David Frum Understands The Problem With The Liar Trump

Recommended Posts

Trump’s lying about the popular vote has dangerous real-world consequences


1) Trump, a textbook case of Narcissistic Personality Disorder, will believe the lies he tells, after he tells them http://samvak.tripod.com/journal75.html


2) Meaning that Trump will live among ego-salving fantasies - a dangerous location for a president of the United States


3) Worse, Trump will surround himself by people who repeat his lies back to him: either a) abject creatives or B) sinister manipulators


4) Worse still: because the conservative media amplify Trump’s lies, the whole conservative world will lose touch with reality


5) Encouraging true believers - and compelling even pragmatists - to act en masse as if the lies were truth.


6) Among other negative consequences, this will encourage reckless political risk-taking by Republicans in Congress


7) It remains true that Republican candidates for president have won the national popular vote only once since 1988: 1 in 7 elections!


8) The party’s agenda is not popular in real-life. That would seem to suggest … caution.


9) Instead, it seems congressional Republicans are about to plunge ahead as if the country were clamoring for their program.

10) Some congressional Republicans surely know this not to be true. They dare not act on that knowledge


11) In 1965, 1981, 2009, new presidents changed national direction with clear democratic consent.


12) 2017 bids to be as activist as those prior years - but without the clear consent. How will that end? Not well, I fear.


BTW if you haven’t yet familiarized yourself with the symptoms of Narcissistic Personality Disorder, you should http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/narcissistic-personality-disorder/basics/definition/con-20025568

Way too long for kakistocracy members to sit still and read.

 

You used too many big words whose meanings they don't understand.

 

Some of your statements questioned Gropenfuhrer. Obviously you do not understand his his faithful worship.

January 20th, 2017. The date that the plundering begins. The only question is what form it may take:

 

Kakistocracy? Plutocracy? Oligarchy?

 

It doesn't actually matter. The organized despoilation of our national treasure, our environment and our working people will begin.

Rich guys rig the system even more to their favor. The middle class gets an economic ass kicking. To the lunatic conservatives that's comforting because they grew up getting their ass kicked -- by daddy.
