From all outward appearances, President Donald Trump is self destructing spectacularly, and at an accelerating rate. He has been recklessly tweeting terrible things that further incriminate him along with his family. He has been ignoring the easiest parts of his job that could make him look good. He is speaking and behaving more erratically than ever. And you don’t even have to take my word for it, since his own daughter has acknowledged that same pattern.
It’s certainly nothing new for Trump’s underlings to tell reporters that Trump’s insane behavior is a serious problem, but they do it anonymously. Maybe they’re just venting, or maybe they are trying to get a message through to Trump via the media, hoping he’ll take it to heart. But Donald Trump has no heart, and whenever we see these anonymous quotes, we know they won’t have an impact. However, it’s different this time.
In an article which includes Donald Trump’s underlings calling him “nuts” while also revealing that he knows he has been “cornered” by the relentless investigations into his massive criminal scandals, two people were willing to use their names Here’s the crucial sentence from that Vanity Fair story: “Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump are unsettled that Trump is so gleefully acting on his most self-destructive impulses as his legal peril grows.”
Yup, Ivanka Trump is telling a reporter on record that Trump is self destructing. Could this be a last ditch attempt to get through to his tiny brain, or is Ivanka just trying to distance herself from her evil father as he circles the toilet drain? Either way, we are now at the remarkable point where even Donald Trump’s own daughter is publicly talking about how bad he’s gotten.
