I have come to the conclusion that our lying jackass president has a communicable disease which, for want of a better name I will call "Disaster". The initial signs seem to be that when in contact with Trump, for any amount of time, a person starts to lie. They start out honest but then lying takes hold. We have seen this most recently in the case of General Kelly who, according to most accounts had led a rather splendid life of honesty and integrity. In one fell swoop, however, he attacked a member of congress, lied about a phone call, attacked a war widow and just kept it up until he had destroyed a life of doing the honest and right thing. We have also seen this with virtually any and all people that speak for Trump. They all, male or female, end up lying with abandon and, once in the full grip of the disease, lie when the truth is actually better! No sense in listing all of those that have fallen to the dark side but I expect most are aware of this one.

If I am right about this the sooner he goes the better our entire nation will be. His core supporters, for instance, ALL lie with a will and, literally, are proud to state that they prefer 'alternate' facts to real (verifiable) facts. ( I have actually seen people do this!!) Hopefully we can get rid of him before his disease takes over even more of the exposed. Once this happens, perhaps, the legislators of the right can recover enough to stop with the baloney and knuckle down to actually do what is best for their own supporters than those with the big bucks.

Mr Trump suffers from a personality disorder and is incapable of doing anything different than he does. He must lie to himself and others in order to build a world in which he is the greatest etc.

Gen Kelly despite the fact he was confirmed by the Senate has a choice. He can either resign or try and mitigate the damage done by Mr Trump. Several years ago people talked about Gen Powell as if he had only one choice. Here we see the dilemma these people have.

Gen Powell came out politically damaged as will Gen Kelly. Both of these guys are too smart to not have known what the real consequences of how their actions would result if they failed.
