What I think is really weird about the Twit?

He just doesn't care. Doesn't care about the environment. Doesn't care about people. Doesn't care about the country. Doesn't care about the people he hurts.

He does care about revenge. He really gets off on sadistic revenge.

How does someone just turn out empty?

2. He turned out "empty" because his parents

didn't show him love. They were probably very critical of him and didn't like him. He's an emotional black hole. Trauma like that becomes toxic and permanent, like what he is doing to immigrant children.

He is an empty shell. The only person he cares about is himself. Maybe Iwanka, too, who knows. He is so full of himself, there is no room for anyone else. Plus, he is REPULSIVE in EVERY way. Of course, he is a perfect republican, the gop recognized that as soon as the rubles started flowing into their coffers. Unfortunately, he has spawned kids who share his lack of values.

Trump has no understanding of anything except self gratification.

and experience appropriate consequences when they do bad or illegal things. I think jails have many residents who thought they were to good to get caught, or something similar. They did worse and worse more serious crimes until they did get caught. Trump will most likely be in jail some day.

As a gay male, that last bit of your statement just made me shiver. Mainly because I have heard that same thing from those who would tell me my sexuality is a 'choice'. I guess being from a family with a long history of mental issues has nothing to do with my mental state either. I am glad things worked out for you, but they don't for everyone, and it isn't always just 'a choice' for it not to. (Side note, I also chose not to be like my father or mother. Didn't stop the breakdowns from happening.)

88. I apologize if I offended you.

I did not mean to make it sound like having mental issues is a choice. I am saying it is a choice if you start harming people. Yes, I do have my mental issues from all of the crap I went through but I choose to work through it without hurting others.

I know people who have had a chance to get help and people who were not able to get help. The ones I know who have not been able to get help still choose to not abuse others.

I fully realize that I am lucky to have a good support system behind me to help me work through my issues while others do not. Working with the homeless opens your eyes to that.

I think it is absolute bullshit when people say that sexuality is a choice. It has nothing to do with being or not being abused or waking up one day and deciding what your sexuality is going to be. That's like telling me that being born with my disabilities was my choice or that I act like I have one because I want to get out of doing things. Yes, I have had the last one told to me.

93. Thank you but no apology necessary...

I re-read the post and decided that I had probably over-reacted to what you said. You are correct in that a person can choose not to hurt others. And, it is obvious that child in the WH chooses to behave the way he does and act the way he does. Also, I too have been told those same things about my issues. Of course, sometimes you have to remember that most people are about as health-savvy as that pasty blob in the Oval Office. What is the old saying, "If he is not bleeding from the ears, he is fine."? Hell, even now, with several major health problems that have basically destroyed my life, I get that crap. Mainly because my issues are not visible. After so many years of seeing and dealing with this lunacy, I sometimes wish my back would erupt out of my body, and fly over a crowd of people, spraying them with all my innards. Then, maybe... maybe... about 10% might believe me about what I go through each day. The same is regrettably true of the MAGAts... they won't see what a disaster they have wrought until it rips their doors open and rains horror all over them. And even then, some would prefer to be Nero than hero.

69. look at how babies react to Pres. Obama. They all smile and are happy. Now, if a baby

looks at a cruel and hateful parent maybe they somehow decide to emulate that parent. Especially if that parent is almost the only person that child sees. Doesn't get out and see other parents and other children. My mother was a horror, but at an early age I spent a year with my aunt who was nice. I remember thinking as I was being returned to my family, these people are mean!

27. Yep...here's an article from 2016

snip (bolding mine for emphasis):

From early childhood, Hurt wrote, Fred used to tell his boys “you are a killer … you are a king … you are a killer … you are a king…” As a result, he wrote, Donald came to believe that “he cannot be one without the other. As his father has pointed out over and over again, most people are weaklings. Only the strong survive. You have to be a killer if you want to be a king.”

At first Fred assumed that the king — and the heir to his business — would be his eldest son and namesake, Fred Jr., known as Freddy. But it became increasingly clear to everyone that Freddy was neither killer nor king. Instead, Blair wrote, he was a “sweet lightweight … loveable loser.” He tried his best, but his frantic scramble to please only seemed to infuriate his father. Mistakes — such as ordering new windows for a building when existing ones were still salvageable — earned him public tongue-lashings from his father. When Fred did something well, on the other hand, his sister Maryanne has said, his father pointedly said nothing at all.

