The mind reels with the mounting horrors and the sheer pace at which they come. How could one mere week contain so many terrible and impulsive actions from a man who has managed to get elected leader?

By his constantly using Twitter (which I feel he should be banned from, imho) he can hide behind the phone and spew his filth. Somebody needs to rein him back!!! (and out!!).

Personally, I believe that my rescued Shih Tzu has more brains than he does. She could probably get by running the Presidency much better too. lol.

1. I say again, he is not coming up with these himself. He simply does not know enough to pick with such surgical precision the best people in the country to destroy the agencies they are supposed to protect. And I am sure it is deliberate. (And I am not the only person by a long shot who thinks Putin personally picked Rex Tillerson.)

2. And then they will come for us who recycle, use LED and/or CFC light bulbs, and unplug electronics not in use.

3. I've grown tired of wondering what universe they live in. It's just obviously not mine.

4. And I am not even trying to cover all these in Everyday Erinyes. There are too many of them. But at least they are getting plenty of publicity themselves.

5. If he thinks he can get his certifiably insane supporters to let go of a meme they like, such as locking Hillary up, just by backing off (or by any technique or combination of techniques), he is sadly mistaken. Once programmed, they will not easily deprogram. God bless Hillary, since it appears that no one else will bless her, or stand up for her in the smallest degree.

Remember Gloria, it was Joseph who built the pyramids to store grain, so says our brand spanking new HUD Secretary. Perhaps he will use public housing to store grain.

Trumps cabinet appointments appear laden with an antagonistic, reckless and vindictive attitude toward each of the areas of appointment. I suppose what is to be expected next would be the abolishment of the separation of church and state.

I think America needs to make a course adjustment before we end up with a throne in the White House and King Donald the first with views of America as his personal property in the transition from Republic to the Trump Empire skipping around the globe hand in hand with the likes of Putin and Kim Jung-Un.

Based on Trump's abhorrent behavior it seems like he is a sociopath aka anti-social personality disorder:
Does anyone else agree. Look at the diagnostic criteria below:

AND

a.Empathy: Lack of concern for feelings, needs, or
suffering of others; lack of remorse after hurting or
mistreating another.

ends.
b.Deceitfulness: Dishonesty and fraudulence;
misrepresentation of self; embellishment or
fabrication when relating events.
c. Callousness: Lack of concern for feelings or
problems of others; lack of guilt or remorse about
the negative or harmful effects of one„s actions on
others; aggression; sadism.
d. Hostility: Persistent or frequent angry feelings;
anger or irritability in response to minor slights and
insults; mean, nasty, or vengeful behavior.
2. Disinhibition, characterized by:
a. Irresponsibility: Disregard for – and failure to
honor – financial and other obligations or
commitments; lack of respect for – and lack of
follow through on – agreements and promises.
b. Impulsivity: Acting on the spur of the moment in
response to immediate stimuli; acting on a
momentary basis without a plan or consideration
of outcomes; difficulty establishing and following
plans.
c.Risk taking: Engagement in dangerous, risky, and

Amy L, is that all you could find? ;) Any one of his bugnut actions is a reason to resist him. Rise up, unite, raise hell! He may be POTUS in another month, but he will not be my Prez. No way, no how.

His "administration" may or may not go forward with him as President and we as individuals will have no control over that, however, we do have the civic responsibility to pipe up and share our concerns with our representatives.

Its their job to then follow through and report back to us with a publically sanctioned determination and/or follow through with our directives. They have that authority, we gave it to them. Remember that they cannot guess at what our concerns may be, they are not allowed to, they don't know how many have these concerns unless we let make our issues known. Remember that government officials are our representatives, their authority comes from us. We are not subjects and are not ruled, quite the opposite.

A concern is merely the calling out of a potential problem to be investigated and pursed appropriately, not a judgement, not a conclusion. So, no harm, no foul. We have the right to question as well as the right to demand that our representatives act on our concerns. That's the process, carefully composed by our founding fathers to help us with exactly this type of predicament.

There are revelations which were not available earlier, new behavior has surfaced, new facts are available, new evidence has emerged that give us pause. They are serious and they must be addressed - because we say so. We have a say so.

But if we don't say so............................guess what won't happen?

I am actually glad he is not going to follow through on trying to get Hillary locked up. I am horrified but not surprised at his choices of cabinet members or the fact that he plans to get involved with the Apprentisis show--- Just think, if he doesn't like the job someone is doing he will say "you're fired".

It would be so wonderful if some kind of miracle happened that kept him from actually taking office.

You are absolutely right Amy ! He is definitely a Sociopath---- and even the ability to get others to follow him is part of the sociopath tendencies.
