Does Trump Even Know This Isn't Going Well For Him?

I truly wonder if he knows what is really going on from day to day.

People are dying because of him and his actions / inactions.

Is he simply stuck in the same old attack whoever attacks him mode, kinda like in rhythm. Is he not even aware of the bigger picture. Ya know. Death of thousands of people he is in charge of protecting, and who's lives it is his job to save.

One has to wonder. How truly sick is he?

What does he enjoy more than attacking people?

Does anyone really know.....

1. Ya know?

The whole thing is just so bizarre. It just seems like we're in some kinda strange place where we all see the exact same shitshow, and I mean SHITSHOW, and half the people have their heads up their asses. For the love of God how can anyone excuse this moron? He's such a vicious clown. I just feel like this whole thing is so Twilight Zoneish! I don't think he's capable of real emotion like most of us feel. I think he is a sadistic clown, and we're in hell.

16. I keep expecting to hear

Rod Serling's voice narration saying, "America, the year is 2020......." I've always been a huge Twilight Zone fan and I have to admit I never thought I'd feel like I was actually in an episode.

dt fits the classic definition of a Sociopath:

Antisocial personality disorder is characterized by a lack of regard for the moral or legal standards in the local culture. There is a marked inability to get along with others or abide by societal rules. Individuals with this disorder are sometimes called psychopaths or sociopaths.

Glibness and Superficial Charm

Manipulative and Conning
They never recognize the rights of others and see their self-serving behaviors as permissible. They appear to be charming, yet are covertly hostile and domineering, seeing their victim as merely an instrument to be used. They may dominate and humiliate their victims.

Grandiose Sense of Self
Feels entitled to certain things as "their right."

Pathological Lying
Has no problem lying coolly and easily and it is almost impossible for them to be truthful on a consistent basis. Can create, and get caught up in, a complex belief about their own powers and abilities. Extremely convincing and even able to pass lie detector tests.

Lack of Remorse, Shame or Guilt
A deep seated rage, which is split off and repressed, is at their core. Does not see others around them as people, but only as targets and opportunities. Instead of friends, they have victims and accomplices who end up as victims. The end always justifies the means and they let nothing stand in their way.

Shallow Emotions
When they show what seems to be warmth, joy, love and compassion it is more feigned than experienced and serves an ulterior motive. Outraged by insignificant matters, yet remaining unmoved and cold by what would upset a normal person. Since they are not genuine, neither are their promises.

Incapacity for Love

Need for Stimulation
Living on the edge. Verbal outbursts and physical punishments are normal. Promiscuity and gambling are common.

Callousness/Lack of Empathy
Unable to empathize with the pain of their victims, having only contempt for others' feelings of distress and readily taking advantage of them.

Poor Behavioral Controls/Impulsive Nature
Rage and abuse, alternating with small expressions of love and approval produce an addictive cycle for abuser and abused, as well as creating hopelessness in the victim. Believe they are all-powerful, all-knowing, entitled to every wish, no sense of personal boundaries, no concern for their impact on others.

Promiscuous Sexual Behavior/Infidelity
Promiscuity, child sexual abuse, rape and sexual acting out of all sorts.

Lack of Realistic Life Plan/Parasitic Lifestyle
Tends to move around a lot or makes all encompassing promises for the future, poor work ethic but exploits others effectively.

Criminal or Entrepreneurial Versatility
Changes their image as needed to avoid prosecution. Changes life story readily.
Other Related Qualities:

Contemptuous of those who seek to understand them
Does not perceive that anything is wrong with them
Authoritarian
Secretive
Paranoid

And then add Malignant Narcissistic personality disorder to the mix along with a cult following created and brainwashed by Faux News and that's where we are....

18. O-M-G!!!!

With each paragraph there is another very clear picture of that idiot that we have living in OUR White House. You can even visualize specific events where he displayed that particular characteristic.
You could put together a training video or documentary with each characteristic and then a video example of IQ45 doing that very thing.
I don't know what you would ever do with that however. Maybe use it for training at a medical school - or something to use in a citizenship class. No matter which - it is not something I'd like to have to sit through - living it once is more than enough.

