You assume he is opened to their recommendations and treatment. Not this guy.

Trump has not just "gone bonkers." He has been bonkers all along and now even his own supporters are beginning to see it. It's not the smartphone they need to take away....

But we need our president to be a leader. We need a president who is so confident in himself and his actions that is skin is so thick that any insults would just ping or bounce right off it. We need a president to set a good example and as someone else mentioned in this thread, i personally would not allow him around my child.
I completely blame the american people (or at least the ones who brought trump to be our republican nominee, there were so many other better ones).
Just as twitter gives us an inside psychological evaluation of don, this message forum board gives us tiny case studies of his followers...they mirror each other.
I just do not want anyone, not even his supporters, to normalize this behavior. You can still support him and brag and tout all you want when he does good things, just please do not find excuses for his awful behavior. Please do not normalize this idiot.
However, they probably relate so well with him that the supporters honestly do not see any wrong-doing. don has done a great job of either mirroring his supporters or finding a niche of idiocracy that resonates with the supporters that this whole sect of behavior flies right over their head bc it is already normalized with them.
I grew up where this bad behavior was normal...i understand how easily it could happen to an average weak person. That is why its so sad to me that there is so much more for these people but they choose to ignore facts and the possibility of being better people...they would rather stick up for bloody facelift comments and make sense of blatant lies
Under Franklin D. Roosevelt, press conferences became less formal as journalists gathered around the president who was seated at his desk. At ease with the press (he maintained he was a journalist himself, claiming the status by virtue of having served on the Harvard Crimson as an undergraduate), he often teased his interrogators. And those whom he regarded as wrongheaded or otherwise irritating to him he consigned to his "Dunce Club."
Even so, it was still forbidden to quote the president directly. Blessed with a mellifluous speaking voice, FDR gave "fire-side" chats on the radio, which was becoming an everyday appliance in millions of homes. These talks are remembered today as a hallmark of his administration, allowing him to go over the heads of the print media and giving him unique access to the public mind.
