Mr. Trump, where is your evidence? On what do you base

these outlandish charges? Have you no sense of decency, sir? At long last, Mr. President, have you no decency?

I think your site may have been hacked again. Any time I open your site, no matter what browser im

using, after about 5 minutes another tab opens from something called "crapeta.com." It looks like a virus, but it only happens when I look at DU. I just close the bogus tab and proceed, but sometimes it happens multiple times in quick succession. makes me think your site has some malignant code buried in its internals. Any idea what is going on?

Fuck you, Trump, you fucking loser. The U.S. Constitution whupped

your skanky, fascist ass 3-0.

That is all.

when one party in a case before the court calls the duly-confirmed (99-0)

judge "so-called,", that is the very essence of "contempt," i.e., not just "snarky." His Honor most certainly can cause to be issued an Order to Show Cause. upon Trunp s failure to appear, His Honor can issue a warrant for failure to appear.

Saying What Must Be Said: The President-Elect is MENTALLY ILL

Trump's latest Tweet-storm about millions of illegal ballots having been cast in New Hampshire, Virginia and California highlights the strong possibility he is in the full grip of delusional thinking. I think it may be time for Trump's critics to switch from perpetual excoriation of the man to suggesting professional help for him and a concurrent concerted effort to convince the Electors in the Electoral College to invoke the 25th Amendment of the Constitution preemptively to deny him the office.

I would simply remind DU and its sympathizers to remember that someone who is mentally ill, like the evidence now suggests Trump is, is actually suffering from an illness. He or she is not fully or even legally responsible for his words and actions. A couple of my friends who have had parents slip into dementia report that their parents were quite capable of saying incredibly hateful things, words completely at odds with the parent my friends thought they knew before dementia set in. I'm not a trained psychologist, but my family has a history of chronic mental illness and, after awhile, you start to recognize the signs. This paranoid delusion about millions of illegal votes reminds me of things one of my psychotic family members might have said.

In some ways, a mentally-ill Trump is far more serious and worrisome -- and sad -- than the caricature of Trump as some Bond-like villain. At least the villains in Bond's films acted based on an understanding of the facts; their interpretation of those facts failed to take into account Bond's expertise, but the villains were never out of touch with reality. Trump's tweet suggests to me he has lost touch with reality.

The question is: what are we going to do about it? Can and should the 25th Amendment be used preemptively as a rationale by the Electoral College to deny Trump the office?

Edit to Add: NY Times columnist Paul Krugman just tweeted out today (January 24, 2017) that President Trump is mentally ill. Krugman is referencing two articles from the past 24 hours:

It's 7:25 a.m. here in California and there is already a line of

25 voters at my precinct in West Los Angeles. In LA-LA Land! Wow! Will post pics when I get home.

11 days before the election??? Obama must fire this fuck Comey on

Nov. 9, no matter who wins the GE.

This is total fucking bullshit. Comey must go if respect for the rule of law is to be maintained.

I can't believe it! Hillary has baited Donald into spending 3 days attacking

Miss Universe Alicia Machado. He learned ABSOLUTELY NOTHING from the Khan Affair. What a sleazebag putz he is.

I will wager even Clinton's campaign team are busy lifting their jaws off the floor.

Payback is a motherf**ker. For 8 years you Republican bastards

have obstructed President Obama at nearly every turn, your latest stunt refusing to deliberate on his nominee to SCOTUS.

So yesterday, President Obama tied Trump around your puerile pissant necks, leaving you just enough air so that you remain conscious as Trump drains the last breaths from your putrid corpses.

Enjoy it, you Republican pricks. And know this: revenge is a dish best served motherf**king cold!

If l'affaire Khan were to force Trump to drop out, how would the Republicans

pick a replacement? And what Republican in his or her right mind is going to take one for the team?
