Trump just made a telling Freudian slip during a cabinet meeting that exposes his true desires

Trump held a meeting in front of the press for the second day in a row today. Yesterday, the president managed to ramble his way incoherently through a bipartisan meeting on immigration. His supporters held it up as some great success as if the fact that he was able to make it through the meeting without having a complete mental breakdown or drooling all over himself was the greatest thing since the Gettysburg Address.

Today’s meeting in the Cabinet Room got off to a telling start when the president said, “Welcome back to the studio,” to a gathering of reporters and cameraman. The greeting is troubling because it either proves the long-running suspicion that Trump views the presidency as just another meaningless reality television show, or it proves the rumors that his mind is eroding and he momentarily thought he actually was in a studio.

The former seems much more likely, but the latter can’t be ruled out, given the manner in which he delivered the statement. There’s little hint of a smirk or expression change to indicate he was making a joke, and after giving the welcome he looks around the room, seemingly confused.

Trump then pivoted to reading from his notes, launching into one of his trademark braggadocious speeches, congratulating himself for imagined accomplishments.

This country deserves a leader who takes his or her responsibilities seriously. Instead, we’re stuck with a charlatan who is far more concerned about his own image than the good of the country. Every day Trump remains in the White House is another day that our nation drifts rudderless towards unseen disasters. He must go, and he must go soon.
