Michael D'Antonio is author of the book "Never Enough: Donald Trump and the Pursuit of Success" (St. Martin's Press). The opinions expressed in this commentary are his.

(CNN)It began with the hosts of "Fox & Friends" beaming at him through the camera, like parents besotted with a first child.

Then, obviously triggered by CNN's Town Hall with former FBI Director James Comey -- "I watched leaking, lying Comey last night. ... I hated to do it" -- President Donald Trump launched into a disjointed rant that revealed his mind to be a frightening and chaotic place.

There, he is practically perfect and just about everyone is out to get him.
The hosts' smiles turned to sober looks of concern as a decompensating Trump lurched from one topic to the next. Highlights included:
That Comey has "been leaking for years. ... He did an illegal act and he said it himself in order to get a special counsel against me. ... He is guilty of crimes."
His longtime "fixer" Michael Cohen, who was recently raided by the FBI, is invoking his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination in connection with an adult film star's lawsuit "because he's got other things, he's got businesses. ... But I'm not involved." Besides, Cohen only did "a tiny, tiny little fraction" of the legal work Trump needed.
Investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 election are a "witch hunt" that have placed a "phony cloud" over him.
He deserves an "A-plus" grade thus far in his presidency.
"You look at the corruption at the top of the FBI. It's a disgrace."
Trump's nominee to run the Department of Veterans Affairs withdrew because Sen. Jon Tester, who revealed serious questions about his performance as White House physician, was motivated by politics.
Trump's Justice Department, which oversees the most important probe, is filled with people "who shouldn't be there," and thus the President is "disappointed" in the department's performance.
Trump failed to acknowledge his wife's birthday with a present because "I'm very busy to be running out looking for presents, OK?"
In roughly 20 minutes Trump aired his thoughts and feelings at a manic rate that reminded me of the comedian Robin Williams at his peak.
Hillary Clinton, CNN ("fake news") and Kanye West all got their mentions. The difference, of course, is that Williams was a brilliantly funny man. The President wasn't trying to be funny at all. He was instead making a case for himself as a great leader besieged on all sides by terrible enemies.

Trump: Cohen case doesn't have to do with me 01:33
Trump's paranoia, a lifelong trait that he has admitted is part of his makeup, was so evident in his monologue that it constitutes a case study in delusion.
At one point he noted, "I'm fighting a battle against a horrible group of deep-seated people." At another he announced, "Look at others CNN, they will have a council of seven people and of the seven people everyone is against me. Where do they even find these people?"
As "Fox & Friends" co-host Brian Kilmeade then offered his own seemingly disconnected observation -- "I'm not your doctor"-- he expressed what many viewers, including me, must have felt: Trump was on the verge of some sort of meltdown. He needed not an interviewer but an intervention.

Indeed, no medical degree is required to recognize that the President had gone off the rails. Jumping from topic to topic, he offered raw emotions, non sequiturs and florid exaggerations. His VA nominee is deserving because he has a fine son at the US Naval Academy. The porn star he is alleged to have had sex with is "crazy Stormy Daniels."
A president's words matter, which is why every president in modern times has taken care to speak in a coherent and measured way so he could be understood. Some, such as George W. Bush, were chided for their occasional struggles with the English language. But their words never indicated they were unreliable or unhinged.
Trump sounded as if he wrote down a bunch of phrases on little scraps of paper, tossed them into a hat and then took them out, one by one, to shout out on live TV.
Trump's performance was a disturbing reflection of both his undisciplined mind, and his unprincipled character.
It was an abuse of his office, and of the American people who deserve much more than the sloppy, emotional, self-indulgent performer who seems to be pretending he's President.
Even the cheery hosts of "Fox & Friends" turned grim-faced as Trump ranted, and it was left to Kilmeade to put a stop to the babbling.
"We could talk all day but looks like you have a million things to do," he said, as if to remind Trump that he is President of the United States. Trump took the hint and ended the performance, leaving the world to tremble at the madness.

goob,

Are you online? We need a Crooked Hillary update.


MartinD28 - 4/27/2018 at 12:45 AM

I listened to some of Trump's rant today. Somebody needs to calm that guy down. He's getting worse by the day. Presidential is not a word to describe the occupant of the WH


OriginalGoober - 4/27/2018 at 01:08 AM

Sounded like a great interview to me. President got a bit heated when the Fox Hosts brought up disgraced James Cuommey. Of course he changed his demeanor when dealing with fake news CNN and leaking Cuommey. Can we get an answer why he interviewed Crooked Hillary and didnt record or document the meeting? In fact he wrote the exoneration memo before the meeting . The FIX WAS IN!!! Instead we get these ridiculous note to self memos by Couommmmey who never practiced this before Trump. Sad..... GO TRUMP.. MAGA !

GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP. STAY STRONG!

We will be OK as soon as they can find a crime committed by Crooked Hillary. Goob knows she committed crimes, we just need 7 more years of investigation to find them.

Maybe if they pull all of the resources currently being devoted to the Trump investigation that has produced inditements and guilty pleas, they could conduct another Benghazi investigation.

Will not happen because Trey Gowdy is retiring from Congress. This will be a major disappointment to Goob. Got to find something to stick to HC. She is guilty and nothing but faked and trumped up allegations on Trump.

Goob bringing the wood! Attaboy! I guess you're on the Kanye Kardashian bandwagon too... I might have to hop on... Deep down (as in Deep State), I'm a closet Kardashian...

MAGA is right! Make America Gay Again!

Try not to let it bother you so much. And I don't get the Comey spelling joke. What is the reference? Anyone know? George Carlin he is not.

Who are you saying this to, Trump or the Trump supporters? And why would anyone need to stay strong?

Maybe he's telling Cohen and everyone else who has the goods on Trump to stay strong and not flip. I'd be scared too if I was a Trump supporter. It will be very embarrassing for Trump supporters when the full extent of Trump's corruption comes out.

Unhinged is about right . . .

They'll blame the president's corruption on President Obama. Remember everything is his fault... even getting Bin Laden!

I think his spelling error is some kind of smack at either Andrew or Chris Cuomo, or both.

You know, because one is a Dem. politician and the other works for a real news network that doesn't kiss an orange azz.

I have no idea. I don't actually care. But I'm sure we can count on OriginalGoober to tell us when he wants to distract us from whatever stupid thing Trump did.

How about you, did you run out to the newsstand to get your Stormy issue?

Don't keep us wonderin', indeed. Actually we aren't wondering, bro, but it is one of the stranger aspects of Whipping Post, gotta say. Maybe it's a hormone imbalance of some kind, some endocrine thing, who knows.
