What ON EARTH Was Donald Trump Thinking?

By Susan Kuebler

Trump has not made the “best” decisions since becoming president in January of this year, but during this last week he has outdone himself.

After months of trying to get everyone from the Director of the FBI, the head of the NSA, and nearly every GOP member of Congress to confirm that he has not been personally under investigation, in a tweet sent out early Friday morning, he ADMITS THAT HE IS!

What on earth was Donald Trump thinking?

His reference to “the man who told me to fire the FBI Director!” obviously means Assistant Attorney General Ron Rosenstein, whose memo to the Attorney General Jeff Sessions was used by Trump et al. to justify terminating James Comey’s tenure with the FBI.  That story fell apart when Trump, by his own admission in a national television interview, confirmed that he had already decided to fire Comey because of the Russia investigation.

What on earth was Donald Trump thinking?

Before this debacle came the story broken last night by various media sources including the New York Daily Mail that he had hired the woman who planned his son Eric Trump’s wedding to oversee the federal housing program in the New York City area, controlling the distribution of billions of taxpayers’ dollars.  Seriously?  A wedding planner?    The New York Daily Mail also reports that this woman Lynne Patton has “zero housing experience and claims a law degree the school says she never earned.”

What on earth was Donald Trump thinking?

Lest we forget, earlier this week Trump also threw every GOP member of Congress under the bus for passing healthcare legislation that he now describes as “mean.”  But was he referring to the legislation whose passage was celebrated in a Rose Garden extravaganza or is he talking about the super-double-secret-nobody knows-what’s-in it- bill that will come up for a vote in the Senate as early as next week?  Is he trying to distance himself from legislation that only 17% of Americans polled actually like?

He also seems to think he is still running against Hillary Clinton.  In a couple of tweets he decided to take on his former opponent, God only knows why:

Every parent has heard the name calling along with time-old “they did it first” from their kids.  But this is not an excuse or an explanation for a 71-year-old man who is the president of the United States.

What on earth was Donald Trump thinking?

In stories leaked from anonymous White House staff , Trump has been seen yelling at 60″ television sets that broadcast news about the Russia investigation.  This sounds like Watergate deja vu all over again.

The only answer to the above question has to be – Donald Trump was not thinking.  He doesn’t think – he reacts.  And that my friends is a scary proposition considering this is the man entrusted with the nuclear codes.
