NYT’s Friedman: We Have a ‘Disturbed,’ ‘Demented’ Man as President
Breitbart ^ | January 11th, 2019 | Pam Key

Posted on 01/12/2019 8:11:03 AM PST by KC_Lion

Friday on CNN’s “The Situation Room,” New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman described President Donald Trump as “demented.”

Friedman said, “It’s really sad. This is a party that has simply laid down for a demented man. They have been laying down for anyone who would energize their base, going back to Sarah Palin and the Tea Party, and now it’s Trump.”

He added, “We’re really risking our luck here. How long can this go on? We have a disturbed man as president. That’s very clear. We have a party that is not ready to stand up to it. What worries me is now we’re threatening our institutions. Look, what he did describing the judges as Bush judges and Obama judges. Thank God John Roberts said, they aren’t Obama judges and Bush judges. They’re just judges. Look what he has been doing with the military. Saying the people who are out of work now, government workers, they are mostly just Democrats.”

Thank You for that Thomas "Loopy" Friedman.

It is now transparent as a window that labels now mean nothing. (Republican, Democrat, Independent, Progressive, Fiscal/Social Conservative)

It is only America against The Uniparty.

No, we don’t. Barack Obama left January 20, 2017.

There once was a kingdom ruled over by a fair and righteous king. One day, an evil witch descended upon the well from which the people drank, and poisoned the water. The very next day everyone but the righteous king drank the poisoned water. And they all went insane. All but the king that is. For several days after, the people wondered aloud, “What happened to our king,” they shouted in the streets, “Has he gone insane?” So the king went and drank from the poisoned water, and everything was well again.

Trump is demented?

Thomas Friedman wrote a book, "The World is Flat".

Friedman himself is a strong advocate of those changes (globalism), calling himself a "free-trader" and a "compassionate flatist", and he criticizes societies that resist the changes. He emphasizes the inevitability of a rapid pace of change and the extent to which the emerging abilities of individuals and developing countries are creating many pressures on businesses and individuals in the United States; he has special advice for Americans and for the developing world (but says almost nothing about Europe).

Destroyed his own credibility. Claiming that Sarah Palin is demented.

Thomas Friedman is the apologist for the Communist Chinese who thinks one party rule is oh so wonderful and efficient. Well, at least if it’s *his* party.

Friedman is demented. An embarrassment to his profession.

Thomas Friedman’s writing talents would be better utilized composing the ingredients section on the labels of Campbell’s Soup cans.

The proof is always that anyone who disagrees with the righteousness of my opinion is "disturbed and demented," or they'd surely see the error of their ways.

That is an old meme, already ran through the pied pier led media groupies: Trump is a mental case. Then he got a psycho evaluation and that was a quick end to it. Friedman must have had high enough hopes to revive it. Sorry, Tom, that ship has sailed. I thought the latest this past week was just a claim of Trump being evil incarnate. I guess that fizzled already, too.
