DEMENTIA AND THE WhiteHouse √



EL PRESIDENTE DEMENTE 



TRUTH AND CONS-SEQUENCES

JENNIFER SENIOR  OPINION COLUMNIST NY TIMES     (She Really Says it All)
Since the early days of the Trump administration, an impassioned group of mental health professionals have warned the public about the president’s cramped and disordered mind, a darkened attic of fluttering bats. Their assessments have been controversial. The American Psychiatric Association’s code of ethics expressly forbids its members from diagnosing a public figure from afar.

Enough is enough. As I’ve argued before, an in-person analysis of Donald J. Trump would not reveal any hidden depths — his internal sonar could barely fathom the bottom of a sink — and these are exceptional, urgent times. Back in October, George T. Conway III, the conservative lawyer and husband of Kellyanne, wrote a long, devastating essay for The Atlantic, noting that Trump has all the hallmarks of narcissistic personality disorder. That disorder was dangerous enough during times of prosperity, jeopardizing the moral and institutional foundations of our country.

But now we’re in the midst of a global pandemic. The president’s pathology is endangering not just institutions, but lives.


EDITORS OPINIONS BASED ON COMMENTARY FROM OTHERS

For more than a three years now, almost four, I’ve been hearing from people in the inner circles of official Washington – GOP lobbyists, Republican pundits, even a few Republican members of Congress – that Donald T-RUMP is remarkably stupid.  Wow, Holy Crap Batman, Coals to Newcastle, Beer to Football games, Hookers to Vegas… they just found all this out?  What a discovery…

How revealing, what great genius it took to surmise Captain Bone Spurs was stupid…  I figured they couldn’t be right because you can’t really be stupid and  become President of the United States. But what I had not taken into consideration how STUPIDER the voters were… sometimes they can surprise you with an overdose of frickin ignorance and susceptibility.

  • When he was Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called T-RUMP a “ Frickin moron”.   
  • Journalist Michael Wolff wrote a book called “Fire and Fury,”  and interviewed more than 200 people who dealt with T-RUMP as a candidate and president, including senior White House staff members. Here are comments
  • In it, National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster calls T-RUMP a “dope.” 
  • Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin referred to him as an idiot.
  • Former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus refer to him as an “idiot.”  ( idiot is popular) 
  • Rupert Murdoch also said T-RUMP is a “f—king idiot.”
  • Trump’s chief economic adviser Gary Cohn describes T-RUMP as “ dumb as sh-t,” explaining that “T-RUMP won’t read anything — not one-page memos, not the brief policy papers; nothing. 
  • When one of Trump’s campaign aides tried to educate him about the Constitution, Trump couldn’t focus. “I got as far as the Fourth Amendment,” the aide recalled, “before his finger is pulling down on his lip and his eyes are rolling back in his head.”
  • Trump doesn’t think he’s stupid, of course. As he recounted, “I went to an Ivy League college … I did very well. I’m a very intelligent person.”   Yet Trump wasn’t exactly an academic star.  One of his professors at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business and Finance purportedly said that he was “the dumbest goddamn student I ever had.”  No one is supposed to know of the Donations by daddy to the school, thats a secret.
  • ED:  I simply see him as the biggest scumbag that ever stepped foot on the WhiteHouse lawn.


LET’S START WITH THE BASICS 

FIRST  —   Narcissistic  personalities like T-RUMP harbor sky-scraping delusions about their own capabilities. They exaggerate their accomplishments, focus obsessively on projecting power, and wish desperately to win.

What that means, during this pandemic: Trump says we’ve got plenty of tests available, when we don’t. He declares that Google is building a comprehensive drive-thru testing website, when it isn’t. He sends a Navy hospital ship to New York and it proves little more than an excuse for a campaign commercial, arriving and sitting almost empty in the Hudson. A New York hospital executive calls it a joke.  But it’s a big photo-op for the schmuck.

SECOND  —  The grandiosity of narcissist personalities belies an extreme fragility, their egos as delicate as foam. They live in terror of being upstaged. They’re too thin skinned to be told they’re wrong.

