Let us not forget.

Let us not forget that everything Trump says and does is to profit himself and his family. To build up his brand and his fragile ego.

.............................................

Trumpís long history of lying about 9/11 and exploiting it for personal gain

snip

Even as the smoke was literally still rising from the World Trade Center, he saw a terrorist attack against America as an opportunity for self-aggrandizement and self-promotion. He eventually turned it into a weapon of political hate, but in the immediate aftermath, Trump saw it as an opportunity for brand enhancement and wasted no time.

I can already hear the presidentís supporters protest that Iím being terribly unfair. Well, here are some things the president has done with regard to 9/11:

Trump bragged that the destruction of the Twin Towers made his building the tallest in Lower Manhattan.

In a television interview on the day of the attacks, the anchor asked Trump if a building he owned near the World Trade Center had sustained damage. Hereís how he replied:

Forty Wall Street actually was the second-tallest building in downtown Manhattan, and it was, actually, before the World Trade Center, was the tallest. And then when they built the World Trade Center it became known as the second-tallest, and now itís the tallest.

Trump looked out and saw a scene in which 2,753 people died, and said, Hey, that means my building is the tallest one around! Who thinks like that? Trump, thatís who.

1. Exactly!

He doesn't give a damn about the country, or the people. He uses his cult followers to stroke his ego, something every narcissist needs, but he doesn't care about them, or their problems at all. Everything he does now as president will somehow put money in his pocket. Bribes, kickbacks, pay for play, nothing else matters but the money.

5. His (fill in the blank) is always the tallest, the biggest and the best.

But, thanks to Stormy, we all know he has a mushroom dick with Yeti pubes. That will always be my truth.
