In the wake of yesterday’s clusterfuck at/in the nation’s Capitol, the shit has hit the fan on the T-Rump’s mental faculties as a clear and present danger to America.

Although a goodly chunk of Americans could see this kind of shit coming from a mile away, the reality of the T-Rump finally freaking losing what little shit he ever had is a spot that caused some assholes to reassess their assholiness — per The Washington Post earlier this morning:
President Trump was ensconced in the White House residence Wednesday night and into Thursday morning, raging about perceived betrayals, as an array of top aides weighed resigning and some senior administration officials began conversations about invoking the 25th Amendment — an extraordinary measure that would remove the president before Trump’s term expires on Jan. 20.
A deep, simmering unease coursed through the administration over the president’s refusal to accept his election loss and his role in inciting a mob to storm the Capitol, disrupting the peaceful transfer of power to President-elect Joe Biden.
One administration official described Trump’s behavior Wednesday as that of “a total monster,” while another said the situation was “insane” and “beyond the pale.”
Fearful that Trump could take actions resulting in further violence and death if he remains in office even for a few days, senior administration officials were discussing Wednesday night whether the Cabinet might invoke the 25th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution to force him out, said a person involved in the conversations.
Meanwhile, Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf on Thursday issued the strongest critique of Trump yet from within the Cabinet.
Calling Wednesday’s events “tragic and sickening,” Wolf wrote in a statement, “I implore the President and all elected officials to strongly condemn the violence that took place yesterday.”
He vowed to remain in his position to ensure an orderly transition to the Biden administration.
William P. Barr, who resigned last month as attorney general, issued an even sharper condemnation of the president he served.
He called Trump’s conduct “a betrayal of his office and supporters,” adding in a statement to the Associated Press that “orchestrating a mob to pressure Congress is inexcusable.”
Mick Mulvaney, a former member of Trump’s Cabinet as White House chief of staff and director of the Office of Management and Budget, announced Thursday morning that he has resigned from his post as U.S. special envoy to Northern Ireland.
He said on CNBC that he informed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo: “I can’t do it. I can’t stay.”
All these assholes knew what the T-Rump was entirely capable of doing/being and on the way out the door tried to cover their asses, like Mulvaney: ‘“We didn’t sign up for what you saw last night. We signed up for making America great again. We signed up for lower taxes and less regulation. The president has a long list of successes that we can be proud of. But all of that went away yesterday.”‘
Or this nit-twit — ‘honored‘ my ass:

These people knew kids were forced into cages, knew the T-Rump was a vile, shitty person, yet remained — ‘honored’?
Another prime example is John F. Kelly, the T-Rump’s chief of staff for way-time enough to get a gist of how horrible the man — at the end of the Post story:
Kelly also seemed to voice regret about Trump’s election.
“We need to look infinitely harder at who we elect to any office in our land — at the office seeker’s character, at their morals, at their ethical record, their integrity, their honesty, their flaws, what they have said about women, and minorities, why they are seeking office in the first place, and only then consider the policies they espouse,” Kelly said.
Why didn’t Kelly show some spine, some decency, he’s a former fucking Marine, and speak out about the shitty shit he had to have witnessed first-hand in the White House..
And the one person who’d know the state of the T-Rump right now is his niece, Mary Trump, interviewed last night by Katie Couric:
Brief details via Queerty this morning:
“As far as my grandfather was concerned the worst thing you could be was a loser. And whenever Donald talks about how great he is he’s talking to his audience of one: my grandfather.
“His father looms very large for Donald, and everything he does is out of fear, so throughout the course of his life he’s actually never won anything legitimately including the last election. But he’s always been able to buy cheat or steal his way to the win because it doesn’t matter how you win: it just matters that you win.
“He can’t do that this time around … he’s been cheating to steal this election since the summer by claiming that … it was rigged, by telling people not to trust the Post Office or mail … he’s still lost, which is one of the reasons he’s freaking out.
“He also knows what’s facing him once he loses the power and the protection of the Oval Office.”
Finally, asked how she thinks her uncle was feeling, Mary said, “Donald is feeling, on the one hand, emboldened because they got away with it. I mean there were 13 arrests. I think a lot more people than that were wreaking havoc.
“On the other hand, he’s locked out of Twitter. I think that’s the same is true [for] Facebook. He’s probably more desperate than he’s ever been in his life, and I’m sorry to say this but short of Congress stepping in, impeaching and removing him, the next two weeks are going to be among the most dangerous in our country’s history and after today that’s actually really saying something.”
Not if you have any walking-around sense. Lots and lots of people have been saying that for at least five years now.
And this I just came across, the capper of the crapper (h/t for the tweet BJ):
