Early Wednesday morning, Donald Trump tweeted this:
But the same day, just a few hours later, Trump told reporters that he thought the transition was going “very, very smoothly. Very good.”
My only question is, which Trump is Dr. Jekyll, and which one is Mr. Hyde?
Also published on Medium.
And when you posted that nearly 90,000 ignorants loved Trumps comment. Very sad.
Our first Bi-polar president possibly, very scary stuff indeed.
Dave, this isn’t Bipolar Disorder, at least not as I recognize it. That is usually characterized by periods of mania (thoughts spinning too fast to control) or depression (little energy, motivation, or ability to act) lasting for days or longer. The moods don’t tend to turn on a dime. Someone suffering an acute manic attack might well find it difficult to keep their mind on one topic for long enough to complete speaking a sentence, let alone type and post a tweet. Symptoms do vary, but…
Trump may have one or more diagnosable mental illnesses, and the proscept of him holding the office scares me and many others, but it doesn’t seem to me that he’s Bipolar.
William, I am not a physician in any understanding but some of the symptoms do ring familiar.
1 difficulty falling asleep
2 delusion, racing thoughts
3 risky sexual behavior
4 false sense of superiority.
While granted these behaviors do not guarantee a diagnosis, but something is amiss.
ADHD would be my amateur diagnosis, peppered with a large dollop of egomania and anger management issues.
He may be in for a rude awakening after the traditional “honeymoon” period is over, however, and finds out that Congress, despite the majority being led by the nose thus far, doesn’t roll over to his every wish and whim. Not that they can’t do enough damage separately on their own though.
He doesn’t drink.
Trump seems not to understand that the election is over and he no longer needs to run against the Obama legacy… all Trump needs to do now is, make America better than it already is. Which, based on his choice of cabinet and other posts so far, may be more than a teensy bit difficult.
Say what he will, Obama is going to be a tough act to follow.
I predict lots and lots and LOTS of excuse making, inflation, higher unemployment, risky behavior by banks, increased pollution… basically a race to see how fast he can turn us into a mirror of the overall economic and social and environmental conditions of China and Russia. No more shining city on the hill for the U.S…. that is so 20th century.
Not Jekyll & Hyde, but Dumb and Dumberer in one body.
