We will have to agree to disagree, as usual.

Yay! We agree on something!

To be fair, we also agree that Trump sucks, so there’s that.

So everyone agrees Trump is a mental menace and the argument arises when professionals make that assessment without some level of direct interactive contact with him?

Pretty much so except for the MAGA crowd. Although I'd use "off his ***** rocker".

I can see why.

The contributors to that book weren't wrong: Trump was and remains a danger to this country.

He probably wasn't the only person with a copy of the book. From your link:
Quote:
The authors report that Kelly’s view was shared by unnamed senior officials, quoting one as saying: “I think there’s something wrong with [Trump]. He doesn’t listen to anybody, and he feels like he shouldn’t. He just doesn’t care what other people say and think. I’ve never seen anything like it.”

Trump openly embraces Qanon.
Quote:
On Tuesday, using his Truth Social platform, the Republican former president reposted an image of himself wearing a Q lapel pin overlaid with the words “The Storm is Coming." In QAnon lore, the “storm” refers to Trump's final victory, when supposedly he will regain power and his opponents will be tried, and potentially executed, on live television.
https://www.huffpost.com/entry/bc-us...b082746be99f3a

Quote:
Donald Trump made one of his highest-profile embraces to date of the extremist conspiracy group QAnon at a political rally in Ohio on Saturday, making the apparently deliberate choice to play music that is virtually indistinguishable from the cult organization’s adopted anthem.

Dozens of the former president’s supporters in Youngstown engaged in raised-arm salutes as Trump delivered a fiery address to the background of a song his team insisted was a royalty-free tune from the internet, but to many ears it was nearly identical to the 2020 instrumental track Wwg1wga.

You dont need to do a spectral analysis to figure that one out.

The only puzzle is why the original composer (?) of 'Mirrors'--the song the Trump team claims it actually is, has not sued Feelgood. There are several possible reasons, from the composer being the same, to the fact that the music is royalty free and so there is no financial incentive.

But wow, to blatantly play a well-known Qanon song and then claim it isn't--that is beyond bonkers.

I wonder why it took so long for Trump to publicly get behind the theory that he will be returned to power on a blaze of glory with his enemies being tried for crimes before being executed.

It’s clear he has fantasized about it since Nov 2020.

Michael Cohen weighs in:
Quote:
"There's something very different about Donald Trump today than the Donald Trump I remember at the Trump Organization," Cohen said.

"I think cognitively there's something seriously going on. He's so worried about what's going on, not just in this case but in all of the cases, that I really do believe that cognitively there's something going on there because nobody, even Donald -- he's not stupid enough to believe that you can mentally declassify documents," Cohen explained.

Cohen has known Trump for 16 years.