What that means, during this pandemic: Narcissistic leaders never have, as Trump likes to say, the best people. They have galleries of sycophants. With the exceptions of Drs. Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx, Trump has surrounded himself with a Z-team of dangerously inexperienced toadies and flunkies — the bargain-bin rejects from Filene’s Basement — at a time when we require the brightest and most imaginative minds in the country.

Faced with a historic public health crisis, Trump could have assembled a first-rate company of disaster preparedness experts. Instead he gave the job to his son-in-law, a man-child of breathtaking vapidity. Faced with a historic economic crisis, Trump could have assembled a team of Nobel-prize winning economists or previous treasury secretaries. Instead he talks to Larry Kudlow, a former CNBC host.

Meanwhile, Fauci and Birx measure every word they say like old-time apothecaries, hoping not to humiliate the narcissist — never humiliate a narcissist — while discreetly correcting his false hopes and falsehoods. They are desperately attempting to create a safe space for our president, when the president should be creating a safer nation for all of us.

THIRD  —  Narcissistic personalities love nothing more than engineering conflict and sowing division. It destabilizes everyone, keeps them in control.  
What that means, during this pandemic: Trump is pitting state against state for precious resources, rather than coordinating a national response. (“It’s like being on eBay,” complained Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York last week.) His White House is a petty palace of competing power centers. He picks fights with Democratic officials and members of the press, when all the public craves is comfort.   
Narcissistic personalities don’t do comfort. They cannot fathom the needs of other hearts.

FOURTH  —  Narcissistic personalities are vindictive. On a clear day, you can see their grudges forever.   What that means, during this pandemic: Trump is playing favorites with governors who praise him and punishing those who fail to give him the respect he believes he deserves. “If they don’t treat you right, don’t call,” he told Vice President Mike Pence.

His grudge match with New York is now especially lethal. When asked on Friday whether New York will have enough ventilators, Trump bluntly answered “No,” and then blamed the state.


AND MOST RELEVANT, AS FAR AS HISTORY IS CONCERNED: 

NARCISSISTIC PERSONALITIES ARE WEAK…

What that means, during this pandemic: Trump is genuinely afraid to lead. He can’t bring himself to make robust use of the Defense Production Act, because the buck would stop with him. (To this day, he insists states should be acquiring their own ventilators.) When asked about delays in testing, he said, “I don’t take responsibility at all.” During Friday’s news conference, he added the tests “we inherited were “broken, were obsolete,” when this form of coronavirus didn’t even exist under his predecessor.

This sounds an awful lot like one of the three sentences that Homer Simpson swears will get you through life: “It was like that when I got here.”   Most people, even the most hotheaded and difficult ones, have enough space in their souls to set aside their anger in times of crisis. Think of Rudolph Giuliani during Sept. 11. Think of Andrew Cuomo now.

But every aspect of Trump’s crisis management has been annexed by his psychopathology. As Americans die, he boasts about his television ratings. As Americans die, he crows that he’s No. 1 on Facebook, which isn’t close to true.

But it is true that all eyes are on him. He’s got a captive audience, an attention-addict’s dream come to life. It’s just that he, like all narcissistic personalities, has no clue how disgracefully — how shamefully, how deplorably — he’ll be enshrined in memory.


We Simply See Him As A Mental Health Issue,  It’s True and That Is The Issue.

He is Unfit To Serve And Thanks To You The Problem Is, You Are Also Guilty

You help spread his lies, so we see you as weak, ignorant, and greedy for supporting him for you are believing his place on this earth is for you.  Better for you to try kissing a Black Mamba or Western Diamondback Rattlesnake and if you support T-RUMP, even Jesus can’t help you and the outcome will be the same.

But, whats more important, his quest “ To end corruption and clean up the swamp”.  He did… He replaced the good Obama swamp with a bad cesspool of T-RUMP stooges, liars, crooks, imbeciles, and incompetents, losers… many of whom are in jail now, bad choices all around many based on their campaign contributions.  Pay T-RUMP for your job…What have we learned?  Simple you want to end corruption, look right in the mirror… if you voted for him you helped screw America.  That makes you as guilty as him


  • He keeps going back to the past, the 2016 election, Hillary, Comey, Parades, phony audience counts and fake news about the people counted at the inauguration that he lied about and now believes his own lies.  And so forth.  Depressives dwell in the past and alternative realities. He thrives on blamesmanship.  He is so badly equipped mentally to handle current events, he repeats himself using the past.

