Narcissistic Psychopaths R Us

Trump gave a speech in NC last night:

Oops! Sorry, wrong clip.

Here’s the right one:

It is a combo of the usual lies wrapped in misrepresentations, mixed with sleazy, manipulative and nonsensical panderings, all infused with self-aggrandizement, resentment and rage, and played to the Crooked Hillary tune.

Among its highlights are:

1.The Donald’s invention of the term “a rigged system,” something he is very proud of; accusing Hillary of bribing attorney general; and praising his own “tough” temperament in the most unaware way:

“Saddam Hussein was a bad guy, right? He was a bad guy. Really bad guy. But you know what he did well? He killed terrorists. He did that so good. They didn’t read them the rights, they didn’t talk. They were a terrorists – it was over. Today, Iraq is Harvard for terrorism.”

and

3. an escalation of his rage, most apparent toward the end, where, emboldened by his own greatness and the crowd’s enthusiastic response, he lets his inner Adolf fly, although still ever so timidly.

But Donny is just warming up. You haven’t seen anything yet, folks, believe me.

He says as much himself, though not in these very words. In particular, the crescendo of rage in his voice (watch especially from 50:30 on) is a portent of things to come, to be fully experienced a few years into the rule of His Excellency, President for Life, Field Marshal and Supreme Deal Maker Donald Trump, Lord of All the Beasts of the Earth and Fishes of the Seas and Conqueror of the Planet Earth in the Universe in General and the United States in Particular (this is just a slight paraphrase of the title that Idi Amin gave himself several years into his Presidency for Life).

Take a look at the clip with the fragments of Hitler’s speeches — note the main themes of national victimhood, humiliation, and revenge, which are THE fuel of Trumpism as well.

When FOX resident shrink, Dr. Ablow, asserted in his endorsement of President Trump that

Maybe a narcissistic leader who clearly believes in his own destiny can remind us of America’s manifest destiny.

he was right, in a way — and it is a dangerous way — because leaders like Trump, Hitler, Hussein, and others like them are elected (or “elected”) by the populace just for that reason: to heal their nations’ narcissistic wounds — some imagined, many self-inflicted. This is what Making Our Nation Great Again! is always about and it never ends well.

P.S. This just in: Hitler hates being compared with Trump. Can’t blame the guy, frankly. He comes across as an eloquent and principled idealist vis a vis The Donald. But, every nation gets the Führer it deserves.

      • It is. But that’s what his supporters — whose number is greater, I think, than we are led to believe — want.

        We have seen such leaders and the political dynamic that drives their rise to power in every place in the world throughout history. It is now America’s time.

      • Yes, high time Americans got a taste of the medicine they’ve allowed, or pushed, their leaders to shove at the rest of the world. America holds the record for installing mad, genocidal dictators by overthrowing popularly elected democratic governments (take Chile or Guatemala as obvious examples) in countries all over the world, so now, perhaps, they get one of their own, a madman who will destroy the country. But in any case, if they vote for Killary, the (longer term) end result will be much worse, for make no mistake, Killary is Tony Blair, George Bush, Thatcher and Obama rolled into one, and added to her innate greed and hubris – she’s not only a narcissist, she’s a Zionist and a ponerologist. With such people at the helm, America as a political unit, is toast. Trump is bumbling stupidity but Killary is distilled villainy.

      • We are toast, either way. The question is when and how exactly. Nothing that is built on violence and exploitation can (or should) last.

        I told my husband years ago that we should have moved to Canada. But no.

      • Canada might have been a good location choice – far enough away from any major industrial center and certainly, from the 49th parallel. I’m only about ten miles “inland” from the border, and 60 miles inland from Vancouver, so if there’s serious upheaval, this area is toast also. I’ve been thinking about the “north” again, where I was raised, but it’s a bit late for that. We’ll just have to roll with the punches, or go down with the rest. Whatever…

    • It is an acquired taste, John. 😉

      I find him and what he represents fascinating and educational, and that helps squelch the revulsion.

      It also helps to imagine him as a drunk uncle spinning his tall tales by a campfire, entertaining some and boring others to death.

      And then you realize he may very well be our next president and the charm, such as it were, disappears.

  1. It’s like watching pro wrestling, only with less IQ involved. Trump exudes bile and lots of privileged and entitled like having their own sense of helplessness soothed by political bile. Trump knows that his success lies in rising up to the same level of ignorance as his supporters.
