I, POTUS: thoughts on the insanity of the American Caesar

My issue with this whole election and the aftermath administration is facts. I believe in facts. For instance, Hillary Clinton loved her privacy and her blackberry more than her country. That’s a fact. The current POTUS loves himself and his money more than his country. That’s a fact. Both of them were horrible choices for president. I mean, really bad. They’re two sides of the same coin.: billionaire elite, political elite.

What the country really needed in 2016 was a moderate, sane, middle-ground candidate with a rational approach to both foreign policy and domestic issues who was open to looking at immigration reform, tax reform, entitlements, Obamacare, education, and how globalization did and did not work for the US people. Instead, we got the current POTUS, a man that has failed as businessman, failed as husband (3x), failed as philanthropist (his charity only gives to himself), failed as just about everything. And, all due respect, you do have to fail a lot to get it right eventually, that’s true. But no one needs a POTUS failing a lot on the job to learn how to do that job.

My big issue with the current POTUS  is that he is not competent to run a government of any size, due to Alzheimer’s disease and uncontrolled adult ADHD.

Here’s a partial list of Adult ADHD symptoms.

Lack of Focus

Possibly the most telltale sign of ADHD, “lack of focus” goes beyond difficulty paying attention. It means being easily distracted, finding it hard to listen to others in a conversation, overlooking details, and not completing tasks or projects.

Disorganizaton

Life can seem chaotic for everyone at times. But someone with ADHD experiences a more hectic life on a regular basis. This can make it difficult to keep everything in its right place. A person with ADHD may struggle with these organizational skills:

  • time management
  • keeping track of tasks
  • prioritizing in a logical manner
  • timelines

Impusivity

Impulsiveness in someone with ADHD can manifest in several ways:

  • interrupting others during conversation
  • being socially inappropriate
  • rushing through tasks
  • acting without much consideration to the consequences

Emotional Problems

Life with ADHD can seem chaotic, as though your emotions are on a constantly up-and-down journey. You can easily become bored and go looking for excitement on a whim. Small frustrations can seem intolerable or bring on depression and mood swings. Untreated emotional problems can have a polarizing effect, which can add complications to personal and professional relationships.

Restlessness & Anxiety

 As an adult with ADHD, you may feel like your motor can’t shut off. Your yearning to keep moving and doing things can lead to frustration when you can’t do something immediately. This leads to restlessness, which can lead to frustrations and anxiety. Anxiety is a very common symptom of adult ADHD, as the mind tends to replay worrisome events repeatedly.

Relationship Issues

An adult with ADHD often has trouble in relationships, whether they are professional, romantic, or platonic. The traits of talking over people in conversation, inattentiveness, and easily being bored can be draining on relationships as a person can come across as insensitive, irresponsible, or uncaring. Repeated patterns of relationship issues, including divorce, are common.

Here’s a partial list of Alzheimer’s warning signs from the Mayo Clinic

Memory loss that disrupts daily life
Relying on memory aides (e.g., reminder notes or electronic devices) or family members for things they used to handle on their own. POTUS is always in the care of minders or family. They always have to redirect him when he goes off the rails. In fact,  Tim Cooke, CEO of Apple took a meeting with Ivanka and Jared about the immigration ban. Not the POTUS. That’s just weird. POTUS is mentally unable to discuss things with people.

Challenges in planning or solving problems
Some people may experience changes in their ability to develop and follow a plan. They may have difficulty concentrating. POTUS can’t plan anything, seriously. Nothing he has done has a plan behind it. He can’t focus long enough to make one.

Trouble understanding visual images and spatial relationships
For some people, having vision problems is a sign of Alzheimer’s. They may have difficulty reading, judging distance and determining color or contrast. In terms of POTUS, he’s unable to see that his inauguration crowd was smaller than Obama’s.

Problems with words in speaking or writing
People with Alzheimer’s may have trouble following or joining a conversation. They may stop in the middle of a conversation and have no idea how to continue or they may repeat themselves. They may struggle with vocabulary, have problems finding the right word or call things by the wrong name (e.g., calling a “watch” a “hand-clock”). All of the above happens to POTUS. He rambles about himself endlessly because even he doesn’t know what he’s saying. He forgets his words. Count how often he uses Good or Great in any statement.

Decreased or poor judgment
People with Alzheimer’s may experience changes in judgment or decision-making. For example, they may use poor judgment when dealing with money, giving large amounts to telemarketers — or trying to make Mexico pay for $15 billion wall. Or thinking torture is okay. Or talking about yourself as supporting the intelligence community after saying you didn’t on Twitter. Or groping strange women when you’re already married to a nice woman.

Changes in mood and personality
The mood and personalities of people with Alzheimer’s can change. They can become confused, suspicious, depressed, fearful or anxious. They may be easily upset at home, at work, with friends or in places where they are out of their comfort zone. POTUS is pretty much the definition here. Suspicious and confused he’s shutting down all communication between taxpayers and the agencies that work for taxpayers, such as the EPA or the National Parks. The phrase paranoid delusions springs to mind. One of the president’s confidantes told Politico that his staffers have to “control information that may infuriate him,” a task made difficult by the fact that the leader of the free world “gets bored and likes to watch TV.”

I support anyone struggling with Adults with ADHD or Alzheimer’s. But I have a problem having someone with both of these conditions, both untreated, running the USA with a group of advisers that could at best be described as morally dubious, politically sketchy, vultures out to pick America’s bones clean.

Okay, next up. The wall.