  • He tells us of his great works, ( So far we can’t really find any)  is book is the American Version of Mein Kamph, something Hitler wrote while in confinement whereas he knows nothing of current events or what really happening today because he does not read, he watches FOX news who speak of his glorification. They are liars too, so they get along and the scumbirds who work there get great paychecks for tabloid news reporting.

  • He lies and they swear to it.  He claims to be the Chosen One.  TRUE, this week he was chosen and voted the biggest asshole in the world, chosen well above all others.  It wasn’t even a fair sh*t flinging, he diarhetically out-sh*t the competition…

  • He does not get good security briefings and really hasn’t got a clue about whats really happening. 

  • He relies on Sean Hannity and Lou Dobbs both of whom should have been boiled in oil long time ago, as both are just about anything bad I can think of but true T-RUMP-E-TERS, liars and scumbirders.

  • He talks about his great business epics.  Whereas when scrutinized were failures and bailouts to the tune of a billion dollars and he survived by bankruptcy, screwing all his partners and Daddy’s money he received 410 million, nice start for a “ self made man”.

  • HIS LOSSES WERE CLOSE TO A BILLION OVER TEN YEARS  —  That’s how much money Donald Trump’s businesses lost from 1985 to 1994, according to The New York Times. The newspaper learned the details about a decade’s worth of Trump’s tax records, which indicate that he lost more money than nearly any other individual US taxpayer during that time period.  Thats why he wanted them hidden.

  • His remarks are Junior or Middle school equivalent, he repeats a lot of simple words like great, bigly, terrific wonderful, really good job, and so forth when he is in a complimentary mode which is usually some ignorant cabinet flunky or staffer who got lucky that day.  

  • His lame cabinet — All unfit for the position they are in.  We call them placemats.   All supporting the fallacies and corrupt money-making modes Donald operates in.  The others don’t say much, and do nothing or pretend and screw things up.

  • When his remarks are usually a lie which he denies the next day and calls it Fake Media, thats why he can’t have  a real press conference since his short time statement ad hoc shooting from the hip, he can’t remember.  His mind in not on the subject it is on some form of hate or retaliation. 

Note:    All press folks carry small tape recorders to justify his absurd, hilarious and totally frickin stupid remarks so they cannot be questioned…

 

  • It will make very little difference as to whether T-RUMP is reelected in 2020 as it is the defining trait of his presidency and will be his lasting legacy on politics.  
                   HE HAS MADE THE BIG LIE ACCEPTABLE
  • On the first point, it's important to remember that Trump didn't win in 2016 because people thought he was honest and trustworthy.  Just 33% of voters said they believed him to be honest and trustworthy, according to exit polling, while 64% said he was not.
     
  • Most remarkably, 1 in 5 people who said T-RUMP wasn’t honest or trustworthy voted for him anyway.  They voted out of hate for the incompetency of the Federal Government and so-called corruption which was nothing more than greed , money, power, caused by a systemic methodology of doing business by corrupt politicians like McConnell and others. 
      
  • Generally that fits in the category of blooming idiot syndrome. Instead of eliminating a few scumbags, you replaced the government with T-RUMPS scumbags who are really, really from any planet in our solar systemURANUS

  • That will be the T-RUMP legacy — no matter whether he loses in 2020 or wins a second term. A legacy that not telling the truth is OK — as long as you get away with it.   Four Presidents lied to us about Viet  Nam.  Even today my intel tells me we are not getting the real story about Afghanistan.  That facts are fun things to play with.  That reality is in the eye of the beholder.  

  • It’s sad that there are no more Harry Truman’s.  He was strong, determined and honest. It took guts to use the bomb, it takes guts to be honest with the people, these are traits  Donald “Bone Spurs” T-RUMP is missing.  Bully’s act like that, most like T-RUMP are armchair warriors, cowards, not leaders.