2. He is only aware that he doesn't care

He is bereft of the most basic human emotion of love for anyone. He doesnít even love himself. His overriding impulse is to acquire what he wants at any cost. Power. He thinks people will admire him and adore him if he has enough power. Have you noticed how it doesnít even register with him that heís acting like a monster. In his mind heís the hero and anyone who doesnít treat him well are the bad people who he needs to punish, insult and diminish. He believes deeply that the world is being unfair to him. That he deserves being worshipped because he truly believes heís superior to everyone. That he has the god given right to everything he desires.

3. "Trump is a counter-puncher" that's what his followers always say

That is being exceedingly nice. He is bellicose and belligerent and it is the only thing he knows. He canít act, only react. He is the very worst person in the face of the earth to be president during this crisis. I wish he could find a way to focus his vitriol on the corona virus rather than people who are actually doing their jobs.

And no, he doesnít seem to realize how poorly he is doing.

8. Exactly. Succinct. That's his shortcoming in a nutshell: "He can't act, only react."

14. In his mind he's handled this perfectly.

He handles everything perfectly, because he actually believes he's perfect in every way. He's not capable of doing anything wrong, because he's never been allowed to fail (someone always bailed him out, legally/financially or both) and he truly believes he's done all of this by himself. He's said before that he's "a self made man". He suffers under such delusions of grandeur that's he's incapable of any emotion whatsoever, save anger, anger for those who don't share his Trumpian world view (and Trump's world extends nowhere past the inside of his skull). His ego always breaks his fall, pampers him, and lifts him above all others. He's a psychological wonder, and his brain should be left to science so they can study what compromises pure self-absorption.

22. His shit wouldn't stink, if indeed he excreted any.

His body is such a fine-tuned perfect machine, that he produces no waste.

< if needed (But he probably has cult members who believe this is true)

4. He's not using the same measuring stick as everyone else.

He is yammering about TV ratings while other people are talking about death tolls.

He is totally disinterested in the effect that stay-at-home orders have on deadly disease transmission, he is hyperaware of what effect those orders have on his golf clubs' and hotels' revenues.

He is incapable of empathy, but gets a turgid toadstool when reporters pay attention to him.

If, by some chance, Trump does know this isn't going well for him, his awareness of things going badly for him -- whatever that means exactly in his head -- is definitely not the same as what you or I mean when we say things aren't going well for him.

7. Yet I keep hearing his approval rating is going up.

WTF? This is like shooting thousands of people on 5th Avenue. The only reason we're in shit this deep in the first place id because Trump and his cabal were too incompetent and uninterested to get out in front of it even with 2-3 months of warning.

19. He lives on chaos

If he had worked on this 3 months ago with simply ordering supplies for each state. His life would be boring because although the virus would be here, it wouldnít be out of control. Heíd be getting little attention. He loves his name front and center and itís ok if itís negative. Heís just plain weird is the bottom line I think.

21. But he sucks at managing it.

Which I guess is good for him, since he likes the chaos, but it necessitates a WHOLE lot of lying about awesome he is.

Republicans can't control the chaos they create, so they control the message instead.

9. With his personality disorder, he is very suceptable to falling into delusion.

One of the reasons he was never fit to be president. He thinks he is being a hero when he is actually being incompetent.

I believe there were reports of tumbleweeds and cobwebs in there during his last physical.

13. From what I've read about him from insiders over the years.....

he's always surrounded himself with yes-men and yes-women and reacts with fury over any negativity reflected toward him. He also has a habit of firing anyone that is not singing off his page, and his staff is expected to shower him with accolades every day. People like Bannon, Pence and Miller have always known that and it's how they get their way with him.

I'm sure the right-wing think tanks and Faux News people do that as well so he will implement their policies and dogma. He really is a puppet to anyone who fakes adoration for him.

Extremely sad period for America, as our Constitution has been turned against everyday citizens.....

Bottom line is:

17. He knows

That's why he's so desperately trying to project the opposite of the truth , and accusing others falsely all the time now for distraction away from his failures from refusing to do anything regarding this virus . He's still refusing helping other Americans. He sent 17.8 tons of medical supplies to China while doctors and nurses go without or have to reuse supplies over and over again now here in our country. America 1st was a lie from trump , its America last under trump, again the opposite of his claims.
