Excellent analysis of Trump’s mindset, or lack thereof. Anyone seriously trying to “figure him out” (i.e. the media) is engaging in a fool’s errand. The man relishes in confounding observers because he himself doesn’t know what he’ll do or say from one minute to the next. Megalomaniacs are consumed with self-import and thrive on exploiting the opportunity of the moment. They are the antithesis of deep, rational thought; and, for that reason, deserve no substantive consideration of their rhetorical ramblings.

Another day, another con.

Agent Orange issued an “explanatory” tweet yesterday:

Ratings challenged @CNN reports so seriously that I call President Obama (and Clinton) “the founder” of ISIS, & MVP. THEY DON’T GET SARCASM?

And our journalists proceeded to discuss in earnest any possible differences between “jokes” and “sarcasm,” continued to wonder why Trump does not seem to be interested in “pivoting,” and engaged in mind-numbingly pointless “debates” with Trump’s thuggish surrogates whose job is to translate Trumpese into English by insisting that black is white and up is down, and anyone who does not believe so is itching for a fight. And they are all too happy to oblige.

This sordid spectacle boggles the mind more and more as our media types refuse to acknowledge the reality of the man’s apparent character defect. They seem to have come to terms, as much as that’s possible, with…

  1. One thing I do know. Years ago it was true that no one who worked for Trump could tell him he was wrong. He wouldn’t allow it. No matter what he said or did, he was always right. Sadly he was a horrible manager and his highest people managed many times to scam him out of money and property. It seems he has taken this same attitude into his campaign. It does make me wonder what a Trump Presidency would be like considering a president must take advice and even negative comments from his staff. Hugs

    • What Robert said.

      No need to wonder what kind of president he’d make. His character defect has been on full display for long decades, but especially so during this election. He is incapable of learning anything (a cognitive impairment of extreme narcissism) or taking reasonable advice from others. Negative comments? Forget it. People who have the misfortune of associating with an extreme (psychopathic) narcissist quickly learn to either tell him what he wants to hear or keep their mouth shut if they value their lives.

      I would bet my arm that one of the first moves of President Trump (may fates have mercy on us) would be curbing that pesky freedom of the press and speech in general. He’s already told us as much when he promised to “reform” libel laws to make it impossible for people to criticize him.

      And that would be just a beginning.

      Keep in mind, there is no bottom to these characters’ depravity.