Donald observed all this, and the message was to never be vulnerable. “He was the first Trump boy out there and I subconsciously watched his moves,” he said of his brother in a Playboy interview years later. “I saw people really taking advantage of Fred, and the lesson I learned was always to keep up my guard 100 percent.”

So all I've heard are stories that indicate distance and disinterest from his parents - an absence of nurture and affirmation. I wouldn't be at all surprised to learn they were all manner of abusive, not just absent of affection.

Some kind of screwed up wiring and his parents' upbringing just created the perfect storm. Remember, he used to throw rocks at the baby next door in his playpen when he was a young boy. As far as I know, he was not physically abused, but he seems to have been born with a propensity toward cruelty or a sadistic streak.

I don't really care how "loved" he was or wasn't or if his daddy was mean to him, it's no excuse for his behavior as an adult. There are millions of people in the world who have had much worse childhoods than Donald Trump and almost all of them have turned out to be better people. He is just weak, self-absorbed and narcissistic in the extreme and that is why he is such a clusterfuck of horrible personality traits.

Lot of bad parenting is conveniently "forgotten" once the child is an adult. I've seen people I'm very close to revise their parenting history even though they know I remember the awful things they did as a parent.

Why people want to pretend he is all kinds of other things, but not quite a psychopath--I don't get it. Read Dr. Robert Hare's checklist and you will see for yourself that not only does he check off the boxes, but he scores highly. The sooner we come to terms with this the sooner we will stop asking the stupid "why does he" questions and stop saying things like "he has struck a new low."

31. K&R. Agree and thanks for that reference.

Purely as an amateur, I've been saying that for a long time - particularly after watching his performances during the 2015/2016 campaign with his long list of lies and deceptions. Hardly anyone but a psychopath could have pulled that off, but only with the help of a number of others of his type. I suspect his father's nature and wealth (along with his youth spent in isolation) added the nasty layer of narcissism.

The frightening thing is that both the GOP and corporate world attract these characters and they have massive resources behind them, both financial power and brain power in the form of think tanks. At least Trump's psychopathy is in plain view, but it's the thousands of them that work behind the scenes and mostly in positions of power that we should worry about.

I'm now curious if Dr. Hare's book "Snakes in Suits" would be a good read or just a depressing review of the obvious. I see he has a second edition coming out this month.

63. I would read it

It would be a good read and the point of his books is to educate us about psychopathy because they walk among us and many gravitate to positions of opportunism and power. Not all of them become mass killers. Dr. Hare wants people to be able to understand how psychopaths can use charm and other skills to gain trust and advantage in order for us to identify them before we allow them to devastate our lives.

Dr. Hare distinguishes between sociopaths and psychopaths as being born, socialized, or both. In the case of Trump he was clearly born a psychopath and had the advantage of wealth and power. His parents did struggle with him, though, and we have evidence of early conduct disorder. Narcissism is often a characteristic of psychopaths and it seems too many got snagged over that obvious facet of Trump's personality even though he is much, much more than just a narcissist.

Too late for us with Trump, though. Like you said he revealed himself during the campaign and with the help of others (lots of snakes in suits) gained the office of POTUS. The extent of cheating, hacking, intimidation, coercion, and other methods of manipulation (including criminal) are still actively engaged even as we are learning about the extent of what the hell happened.

We need to cut these parasites away before the devastation they cause does us all in. This must be our number one concern, We can't accomplish anything else until we rid ourselves of the major blood-suckers.

Did you ever notice when a reporter asks a question that he WANTS to answer, he yaks away for several minutes. When the same reporter (or another one) asks something he doesn't want to answer, he cups his hand on his ear and pretends he didn't hear it. With the helicopter in the background it's the perfect excuse. "Whoops, times up, gotta go!"

Chump will do anything to avoid answering direct questions from the media.

15. sociopaths and/or psychopaths can't empathy - have NO conscience.

In the former case, the behavior is taught/learned and in the latter it is inherited genetically. With Trump I suspect a bit of both, though only an fMRI of what there is of his "brain" would tell for sure.

In either case, he has NO conscience and cannot feel empathy.

He is mentally ill. His brain does not function normally. It's not fixable. It's pathological and permanent.

Many CxOs and Wall St financiers are psychopaths. Because they lack empathy or a conscience. They do WHATEVER it takes to make a buck or millions of them without an iota of remorse, empathy or conscience. This makes THEM "winners". This is the world Don the Con occupies.

Religious people just call it "evil".

Constantly starving and unable to ever feel filled up.

