Trump: The Malignant Narcissist?

     Malignant narcissists, socio/psychopaths, and antisocial personalities, as a rule, act to exploit, demean, or intimidate anyone that gets near them or crosses them. They lie pathologically, and will go to great lengths to avoid personal responsibility. In this article I will try to demonstrate a few ways in which I believe #Tubby45 exhibits such antisocial behavior. I'm not an expert, but I'm well read and trust the knowledge of many that are. I've also had experience with a  few narcissists in my years on this rock; a few more than I would have liked, I'll tell ya.

     Gaslighting is a manipulation tactic, in which the victim of any given situation is left wondering if it was their own fault, and questioning their own sanity. Some examples are: The Jedi mind trick, "It never happened!", "What's wrong with you?!" and, "That's in your head!!". It's one of the most insidious forms of manipulation. #Illegitimate45( I will never use this mans name. I will never feed his narcissism) uses this tactic, almost as a rule, against anyone who questions his words or actions. Even if it happens in front of a room full of people and they ALL concur, he, as with any manipulator, will look right into the camera and say, "Never happened!, Ridiculous!"

     Often one is affected by gaslighting in such a way, that they are left with a personal cognitive dissonance. It leaves them confused and powerless to respond, in any meaningful way, to the attacks. This is seen most often in abusive, controlling relationships, but really, anytime someone is manipulating another person.

     If you look closely at those #TheOrangeDouche seems to perpetually surround himself with, you'll notice,they are lost and confused. As if they are unsure what to do next, or even how they should stand. To me, it seems that any one of them would flinch and cower if #Douche45 moved too quickly in their vicinity; sad, weak, pathetic little sycophants that they are. In my opinion, it's clear, he is a master manipulator, and gaslighting is but one tactic he uses.

Nonsensical Rhetoric:
     Malignant narcissists will use nonsensical rhetoric and circular arguments that go on, seemingly forever, without ever actually progressing to a conclusion, and waste exorbitant amounts of your energy and time in the process. They'll use word salad; a mixture of unrelated words that make no sense, and ad hominum attacks; "Oh you're just retarded!" , and projection; They will again resort to gaslighting, when failing in other ways. They do all of this to confuse and misdirect you, again, weakening your resolve to hold them accountable.

     But since malignant narcissists are forever in fear of being discovered as frauds; they will constantly tell you about how great everything they do is, again, using words picked from the vocabulary of an eight year old child. "Bigly!" Anyone who is honest and cognitively resonant, will shout it from the rooftops when asked, that #NotMy45 is full of shit. Meaning, that every sentence he uses sounds as if he has the mentality of an eight year old. Which seems to resonate well with his base supporters. Not making any assumptions here. Just sayin. He is able to surround himself with willing and often witless sycophants and base supporters. None of which are evidently smarter than an eight year old.

 Blanket Statements and generalizations:
     Most MN's tend to be, not so much stupid, as intellectually lazy. Rather than taking the time to adequately consider what is being said to them, they tend to generalize . Making blanket statements that make it seem, and rightly so, that they didn't bother taking in the details of what was being said to them; as if they were not really listening, but instead, daydreaming.

     Often these sorts of microagressions manifest in toxic relationships. For instance, your abusive partner might gaslight you, by saying you are a whiner or too sensitive. They might aggravate the situation even more, via generalization, by saying, "You're never satisfied!", or even by projecting and generalizing, "You're always doing this to me!" Generalizations like this have a tendency to infuriate the recipient. Because, as with gaslighting, they confuse and derail your train of thought, again, making it difficult to impossible hold the MN accountable for anything. While at the same time, it piles more shit onto the refuse of the previous arguments: anger, confusion, self doubting, even of your own sanity, resentment. Believe it or not, this has a more toxic effect that daily beatings. The effect of beatings often pale in comparison the that of this flavor of mental abuse.    

     Not to sound redundant, but this, again, is another part of #TheOrangeImposter's repertoire. I'm sure if you can make sense of this article, you'll admit, that you've heard #TinyHands use generalizations and blanket statements too frequently to number. Like for instance, "Biggest tax cut ever!", or his 2012 tweet "Obama will go down as the worst president in history..." Forgive me if I don't give you many examples. I have yet to sit and listen to him talk with a pad and paper. I'm considering it. It's just that I can never get through more than 30 seconds of him speaking before I am compelled to, if not throw my fucking TV out the window, to quickly change the channels. Because there is a lie in almost every sentence.

     A clear sign of a toxic personality is projection. It is done to avoid ones own reflection in the mirror, so to speak, by instead projecting faults onto another and avoiding their own accountability. Everyone engages in projection to some extent, according to Narcissistic Personality clinical expert Dr. Martinez-Lewi. Of course the projections of malignant narcissists are often psychologically abusive. Rather than taking personal responsibility for their own shortcomings, a narcissist would rather project it onto another in a more hurtful manner. One classic example from #PumkinHead, was his latest response to collusion with Russia accusations.

     Rather than even admit that Russia had interfered and that his presidency could be considered illegitimate, he, instead, projected onto his predecessor, in a more hurtful and slanderous way, and of course we all know, it wasn't the first time. There have probably been hundreds of similar examples recorded. ""The reason that President Obama did NOTHING about Russia after being notified by the CIA of meddling is that he expected Clinton would win and did not want to 'rock the boat,'" #TheOrangeAnus said. "He didn't 'choke,' he colluded or obstructed, and it did the Dems and Crooked Hillary no good." That's projection. Fin.

