White House: It's 'disgraceful and laughable' to question Trump's mental fitness

  White House: It's 'disgraceful and laughable' to question Trump's mental fitness White House press secretary Sarah Sanders faced questions Thursday for the second day in the row about President Donald Trump's mental fitness to serve as president. "It's disgraceful and laughable. If he was unfit, he probably wouldn't be sitting there, wouldn't have defeated the most qualified group of candidates the Republican Party has ever seen," Sanders said, before praising Trump as an "incredibly strong" leader. The questions come in the wake of the chaotic picture painted of the President in Michael Wolff's "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.

Stephens starts out by describing his grandfather’s humble beginnings in Moldova, which the columnist says would surely qualify as one of Trump’s “shitholes.”

He continues:

I’m not alone. America is a nation of holers. It is an improbable yet wildly successful experiment in the transformation — by means of hope, opportunity and ambition — of holers into doers, makers, thinkers and givers. Are you of Irish descent? Italian? Polish? Scottish? Chinese? Chances are, your ancestors did not get on a boat because life in the old country was placid and prosperous and grandpa owned a bank. With few exceptions, Americans are the dregs of the wine, the chaff of the wheat. If you don’t know this by now, it makes you the wax in the ear.

Donald Trump is the wax in the ear.

Michael Wolff: Trump is 'bouncing off the walls' with anger over book

  Michael Wolff: Trump is 'bouncing off the walls' with anger over book Michael Wolff, the author of a newly released book about President Trump's White House, said he has heard that Trump is "bouncing off the walls" with anger over the book.Wolff told The Hollywood Reporter that he still has sources in the White House who have filled him i n on Trump's reaction to "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.""I hear that the president is very angry, or, let me be precise: I hear that he is truly bouncing off the walls," Wolff said.He added that he didn't get the sense that Trump "has thought of anything other than himself at any given time.

John McCain aligned himself Saturday with a scathing New York Times column that ripped President Donald Trump for his remark about immigrants “from sh*thole countries.” “ Must read ,” the Arizona Republican tweeted, along with a link to the piece.

Stephens continues by asking why the president thinks people from the countries he disparaged — reportedly Haiti, El Salvador and unspecified nations in Africa — “are any less fit to become Americans than the Norwegians he seems to fancy?”

“The obvious answer,” Stephens writes, “is racism, the same ‘textbook’ case that Paul Ryan spoke of in June 2016 after Trump called a federal judge’s fitness into question on account of his ethnic heritage.”

After wrapping up with a defense of immigrants and American ideals, Stephens lands on a blistering condemnation of the president:

Maybe there really is something wrong with the president’s head. Modify with any four letters you wish.
