The race for the presidency in the US has been particularly nasty in 2016. For most people it is quite clear that Donald Trump is a narcissist. This is a person that is over the top interested in portraying himself in the best way possible, in any situation. It is a man who loves himself, a person radiating confidence in his own abilities, a winner. It is easy to think highly of such as person, the right person for the most potent job in the world.
A lot of people are hurting, and in a bad spot. Voting for Trump seems a good alternative. It appears to be no down-side to such a great candidate. It cannot be any worse than it is today, trumpudilans believe.
Yes, it can be worse. Donald J Trump has over the course of the campaign showed numerous instances of being a psychopath. If he isn’t a psychopath, he is using psychopathic tactics. And this is alarming. This is category five danger. There is no limit to the damage a psychopath can facilitate.
Experts say that one of every 100 person is psychopathic
A psychopath is not necessarily a person walking around with a knife and butchering people. A psychopath can appear to be normal all day long, except in the moments of truth. These moments of evil may be rare, but are devastating, and difficult to deal with. Experts say that one of every 100 person is psychopathic.
Psychopaths have normal intelligence. They can achieve great things, and they do not appear to be lunatics. Their flaw is lack of empathy. In fact, this deficiency makes them appear calm. When most would crumble being exposed for lying, the psychopath is admirably composed because it doesn’t bother him, or her.
Psychopaths have feelings but are not equipped with sympathy for others. However, whenever they decide to, they can act compassionate. Empathy for a psychopath is what the color red is for a colorblind person.
During the town hall debate Trump exposed his lack of empathy when he resembled a stalker behind the talking Clinton. If Trump had empathy, he would have taken a few steps back when Clinton came over to his corner.
In this blog post you will be reminded of some psychopathic traits, red flags and tactics of Donald Trump. In addition, the different roles Trump is performing. A few words on the people who sits in his corner, the flying monkeys. There is much more that could be written on this topic. The bulk of examples is huge.
You may find that some of this points also can be used on the other candidate and even yourself. However, the intensity and volume on Trump is alarming. And, no he is not going to be presidential, ever.
Five of Many Psychopathic Traits Trump Has Exposed During The Campaign
1. The psychopathic logic
To decode the irrational logic of a psychopath you need to employ this formula on lies for instance:
- Trump is telling a lie
- You believe in it
- Trump is smart
- You are an idiot for believing it
Employ this decoder and you will understand the rationality of Trump. He is a con artist and in his own mind a winner. Whoever gets screwed are losers, because they took his bait.
He promises to “Make America Great Again”. Amongst others he will make the American military strong again. But the truth is, there is no other military power on Earth that can deploy fighting and winning forces anywhere on the planet within hours as the USA can.
He promises that he alone can fix it. He is arguably great at constructing large buildings. A skill it takes years to manufacture, fine-tune, and update. He needs other know-how to govern. In his own book “Art of the Deal” he has eleven points for being a great dealer. Number four is “Know your market”. It is not possible to be a master at everything, and when the buck stops at him, he will not be able to land greater negotiations with the Chinese than any other.
2. Transfer of undesireable traits
A lack of empathy will very often propel individuals into misbehavior. In Donald Trump’s case there are numerous instances of crooked behavior, an undesireable trait. A trait he is constantly trying to transfer to Clinton, as if he is wiping a swarm of bees from his body.
Donald Trump has repeatedly said things to persuade people. For instance, at his rallies make someone violent. When protesters have demonstrated, Trump has several times uttered that he would like to punch them. On occasions, very likely inspired by Trump, followers have punched protesters at his rallies.
4. The need for praise is infinite
Donald Trump is very easily manipulated if you know how to do it. A former KGB agent, a specialist in profiting on a person’s character, the Russian president Vladimir Putin has praised Donald Trump. Never mind that Russia is an opponent, but Trump has almost had a revealing infatuation for the Russian Premier, just because of Putin’s chess like praise.
5. Never admit anything
Trump has insulted or disrespected most people he has had disagreements with the last year and a half. Instead of offering sincere regrets, he has stretched himself to some general apologetic comments.
Five Psychopathic Red Flags
1. Your political soul mate
If you find yourself completely taken over by a politican – beware! In a normal situation, a politician needs time to win you over.
