Ex-McCain aide: ‘Assh*le’ Trump might literally go insane when he starts losing to Hillary

Published

on

A former top aide to John McCain’s unsuccessful presidential campaign said Donald Trump is so temperamentally unsuited for the presidency that even campaigning for the job could drive him insane.

Mark Salter, who worked for the Arizona senator’s 2008 campaign and co-authored his books, discussed his intense dislike of Trump during an interview with Politico.

“He’s just an assh*le,” Salter said. “I mean, you don’t want a guy like that for a neighbor, for a friend, for a member of your church, for a colleague, for a boss. You wouldn’t want — really, you wouldn’t — you know, if he had a flat tire, you wouldn’t pull over and offer to help.”

Salter pointed to Trump’s comparison of trying to avoid venereal disease 1980s to the Vietnam War as an indicator of his character.

“It just shows you what a vainglorious, foolish, ignorant, low-character, bum of a guy Trump is,” he said.

Salter said he’s confident Trump will lose badly, obviously and early — and he said that realization will psychologically destroy him.

“He’s going to lose, and I think he’s got kind of an unstable personality to begin with,” he said.

“I think he could come apart, you know, in some kind of visible way,” Salter continued. “I think that’s quite possible. I’m not a psychiatrist, but there is something wrong with [the] guy.”

Salter, who is backing Hillary Clinton in the 2016 campaign, admits to his own role helping voters accept a candidate so plainly unqualified for the office he seeks by rushing the vetting process and selecting Sarah Palin as McCain’s running mate.

He seconded the last-minute decision to add Palin to the ticket, which he agrees might have opened the door for Trump.

“Maybe,” Salter said. “Maybe a little.”

When asked by Fox Business’s Maria Bartiromo about extra funding for the Post Office during a Thursday morning interview, Trump explicitly tied his refusal to give the USPS what it needed with his desire to block mail-in voting.

Trump proposes new rules for shower heads after the president complains about what the water pressure does to his hair

Published

on

President Donald Trump has a history of complaining about water pressure that he considers inadequate, from toilets to showers. And the Trump administration, Reuters reports, is proposing new rules that would allow shower heads to increase water pressure.

In December 2019, Trump complained about water pressure in toilets, saying, “People are flushing toilets ten times, 15 times as opposed to once.” And recently, during a White House event, Trump complained that water does not come out fast enough when he is taking a shower. Trump told those in attendance, “So, what do you do? You just stand there longer, or you take a shower longer? Because my hair — I don’t know about you, but it has to be perfect. Perfect.”

‘Very cynical and very racist’ Republican operatives are exploiting Kanye West’s mental illness: columnist

Published

on

Writing in the Washington Post this Thursday, Molly Roberts says that the Republicans who are enabling Kanye West's presidential candidacy "are very cynical, very racist and also very wrong."

"Their strategy rests on a misunderstanding both of Black voters and of their own," she writes.

While Kanye's wife Kim Kardashian West warned about his bipolar disorder and pleaded with the public to "give grace" to individuals like him, Republicans have appropriated West’s electoral cause as their own are offering a "mixture of enablement and exploitation," according to Roberts.

"This gambit wouldn’t be happening if West were in better health, because it’s much easier to persuade a billionaire with zero political experience to fork over legal fees for catapulting him over the finish line to nowhere, just as the clock is running out, when he’s struggling to maintain his balance," Roberts writes. "And it also wouldn’t be happening if West weren’t Black, because the thinking behind this old-fashioned, third-party ploy relies on reducing both the candidate and his imaginary supporters to their race."
