    Letter to my Congressional Delegation

    HE HAS ME WORRIED

    It is becoming increasingly evident that there is something radically wrong with our President. His long speeches are becoming more and more rambling , more and more confused and confusing, more and more evidence that he is not thinking rationally.
    Now, I want to make it clear. I am not a psychiatrist. I may be completely wrong about what is happening in and to the mind of Donald Trump. However, those far more knowledgeable about mental health than I am are beginning to voice frightening descriptions of what is happening to that mind. Their comments range from “deranged” to “on the point of a complete breakdown.”
    I am aware that diagnosis at a distance is a practice that should be rare on the part of such professionals, but there are very extenuating circumstances in this instance. If the leader of the most powerful nation in the world, who has his fingers only a few inches from the button that could wipe out millions of human beings, is hovering on the brink of complete madness, then I want to know what precautions are being taken for preventing that catastrophic result of his insanity.
    Since you are closer to the workings of our government than I am, I’m asking you to look into those precautions and to make a public statement about the extent to which they may or may not be put into practice should such action become necessary.
