From nut job to wacko, Trump has a history of insulting others mental health

An already tumultuous week of news for the White House was capped off by a New York Times report on Friday that said President Trump discussed his abrupt firing of James B. Comey as FBI director during an Oval Office meeting with Russian officials the day after the termination.

“I just fired the head of the FBI. He was crazy, a real nut job,” Trump said, according to an account reported by the Times that was not disputed by the White House. “I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off.”

The new report ignited afresh the possibility that Trump had committed obstruction of justice.

But it was also the reappearance of one of Trump's preferred ways of insulting people: by suggesting that he is calling into question their mental stability. It's unclear if Trump does this intentionally — is this an instance where we're supposed to take him seriously, but not literally? — or if he uses such put-downs without giving a second thought to their association with mental health.
