Many Republicans will not say it but there is growing evidence within their party that President Trump is not fit to serve in the office. I, along with others, firmly believe that a mental health issue has a hold on Trump, and it requires medical attention. There is just no way to otherwise rationally explain the words and actions of Trump.
Republicans who want to shape policy have zero runs on the scoreboard after nearly 10 months in office. And with the totally deranged attacks on Senator Bob Corker this weekend by Trump any major policy wins for the remainder of the year are now off the table. While the base of the party who supports Trump remains in the low 30% range, and the rest of the party knows governing is not possible with such a low approval number, then leaves the the rest of the nation–the vast majority–to reflect on what Trump has done to so damage the Republican Party. And why so many of the regular party members around the nation are not more vocal about what they see happening in front of their eyes.
The Washington Post has a major story today breaking down the serious flaws of Trump, and why the GOP is being severely short-changed.
1) Trump is unserious about passing legislation.
2) Trump has alienated several Senate Republicans that he needs more than they need him.
) Trump cares more about showmanship than statesmanship.
4) Trump still does not understand how government works.
5) The president’s credibility is shot in Washington.
