It’s no secret that Donald Trump is unraveling before the eyes of the American public in the face of proof that he committed impeachable offenses. During a press conference on Thursday, however, all new evidence of Trump’s instability was put on full display.

When a reporter asked Trump if he truly was insinuating that people like James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzoyk, and Lisa Page committed treason, which he was reminded is punishable by death, Trump readily agreed.
‘Look at Comey, McCabe, people higher than that. If you look at Strzok, if you look at his lover, Lisa Page, his wonderful lover. They talked openly. They didn’t use their private server because they didn’t want to get caught. So they used the government server. That was not a good move. He talked about the insurance policy just in case Crooked Hillary loses. That didn’t work out well for them. So you look at them.’
He mentioned McCain, Comey, and those who are investigating him. If anyone on The View doesn't believe this crazy autocrat, neo-Nazi shouldn't be impeached should also be depicted on the cover of the New Yorker… https://t.co/3hjmgMWZVl

Equally as alarming was his phrasing when referring to the officials charged with investigating Trump’s potential conspiracy with the Kremlin and the efforts he made to obstruct justice. He previously referred to these individuals as “18 Angry Democrats,” but he’s now ramping up the rhetoric, calling them “18 killers.”
‘For 40 million dollars, seriously, I would think that Mueller and his group of 18 killers have gone over my taxes, they’ve gone over my financial statements, they’ve gone over them to a level that no one has gone over them before, and they were not brought up. They were not discussed, even. I have great statements.’
REPORTER: Sir, the constitution says treason is punishable by death. You've accused your adversaries of treason. Who specifically are you accusing of treason?

In a display that only made sense to Trump, somehow, this was followed by a recital performed by his advisors in which each was asked about Trump’s demeanor where they all agreed that, sure, Trump is a “very stable genius.”
