Published

As revelations about President Donald Trump’s child-like behavior and microscopic attention span call his mental fitness into question, the question lingers: Who are the sources speaking to the Michael Wolff and other media outlets about Trump’s mental condition?

The Washington Post put together a list of possible leakers, speculators and concerned parties who might be speaking out about Trump’s possible psychiatric issues.

“(T)here is a shortlist of people in or near Trump’s inner circle who have voiced doubts about his competence, or who have been reported to have done so, even if some denied it later,” the Post‘s Avi Selk said.

1. Bob Corker

Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) is a former Trump disciple gone apostate. He has publicly excoriated the president and called the current White House an “adult day care center.”

2. James Comey

Former FBI Director James Comey expressed doubts about Pres. Trump’s mental stability early on, after a series of meetings in which tried to extract a pledge of loyalty to his administration.

The New York Times said that Comey told associates at the time of the meeting that the president seemed “outside the realm of normal” and downright “crazy.”

3. Rex Tillerson

Well, the Secretary of State did call the president a “f*cking moron.” (Tillerson denies it.)

4. Susan Collins and Jack Reed

A live microphone caught Sens. Collins (R-ME) and Reed (R-RI) discussing their concern about Trump last year.

“I think — I think he’s crazy,” said Reed. “I mean, I don’t say that lightly and as a kind of a goofy guy.”

“I’m worried,” Collins said.

Trump lashed out at rumors about his mental soundness Saturday — first on Twitter and then in a rambling Camp David press conference.

QAnon authors in a fight over doing an audiobook — because they think their followers can’t read

Published

on

On Monday, The Daily Beast reported that the authors of a popular book for believers in the QAnon conspiracy theory are in a bitter fight over whether or not to release an audiobook version.

QAnon: An Invitation to The Great Awakening came out last year and peaked near the top of the Amazon bestseller list in March. One of the book's co-authors, Dustin Nemos, is publicly attacking another co-author, who goes by the name of "JoeM," for his "petty and hostile and paranoid" refusal to help produce an audiobook, and notes that it is necessary because a disproportionate number of QAnon believers are elderly, have bad eyesight, and may not be able to read the book as text. JoeM, for his part, has accused Nemos of being a "grifter" who is trying to make a buck off of true believers.

In 2015, the Missouri Supreme Court reprimanded Prewitt for the post encouraging people to donate, saying that it violated judicial ethics rules.

on

President Donald Trump's highly-criticized decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal has resulted as was warned, with the country reviving its nuclear program, a conservative columnist explained in The Washington Post on Monday.

Conservative Max Boot took a victory lap in the hard-hitting column, reminding that he had signed a March 2016 letter by 121 Republican foreign policy analysts warning about Trump's approach.

"I wish we had been wrong, but we were all too right," Boot wrote.

"Trump has shown no ability to grow in office; but then it’s hard to learn if you all you read is Fox News chyrons. He is today the same compulsive liar and erratic ignoramus he was at the start of the 2016 campaign," Boot said. "Only now, the stakes are much higher."
