"don’t know what kind of disinfectant Donald Trump has been injecting, but the man does not appear to be well," she opens. "The President’s lethal medical musing has turned him into even more of a global laughing stock and the widespread ridicule has clearly bruised his fragile ego. While Trump has never been a paradigm of calmness or competence, he has become increasingly irate and erratic in recent days. Now even his diehard supporters seem to be cooling towards him. Is the 'very stable genius' starting to unravel?"
Mahdawi is not alone in her assessment. Other pundits have reflected much the same in recent weeks and days.
Facing the gravest crisis in decades, American needs a calm, stable leader at the tiller. Instead, we have a histrionic, unstable hysteric who flies into drama queen mode over the smallest upset.
Even his base seems to be slipping away from him, as the piece infers. Republicans in New York state are revealed to have more confidence in their Democratic governor than a President from their own party.
That has to be a stat that should worry the White House. Yet they're probably just dismissing it as "fake news."
