Trump’s Co-Author Just Came Out And Questioned His Mental Health: He’s Losing It

President Donald Trump’s behavior is causing many people to question his mental health. And it’s not just coming from liberals or Democrats — former Republican Congressman Joe Scarborough, for instance, has expressed his doubts on the well-being of the president, this week calling for his cabinet and vice president to invoke the 25th Amendment Constitutional clause that would remove him from power.

Scarborough cited unnamed individuals close to the president who privately worried about the his mental health.

“People close to him say he is mentally unfit, people close to him during the campaign told me he had early stages of dementia,” he said.

Scarborough previously had a fairly decent relationship with Trump, interviewing him several times on his MSNBC show with cohost Mika Brzezinksi. But another former associate of Trump’s is also dishing out the president’s mental capacity, saying that he doesn’t have the ability to lead any longer.

Tony Schwartz, who co-wrote Trump’s best-selling book “The Art of the Deal” in the late 1980s, has been an outspoken critic of the president in more recent years, even suggesting he didn’t have the bona fides to lead during the presidential campaign. “I put lipstick on a pig,” Schwartz said about Trump back in 2016, admitting he made Trump look better as a person than he really was.

This week, Schwartz added more insights into how Trump, now president, was behaving. Speaking on MSNBC, Schwartz explained he had grave concerns.

“One of the problems we have right now is that we’re not very sympathetic to the psychological and to the psychiatric community [in the U.S.], but that’s who we need to be talking to right now” regarding Trump’s behavior, he said to host Ari Melber. “This is a man who is deeply mentally ill.”

Schwartz extended his concerns into a warning for the nation. “All of America needs to understand that this is a person who is now exceptionally dangerous because he is losing his grip” on reality, Schwartz said.

The practice of diagnosing the health of presidents from the sidelines has generally been frowned upon in the past. But Trump is no ordinary president — his obnoxious, bullyish behavior is beyond the pale, and when combined with his habit of forgetting the details recent events, it could indicate that he is not healthy enough mentally to be commander-in-chief.

That’s not good for the security and prosperity of the nation. We need to be confident that Trump’s leadership isn’t being hurt by some underlying mental or emotional health problems.

His cabinet should seriously think about invoking the 25th Amendment, and if they don’t, other avenues of removing the president from power need to be considered.
