Countless people — and not just Democrats — have been trying all last year, and before, to convey that Trump wasn’t up to the job. Even his inner circle concluded as much after a brief romance with the fantasy that they could make him into a useful president. His behavior, language, outbursts, impulsiveness — all suggested that he is “like a child,” as Wolff put it Friday on NBC’s “Today.” Worse, given those very characteristics, that he’s quite possibly not mentally competent to perform his duties.

Other interesting tidbits include that members of Trump’s Cabinet have called him an “idiot” and a “dope” behind his back. Would the two people in the back of the room who have not used these words to describe the president please raise your hand? We’re so glad you were able to join us before returning to the asylum today.

One needn’t look far for evidence. Most recent is Trump’s taunt to North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un that his nuclear button is bigger than Kim’s.

The truth will out, we keep telling ourselves. But will people believe it? That is the question.
