Trump doesn’t trust people because he knows that he is untrustworthy: former senator

Published

on

President Donald Trump’s niece, Mary Trump, has released her book to the press Tuesday, revealing the psychological issues that the president faces, according to an actual psychologist who has examined him over the years. When speaking about the new information on MSNBC, former Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) noted that the book confirms assumptions armchair shrinks have made for the past four years.

“The fact is, Donald’s pathologies are so complex and his behaviors so often inexplicable that coming up with an accurate and comprehensive diagnosis would require a full battery of psychological and neurophysical tests that he’ll never sit for,” said Mary Trump.

MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace noted that many have been reluctant to say what has been clear for years. “That there’s something clearly pathological about the penchant for lying about the abusive behavior toward so many former staffers and cabinet secretaries. People like Jim Mattis who served the nation for decades. And here you have someone deep inside his own family, an explanation.”

McCaskill said that she could remember the first time she used the word “liar” to describe the president and how weird it was for her to use such a description for someone in that position.

“Typically, we try, even if we disagree with the president or we disagree with their characterization, to demonize someone with that label is a tough thing to do,” said McCaskill. “But it has become so easy because he’s such a liar. So, is this a big surprise that his niece says that cheating is a way of life for him? Is there any wonder that he’s so nervous about all of his financial records because I guarantee you they’re full of lies, and he depended on them to get loans and things that are illegal to do. So, he has an ethos of cheating and lying. That’s why he doesn’t trust anyone because he knows at his essence, he’s not trustworthy.”

Trump’s latest attack on Joe Biden is stunningly delusional — even for him

Published

on

Few ever accuse President Donald Trump of subtlety. But in a new speech in Cleveland on Thursday, he let loose with a particularly wild rant against his Democratic opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden, that was over-the-top, even for him.

It’s worth just quoting in full:

He’s following the radical left agenda. Take away your guns. Destroy your Second Amendment. No religion! No anything! Hurt the Bible! Hurt God! He’s against God! He’s against guns! He’s against energy, our kind of energy. Uh, I don’t think he’s going to do too well in Ohio.

Many people pointed out that there’s much more evidence that Biden is a committed Christian than there is for Trump. But almost that seems to miss several key points about how wild this is:

Angst-ridden Republicans should have acted when Trump put his reelection above national security concerns: conservative columnist

Published

on

Writing in the Washington Post this Thursday, columnist Jennifer Rubin says that Senate Republicans are in serious trouble, especially in light of the stimulus bill they rolled out this week.

According to Rubin, the Senate GOP is in dire straits because "they have allowed the anti-government, anti-science Trump sycophants to disclaim any interest in the bill, thereby handing the reins to Democrats."

Rubin writes that some Republicans saying they want to see essential workers being taken care of in the bill are speaking up too late. "If only they they had some power in February to remove the unfit and corrupt president from office, instead of leaving him there to purge witnesses from his administration, seek vengeance on foes, force out inspectors general and botch the response to the coronavirus," Rubin writes.

Facebook said Thursday it took down accounts running a deceptive campaign out of Romania pretending to be Americans supporting US President Donald Trump ahead of the coming election.

The leading online social network removed 35 Facebook accounts, three pages, and 88 Instagram accounts as part of an ongoing fight against "coordinated inauthentic behavior," according to security policy head Nathaniel Gleicher.

"The people behind this network used fake accounts to pose as Americans, amplify and comment on their own content, and manage pages including some posing as President Trump fan pages," Gleicher said.
