Hmmm…maybe that word does not mean what I think it means.
De Niro was at at again last night, this time while while introducing Meryl Streep at the National Board of Review gala.

I don’t care much for New York, never had.
But those few special New Yorkers? Priceless.
The very stable genius in the White House this morning took to burning up the Twitter machine in order to attain a peaceful accord with not only North Korea, but also in a genuine effort to calm both Palestinians and Israeli Jews. Finally, in what may be a bit of an overreach, the very stable genius reached out to Pakistan to reassure that country he doesn’t mean to nuke them into a sea of paved glass…
Hahahahahahahahaha. Just kidding!
Of course what the president* actually did was use the Twitter machine 1 to spin a few self-serving lies and blatantly clueless ‘defenses’ of his troubling mental ‘capacities.’
Meh – same as it ever was…
More interesting, in light of the recent publication of Fire and Fury (along with Mueller’s inevitable disclosure of the president*’s financial records), is the question of what happens with the president*’s stupidly loyal ReThug base, a cult who since the president*’s inauguration have screamed themselves hoarse in their mole like Jim ones like efforts to defend the risibly indefensible.
Surely the president* will want to reward their witless devotion?
Granted, the president* is not the type of man to break faith with his supporters once he has no more use for them 2, but…we do think the below vid might be indicative of current WH thinking.
Bonne chance, you rabid little bunnies.
The statement, an email this month from the executive committee of the American Psychoanalytic Association to its 3,500 members, represents the first significant crack in the profession’s decades-old united front aimed at preventing experts from discussing the psychiatric aspects of politicians’ behavior. It will likely make many of its members feel more comfortable speaking openly about President Trump’s mental health.
…Called the “Goldwater rule,” the prohibition on offering opinions about the mental state of public figures was adopted after some psychiatrists answered a 1964 survey on whether Sen. Barry Goldwater, the Republican presidential candidate that year, was mentally fit for the Oval Office. The rule states that it is unethical to offer a professional opinion about a public figure’s mental health, including the presence or absence of a disorder, without that person’s consent and without doing a standard examination. In March, the psychiatric association reaffirmed the rule.
…Although opposition to the Goldwater rule has existed for years, it intensified with Trump’s candidacy and then election. In October, a book titled “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 27 Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President” will be published.
