Who is "us all"?

This guy is “us all”. Ten bear hugs if you can name him.

Unfortunately, it's more a politician's mental health—or doubt about—rather than his/her physical state that worries me. Drumpf is obviously a narcissist with an overarching sense of self-entitlement, and with a born-to-rule mentality coupled with delusions of grandeur. A dangerous combo for the entire planet.

I'm still trying to come to terms with, and comprehend how it could be that the GOP seriously reckoned this buffoon was their best chance as POTUS. Were there no other suitable candidates that didn't have major personality disorders?

I think what happened is that Trump managed to pack his ass into the clown car that was the original set of (16?) contenders for POTUS on the GOP side. He isn't really even a Republican, based on prior politics. I think that says a bit about the process of selecting a candidate in this country. The fact that a lot of republicans are distancing themselves from this loon is telling, in that regard.

That's one of the things I really don't get about Trump. He's rich enough to buy and sell politicians by the dozen. Why does he want to become one?

If I was a narcissistic asshole, why wouldn't I want to have the most powerful position in the world? Nothing else matters as long as you get to sit in that comfy chair in the oval office. Not to mention, you get to have a painting of yourself hung up everywhere. That's all Trump really wants. He doesn't ultimately care about "making America great", he just wants to be the most powerful person in the world. Imagine how giddy that would make him.

Google not needed: Robert Stroud.

Not sure how Mr. Stroud = All of Us - his accomplishments are well beyond the hoi polloi, the dark as well as the enlightened.

Very true. The "medical report" sounds like it was dictated by Trump though. I can hear his voice proclaiming himself to be "extraordinarily excellent".

I've had the horrible thought that yes, he will lose the election but become a cult hero to the ignorant, bigoted people he attracts and he'll be mouthing off for years to come. Oh, the horror of it all.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

I think policemen should take words for what they are -- unable to inflict bodily harm, and not demanding physical "defense". If they're hurt by words alone, to the point that they violate their oaths, then they should probably look into a career in data processing, or selling trailers.

In Britain we have a really dumb law which the cops use ad infinitum, anyone swearing can be arrested under section 5 of the public order act. I was warned once and replied saying " so rape murder and pillage are fine as long as no one says any naughty words " the cop was not amused, but then they rarely are. Big Grin

Agreed. I fear that much damage has already been done.

It merits shooting when they don't just flap their mouth with "I will do whatever I want nigga.", along with reaching into their clothing (usually an area where someone would be carrying a weapon). That is when it is ok to shoot first.

Under those circumstances covering the person with your firearm should be sufficient surely, no need to shoot unless a firearm has been at least tentatively identified, as the perp pulls a weapon surely any cop worth his salt should be able to get off at least one or two rounds on target mind you I'm no expert though, any cops, ex cops want to educate us then please chime in.
