The Trump Primer Reminder

Beware yee who are closed-of-mind and lovers of Trumpism for that is the ultimate blindness.

Who is the real Donald Trump, and did the media have a reason to lie about that Donald for the last 70 years before he ran for and became the President of the United States thanks to being the only republic with a flawed and outdated Electoral College? The rest of the republics and/or democracies in the world use the popular vote, the one Trump lost.

Because Trump is a malignant narcissist and psychopath that craves attention and his cult of worshipers, he has a long history documented by the media and the courts.


Listen to Trump bragging about kissing and groping women without permission. He said, “And when you’re a star they let you do it. You can do anything.”

Politico reported, “Donald Trump might be one of the most deeply studied presidential candidates ever. Beginning in the early 1990s, as the real estate mogul dealt with corporate calamities, and until last year, when he descended the escalator at Trump Tower to announce his candidacy, a half-dozen serious biographies have been written about a man who has imprinted himself on American culture in towering gold letters. But those biographies—which dig into Trump’s family history, his early business successes and later financial disasters, his tabloid sex scandals and the television showmanship that saved him—had largely receded into the depths of Amazon’s bestseller list. Now those books—which have not always been to Trump’s liking; he sued one of the authors unsuccessfully for libel—have become precious source material for those eager to explain Trump ….”

In fact, Trump is not a great negotiator. The evidence he is a failure is the fact that he has been involved in more than 4,000 court cases. Great, honest negotiators rarely end up in court and seldom if ever lose when they do, because honesty works.

USA Today dug deep in Trump’s court history. He doesn’t win them all and many of them came about because he is a horrible negotiator and often breaks the contracts he signed.  There are words for that: liar and fraud.

In addition, Donald Trump is a malignant narcissist and this makes him very dangers as the President of the United States.

The American Psychiatry Association has a nine-point checklist for narcissism – if someone displays just five of the traits, they have Narcissistic Personality Disorder:

  • Has a grandiose sense of self-importance (e.g., exaggerates achievements and talents, expects to be recognized as superior without commensurate achievements).
  • Is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love.
  • Believes that he or she is “special” and unique and can only be understood by, or should associate with, other special or high-status people (or institutions).
  • Requires excessive admiration.
  • Has a sense of entitlement, i.e., unreasonable expectations of especially favourable treatment or automatic compliance with his or her expectations.
  • Is interpersonally exploitative, i.e., takes advantage of others to achieve his or her own ends.
  • Lacks empathy: is unwilling to recognise or identify with the feelings and needs of others.
  • Is often envious of others or believes that others are envious of him or her.
  • Shows arrogant, haughty behaviours or attitudes.

Even Trump’s most ardent supporters will have trouble denying at least five of those characteristics. I think there is evidence from Trump’s long history of behavior for all nine. For more about Trump’s dangerous mental illness, read The Mind of Donald Trump.

Then there’s Trump’s long history with organized crime from the United States to Russia. Politico reports, “Trump’s career has benefited from a decades-long and largely successful effort to limit and deflect law enforcement investigations into his dealings with top mobsters, organized crime associates, labor fixers, corrupt union leaders, con artists and even a one-time drug trafficker whom Trump retained as the head of his personal helicopter service.”

Then there are the biographies written before 2016.

The Art of Being Donald Trump by Timothy L. O’Brien was first published in 2005.

“Somewhere there is another country, far beyond the pale, known as Bad Taste, and Trump has devoted his life to racing through it and staking as many private claims as possible, pausing only to yodel back to the homeland songs of himself.”― Michael Lewis, author of Liar’s Poker and Moneyball

Trumped: The Inside Story of the Real Donald Trump-His Cunning Rise and Spectacular Fall by John R. O’Donnell and James Rutherford was first published in 1991.

“As chief operating officer at Trump Plaza, O’Donnell was in almost daily contact with his boss. If familiarity did not breed contempt, it eventually led to distaste. Trump at work emerges here as a cocksure boor who pays precious little attention to detail and pins the blame for his own misjudgments on subordinates. While he seems surprisingly dumb when it comes to weighing a deal’s downside risks against its potential rewards, he apparently suffers from near- terminal overconfidence. … And Trump at play with his yacht, helicopter, and other trophies is an equally unappealing eminence. A lover of gossip, The Donald has a phobia about germs, which makes him reluctant to shake hands with high-rolling customers or mingle with the celebs he adores and caters to. Nor does the abstemious Trump have a talent for extramarital flings. A long-running, oddly joyous affair with Marla Maples cost him his marriage to Ivana—and a good deal more.”

Let’s hope the next time Trump fails and falls, and he will because he had a history of failure, he doesn’t take all of humanity with him.

