President Trump’s televised meltdown

To the Editor:

The American people are witnessing a president having a mental meltdown in real time on national television. At his first news conference, Trump attacked the media and tried to convince us that he isn’t a failure.
Trump called the Russia scandal fake news, and then contradicted himself by blaming Obama appointees for leaking information that he claimed is not real. However, if the classified information is real, the Russian scandal can’t be fake news.
Obviously, this press conference was to engage in damage control, but ended up destroying his credibilty with an event that was incoherent, centered on whining, lying and self-pity, rather than governing the USA. I can’t believe that his supporters actually think he is restoring America’s leadership in the world.