2. Credibility attributes
Don’t get carried away by the Trump plane, big buildings, and beauty pageants. These are ancient persuasive tools.
3. The know-it-all person
Well, this is Trump in his very own illusive nutshell
4. Tolerance amplifier
Donald Trump has a shady past. In a normal situation this would deem him unqualified to become President. For this reason also, he has been bullying and insulting throughout the campaign. The voters are thus so used to the bullying, that he or she becomes immune to another “scandal”.
Donald Trump has made attempts on projecting the birther thing on Clinton. For years, Trump claimed that President Obama was not born in the USA. During the campaign, he suggested that Clinton had started the whole thing.
Sixteen Psychopathic Tactics
1. Targeting “bad people”
When a person is not giving Trump what he wants, this person becomes the object of negative actions. The FBI has been criticized when they have freed Clinton on the email case.
In order to appear strong, Trump presents himself as tough on crime and bad behavior.
3. Divide and Conquer
Trump has polarized the American people to pit them against each other for his own benefit.
4. Friend or Foe
The interchanging stages of being a foe or a friend happens rapid in the world of psychopaths. One day a person can be the greatest, the next day the very same person can be a moron.
Not releasing his Tax Returns is a classic example of keeping exposing information hidden
6. False reference
Trump has repeatedly referred to letters from thousands of people that are concerned about certain things. In 2016 people don’t write letters.
7. Doesn’t use white lies
April 15, 1989 Trump uttered on Larry King Live that the host had bad breath. A natural situation of not mentioning this.
8. Rub salt in the wound
When Trump invited President Clinton’s sex past to the second presidential debate it was also an uncalled attempt to get Ms Clinton of balance.
9. Upside down mentality
Trump has several times attacked people verbally in response to their “attack” on him. Very often the “attack” has merely been an account of bad things associated to Trump. Who really started it?
10. Always somebodies fault
Trump has attributed many government failures on Clinton. It is, for instance, not possible to blame Clinton for the tax code, or any bad legislature. It takes a Congress to pass laws.
11. Blatant hypocrisy
One set of rules for him, another for others. Trump demands transparency of the Clinton emails but will not turn his Tax Returns to the media.
12. Say it, but not say it
Trump often employs a tactic of saying something negative about a person followed by a statement that denounces it. But the bad thing has been said.
13. Change topic
On uncountable shows Trump surrogates have ditched unwanted questions and headed for another topic.
Trump has on occasions withdrawn stupid answers afterwards by saying he misunderstood the question.
15. No filter
Trump shoots from the hip. It stands out as “from the heart” and honest, but it is just cheap talk.
16. Not afraid of lying
It really doesn’t matter being caught in a lie.
The Three Roles of Actor Trump
The psychopath plays three distinct roles in order to get around and accomplish his (personal) goals. The charmer, the bully and the victim.
First and foremost you have the role of the charmer. It is the billionaire flying in his private jet from one of his own great hotels to another. He will tell you the things you want to hear, how to make America great again, keep lives safe, provide you jobs and health care. This role is to get you to like him.
Then you have the bully role. This role is normally done in secrecy. But in Trump’s case he is deliberately doing the bully role in broad daylight in order to deflect bad background stories and appear as the real alternative to Washington inadequacies. Normally, this role is to get what he wants.
The third role is the victim role. When the polling was really bad, this act surfaced. The system is rigged, the media is against him and so on. This role is for getting sympathy and to explain why he as a winner can lose.
The Flying Monkeys of Trump
In order to get anywhere a psychopath needs partners, our flying monkeys. These are the Trump surrogates that will defend and promote Trump regardless of what goes on. It is quite evident that major Republican politicians are not standing by Trump. What is evident is that Trump has very few strong flying monkeys. A proof that USA still has the moral fabric of heroes. The strongest monkeys are Trump’s family members. And yes, lack of empathy is heritable.
Trump (only) for Resident
Clinton is maybe not the most popular presidential candidate, but in 2016 there is only one alternative.
Clinton is endorsed by some of the most revered people in the United States. Including, the “royal” Bush family.
Trump is spinning that he doesn’t need help. It is the psychopathic spin of a person only fit to be a resident of the United States.
There’s a sucker born every day, don’t be one!
