I am amazed that there are Americans who are going to vote for Donald Trump in the coming presidential elections. Amazed!

Here are opinion column headlines you get when you read the newspaper… These come from just this morning’s readings (23 August 2016).
“Australians are mortified by Trumps rise!” (by David Ignatius)
“No, Donald Trump, America Isn’t a Hellhole!” (by Paul Krugman)
“Donald Trump is a flake and a fraud!” (by Eugene Robinson)
“Trump’s repellent inner circle!” (by Michael Gerson)
“Donald Trump must think we’re all fools!” (by Danielle Allen)
“How Republican candidates can survive the Trump train wreck!” by Whit Ayres
And, there’s the one from a couple of days ago…
“You don’t need a psychiatrist to know there’s something wrong with Donald Trump!” (by Mathew Goldenberg)
All these are fine and good, but the best description of Donald Trump that I’ve come across during this political season is the one by Mark Cuban (entrepreneur and owner of the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks, Landmark Theatres and Magnolia Pictures…. ): “Bullshit crazy!”
I also like the take on Trump by psychiatrist Mathew Goldenberg (assistant professor at Yale University):
“Like many American’s, I have been personally appalled by much of Trump’s indecorous behavior as a candidate. He comes across as cantankerous, vain, impulsive, demeaning and ill-informed. I understand why people have raised questions about his mental health. It can be tempting to describe his behavior in familiar psychopathological terms.” (LA Times, August 23, 2016)
Don’t vote for Donald Trump! It would be so foolish! The man is bullshit crazy!
