Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) made a Freudian admission on Thursday when he strongly implied that President Donald Trump is a toddler who needs adult supervision.
Back in 2017, former Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) took a major shot at Trump by referring to the White House as an “adult daycare center” in one of the most devastating tweets that year.
It’s a shame the White House has become an adult day care center. Someone obviously missed their shift this morning.

Ever since, Trump’s status as a man-baby has persisted, even culminating in the famous Trump baby blimp that has taken the world by storm.
Many Republicans would rather not admit that Trump is a tantrum-throwing toddler who has never been the adult in the room, even when he is in a room by himself.
But Grassley alluded to Trump being a helpless toddler on Thursday by asking “whoever keeps watch” on him to read a Wall Street Journal op-ed to him in the hope to influence his economic policies.
Whoever keeps watch on @realDonaldTrump at WH have the economist there especially Navarro read WSJ oped by Henninger This is what I’ve been preaching to the President for two yrs./President wld benefit fr reading it / IN TURN USA BENEFITS

Grassley’s blunder soon became an Internet hit as Twitter users pointed out that he basically admitted that Trump requires a babysitter while others used it as proof that Trump should be removed from office.
Grassley pleading to the daycare workers at the White House.

A bit of reality there from Grassley. Sadly the daycare staff has gone.

Sir; I disagree with you on many issues, but when the President Pro Tempore of the Senate and Chair of the Finance Committee has to resort to public notices like this to bring something to the attention of the President, then we are all in trouble.

If we need someone “keeping watch” over a President, maybe he doesn’t need to be President

A senator publicly asking a babysitter to have someone READ something TO the President of the United States is a very normal thing that happens in 2020.

Interesting, you acknowledge the issue and propose that the adults in the room take note. Many Americans hope that you will assist in truth and consequences for the President in 2020.

Um, if he needs someone to “keep watch on him” then he’s unfit for the office he holds.

My goodness the fact that a) you have to tweet this instead of either having access to someone to call or being able to assume someone competent there will figure it out on their own and b) you admit the president is nonfunctional and has a nanny…

Whoops. Grassley slipped up & confirmed what many of us have long suspected: POTUS is so mentally debilitated he needs supervision to function. Sad GOP would abuse someone in Trump’s state in such a horrific manner, but then parental separation, kids in cages, endorsing pedos…

Glad the POTUS needs toddler level monitoring.

This is a fairly humiliating slip-up for Republicans, especially as Senate Republicans prepare for the impending impeachment trial. The fact that Trump is a toddler who requires adult supervision day after day should be more than enough reason to remove him from office. They don’t even the articles of impeachment to justify it.
