Love him or hate him, you can’t deny that President Trump is one of the most interesting political figures this country has ever seen. No one has managed to get more people talking about him and the issues facing our country than The Donald.
Liberals have dedicated an obscene amount of time to trying to paint the real estate mogul turned commander-in-chief into a vile racist, a typical, corrupt billionaire who cheated his way into the most powerful office in the land.
The left hates a man who speaks his mind so openly, and agree with what he says or not, you always know where the man stands on an issue because he wears his heart on his sleeve. Or his Twitter feed rather.
Much of his “tit-for-tat” mentality and some of his policy positions have led many progressives to slam the president by saying he’s “mentally ill.”
Well, famous psychiatrist Dr. Keith Ablow has officially weighed in on the matter and what he has to say is likely going to make Trump haters howl with rage.
Here are a few snippets from a piece Ablow published on Fox News:
Now, here is my assessment, once again: Donald Trump is stone cold sane and more than mentally fit to be president of the United States.
When a man acquires billions of dollars through complex real estate transactions, invests in many countries, goes on to phenomenal success in television and turns his name into a worldwide brand, it is very unlikely that he is mentally unstable.
When the same man obviously enjoys the love and respect of his children and his wife, who seem to rely on him for support and guidance, it is extraordinarily unlikely that he is mentally unstable.
When that same man remains friends with his ex-wife (Ivana Trump), who supports him, politically, it is almost impossible that he is mentally unstable.
When the same man walks into the political arena and deftly defeats 16 Republican opponents and then the Democratic heir-apparent to a two-term president’s administration, the odds of that man being mentally unstable become vanishingly thin.
And when that very same man attracts to his team the kind of intellect and gravitas represented (to name just a few) by Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Dr. Ben Carson, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, four star Marine Corps General John Kelly and Secretary of Defense James Mattis, a retired Marine Corps general and commander of the U.S. Central Command, he cannot be mentally deranged. Period. It is a statistical impossibility.
Albow goes on to note that Donald Trump is the first person in this nation’s history to win the presidency without having held any other political office or served in the military.
In other words, Trump took the whole “anyone can be president” cliche and magically transformed it into a reality. The presidency, and by extension, all elected offices, will never be the same. Ever.
Now normal people will see they have an opportunity to make a real difference by getting involved in the political process. You don’t have to be a career politician or military member to have an impact on our culture.
Trump managed to beat all of the odds, to do what others deemed impossible. Hard to imagine that was done by someone who was bat guano insane, right?
Another indication of his sanity, according to Ablow, is the quality of the products that he puts out. He has many successful hotels, restaurants, and other items too. A man who had mental health issues likely wouldn’t be so well adjusted and able to keep so many companies going.
Can the left really claim that President Trump is nuts, totally out of his gourd, cuckoo for cocoa puffs, when many of them are fans of Sen. Elizabeth Warren, a woman who has lied previously about being Native American?
Or how about the fact liberals support the concept of transgenderism. How can a person be sane and accuse someone else of insanity when they fully support the idea that a person who is biologically male can be female?
Seems to shoot a rather large hole in the whole thing, doesn’t it?
Perhaps leftists would be better served if they spent their time establishing actual arguments against Trump’s policy positions — complete with evidence — rather than wasting time by coming up with straw men like the president being mentally ill?
Then again, when you get right down to it, if progressives actually did this, if they put together coherent arguments, people would see their policies are total bunk and folks would jump ship, including many of the liberals currently in Congress.
It would be the total destruction of the Democratic Party. Now there’s something you can pray for tonight.