Subterfuge/pathological lying/hyperbole:
     MN's tell elaborate tales, which end up  either making them look great, or making your own opinions on a given topic sound absurd, or insane. In the hands of the malignant narcissist, your opinions, legitimate emotions, and even your authority, are all called into question. They are translated instead, into evidence of your own irrationality. They obfuscate the legitimacy of your argument or accusation, effectively castrating it.

      Any reporter that has called out #Pumkin45, has assuredly experienced this form of juvenile delinquent, and slanderous subterfuge. As for hyperbole? His is the biggliest, the best, noone has ever been better! Again, I do not readily have an example. I haven't been sitting around writing down his every word, Nor, I bet, have you. I personally can't afford the excess fucking Zantac. Anyhow, one lie, logical fallacy, or obfuscation tends to lead right directly to another. If you have listened to 30 seconds, you've listened to eight hours.

Nitpicking and moving the goal post:
     This is the difference between constructive and destructive criticism. Constructive criticism is intended to lift up the receiver. Destructive criticism is in no way altruistic. In fact, it is the opposite. It's nitpicking. Pointing out flaws and nitpicking, not to raise you up, but to belittle and shame you. "Oh. you have a new job? How much do you make? ...That all? How come you're not a millionaire yet?! Whats wrong with you?" You just cannot reach the goal, for as soon as you did they would just move the goal post.

     By forever re-positioning the goal post, abusive personalities are able to instill in others a pervasive sense of worthlessness, and probably a nagging need to prove their worth. Much like the ball gagging sycophants he is surrounded by. They are able to keep people focused on their weaknesses, so as to cause them to lose sight of their strengths. Causing others to fail pleases sociopaths. I think this lets them maintain a feeling of superiority that they crave so sickly. 
     #PresidentFart continues to move the goal post. Evidenced in his response to any error he is ever called upon. He claims it didn't happen, if that claim becomes untenable, he just moves the fucking goal posts. Narcissistic contrary to what they project, have a pervading sense of worthlessness all on their own. So they surround themselves with people and things that make them appear larger than life. Seen in @TheOrangeDouche's gaudy living quarters, fitted with gold everywhere, his use of over-played words and phrases that only superficially make his seem as if he knows some big words. He doesn't. Or at least, he doesn't really understand what they mean.

Veiled and overt threats:
     Lastly, when a malignant narcissist finds their sense of entitlement, or megalomaniacal sense of self worth threatened, they first move the goal post, making unreasonable demands of people that cross them. When they, naturally, can't meet these expectations, they proceed to punish their victim, for the shortfalls. Rather than approach disagreements naturally, MN's prefer, instead, to divert you from the idea that you have a right to your own opinion. They then threaten you or instill fear in you, about the repercussions of disagreeing or having an opinion that differs form theirs.

     Here I don't even need to leave you an example. Every woman that has come out against the asshole has been threatened. Every political opponent has been threatened. He threatens the media. He threatens anyone that puts at risk his fragile ego. I'll leave you on this note. This man, though never diagnosed, as it's difficult to diagnose cluster B personalities, in a therapeutic type situation. They are not likely to ever admit to being flawed for one. Very difficult to diagnose, and subsequently treat someone that prefers to maintain an illusion of sanity. I said that to say this, the asshole may not have been diagnosed, but every psychiatrist on the planet, along with any moderately educated person can tell, the man is a malignant narcissist and everything else that may entail. He doesn't hide it. He can't. He is so deluded by his own grandiose projection of himself, he can't see his own image in the mirror. In fact, I imagine he rejects self reflection automatically and as a rule.

Blue Bloods: A Modern Family Blood Bath

     I enjoy the show, "Blue Bloods". Maybe it's that it is a study, for me, on how television can be used to manipulate public opinion, but, as usual, I feel overwhelmingly compelled to point out a few things. First of all, police officers rarely discharge their firearms. I'm not talking about the police shootings that the narrow visioned media tends to focus all of their attention on. I'm saying that most officers retire, having never discharged their firearm.

     That said, cops in the Reagan family seem to discharge their firearms and KILL those whom they fire upon, at least every other episode. Now the viewers surely know, that nearly every episode covers about a week, since in nearly every episode, Sunday dinner is had. Ergo, someone is killed, by a member of the Reagan family, once every couple of weeks. Let me say here, how disgusting it is to me that the show revolves around this particular trigger happy family's Catholic flavored Sunday goddamned dinners. Only two Reagan's are on the beat. So that's like 26 killings a year, from just TWO guys!! Can we say overkill? Pun intended.

     We're talking about a family of fucking psychopaths! We're watching them, and thinking what heroes they are!! But now, maybe I'm reading too much into it. It wouldn't be the first time. Won't be the last. I mean, the writers may just think that little about what they are putting out there for people to veg on, as long as they can veg well.

     I'm betting that there is an agenda here. Perhaps their intent is for the television watching public to just be entertained. Maybe they really do want the voting, TV watching, public, to admire and respect police officers that frequently shoot and kill people whom the general public considers to be criminals. Then again, maybe they are just giving the bloodthirsty public what it is that they demand.
