'He's losing his s---': Trump's advisers are increasingly worried about his mental state (Business Insider link): President Donald Trump's aides and confidants are concerned about his mental state after days of erratic behavior and wild outbursts. "His mood changes from one minute to the next based on some headline or tweet, and the next thing you know his entire schedule gets tossed out the window because he's losing his s---," one former White House official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal conversations about the president, told Insider.
"He's deteriorating in plain sight," one Republican strategist who is in frequent contact with the White House told Insider on Friday.
But one person who was close to Trump's legal team during the Russia investigation told Insider his public statements were "nothing compared to what he's like behind closed doors."
"He's like a bull seeing red," this person added. "There's just no getting through to him, and you can kiss your plans for the day goodbye because you're basically stuck looking after a 4-year-old now."
Mod: Obviously bone spurs are the reason why Trump can't run in these primaries.
If state party bylaws allow, a party may choose to forego the primary or caucus process in favor of simply backing the incumbent. Now four state Republican parties have opted to disregard President Trump’s challengers and instead skip straight to declaring him their nominee: South Carolina, Nevada, Arizona, and Kansas.
