Donald Trump should have stayed in show biz. Omarosa Manigault and Roger Stone told you: Trump decided to run, after Obama humiliated him.
Talk Is Cheap
Ignore The Obvious
Dr. John Gartner, psychologist, psychoanalyst and former professor at the Johns Hopkins University Medical School:
“Trump is a "sexual sadist" who is "actively engaging in sabotage". He experiences great pleasure from sadism. One of the four components of narcissism is sadism, getting pleasure — maybe even sexual pleasure — from degrading, humiliating and harming your enemies.
What would Trump be like if he didn't have the restraints from the remnants of the United States Constitution or the Democrats in the House of Representatives? We have to wonder how many immigrants would be in concentration camps right now. How many FBI agents and Democrats and journalists would be in jail?
Donald Trump would not mind seeing some journalists killed. I don't think Trump sees the deaths of journalists as a bad thing. In totalitarian states like Russia, journalists are killed and the opposition is jailed. The courts are used to put people in jail for “corruption” when they dare to challenge the real corruption of the state. Donald Trump would be as bad as any of the other totalitarian leaders throughout history if he had the chance and the unrestricted power.”
The Home of Kushner’s Slum Housing. Baltimore
Former federal prosecutor and acclaimed author James D. Zirin:
“Trump learned how to use the law from his mentor, the notoriously unprincipled lawyer and fixer Roy Cohn whose motto was “Fuck the law.” Trump took Cohn’s scorched earth strategy to heart and used the law to attack others, to never accept blame or responsibility, and to always claim victory no matter how badly he lost.
He sued at the drop of a hat. He sued for sport; he sued to achieve control; and he sued to make a point. He sued as a means of destroying or silencing those who crossed him.
All this aberrant behavior would be problematic in a businessman. . . But the implications of such conduct in a man who is the president of the United States are nothing less than terrifying."
Denial Is A River In America
Dr. Lance Dodes, retired Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School:
“Trump is able to appear more in touch with reality when he is being worshiped. Indeed, when his primitive needs are not being challenged, he can look like a normal person — it's what has made him a successful con man. When he is challenged, however, his cruelty, sadism, paranoia, lack of conscience, incitement to violence and active pursuit of policies that kill people become obvious. These traits are properly described as "evil." In professional terms, they mean he is a psychopath.
Trump knows what he is doing, and he does not care. Many people cannot accept that Trump doesn't care about all this human suffering because they cannot grasp the idea of the president of the United States being as deeply disturbed as he is. That denial is a pretty normal reaction; nobody wants to believe we have a president who lacks human empathy and is willing for others to die for his personal gain.
Normal people have a tendency to project onto Trump their own humanity — their normal sense of empathy, care, concern for others, their sadness and loneliness. This is a mistake because Donald Trump has never shown the capacity for those feelings. There is nothing in his history or behavior to suggest he has any feelings beyond those of the predator: sadistic triumph if he can defeat or destroy others, and rage and violence if he feels attacked or is at risk of losing.“
Bandy Lee MED ’94 DIV ’95, formerly Yale-affiliated faculty member in the Department of Psychiatry in School of Medicine:
“In his constant attempts to redefine the truth against the wrongdoings he has enacted, Donald Trump behaves like an aggressive perpetrator who fundamentally has no respect for the rights and subjectivities of those in American society who disagree with him. He shows this through his insistence on overpowering and shaming individuals who will not bend to his opinion or his will.
And empathy? Even Trump’s former mentor, the notorious Roy Cohn, lawyer for gangsters and Joseph McCarthy, said that when it came to his feelings for his fellow human beings, Trump “pisses ice water” (Lange 2016).
Trump managed a variation on Descartes’s “I think, therefore I am”: “I think it, therefore it is.”
Democracy requires respect and protection for multiple points of view, concepts that are incompatible with sociopathy. The need to be seen as superior, when coupled with lack of empathy or remorse for harming other people, are in fact the signature characteristics of tyrants, who seek the control and destruction of all who oppose them, as well as loyalty to themselves instead of to the country they lead.”
Nature, Or Nurture?
Maryanne Trump Barry, Judge, U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey,
Judge, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, sister:
”It’s the phoniness of it all. It’s the phoniness and this cruelty. Donald is cruel.”
Mary Trump, PhD from the Derner Institute of Advanced Psychological Studies, taught graduate courses in trauma, psychopathology, and developmental psychology, niece:
“Ms Trump blames the Trump family patriarch, Fred Trump Sr for much of the family's alleged dysfunction. She says Trump Sr, a New York City real estate mogul, "destroyed" Donald Trump by interfering in his "ability to develop and experience the entire spectrum of human emotion".
"By limiting Donald's access to his own feelings and rendering many of them unacceptable, Fred perverted his son's perception of the world and damaged his ability to live in it.”
"Softness was unthinkable," for Trump Sr, she writes, adding that he would grow furious whenever her father - known as Freddy - apologised for any errors.
Fred Sr, she said "would mock him. Fred wanted his oldest son to be a 'killer.'"
Donald Trump, who is seven years younger than his late brother, "had plenty of time to learn from watching Fred humiliate" his eldest son, Ms Trump writes.
"The lesson he learned, at its simplest, was that it was wrong to be like Freddy”
They Would Know
This story Is not finished.
Donald Trump’s sadism continues.
His demented presidency, his demented after math; where he refuses to accept that Joe Biden won.....
culminating in the violent, self-righteous, criminal attack on our capitol,
with the intent to kill people!.....
is, in my view, the direct result of his sadistic nature.
For those Americans still into him, I have only one thing to say......
Fool you once, shame on him. Fool you twice, shame on YOU!

