UnNews:Trump confusing presidency with The Apprentice
Monday, July 31, 2017
After firing communications director Anthony Scaramucci after just 10 days, President Donald Trump is rumored to be suffering from delusional episodes, in which he believes that he is not the president but rather still the host of hit show The Apprentice.
Trump, who has now fired eight major officials, including three in the last 10 days, was the host of the NBC game show for eleven years.
He was said to have taken inspiration from many of the show's contestants, who largely tried to bluff their way to a position they were not qualified to do, when he ran for the presidency last year.
Now, however, with the dismissals of Scaramucci, Reince Priebus and Sean Spicer all coming within two weeks, questions have been asked about the president's mental state.
One White House insider told UnNews: "This is just the tip of the iceberg. These are the firings that, for whatever reason, became public knowledge and therefore fact. Behind closed doors, he is firing people all the time but that never gets out. He fired his son over that whole no-wait-I-did-meet-that-lawyer-from-Russia thing. He made Ivanka head of the CIA one day and then fired her before she even opened her mouth. Melania Trump didn't even come to the White House at first because he had fired her at the end of his campaign.
"Mike Pence has been fired more times than Donald Rumsfield's hunting rifle."
Washington psychiatrist Joanna Corey explained Trump's disorder: "Faced with a stressful situation, the human being will react in any number of ways. One possible defense mechanism is the tendency to regress back to a period in which one felt more in control. It might come as a surprise to his voters, but it may just be that Donald Trump had found his level more when he was the presenter of a game show, than when he was asked to run the world's largest super power."
Kenan Thompson, from Saturday Night Live posted a complaint on Twitter about the president's constant changes of personnel: "With Spicer we had time to write that Melissa McCarthy sketch. Scaramucci had so much going for him - the nickname, the hutzpah, the bravado, the fact he said he wasn't there to suck his own dick.
"Now we are only gonna get one show out of him. This president gives so much to us, but he takes too."
