Trump's Off-The-Wall Wall

The mental health of 71 year-old narcissistic sociopath Donald "Rump" Trump has been the subject of analysis for months now: professional commentary can be found herehere, and here, for example. The grandiose view of himself, the obsession for approval and flattery, his extreme vindictiveness, the juvenile tweets, the bullying and anger are all clear warning signs that he's not mentally well. There are also those run-of-the-mill comments that indicate his failing mind: that no one knew that health care could be so complicated, or that he didn't know Israel was in the Middle East. There's also the sexist behavior toward women, from his comments about a female Irish reporter in the Oval Office to his recent boorish comments about Brigitte Macron, wife of the French President, that indicate his lack of situational awareness and concern for others' dignity. Then there're the troubling instances of confusion: not noticing his limousine that's parked right in front of him, or walking out of a signing ceremony for one of his executive orders.

Last week, Rump told a group of reporters on Air Force One that the border wall with Mexico should be "transparent" so that you could see to the other side:
"One of the things with the wall is you need transparency....You have to be able to see through it. And I'll give you an example: As horrible as it sounds, when they throw the large sacks of drugs over, and if you have people on the other side of the wall, you don't see them — they hit you on the head with 60 pounds of stuff? It's over. As crazy as that sounds, you need transparency through that wall. But we have some incredible designs." (emphasis added)
"Crazy as it sounds..." You've got that right. But the image of people throwing 60 pound sacks of "drugs" over the wall is beyond odd and cartoonish, something you'd expect a 6 year-old to imagine holding a crayon. It's even more nonsensical than a "solar wall" which he proposed a few weeks ago, a wall that would be built in remote areas, very far from the power grid that the generated solar energy would be transmitted to. (Infidel found a smart video demonstrating the absurdity of this, as with all Trump cons.)

Whether it's the "walls" in his mind or his abnormal behavior, Rump's mental state is a clear and present danger to the security and well-being of this nation. Sadly, he'll never stand for a psychological fitness evaluation that would demonstrate fact that conclusively.
