Was the Convention only last week?
But really, this clip of Trump may be all we need to have shown. Just under six minutes.
With prominent Republicans now vowing to vote for Hillary, it has sparked more than one Facebook post paraphrasing Hamilton. You know the song where he’s deciding between presidential candidates Jefferson and Burr? “I have never agreed with Jefferson once. We have fought on like seventy-five different fronts. But when all is said and all is done, Jefferson has beliefs. Burr” — Trump — “has none.”
The difference of course being that Burr hid whatever beliefs he had out of an abundance of caution and decorum, whereas Trump, the loosest of loose cannons, fires off contradictory pronouncements left and right out of an abundance of thuggish self-regard.
He may even be a little crazy, Argues Linda Stasi in yesterday’s Daily News:
. . . Donald’s suffering from what I call dangerous dictator disorder, but what the shrinks call narcissistic personality disorder. Truth be told, however, The Donald’s not actually “suffering” from this malady, he’s reveling in it. . . .
Certified clinical psychologist Dr. Larry Arann pointed out that the International Classification of Diseases definition of narcissistic personality disorder, and it reads like Trump’s résumé.
It is defined as an “enduring pattern of grandiose beliefs and arrogant behavior together with an overwhelming need for admiration and a lack of empathy for (and even exploitation of) others . . . excessive self-love, egocentrism, grandiosity, exhibitionism, excessive needs for attention, and sensitivity to criticism.”
Ya think? . . .
Meanwhile, according to Joe Scarborough, a Republican, Trump asked a foreign policy adviser three times in the course of an hour’s briefing, “If we have nukes, why can’t we use them?”
