    Naval War College professor compares Trump’s Twitter meltdown to a banana republic dictator desperately clinging to power

    DON'T MISS STORIES. FOLLOW RAW STORY!

    As Donald Trump manically tweeted attacks on the FBI, the New York Times, the “Amazon Washington Post” and continuing reports of “chaos’ in the White Houseon Saturday morning, a professor at the Naval War College said the president is increasing sounding like a banana republic dictator under siege in his presidential palace.

    With Trump cranking out multiple tweetstorms attacking the press and federal law enforcement, following a bombshell report in the New York Times that the FBI opened a secret investigation looking into whether he is a Kremlin agent, military expert Tom Nichols sat back and marveled at the meltdown.


    Responding to Trump tweeting, “Lyin’ James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter S and his lover, agent Lisa Page, & more, all disgraced and/or fired and caught in the act. These are just some of the losers that tried to do a number on your President. Part of the Witch Hunt. Remember the “insurance policy?” This is it!” Nichols said it had a certain ring to it.

    “This is the kind of speech you give in Spanish in the early 1950s into a tinny microphone with the crackle and static of a fading kerosene generator and the sound of shouting and gunfire in the background approaching the presidential palace,” he tweeted.

    Tufts University international relations professor Danial Drezner piled on by sharing a clip from Woody Allens’ 1971 film “Bananas” about revolution.

    Of course.

    You know, I always go back to the Trump family. There were 5 kids, 3 boys. Only ONE was shipped off to military school.

    There is no deep state... That's an excuse Trump has used for decades.. He claims he's a victim and he's had it hard and that the system is rigged against him.


    To call Donald Trump a narcissist is, of course, to state the clinically obvious. There is the egotism of narcissism, the grandiosity of narcissism, the social obtuseness of narcissism. But if Trump is an easy target, he is also a pitiable one. Narcissism isn’t easy, it isn’t fun, it isn’t something to be waved off as a personal shortcoming that hurts only the narcissists themselves, any more than you can look at the drunk or philanderer or compulsive gambler and not see grief and regret in his future.

    The Crown prosecutor of Russia met with his father Aras this morning and in their meeting offered to provide the Trump campaign with some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and would be very useful to your father.

    Trump though is the first time I voted for a Republican president, based on the superiority of his ideas
