Watergate’s John Dean: ‘Half the population right now isn’t sure whether Trump is insane’

Published

on

The former counsel to President Richard Nixon has lashed out at current President Donald Trump, questioning his sanity and saying he’s “happy every morning when I wake up to see he hasn’t blown up some part of the world.”

In an interview with Sky News, reported by The Independent, attorney John Dean called the nascent Trump presidency an “unfolding disaster,” that has baffled voters who can no longer guess what the impulsive Trump will do next.

“As I see it, about maybe half the population right now isn’t sure whether he is insane or if he’s just a totally angry man, they don’t know what he’s doing,” Dean explained. “About 40 per cent seem to be happy with him and approve of his job and another maybe 10 per cent are pretty confused or don’t care, so it’s very strange over here now.”

Dean admitted that Trump gives him “nightmares,” remarking, “We’ve never had a President like this. I’m kind of happy every morning when I wake up to see he hasn’t blown up some part of the world.”

The former Nixon lawyer also questioned whether Trump has attention deficit disorder which limits his ability to focus on the job and make appropriate decisions.

“I see it as unfolding disaster at this point,” he ruefully added.

“So you’ve got to give me a big win, please,” Trump told a Louisiana crowd this week before the GOP candidate lost the governor's race in a red state.

“What Trump did in Louisiana was increase voter participation. While he increased the pro-Trump turnout, he also increased the anti-Trump turnout. That’s kind of the lesson here,” polling analyst Ron Faucheux told The Washington Post in an interview.

Given President Donald Trump worked to intimidate witnesses in real-time during the hearings on the impeachment inquiry last week, the White House is desperately searching for something that can keep him busy.

Axios reported Sunday, the presidential daily schedule will be designed to keep the president distracted with their own counter-programming.

"Trump's schedule for the coming week shows him governing," Axios reported. He'll be promoting jobs and talking about things like "art and culture."
