Brink of a Constitutional Crisis

  The Huffington Post and other sites are reporting that it took President Trump only 8 days to bring the United States to the brink of a Constitutional Crisis.
  Thank God our legal system, the courts, are working right now.
 

“It took little more than a week in office for President Donald Trump to thrust the nation to the brink of a constitutional crisis.

Late Friday, Trump issued an executive order forbidding millions of refugees, hundreds of thousands of visitors and 500,000 legal immigrants from seven majority-Muslim countries from entering the United States. Over the following 48 hours, massive protests erupted in cities and airports nationwide, courts temporarily blocked major parts of the order, the administration defied the courts and Democrats called for an investigation into the administration’s defiance. As the weekend drew to a close, an anonymous White House official proclaimed the whole episode a “massive success story.”

The federal courts thought otherwise. On Saturday night, a judge in Brooklyn ordered the Trump administration to stop deporting refugees and visitors immigration authorities had previously cleared to enter the country. Two judges in Massachusetts ordered that travelers who were legally authorized to be in the United States shouldn’t be detained at or deported from Logan International Airport for a period of seven days. A judge in Seattle halted the deportation of two travelers. And a judge in Virginia issued an order requiring the administration to allow lawyers access to lawful permanent residents — also known as green card holders — whom Customs and Border Protection agents had detained at Dulles International Airport on Trump’s instructions…”

  Now the question is will the Executive Branch follow the law?  With Donald Trump as President of the United States you do not know what he is going to do.
   President Donald Trump lives in a strange world of “alt-facts.”  Those are lies that President Trump seems to think are real.  I fear that the American people have elected a man with mental problems.  His mental problems might not be a problem for a business person or for you or I.  But for the President of the United States and the Commander-In-Chief having mental problems is a problem.
     A number of reports have appeared online saying that experts thing he has “Narcissistic Personality Disorder.” 
 

 

“Narcissistic personality disorder is a mental disorder in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance, a deep need for admiration and a lack of empathy for others. But behind this mask of ultraconfidence lies a fragile self-esteem that’s vulnerable to the slightest criticism.

A narcissistic personality disorder causes problems in many areas of life, such as relationships, work, school or financial affairs. You may be generally unhappy and disappointed when you’re not given the special favors or admiration you believe you deserve. Others may not enjoy being around you, and you may find your relationships unfulfilling.

Narcissistic personality disorder treatment is centered around talk therapy (psychotherapy)…”

  It is going to be a long long four years for the American people and the world.
