Psychiatrists Say Mueller Report Offers More Proof Of Trumps Mental Decline

Donald Trump’s “reckless” response to the investigation into his campaign as detailed by special counsel “The singular reaction is perhaps indicative of the extent to which the president is, as with his contrary reaction to Russia’s attack on the integrity and validity of our process of electing a president, preoccupied with himself to the point where he does not even consider the good of the nation,” states The report bears an unwieldy title: “Mental Health Analysis of the Special Counsel’s Report on the Investigation Into Russian Interference in the 2016 Presidential Election.” The authors’ chosen subtitle, though, goes more to the heart of their thesis: “If One is Too Incompetent to Commit a Crime, Despite Trying Hard, Is One Competent …

Bet You Missed This Country Superstar’s ‘Game Of Thrones’ Cameo! – Perez Hilton

Apparently Chris the Wildling was killed in battle, because his eyes opened blue as he’s turned into a wight. Here’s the moment paused (and brightened): Nobody to …
