On Monday, Patti Davis, the daughter of Nancy and Ronald Reagan compared President Donald Trump’s behavior to that of a child in an article for The Washington Post.

Davis pointed out the role of a parent and how they are tasked with making their children feel safe.

“They were the first adults we knew, and we relied on them to lead us into a big, unfamiliar world,” she wrote. “We only knew we were supposed to hold their hands and trust them to keep us from falling.”

She then explained that as the president of the United States, Trump has a parental-like role to fulfill for our country.

“There is an inherently parental role to being president of the United States. The person holding that office is supposed to know more than we do about the dangers facing the country and the world and is entrusted with making the appropriate decisions to keep us safe and secure,” Davis wrote.

This is not the first time Trump’s behavior has been compared to a child. Psychologists have said that it is actually insulting children –to be compared to the president.

“Donald Trump is a dangerous person, and he occupies a position of unparalleled power. That is the reality that faces the country and the world. Stop insulting children and adolescents by comparing him to them, and hold him accountable for his own offenses,” developmental psychologists Jeffrey Jensen Arnett and Lene Arnett Jensen wrote in a letter to The New York Times.

Davis went on to explain that children laugh when they see the president on TV namecalling and stirring up drama. She noted that Trump demeaned a woman’s looks by calling her “horse force,” and often dismiss reporters serious questions as “stupid.”

“Nine-year-olds should be able to look up to the president of the United States, not feel that the president is one of them,” she wrote. “What will happen if the country faces serious danger?”

"Before setting himself on fire on Ukraine yesterday, Mick Mulvaney came into the White House briefing room to break to the nation the fact the that the Trump Doral golf resort turns out to be -- in his estimation, organically, just sitting there -- the best possible place to have a G-7 Summit of world leaders," MSNBC's Brian Williams reported. "That was provision number one. There’s no better place that we can find. Number two was, the president will not profit from said G-7."

The Constitution has two mechanisms to remove President Donald Trump from office prior to his term ending on January 20, 2021: impeachment and the 25th Amendment.

HBO "Real Time" host Bill Maher noted that Trump could also choose to resign.

Maher waved around a $1 million check that he said he would give to Trump to quit.

He said he also knew 1,000 people who would do the same -- which would land Trump over $1 billion.

Maher said even poor people would pawn their wedding rings to add to the pot.

Trump can’t fire Mulvaney because nobody else wants to be his chief of staff: report

Published

on

White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney will likely stay on at the White House despite his public confession of a quid pro quo in the Ukraine scandal at the center of the impeachment inquiry, The New York Times reported Friday.

"But Mr. Mulvaney’s job has been anything but normal since the news conference on Thursday at which he seemingly undermined the Trump administration’s strategy for avoiding impeachment by acknowledging that Mr. Trump had sought a quid pro quo for providing Ukraine with American aid," the newspaper reported. "In the chaotic aftermath, the president’s Republican allies are questioning Mr. Mulvaney’s savvy and intelligence even as the Trump campaign is defiantly turning one of his lines from the news conference into a T-shirt."
