Senior Advisor Says Trump Reminds Him of His Demented Grandmother

In his October 11 column for "Vanity Fair," Gabriel Sherman reported "several people close to the president" characterizing him as "unstable," "losing a step," and "unraveling." Elaborating on those descriptions in an interview with Slate's Isaac Chotiner Sherman paraphrased a "very senior Trump adviser," who told him Trump had "lost a step." "This adviser said that Trump reminded him of his grandmother when she started to lose it a little bit in her later years," Sherman said.
