Trump family sickness

Donald Trump Jr. recently said “Anything that they (the Democrats) can use to try to hurt Trump, they will … But for them to try to take a pandemic and seemingly hope that it comes here, and kills millions of people so that they could end Donald Trump’s streak of winning, is a new level of sickness.”

Eric Trump subsequently said “They (the Democrats) think they are taking away Donald Trump’s greatest tool, which is being able to go into an arena and fill it with 50,000 people every single time. You watch, they’ll milk it every single day between now and Nov. 3. And guess what, after Nov. 3, coronavirus will magically all of a sudden go away and disappear.”

Biden’s campaign manager responded “ … with almost 90,000 Americans dead … for Eric Trump to claim that the coronavirus is a political hoax that will ‘magically’ disappear is absolutely stunning and unbelievably reckless.”

An opinion article in the July 17, 2018, Washington Post by Kathleen Parker entitled “A Cancer Lives Among Us,” was an analysis of Donald Trump. Parker wrote “such inclinations (of Trump’s behavior) may more accurately reflect a severe narcissistic personality disorder…he has stepped over all lines of acceptable presidential behavior and presents a clear and present danger to the United States.”

As indicated by the above statements and many others, it is evident these three Trump family members are such extreme narcissists that they are mentally ill and should be institutionalized. It is utterly amazing and frustrating that one of them is president of the U.S. That needs to be changed in November.
