Donald Trump recently sat down for an in-depth interview with the Associated Press, and it only served to reinforce what many of us have long suspected: The man with the codes to our nuclear arsenal has completely lost his mind. I don’t mean that figuratively, either. Clearly, this guy is suffering from advanced senility.
Here’s a few examples which prove my thesis:
Trump told the AP that he never actually said he supported Wikileaks:
“Never heard of Wikileaks, never heard of it. When Wikileaks came out, all I was just saying is, ‘Well, look at all this information here, this is pretty good stuff’… I don’t support or unsupport.”
Yet here he is in October of 2016:

If that’s not an endorsement, then what is?
On Meeting With Elijah Cummings
“Well he said, you’ll be the greatest president in the history of, but you know what, I’ll take that also, but that you could be. But he said, will be the greatest president but I would also accept the other. In other words, if you do your job, but I accept that. Then I watched him interviewed and it was like he never even was here. It’s incredible. I watched him interviewed a week later and it’s like he was never in my office. And you can even say that.”
What in the hell does any of that even mean? It’s tempting to call it a word salad, but it sounds more like the ramblings of someone who just survived being hit in the head with a baseball bat.
Says He Doesn’t Watch CNN, Right After Admitting He Does
TRUMP: OK. The one thing I’ve learned to do that I never thought I had the ability to do. I don’t watch CNN anymore.
AP: You just said you did.
TRUMP: No. No, I, if I’m passing it, what did I just say (inaudible)?
AP: You just said —
TRUMP: Where? Where?
AP: Two minutes ago.
That was then followed by this:
“When I see it’s such false reporting and such bad reporting and false reporting that I’ve developed an ability that I never thought I had. I don’t watch things that are unpleasant. I just don’t watch them.
“I don’t watch CNN anymore. I don’t watch MSNBC anymore. I don’t watch [negative] things, and I never thought I had that ability. I always thought I’d watch.”
It’s tempting to just call this clown a liar and leave it at that. But this is much more serious than just being a liar. This guy has lost his freaking mind!
