Can we stop the lie that Trump's crew want but can't hold him back from disastrous statements?

No, Trump is not unhinged.

No, Trump is not stupid.

Yes, he is controlled by the Russians. Everything he does is an attack on our democracy. He wants chaos, confusion and uncertainty. That makes fertile ground for fear mongering and consolidating his power.

He is silencing his enemies; delegitimatizing any other power centers, i.e. media, CIA; providing alternative version of reality.

This is how a dictator gains power. One tweet and a company loses stock value. Companies are now running scared and trying to suck up to Trump. These companies will back Trump in hopes that he will give them unlimited power. But he will use them to fund his wars.

He needs enemies to stay in power so he makes them of the media and the left, immigrants and undocumented. This fear will consolidate his base and lead to martial law. . . .

So don't ask what does Trump mean in any tweet. He means confusion and fear. He has already taken the Republican party and corporations hostage. Next, drop sanctions on Russia.

Russia, wanting to be dictator and respected. He wants chaos and confusion but is unhinged, not very bright and not nice at all. Me! Me! Me! Me! Is his goal.

He says he likes to fight..he enjoys it. He'll never walk away from a fight. He said that in an interview.

You are giving him waaaay too much credit. He is not some mastermind...he just lies lies lies and attack attack attack. He's delusional...long before Bannon came on the scene.

It's like we're all back in high school together and this muthafucka is making it miserable for us every day.

No one respects him. No one fears him.
He is stupid. He is tacky and tasteless.
He is a racist and a narcissist and a bully.
He has choked and failed at almost ever endeavor.
He so unpopular that he needs to bring
his own applauders to his own events.
The only thing Trump seems to be good at
is insulting people. No, Trump has no power.
He's a world-class weakling.
