18. Yes, call him an evil genius!

Don't give him an "out," that he is a "moron," or "in mental decline," or any other plea that he could use if he is indicted. Don't give him anything that he can hide behind, or that his supporters can use to excuse him, or that his supporters can use to "justify" that he was maligned and the justice system was rigged against him!

I have been studying this man for many months now. He is ignorant (not stupid, just uninformed) about anything that he deems not to be of interest to him because it is not perceived to be of benefit to him. What is perceived to be of benefit to him is anything that multiplies his personal fortune, or the fortunes of his cronies who will in turn increase his personal fortune. This even applies to his own family. His son spoke the truth when he said that his father "only sees one color: green."

This is a man who - for whatever reason, maybe dyslexia? - appears to have a great deal of trouble reading. Over the years, he has indeed developed an outstanding memory from practice and necessity. He let Cohen handle any paperwork or "dirty work." He learned to verbally dodge and weave and work his way out of problems. Age may have taken the edge off his memory ability, but that is still his preferred way to handle things - it is why he lives on the phone.

Adding to this is a pretty good amount of physical endurance for his age and a complete, total absence of conscience or any belief system or loyalty, which make him a very dangerous individual. And over it all is a ferocious self-confidence and ego, which allow him to lie at will, in any way that will serve him in the moment.

He has learned many "con" tricks over the years that served him well in forming a TV persona. Many of these old tricks, such as repeating a lie so often it becomes accepted as the truth, amazingly still work on the public, because human nature evolves slowly. P.T. Barnum would have tipped his hat to this guy.

What are his weaknesses? In his heart is a black hole of neediness for recognition and adulation. He is dying to impress anyone whom he holds as an inspiration, which are basically strongmen, dictators, and "tough guys." He needs the adoring crowds at rallies like he needs oxygen. He is threatened and terrified by strong women; being "bested" by a woman is, by his thinking, being completely emasculated. Also, because he is so verbal and seems to work from presence of mind, that is, whatever his thoughts are on at the moment, he has lacks any verbal filter and can sometimes say too much. His attorneys are doing their best to protect him from perjuring himself. He is also hedonistic, which was easily covered when he was a businessman, but in the light of public office can cause compound problems.

I am very anxious to see Moore's movie, as I hope that he has some ideas as to how we can come together as a nation and realign with the ideals upon which this country was founded. I look to smarter people than myself for help for this!

Bottom line, beware of the one in the Oval Office. He is in a position of unbelievable power and is difficult to remove from that power. We dismiss him as a "moron" at great peril.