“Trump ordered McGahn to fire Mueller, he refused & Trump ordered him to write a memo saying it hadn't happened. It's one of the clearest cases of obstruction of justice in the Mueller Report.”
There are 10 of them, no? Or is it 11?
I don’t know why it’s so hard to understand....”Russia, if you’re listening”.....
Was enough for me! Or is it usual for a prez candidate to ask an American adversary for help?
Grab em by the p*ssy, full stop.
Making fun of a disabled man...full stop!
It’s not complicated. And if you ever read a newspaper since the 1970’s, you know Trump is a bum.
Did you really believe the tv version, created by an foreign born suspected gvt agent?
Mark Burnett.....has the Apprentice tapes of N word loving Trump. So does MGM.
They’re protecting Trump, just like Billy Barr did as AG.
And a lot if it has to do with moving the embassy to Jerusalem.
Ask Putin where his oligarchs go to escape the law.
Ours go to the UAE..... and continue to subvert America from there. Erik Prince.
Mr blackwater.....take a look at these pants....bear claw logo on them.
Also check the Punisher on his chest.
That was seen at the Boston Bombing.
Domestic terrorism in plain sight.

“Trump has officially endorsed Stefanik's bid to replace Cheney.
Liz Cheney is a warmongering fool who has no business in Republican Party Leadership," Trump wrote on Wednesday on his new blog, since he has been booted from major social media websites such as Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. "We want leaders who believe in the Make America Great Again movement, and prioritize the values of America First. Elise Stefanik is a far superior choice, and she has my COMPLETE and TOTAL endorsement for GOP Conference Chair."
“uniquely Anglo-Saxon political traditions” and infrastructure that “befits the progeny of European architecture.” It also warned of the threat “foreign citizens” supposedly pose to American unity.”

“What’s happening in AZ is not a recount or an audit. It’s election fraud. If allowed to continue, they will fabricate results & do it in more states. It’s the same insurrection in motion again. It’s a reminder that Trump should be locked up & silenced for his role, awaiting trial.”
100% agree. He is on a video saying they’re going to do the same in Michigan, Pennsylvania, some other states.....
He’s a menace to society. He needs to be held accountable for his insurrections and treason.
Aiding and abetting Vladimir Putin, Prince Bone Saw, Recep Erdogan, and Bibi Netanyahu.
Not to mention his Covid evasion, his alleged rapes and his tax evasion.
And there are still kids whose family’s can’t be located, after Trump/Sessions/Miller separated them.
Throw the book at him.....for once it would be deserving.

“REPORT: Probe Confirms Trump Blocked Aid to Puerto Rico When it Needed it Most.”
What could have been the reason for this? His people put out “corruption” in the leadership as to why he let millions of Americans suffer....
But check this out....

Governor Kristi Noem:
“South Dakota won't be taking any illegal immigrants that the Biden Administration wants to relocate. My message to illegal immigrants... call me when you're an American.”
Good thing no one told her ancestors that.
What is WRONG with you people? Racists!
Speaking of Dakota....
I recently learned Dakota, Carolina, and Virginia were split up to give the Senate 6 more Republican senators.
Let’s go DC and Puerto Rico! Even things up a little.
More Supreme Court Justices. We need fair representation.
Of the people, all the people. Minority rule kills.

Ok, I googled, and Fox is the ONLY outlet that claims Wright assaulted a woman. Furthermore, he never got his notice for zoom court, due to Covid.
Hence, the warrant.
This article has documents. Right wingers smear a murdered man to justify his murder!
Why do you allow it hubpages? Cant you ban people who post damaging lies?

Boy, it’s so weird! Every time we have a democratic president, the rightwing cries doom and gloom. Remember Trump’s inauguration speech? That Miller wrote? I kept saying, “what country is he talking about?” Cause it wasn’t the one i live in. And it’s the same now.
They can’t see the vision of where we are going, and so, will be left behind.
That’s fine by me. Anyone who thinks Covid is a hoax and America is going down the tubes is living in a parallel universe.
We don’t inhabit the same matrix.
We’re getting out of the 40 yr trickle up, give it all to billionaires reality.
And you’re lucky it’s Biden. The Sanders crowd you Trumpers were aligned with wants to spend 4 times the amount Biden proposed.
Remember, how you all said “I could have voted for bernie”?
Lol. Phonies. It was just Hillary hate. Which is now Biden hate. Formerly Obama hate.
Hate hate hate
How’s it feel having your concerns boiled down to that?
You should know....you say it all the time.
Anyway, have fun in your gloom and doom dystopia.
I’m in America. We’re back!
