Is he? How do you base that judgement? Where do you get his quotes from and how are they framed?

I'm not saying you are wrong, nor am I saying you are right. I just think a lot of people need to take a deep breathe and a step backwards to look at the whole picture going on.

I base my judgement on his tweets, his speeches, and his actions. He lies constantly, talks about himself constantly, takes time off constantly, and uses the Presidency for personal gain above all else. I don't know of any other President who was this patently a sociopath.

Oh, and he doesn't speak in complete sentences and is sexist and racist to boot.
