Former Republican congressman Adam Kinzinger suggests that Donald Trump may be genuinely “losing his mind.”
Questioning Trump’s Mental State
Adam Kinzinger’s recent appearance on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360” ignited a fiery debate as he expressed concerns about the mental state of former President Donald Trump, going beyond mere metaphor and suggesting that Trump might actually be “losing his mind.”
He Was Asked About Trump’s Posts
The backdrop for Kinzinger’s comments was a question posed by host Anderson Cooper.
His Legal Team Defends Him
The query centered around the First Amendment protection for Trump’s incendiary social media posts and public remarks, a stance his legal team has staunchly defended.
Trump’s Legal Teams Claims
Cooper probed, “Trump’s lawyers claim the former president’s post saying, ‘if you go after me, I’m coming after you’ is just political speech, has nothing to do with the case. I mean, do you buy that?”
Kinzinger’s response was swift and unequivocal. He dismissed the assertion as “garbage,” emphasizing that Trump is known for delivering statements in a manner that provides him with plausible deniability.
Trump Does It All the Time
Kinzinger pointed out that Trump’s ability to craft messages with dual interpretations has been consistent throughout his life and career.
He’s Been Doing This His Whole Career
“He’s really good at saying something, but in a way that you could somehow conceivably, at least with a straight face, argue that you mean something else. You see that through his whole life, through his whole career,” Kinzinger observed.
Questions About His Well-Being
The discussion quickly delved into more ominous territory as Kinzinger raised concerns about Trump’s psychological well-being.
‘I Think He’s Actually Going Insane’
“You see a man that is literally, I think, literally losing his mind. I don’t even mean that metaphorically. I think he’s actually going insane,” Kinzinger asserted.
His Words Have Consequences
He contended that Trump’s statements, even if couched as political speech, hold weight and potential consequences.
He’s Worried at How People Interpret His Words
Kinzinger expressed worry over the impact of such rhetoric on individuals who might interpret the words literally and subsequently take actions that could be harmful or dangerous.
A Fear for Safety
Kinzinger offered poignant examples of his constituents reaching out to his office in genuine fear for their safety due to perceived threats emanating from Trump’s words.
People Are Worried About Their Families
“I have a number of them, you know, reaching out to me in my office saying that Donald Trump said something bad at me and they’re taking that literally and they’re gonna come after me and my 18-month-old kid,” Kinzinger shared.
