But he is buying into GOP fictions again. He used to pull down the GOP fictions. I think they'll

notice. Trump is a dyslexic and like any dyslexic does well on defence of aggressors in war (the dyslexic Churchill won by sheer will) not on the offence catapulting the propaganda and GOP lies (the dyslexic Napoleon lost in the end) in war. In sales dyslexics do great.

I think part of Trump's appeal is that he makes his followers feel smart in comparison. Smart in

that he makes mistakes and that makes them feel smarter and they like the 'show jumping' of his performances (will he make it or not) and/or smart in that they understand his simplicity and that makes them feel like they belong with him. He also is creative and brings up novel ideas which also makes people feel smart. So it is a trifecta of smart for those who follow him. That is why trying to point out he is a narcissist, a sleezy businessman and a serial political liar doesn't work on them.

Trump is dyslexic. He uses episodic memory. He needs to be attacked to come alive. Being attacked is

an episode. He can remember all about it and has great comebacks. Ask him to lay out one of his policies, and he won't be able to. There is no emotion in that. He'll go blank.

Donald Trump spent much of a big rally thrashing Republican rivals who no longer threaten him

"SNIP...........


Donald Trump may be trying to unite the Republican Party, but he's still having fun mocking his former rivals.

During a Wednesday rally in Southern California, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee ran through some of his most high-profile rhetorical attacks on Republican Party figures.

For one, Trump laid into 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, who last month refused to endorse Trump and called for the real-estate magnate to release his tax returns.

Claiming that he had "a store that's worth more money" than Romney, Trump said if Romney would've decided to run for president, "he would've been out quickly."

I am one. I saw a mention on google. I recognize the strengths and weaknesses in him. I'm not saying

it excuses him. Or that dyslexia in any way causes him to be a racist or an asshole. I just want to know if he is going to be a racist, narcissist for the GOP, or for himself. That matters. In an election. Some people who realize they will be voting for a new George W. Bush might think twice. His numbers are rising as the Republicans see him towing the GOP line. People on the right should know what they are getting in that.

There is nothing wrong with dyslexia, it has strengths

And weaknesses, and a whole variety of manifestations. I'm dyslexic to. It is a different way of seeing the world. They make great scientists, business people, actors and are gifted politicians because they can read a crowd. Dyslexia is a type of brain. It has nothing to do with IQ or character. Kennedy, the smartest president, had a type of dyslexia. So did Einstein. So did Edison. So did Churchill. My point was that dyslexics can know their own strengths or not. And what type is Trump going to be. I was a dyslexic who was used in my teens. I am a dyslexic now who knows myself. Both are my fault. I think the Trump campaign should man up and declare if he plans on regurgitating GOP policy and thus is as vital a puppet to the GOP as the dyslexic Tom Cruise is to scientology. Or dyslexic Ronald Reagan was to the myths created by the GOP in the 1980s.

Do you understand my point now? Trump is bad because wealth and fame have made him such a narcissist that he knowingly, because dyslexics are great at empathy, slurs Mexicans, women, Muslims, African Americans etc. He knows better. He knows how to feel what others feel. He chooses to ignore that and attack large swaths of others to gain power.I want him to qualify his candidacy a bit and say what model of dyslexic leadership he will follow: puppet or not. Then we can go from there and talk about all his character flaws that have nothing to do with dyslexia.

Democrats should ask Trump if he is going to be a patsy dyslexic like Ronald Reagan

and George W. Bush were. They did what the GOP told them to do. They thought they didn't know any better. The alternative is the actualized dyslexic like Woodrow Wilson, JFK, or Winston Churchill. Which is it Donald? What type of dyslexic leadership will he practice?

GOP is sure going for the Jewish vote with all this rat****ing of Hillary's

campaign. Does anyone truly believe this crap? I'll tell you a story. Right wingers complained that Canadian government institutions minister was an airhead because she said she had support for her legislation in 2 million tweets. The day before, some American blog did a story on Trudeau's wife and how she was not popular with Canadians when she wanted a bigger staff to do more speaking events than normal for a pm wife. She's that popular. The article's proof was 5 negative of Sophie Gregory Trudeau tweets.

I'm really beginning to think that the right in the USA has a coordinated attack on the Trudeau's lest some of their dumb luck, at working in a parliamentary system, and getting lots of liberal things done, shows Americans what life could be like. So in some cases millions of tweets mean nothing. In other cases a few tweets, supposedly by Hillary supporters, a few tweets are golden. What do you call a group that has one set of rules for themselves and another set of rules for their enemies: Republicans. Or hypocrites. Same difference.

Newsom is dyslexic like Trump. They are great at attacking. She needs Newsom to counter trump's

agility and authenticity. That is more important.

Trump is a dyslexic. When attacked they are very nimble. The attack itself sets up the situation

for the dyslexic to source a very apt comeback. Better to ask Trump to take a few minutes lay out one of his policies in detail...then he'll struggle. It is no surprise that when on the podium he lists all the attacks on him and then responds. Indeed he is so dependant on being attacked that he he attacks himself.
