President Donald Trump may be suffering from "outright delusions" and is placing the nation in danger, Gabriel Schoenfeld, a senior adviser to the Mitt Romney's 2012 presidential campaign, says in a blistering opinion piece in Friday's New York Daily News.
"Something is deeply wrong with our president and the country is in danger. The danger will only be averted when the Republican leadership in Congress publicly acknowledges what they and the rest of the entire world already know: America's president is not wearing any clothes," writes Schoenfeld, a senior fellow at the Hudson Institute.
He points to Trump's "volcanic vent" at reporters during a Thursday press conference at the White House.
"In one breath, Trump says the stories reporting the Russia scandals engulfing his administration are 'fake news, fabricated' … In almost the very next breath he complains that those same stories are based upon illegal leaks coming from the intelligence agencies," Schoenfeld says.
"'The leaks are real,' [Trump] insists. 'I mean, the leaks are real…The leaks are absolutely real.' How can something be fake and absolutely real at the same time? … All this would be comical if it were not so alarming."
