The Washington Post suffered through the entirety of Trump's ABC News interview yesterday, only a part of which I referenced in my previous post. Quoted by WaPo, here is the president of the United States, rambling almost psychotically about his talk at the CIA last Saturday:
That speech was a home run. See what Fox said. They said it was one of the great speeches. They showed the people applauding and screaming…. I got a standing ovation. In fact, they said it was the biggest standing ovation since Peyton Manning had won the Super Bowl, and they said it was equal. I got a standing ovation. It lasted for a long period of time. You probably ran it live. I know when I do good speeches. I know when I do bad speeches. That speech was a total home run. They loved it…. People loved it. They loved it. They gave me a standing ovation for a long period of time. They never even sat down, most of them, during the speech.
Do those seem like the words of a normal human being, let alone the leader of the free world?
The point here isn't to ridicule the president of the United States' penchant for self-inflating gibberish. The point, the obvious one, I should think, is rather that this is an unstable man whose thoughts and speech positively scream his instability — and he is the president of the United States.
