‘Wackadoodle Commander-in-Chief’ Trump Is ‘His Own Biggest Enemy’
President Donald Trump is ‘his own biggest enemy’ on impeachment, according to columnist Richard Wolffe. Writing for the Guardian‘s U.S. edition on Friday, Wolffe argued that Trump is unfit for office and is owning hurting himself by his actions and public statements.
“If we’ve learned anything at all about the wackadoodle commander-in-chief by now, we know that the brazen bozo knows no bounds,” Wolffe writes.
“We’ve also come to discover that everyone who works near him eventually starts howling like a mad dog, whether or not they were unhinged on the day they were hired.”
“Perhaps we’ve been overthinking this. Perhaps, instead of gaslighting us all with some grand deception, Trump has been gaslighting himself into thinking he was kind of good at this media thing he calls the presidency,” he says.
Wolffe goes on to discuss Trump’s comments on the White House lawn on Thursday, where he openly asked Ukraine and China to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter.
“Admitting to your crimes in front of the TV cameras is a novel way to start your defense,” Wolff says.
“Extending those crimes to yet another country – this time, China – is certainly original. Seeking that help from a country you’ve dragged into an epic trade war is venturing into creative territory.”
“Did it ever cross our mad dog’s mind that maybe – just maybe – it wasn’t a great idea to smear the Bidens with the very same stuff that his own family produces every day of the week?”
“The impeachment saga that is only just starting will revolve around whether Donald Trump is unfit to hold the office of the president,” the article goes on.
“But we already know the answer to that. The real question is whether Trump is fit to hold a pack of Tide pods.”
