President Donald Trump is by far the best thing we have had since former President Ronal Reagan. In fact, in many ways, Trump is a lot like Reagan!
It is surprising to me to hear that Reagan’s son, Ron, took a jab at Trump. He questioned whether he was fit for office and said, “Donald Trump is a deeply damaged human being.”
During Ron’s interview on MSNBC’s “Hardball with Chris Matthews,” he even called President Trump a “sociopathic, malignant narcissist.”
He then made a snide comment in which he compared the president to a carpet stain. He said, “[T]he electoral college has sort of vomited this thing up and it landed in the Oval Office. And it needs to be removed. It’s a stain. It’s a big glob on the carpet there. It needs to be removed. And that means impeachment or the 25th Amendment. This man is a danger to the world.”
Reagan, who has become an outspoken Trump, has repeatedly questioned Trump’s mental stability.
Reagan told Matthews in August that Trump is acting “pathological in his behavior.”
His remarks come shortly after former President Jimmy Carter defended the Republican president for facing a harsher media environment than his predecessors, pointing to the press questioning his mental stability as a sign they are going too far in scrutinizing him.“I think the media have been harder on Trump than any other president certainly that I’ve known about,” Carter told The New York Times in an interview published Saturday.
