How mentally unstable is President Donald Trump? According to his son Eric, the 45th POTUS would commit suicide if he paid attention to all of the negative press surrounding the current presidency.
Eric Trump said during an interview, “It’s the media, the mainstream media, who does not want him to succeed. It’s government who does not want him to succeed. People who are very comfortable in their white marble offices in Washington, DC who he compromises and he threatens in some way, shape or form. They’ve never had to deal with somebody who’s an outsider who won’t put up with nonsense, and this is the result no matter what he does, he’s going to get hit, and listen, I think you have to tune it out.”
“You obviously have to be tuned into it because you have to know what’s being said, but at the same time you have to take it all with a grain of salt, and you know, if they weren’t talking about you, you wouldn’t be doing something right and it’s important to keep it in context, otherwise quite frankly you’d probably end up killing yourself out of depression.”
It’s an interesting choice of words since many insiders have also made note of Trump’s own alleged depression. Trump was described as depressed by the Russia scandal in May and in early in August, it was reported that the White House gives Trump two folders of positive news clippings every day to boost his ego.
The White House even held a cabinet meeting and demanded that participants complimented Trump to lift him out of his depression.
Eric Trump has essentially admitted that his dad is depressed and mentally unstable, and can’t take criticism as the President of the United States. If that’s the case, President Trump is in for a very long four years.
