On Wednesday, we were given further proof that President Trump is not only a pathological liar, but may also be so mentally unstable that he now imagines phone calls which never occurred.
At issue are two calls Trump said he received, one from the Mexican president and the other from the head of the Boy Scouts of America. Problem is, the Mexican government and a spokesman for the Boy Scouts say those calls didn’t take place.
During the daily press briefing, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked if the president had lied about the phone calls, and she replied:
“I wouldn’t say it was a lie. That’s a pretty bold accusation. The conversations took place, they just simply didn’t take place over a phone call.”
But Thursday morning on CNN, GOP analyst Ana Navarro was discussing what, if anything, Trump has accomplished after six months in office, and she noted:
“We’re now more than six months into this presidency and he hasn’t changed. He keeps up the deranged Twitter rants, he keeps lying and making stuff up out of thin air. I mean, yesterday we learned he was having phone calls with imaginary friends in his head!”
And Navarro also commented that the president’s most recent showing in the polls is very bad news for the White House as they show that even Republicans are sick of his instability, lies, and inability to lead:
“I think most Republicans were willing to give him a chance, wanted to see him succeed. But six months have now gone by and people are getting impatient.”
Might Mike Pence and members of the cabinet decide to invoke the 25th Amendment and seek to remove Trump from office due to questions about his mental health? That depends on just how far his poll numbers slip in the future. But it becomes clearer with each passing day that Donald Trump is completely unfit for office.
