Trump as narcissist

It has long been my firm impression that Leftists, lacking as they plainly do emotional intelligence, empathy, understanding and all the other things that permit psychologically healthy people to create authentic communication with one another, simply take the valid and accurate charges leveled against their candidates, and reverse them.

I do think Obama is a narcissist and Hillary is a psychopath, but Trump gets accused of both.  Let's take them one at a time.

A narcissist is someone who is really only able to relate emotionally to themselves.  That's not even quite it.  They are the only person in their world.  They seek out attention and fame because seeing themselves in the eyes of others triggers mirror neurons in them that creates the only facsimile of emotional connection which is available to them.  It seems to me that narcissism and the emotional disconnection caused by Developmental Trauma are for practical purposes identical.

We're not sure what happened in Obama's first year of life.  It is certain the biological father--who was likely Frank Marshall Davis, a man 30 years or more Stanley's senior, a Communist, an African-American, a pornographer, and at least later, a drug dealer--played no role in his early life.  Stanley--and ponder the fucked-up-ness implied by naming your daughter a boy's name simply because you wanted a boy--moved to Seattle, where as a single mother she immediately started attending school.

Young Barry had no family there.  His grandmother was thousands of miles away.  Stanley was young, dumb, alone and busy.  And she was capable of sleeping with Frank Marshall Davis.  Imagine the ambivalence she must have felt about young Barry, once she realized she had been taken advantage of.  Feelings of disgust and remorse must have coursed through her.  

It is not hard to imagine young Barry being neglected, of him failing to attach, and of him growing up a narcissist.

And how EASY to be Barack Obama in 2008!!!  The world loved him.  He could do no wrong.  The press gushed over him at every turn.  He won the Nobel Prize in the expectation of accomplishments to come.  A narcissist's dream?  Of course. And practically, I have never seen the slightest hint of humanity from him.  He managed a well practiced tear after Newtown, but it had every bit as much spontaneity and emotional truth as Hillary's horrific and frightening smile.

Compare this to Donald Trump.  By ALL accounts, he gets to know as many people as he can on every project he does.  He chats with people.  He cares about them.  He takes care of them.

And he loves having fun.  People may say it is tacky to make guest appearances on World Wrestling Foundation (or whatever it was), but he's just having a good time.  He is a people person.  He loves talking with folks.  And yes, OF COURSE he loves the limelight, but by ALL accounts he does a lot of good things, generous things, that he never takes credit for.  He does them because he can.

And does anyone really think President Mom Jeans and bicycling helmet would have stayed in the race if he has been subjected to the same torrent of awful and continuous assaults on him that have been thrown at Trump?  Trump has received a huge amount of coverage, but by actual count 91% of it has been bad.  Obama is plainly thin skinned.  He is very sensitive.  He has virtually no character.  And we should be grateful for that, or he would have actually accomplished his "fundamental transformation of America".

Billary will.  I have no doubt of that.

But can anyone say what Trump is going through is FUN?  Fuck no.  It's fucking brutal.  It was seemingly getting to him after the Access Hollywood betrayal.  A part of "locker room talk", as all men know, is that you boast about things you haven't actually done.  That tape should never have been released.

And on that note, I read yesterday that Paul Ryan's wife's brother's wife--someone he has sat across from on many occasions at Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners--is in consideration by Hillary for the Supreme Court.  Consider that many think Romney or Ryan leaked that video, and people with blood pressure issues will find themselves reaching for their medicine, and those with anger issues shouting out loud.

Trump is no narcissist.  This entire picture has been fabricated.  Do you get, yet, that our media LIES?  They don't just spin: they fabricate from whole cloth.

And if we want to talk about psychopathy, well, Trump is a normal, ordinary person by all accounts.  He knew Jeffrey Epstein, but unlike Bill, he never rode the Lolita Express to pedophile island.  Nor did her participate in the persecution of his sexual victims.

Bill fucked them, then Hillary the Shrew persecuted them like they were guilty of witchcraft and deserved to be burnt at the stake.  Let me quote a Chicago Democrat from the Whitewater era: 
if you want to talk about real evil, it’s her.’ It was a terrible time. She was the one that did everything to destroy the women.”
In her very first case, defending the man who raped Kathy Shelton, she went low and stayed there.  She Gaslighted a 12 year old girl, who no doubt came from a poor family and had few emotional or financial resources. She tortured her in defense of a rapist JUST LIKE BILL, so that she could say she won.

Is what she did with Juanita Broaddrick any different than what she did to Shelton?

That is psychopathy.

Here is a list of the traits of psychopathy/sociopathy/antisocial personality disorder:

  • Superficial charm and good intelligence
  • Absence of delusions and other signs of irrational thinking
  • Absence of nervousness or neurotic manifestations
  • Unreliability
  • Untruthfulness and insincerity
  • Lack of remorse and shame
  • Inadequately motivated antisocial behavior
  • Poor judgment and failure to learn by experience
  • Pathologic egocentricity and incapacity for love
  • General poverty in major affective reactions
  • Specific loss of insight
  • Unresponsiveness in general interpersonal relations
  • Fantastic and uninviting behavior with alcohol and sometimes without
  • Suicide threats rarely carried out
  • Sex life impersonal, trivial, and poorly integrated
  • Failure to follow any life plan
I count 1, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 certainly.  The rest I would need to know more.  Take number one: she is fake as fuck, but she smiles and I don't doubt people lacking insight can see her as fun, funny, and friendly.  And she is certainly intelligent.  No one has ever denied that.

Unreliability: Benghazi.  I could cite many more but that will stand for now.

Lack of remorse: what difference does it make?

Inadequately motivated antisocial behavior: her decision to wage war on Libya AFTER we had a signed peace deal that should have given us everything we wanted, if in fact democracy was the goal.

Poor judgement: she is continuing to do all the things that created the problems in the Middle East.  This list could also be made much longer with little work.

Incapacity for love: here is the thing: she does not seem to love anyone.  She certainly does not love Bill.  This is the whole problem with her putting up with his repeated infidelities.  On some level, she does not have the emotional reactions a normal woman would have in the face of more or less continual (1,000 or more women, or so he has claimed on some accounts) cheating on the part of her husband.  Maybe she loves Huma, but that seems unlikely too.  She seems to be alone.

General poverty in major affective reactions:  What is happening there is that they developed a general strategy of smiling contemptuously  to say through body language "there he goes again".  But that was not an emotionally appropriate response to real horrors he was not making up.  And she was unable to feel her way through that.  Those circuits are not wired in her.

We can speculate on the rest.  It does seem likely, based on the National Enquirer stories, that she, like Bill, likes emotionally detached sex and cocaine.  She is clearly cunning, so lacking irrational--romantic might be the word here--delusions seems likely.  She clearly DOES have a life plan, but it is not necessary for all the symptoms to be present.  I would suspect if 4 or more are there the diagnosis becomes relatively easy.

Trump is a charming person who has always connected with people.  He is liked for who he is.  Many, many women came forward to defend him from all those charges.

Hillary and Bill--Bill is the guy who could give a woman that goofy smile, rape her, then put the smile back on and say "put some ice on that", like he now cared about her--are clearly sociopaths.

Wake the fuck up America.
