The blazing tire fire now parked in the Oval Office is never going to get better. He is never going to rise to the demands of the job; he is never going to be more than the lazy, ignorant, forever-lying ball of self-absorbed fury. He is transparently suffering from mental illness. His tweets and speech patterns will someday be used in history books alongside paragraphs attempting to explain why his supporters and party worked so feverishly to hide evidence of his incapacity despite the man himself laying it bare at every opportunity.
We need to be smart, vigilant and tough. We need the courts to give us back our rights. We need the Travel Ban as an extra level of safety!

At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is "no reason to be alarmed!"

That last one is certainly intriguing. But it was no accident; his "social media director" also took the opportunity presented by a terrorist attack to attack the mayor of London directly, an odd strategy for a non-sociopath.
.@MayorofLondon- refer to below tweet 13 months ago, after you criticized ... now President @realDonaldTrump --- and WAKE UP!!!! https://t.co/RzGOHny37L

Truly, in the hours after an attack, there can be no more noble priority than … attacking the enemies of Donald J. Trump. This is because, and those future history books will likely spend a good deal of time explaining this as well, everyone currently installed in the White House is every bit as much of an ignorant, malevolent sack of shit as the preeminently incapable leader is. There are no adults in the building; if impeachment takes place, it will have to be followed by fumigation to have any noteworthy effect.
To show the level of incompetence under display here, while it took Trump only twelve hours between the cursory we stand with London post and attacking the London mayor, his White House was also contemplating sending Trump to London this week as show of solidarity. Imagine the level of boobery required to think Trump or any Trump designee would be welcomed in the city as if none of the rest of his rhetoric had happened. Truly, it is Trumpesque.
There is also something a bit bizarre and distinctly unseemly about a Trump White House leaking so much froth and spittle over an overseas "terrorist attack" that, here in America, would likely be lost in the background noise of everyday violence no member of the White House pretends to give a damn about. We can easily deduce from the content of tweets that his only intention was to stoke anti-Muslim fears in order to further push his personal anti-Muslim agenda; if there was any concern over the violence itself, over Trump’s attempts to instigate a wider panic, it was lost in translation.
