Rambling CPAC Speech Sparks Renewed Mental Health Concerns About POTUS

Eugene Robinson: “The president of the United States gave a rambling and incoherent two-hour speech in which he raved like a lunatic and told crazy, self-serving lies from start to finish. If that no longer qualifies as alarming, we’re in serious trouble.”

“He tried to talk about the Democratic Party’s proposed Green New Deal: ‘When the wind stops blowing, that’s the end of your electric. Let’s hurry up. Darling — Darling, is the wind blowing today? I’d like to watch television, darling.’ No, but it’s true.”

“Not even remotely true, but he was just getting started.”

“He talked about the hardship of the government shutdown: ‘I spent my New Year’s all by myself. … It was me and about 500 men and women outside with machine guns. I never saw so many beautiful-looking machine guns. I’d look at that equipment and I’d say, ‘Man … ‘They sit in the trees. They sit on the lawn.'”

“If you had an uncle or a grandpa who sounded so divorced from reality, you’d be urgently concerned.”