83. Hungry ghosts is a perfect description.

He is a bottomless blackhole of neediness.

The presidency of the US would be the ultimate prize/affirmation for pretty much anyone. Not him. Nothing is ever enough.

23. I grew up with a narcissistic mother.

It was empty and lonely but it didn't destroy me. Any child of a narcissist is broken but that doesn't mean you can't figure it out and undo a lot if the damage.

I am a very broken person when it comes to relationships but I was able to fix a lot of the damage. Growing up with almost no affection does a lot of damage but I certainly am not anything like Trump.

He just blows my mind.

Don't under estimate him. He is not an idiot. He just doesn't care about anything. He has no curiosity at all.

28. I remember reading this article before the election

in which Richard Branson depicts a lunch he had with 45.

http://www.businessinsider.com/richard-branson-on-meeting-donald-trump-2016-10

Branson said their encounter took place years ago, when Trump had invited him to a one-on-one lunch in his Manhattan apartment.

"Even before the starters arrived he began telling me about how he had asked a number of people for help after his latest bankruptcy and how five of them were unwilling to help," Branson wrote, although he didn't identify the five people.

"He told me he was going to spend the rest of his life destroying these five people."


Later in the article Branson describes a meeting he had with Hillary Clinton:

Branson then compared the interaction with a lunch he had with Hillary Clinton, during which the two discussed issues such as women's rights and education reform. Clinton was a "good listener" and "eloquent speaker," and offered a stark contrast to her Republican opponent, Branson wrote.

"As she understands well, the president of the United States needs to understand and be engaged with wider world issues, rather than be consumed by petty personal quarrels," he said.


As usual, we were warned.

30. He doesn't even care enough about others to bother with speaking coherently.

To him, the world does not consist of other people he can communicate to. To him, the world is a canvas onto which he can project himself.

32. don't blame his parents

1%ers do not raise their own children. little Donald probably was such a little reptile that fred couldn't pay anyone to pretend to like him. finally military school, the last resort for undisciplinable boys. Donald coulds not make it there either.

i'm going out on a limb here, but maybe trump had too much tv as a child. trump sees himself as the cute child star of a bad 50s satiation comedy. or even more likely, as the billy mummy character in that twilight zone episode ……….

I really do not care what made him the ignoramus he is today - I just know I hate every single thing about him!! I can't even stand to look at him and change the channel if he comes on. I look at all of his supporters and I can't believe it - apparently, they are all just like him otherwise they would be as disgusted as we all are. It is sad and scary there are so many that are just like him. How can the rest of us survive them?

instead of trying to find a way to fix him.

But in a family of shitty morality and ethics, that's not surprising.

47. The question is: How do we get this sick fuck out of office?

If he has done this much damage to the country -- both domestically and internationally -- in just two and a half years, what else can he destroy in the months or God forbid years that he remains in office?

I think we can agree that if he loses the 2020 election -- both popular vote and electoral college -- he's not going to go peacefully. Remember his constant repetition of "rigged election" during the 2016 campaign, and saying he'd only accept the results if he won? I predict that if loses he'll contest the result of the election in the courts, eventually ending up in the most politicized SCOTUS in history.

Another prediction: He will not debate the Democratic nominee. Ever.

49. "It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men."

~ Frederick Douglas ~

I don't think he was raised in a very kind environment, and I certainly don't think he will ever choose to engage in self-reflection to repair what was broken.

He is a man of greed, a man of self, and man of petulance... and I think he's completely satisfied with that being the apex of who he is and who he will be.

58. He's a sociopath and he's been that way his entire life.

His upbringing is part of the reason for this (constantly being bailed out of trouble by his father and never having to suffer any true consequences for his actions), but not all of it. He was like this even as a kid.

I once read an article about his childhood and how he behaved back then. One time, he and another group of boys tormented a younger boy by throwing rocks at him. Another thing he frequently did supposedly was he would claim something as a statement of fact and insist that it was true even after being provided evidence to the contrary. That TOTALLY sounds like how he is today 60 years later. His body has gotten older, wrinklier, and fatter, but, personality-wise, he's still the same person he was as a child.

86. A Human Stew

Frankly, I think that Trump is a human stew. By that, I mean that he is a sort of Frankenstein monster, created by the compilation of dysfunctional people who voted for him: the ignorant; the greedy; the bigoted; the self-righteous; the fanatical; the paranoid; etc. Thus, he is an empty shell that contains all the negativity of those groups, and he is unleashing all of their horror upon all of us.
