There is no question that Trump is bat shit crazy. The problem is that it is nearly impossible to design a government capable of dealing with political insanity simply because it functions in a political universe, which is to say who is to determine crazy? I mean, if he is crazy the way you like crazy, then he is not crazy to you, and in a democracy don’t you count? Catch 22.