For more books about Trump, here’s the complete list. Stick to the books about Trump that came before 2016 and his political life as a candidate and then President of the United States.

There might not be much time left to read these books. If Trump is the Anti-Christ, and even he doesn’t know if he is (he is that ignorant), then the Trump Apocalypse will take place and that will lead to the Biblical one and the end of our species. Who will inherit the earth after we are gone: dogs, cats, cockroaches, ants, or rats?

This post was written lest we forget who the 45th President of the United States is because too many Americans are becoming globally infamous for being citizens of the fattest country on the planet (while a billion people around the world face starvation), for their short attention spans, even shorter memoires, and their ability to be easily fooled by false facts and conspiracy theories. I wonder if all that fat has anything to do with it. After all, too much body fat is bad for the brain. If true, maybe we can blame the rise of Trumpism on fast food, and The Donald loves fast food.

History.org says, “A 1786 essay refers to an early, non-English form of the familiar saying ‘Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.’”

  1. Lloyd, rewrite that comment without the contradictions within it. If “God made it clear” and “God gave us free will” and “the few that are chosen” and “no one knows…but God” and the “paradise” and the “somewhere in between” and the “religion that promised we will be saved if we join that religion” and “God warn as about repeatedly in detail” and “God clearly makes it know that only He will be the one to judge us”. Gotta talk straight here as you usually do. Who is the God you here claim to preach? Seriously.

    • The God I speak of is the one I learned about in the Bible (and reading intellectually supported Op-eds about the creation of the Bible and what it might have originally meant before all the translations through the millennia) – mostly the Old Testament, not from any church/religious pulpit, because I have doubts about Jesus Christ being God and/or His son due to a number of facts based on that historical time period and then what caused the birth of Christianity as a different religion with thousands of different sects many with their own translations of the Old and the New Testaments. For instance, from what I’ve learned, punctuation (commas, etc.) didn’t exist until around the Elizabethan period, and the placement of a commas in one Bible phrase can change its meaning, and those commas and other punctuation marks didn’t exist when Moses started writing the Old Testament based on thousands of years of oral history, a project that was finished by Moses brother after Moses died). There’s a book written by a former devout Christian who was considered one of if not the global expert on the Bible who went to Israel and studied the most original source material left of the original Old Testament text and what he learned caused him to repudiate Christianity based on comparing that text with the English translated versions where punctuation was introduced. I can’t remember the name of that Bible scholar (He may even still be alive or his book that explains why he renounced Christianity but I think it had something to do with the Lies told in Christ’s name.

      All of the copies of the original Old Testament were destroyed, I think by the Babylonians when they conquered the Jewish state, and the only reason we ended up with the Old Testament was because of Ptolemy, one of Alexander the Great’s generals who became the pharaoh of Egypt after Alexander died and his empire was divided between his generals. Ptolemy built the Library of Alexandria with plans to gather all the books that existed in any language and to bring back the Old Testament of the Jews, he gathered Jewish rabbis to rewrite the Old Testament from memory but in Greek, not the original language of the original text, and there were translation errors even then. And every translation from one language to another through the ages has twisted whatever the original once said. Imagine what the Bible would say if Trump wrote a translation and Trump is not unique in history. There have been other Trumps that rose to power and many of them are responsible for the fall of empires and civilizations.

      In fact, why does Christianity as a major religion even exist today? That answer is because of Constantine, the Emperor of the Eastern Roman Empire, centuries after Christ.

      Here’s a piece on this issue. The fact is that the foundation of Christianity is based on faulty translations through the ages, and then there is the fact that Jesus Christ never wrote anything down. What survives of Christ’s teaching is what his most devout students remembered and most of them didn’t write anything down until decades after Christ was gone.

    • God made it clear what he will do when he intervenes if it comes to that. No same person should want that to happen. God gave us free will and it is up to sensible people to stop the Trumps of this world from bringing on the end of times where most of us die horribly and the few that are chosen and no one knows who they will be but God, don’t end up in paradise but somewhere in between. Any religion that promised we will be saved if we join that religion is clearly a false profit that the Bible and God warn as about repeatedly in detail. God clearly makes it know that only He will be the one to judge us – anyone else that claims they know what God will do is a liar, a false prophet and not to be trusted.

      • I adreed the only one who knows who is going to be safe is God the only Real fear Judge , to be honest it’s no the religion that safe any person , the truth it’s the fact that the lies never will win , but this world the’r are many evils people to many problems PEOLE are lovers of money , people like you kind are extinguish because your knowledge and wisdom are priceless and you share with everyone especially I appreciate a lot , I hope I column meet you in person someday.
