At this point, President Trump’s mental stability should be questioned. Trump believes that Barack Obama is conspiring to destroy his credibility.

During an interview with Fox News’ “Fox and Friends,” Trump made a ridiculous claim while discussing the recent protests across the country. Trump was somewhat baited by a reporter who asked, “Do you believe President Obama is behind it and if he is, is that a violation of the so-called unsaid presidents’ code?”

Trump responded by saying, “No, I think he is behind it. I also think it is politics, that’s the way it is. You never know what’s exactly happening behind the scenes. You know, you’re probably right or possibly right, but you never know … I think that President Obama is behind it because his people are certainly behind it. And some of the leaks possibly come from that group, which are really serious because they are very bad in terms of national security. But I also understand that is politics. In terms of him being behind things, that’s politics. And it will probably continue.”

Trump has been known to present claims without giving facts but this latest assertion is so baseless that his mental stability should be questioned. He may believe that he’s functioning in some kind of alternate universe.

It’s insane to think that a man who just served eight years in office would seek to destroy his successor by organizing protests across the country and participating in leaks.

Trump has a tendency to blame others when things don’t go his way. But blaming Obama for being the mastermind behind protests would seem to be the words of a person who could be suffering from mental health issues.

    Really now. Let’s see:

    It’s a known fact the Obama has stated openly, his intensions to “speak out” against what he deems detrimental policies of President Trump; (Wonder if he means the Black on Black genocide in Chicago, his home town, which he has ignored the past 8 years; and why hasn’t he commented on his former chief-of-staff Rahm Emanuel, now mayor beating on his chest guaranteeing safety of illegal aliens -who take jobs from Blacks, while ignoring the aforementioned genocide. Guess Obama chooses not to see the Emanuel’s obvious racism);

    That media reports Obama’s supporters number 30,000, located in 250 sites strategically located throughout the country, with Soros suspected as financing;

    It is documented anti-Trump rally disrupters were bused in and paid for by Soros…$1,500 a week and an i-phone per person was the going rate;

    Common sense would ask: why after 8 years, so many leaks emanating from the Trump Administration? Coincidences? Not;

    I could go on. But the bottom line is to question President Trump’s mental state, is a CROCK OF CRAP.

    Every brick possible is being thrown at President Trump. From attempts to de-legitimize his presidency, to squawking when he failed to turn and wave when boarding Air Force One the first time.

    Truth be told, this president intends to keep his word, including reaching out to the Black, Brown, Appalachian and the poor working class.

    Communities democrats have for decades have ignored or treated with benign neglect…except during election time. Then democrats, Black, Brown, male, female and those in between converged on these communities for their votes basically through scattering a few crumbs while spewing racist invectives against their opponents.

    This president, much to their dismay, including RINOS, Democrats, pro-open border organizations such as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Hollow-wood “Sellebraties” (intentionally spelled), elites, academia indoctrinating “Shoe” cartoon-type “perfessers”, the propagandizing media…all telling Americans what to think, be politically correct and other anti-Constitutional nonsense… is a street fighter from Queens, the New York borough who are inhabited by denizens known for not taking any crap!

    This president is a joke he’s using this platform just to be heard. If they stop paying attention and maybe he could see what’s important to the people.
