For whatever its worth, i have had serious concerns about Frankens mental stability for quite some time.

I think Trump is more bluster and show. He's selling something, and uses his outlandish commentary and eccentric behavior as part of the deal. He's crazy like a fox.

Oh, something like that has occurred to me. But, most unfortunately, though it may change, at this moment the Democratic Party is in full anti-Trump mode...with no dissent allowed or, as I can safely state, welcome.

Party of inclusiveness my lily white ass.

The Dems of the Civil Rights era would be ashamed.

A thread about congressional concerns over the presidents mental stability. Something all of us should be concerned about, not just now but always. And immediately what happens to the thread. On come the detractors and deflectors and turn the focus away from the president with slanderous statements about other people.

As the thread has already been completely sent off course, I will add that even as I am no expert on mental health, it is clear to my totally laymans perspective that there is something amiss with the mental health of those who refuse to even consider or question the mental health of a president who day after day acts as if he is doing a comedy routine of himself.

Al Franken was a SNL comedian before he got into politics. Anyone else remember that?

Yes, he was. Not a terribly memorable one, but yes.

My question is why is he being pushed forward, seemingly, into what amounts to a leadership position of the Senate Dems. He's not done anything terribly memorable in the Senate either that I'm aware of--I'll cheerfully learn other wise if someone knows of anything memorable he's done--since he's been in the Senate.

And that is why the Dems are toast. This focus on Trump as the anti-Christ type of thing is a miss-direction. The Dems need to focus on why they dropped the ball on the one yard line and why they will never get the ball again unless they dump all the old pro bowlers quickly and start drafting new stars for their party.

Because he was/is a celebrity. They are propping him up to see how people react to him. I bet they are jockeying him into position to run against Trump in 2020. They need a politically strong celeb to compete with Trump in the next election.

Franken is echoing some of the news stories I've seen this week (including an op-ed on this and another one saying that reporters are pretending that there's no problem.)

I don't think they'd go after him on a mental incompetence charge. He's made some monumentally inept moves but they're rooted in his belief that being President is exactly the same as being the CEO or the owner of a business. And while the rogue accounts and staff leaks certainly give a picture of a man who's not presidential material, there is no real constitutional support for removing someone because his style isn't "presidential."

Al Franken is a douche. Always has been. He turned politician because of his failing comedy career. Coincidentally, his once funny act on Saturday Night Live involved mocking the snowflake personalities we see from him and his friends daily.

I don't care what anybody says, Trumps nicknames for his critics are hilarious! "Pocahontas" is PERFECT for Elizabeth Warren because she's downright silly with her self-proclaimed Native American heritage. LOL, that's comedy!! "Crooked Hillary" is another great one.

Trump is just fine mentally, the problem is, the liberals have no idea how to have an actual discussion.

I think Franken is not right mentally.

Oh what, nobody cares? Yeah, that's what I thought. Feel like he's gonna see where his support is of he continues this line of attack.

Franken has dry humor, weird looks and brains. Love him. Being in comedy and politics, I don't think he has time for psychiatric evaluations but it doesn't take much to see that Trump is NOT ok mentally.

Ive been saying this for awhile. He reminds me of someone I know who is very dangerous without having power to push the button for WW3. I'm glad others (even the few republicans) are fessing up on this too.

He attended Harvard College where he majored in government, graduating cum laude (top 25% of the class) with a Bachelor of Arts in 1973. en.m.wikipedia.org...

NO, THEY BLOODY WELL DON'T!!

What they need to do is become is a party that represents everyone. Please do not try to tell me they represent me...I know better. I'm one of those life long democrats--well since I was 18, anyway...and they stopped representing me a long time ago.

This is not the party of equality. That fought and some died to end segregation. This isn't the party that fought labors fights to ensure fair labor practices and safe work places. Right now it's the party of the nanny-state. Get on the dole, we'll take care of you... Instead of fostering, as best they can, an environment of honest competition, and a fair chance fairly earned, it's the party of the hand out.

What the democratic party needs is a national candidate who can speak to just about everyone with a fair chance at being listened to, not ignored. I've heard Franken, and haven't been impressed. Where are the moderate democrats that they should be pushing? Lately, I have to search far and wide to find any.

Don't get me wrong, the GOP has the same bloody issue. Why do you think a RINO got elected on the GOP ticket? A man who was, and I suppose still is, a life long democratic supporter?

You got it.

He isn't playing their game, by their rules, therefore they have no understanding, or it's limited, of how to approach him. Or so I surmise.

He's not crazy. He's not nuts. He's different. To understand him, you have at least attempt to work with the man. Otherwise what is going to change?
