to a “T.” Now, 35 years later, professionals are saying what we knew back then. Only now he is so much worse.”

In other words, top mental health professionals believe Donald Trump is mentally ill based on his current visible symptoms, and one of his own former top execs is affirming that he’s had these same symptoms for decades. To be clear, millions of good natured Americans have various forms of mental illness, and they should not be stigmatized for it. However, Trump’s (presumably untreated) malignant narcissism makes him dangerous in the White House. Shamefully, he’s now using his position to put the health care benefits of mentally ill Americans at risk by trying to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

Insiders: Donald Trump’s crazy National Security Advisor Michael Flynn already self destructing

If you’ve lost track of just who Michael T. Flynn is in the midst of the other higher profile extremists dominating the Donald Trump administration, he’s the crazy former military guy who likes chanting “Lock Her Up” and was once disciplined because he leaked classified information — and he’s deeply tied to Russia. He’s since taken on the role of Trump’s National Security Advisor. But just ten days into the administration, Trump’s other top advisors are leaking that Flynn is already on the outs.

Impeach Trump Now

In a lengthy insider piece published by the New York Times this week which details just how much power Steve Bannon has assumed over the White House, the consistent focus of the piece is that Michael Flynn has quickly talked himself into being on the outs with Trump. The profile paints Flynn as being more or less unable to stop talking, to the point that his rambling answer during Trump’s meeting with British Prime Minister Theresa May left Trump embarrassed.

Not My President

Trump also fired Flynn’s son for spreading the false information which led to a near-shooting at a Brooklyn pizzeria. And various members of Trump’s brand new cabinet have grown so concerned with Flynn’s behavior that they’ve called meetings just to discuss Flynn’s behavior. Meanwhile, Flynn has supposedly been complaining that he no longer gets one on one face time with Trump since the inauguration.

One million to stop Trump

There are two equally important aspects of these revelations. One is that Donald Trump assembled a team largely consisting of corrupt, unqualified and unstable people because those were the only kind of people who wanted to be involved with his campaign to begin with – and now that these bad actors have job responsibilities, they’re flailing.

The other key item of note here is that one or more individuals within Trump’s team are so adamant about finishing off the already-wounded Flynn that they’ve made a point of leaking all of these embarrassing details to the New York Times. By revealing that Flynn already has one foot out the door, they’re helping to finish him of all the more quickly. It paints a picture of the Trump administration already operating along the lines of a metaphorical Game of Thrones.

Donald Trump didn’t realize Steve Bannon needs Senate confirmation for National Security Council

When Donald Trump decided that fake-news publisher and alt-right nazi Steve Bannon would be his White House Chief Strategist, he presumably chose that role so that the overwhelmingly controversial Bannon wouldn’t have to go through Senate confirmation hearings, which would have been a firestorm for the ages. But now that Trump has subsequently also picked Bannon for the National Security Council, it turns out he’ll be unwittingly feeding Bannon to the Senate wolves after all.

Impeach Trump Now

According to section (a)(6) of federal statute 50 U.S. Code 3021, a civilian like Steve Bannon will in fact need to go through Senate confirmation and approval in order to serve on the National Security Council because he doesn’t fit into any of the five listed pre-approved categories. That obscure law, which has remained obscure because no president has ever tried to put a political hack on the NSC until now, was dug up by MSNBC analyst Jonathan Alter late on Monday night. This sets up a remarkable showdown if Trump goes ahead with the Bannon pick, because few in either party have shown any affinity or trust for the guy – and they’ll have limitless material for embarrassing him.

If Bannon goes through a Senate confirmation, it will give Senators the opportunity to grill him about his former role running fake-news white nationalist site Breitbart, and the chance to hammer him about the allegations that he beat his wife. And it will pull back the curtain on the mysterious Bannon, who is believed to be acting as de facto president in the Trump administration. If all 48 Democrats vote against him, it will require just three Republicans to do the same. Considering just how deeply Bannon is distrusted, along with the strong belief that he should not be taking the place of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff on the NSC, it’s likely that Bannon will be rejected by the Senate.

Trump went out of his way to make sure Steve Bannon didn’t have to go through Senate confirmation the first time around. So it’s a given that Trump simply didn’t realize Bannon would need Senate approval for the National Security Council. Now that this law has been unearthed, there’s a decent chance Bannon will be withdrawn. He would still have his role as Chief Strategist and puppet master. But it would mark yet another embarrassing body blow to Trump’s out of control administration and his pet Nazi.

Richard Nixon counsel John Dean on Donald Trump’s presidency: “it will end in calamity”

White House Counsel John Dean was knee deep in Richard Nixon’s Watergate scandal, first helping to orchestrate it and then later blowing the whistle on it and helping force Nixon out of office. He had a front row seat to Nixon’s “Saturday Night Massacre” in which he fired everyone who refused to help cover up his crimes. And now that John Dean has had an opportunity to watch Donald Trump’s Monday Night Massacre unfold this evening, he’s making a stern prediction.

Not My President

John Dean has been consistently critical of Donald Trump both before and after the election, and he has previously suggested that investigators should <a href="http://www.palmerreport.com/politics/watergate-conspirator-explains-key-trump-putin-follow-money/630/" target="_blank".follow the money to get the bottom of Trump’s Russia scandal, borrowing a famous phrase from the movie made about the Watergate investigation. But in the midst of tonight’s Monday Night Massacre, Dean began harshly condemning Trump’s actions in real time.

Impeach Trump Now

After Trump fired acting Attorney General Sally Yates for refusing to implement his illegal Muslim ban even after federal judges had issued an immediate stay against it, Dean this missive: “Donald Trump is in the process of trashing the American presidency. He is just getting started. He thinks he is bigger than the office.” Then after Trump released a statement attacking Yates, Dean continued his criticism: “I’ve never read White House statement as nasty as Trump’s attack on Acting AG Sally Yates. New low.”

But then came the final blow, and the point of no return. John Dean, who was a first hand participant in the unraveling of the only president to ever resign</b., and who knows precisely what he's looking at when he sees it, predicted this: “The way the Trump presidency is beginning it is safe to say it will end in calamity. It is almost a certainty. Even Republicans know this!” Perhaps Donald Trump needs to read this.
