Over the last two weeks, the headlines have been dominated by two stories that have rocked Washington, D.C. and the White House. For Donald Trump, the pressure might finally be getting to him.

Trump trouble

It was just two weeks ago when Donald Trump surprised many by firing James Comey as director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Comey has been one of the most polarizing figures in Washington since the final days of the 2016 presidential election. Many Democrats and liberals believe his decision to bring up Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while serving as Secretary of State cost her the election, leading to a Trump victory in the process.

However, Comey has recently been more of a problem for Republicans as he's led the investigation into Russia's role in the election, including their potential link to the Trump campaign and administration. Over the last 24 hours, it was revealed that the former host of "The Apprentice" allegedly asked Comey to end the investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn over his relationship with Russia. After reportedly failing to give his loyalty to the president, Trump decided to terminate Comey. In addition, the Washington Post recently reported that Trump shared classified information with top Russian officials causing even more backlash against the White House. As reported by Jon Cooper in a pair of tweets on May 16, Trump is starting to crack.

According to Jon Cooper, the Chairman of the Democratic Coalition, citing sources inside the White House, Donald Trump is "losing it" and taking his frustration out on his staff.

"White House sources say Trump is cursing up a storm - ranting and raving," Cooper tweeted, before adding, "Yelling at staffers & using the 'F' word. He's losing it tonight."

In a follow-up post on Twitter, Jon Cooper went further and cited additional White House sources to note that many are worried Donald Trump could be suffering from "early dementia." "Sources say White House staff members are beginning to talk openly about their increasing concerns that Trump shows signs of early dementia," Cooper tweeted out.

The news of Trump's potential dementia was also confirmed by Gabriel Sherman of New York Magazine, citing MSNBC host Joe Scarborough as an additional reference.

Moving forward

After only four months in the White House, the constant stream of controversy and scandal surrounding Donald Trump appears to be causing cracks throughout the administration. With an approval rating dropping below 40 percent, only time will tell if the billionaire real estate mogul will be able to bounce back.
