If You Needed Further Proof

    President Trump and his wife Melania and their personal White House staff are empty self absorbed shells of human beings. Robots could provide more empathy. How to describe the first family? No self awareness, no compassion, no recognition of others emotions or loss,  unable to offer sincere condolences,  no feelings for the loss suffered by the infant they hold.  Who but a Trump would grin widely and give a thumbs up, while his also grinning wife holds an injured recently orphaned infant in a hospital? And then publish the photo on the First Ladies twitter? What kind of person does that? Did Trump see this as a personal "win", as all 8 other wounded victims still in the hospital declined to see him?

    On a visit to El Paso this week, the president flashed a thumbs-up when posing with the two-month-old, whose parents Andre and Jordan Anchondo were shot dead last Saturday. When the picture was posted on the first lady’s Twitter account on Thursday, it prompted outrage.    UK Guardian

    The baby's step dad tried to shield his wife and baby by stepping between them and the gunman.  He was killed instantly by one high velocity assault weapon round.

    The round went right through the dad and then killed his wife.

    AK-47's and knockoffs are ballistically designed to kill people, quickly and in large numbers. They have a killing range of 1000 yards, (not feet). Rounds fired can keep killing after penetrating people, wood, metal doors, building structure and vehicles. They are absolutely the worst weapon to use for self defense, unless you are on a battlefield.

    The picture above displays the Trump's blithely unaware vain and self-obsessed behavior.  So inappropriate. And the photo is broadcast by the White House on twitter.

    The Trump's also display key characteristics of sociopaths:

    • Superficial charm.
    • Manipulative and exploitive. They see self-serving behaviors as normal.
    • Grandiose sense of oneself
    • Pathological lying
    • Lack of remorse, shame or guilt

    If I may offer a suggestion: sociopathic chlld? Still going gaga over the florid praise:

    Trump on said today he received a "beautiful letter" from North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, hours before the regime launched further projectiles https://t.co/gMFlJ94M6u

    I.E., remember her?

     


    I see the NYT has done some followup:


    Trump's a user. The White House released the photo.  The Trump's used the relatives who are Trumpers, to get the baby in as a prop for a photo op, as there were no actual victims, in hospital or released, who wanted to be "consoled" by Trump. The baby has broken fingers from his dead mom falling on him and I don't think the deceased parents are even buried yet.

    The Guardian reports Trump already has dozens of ads on Facebook aimed at Latinos using video clips from the El Paso hospital visit with hospital staff "first responders", and where he apparently attacks Beto Dems etc .


    Trump denies the infant was the only El Paso victim who refused to meet him.

    No problem, Trump's co-host of his Presidential Reality Show, despot Kim Jong Un, may join Trump for another Make Denuclearization Great Again Summit episode in the "not too distant future." :

    "..Mr. Trump insisted that reports that several survivors of the mass shooting in El Paso last weekend had refused to see him when he visited their hospital on Wednesday were false, but provided no evidence... The president said that the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, had offered him “a small apology” for that country’s recent short-range missile tests, which violate United Nations resolutions but which Mr. Trump has brushed off. “I look forward to seeing Kim Jong Un in the not too distant future!” he wrote.".  link


    Trump blamed the failing NYT for blaming him for racist speech that incited the El Paso shooter. "Hillary won the presidency by 3 million votes," Trump said, "So when you read that the president said something racist it's clear that Hillary said it."


    Max Boot @ WaPo today on the newest absurdity: Does Trump really want to debate mental fitness?

    President Trump projects so much that it’s a wonder he hasn’t gotten a job in a movie theater. At 6:44 p.m. on Saturday, about the time that normal people are getting ready for dinner, he tweeted: “Joe Biden just said, ‘We believe in facts, not truth.’ Does anybody really believe he is mentally fit to be president? We are ‘playing’ in a very big and complicated world. Joe doesn’t have a clue!”

    Is this really the debate that Trump wants to have? Does he really want to have an argument about who is “mentally fit to be president” and who has a “clue” about what’s happening in the world? Because his own utterances of the past few days have confirmed what everyone who hasn’t joined his cult already knows: He is both unfit to be president and utterly clueless.

    Just a few hours before launching his attack on Biden, Trump retweeted a comedian’s sick suggestion that the Clintons were responsible for the suicide of accused child molester Jeffrey Epstein [....]


    OK....how about who's the "rock star",,?

    The President was treated like a Rock Star inside the hospital, which was all caught on video. They all loved seeing their great President!

    Never gonna run around and desert you
    Never gonna make you cry
    Never gonna say goodbye

    But but but I was under the impression that being a rock star was a bad thing

    Inside Joe Biden’s rock-star treatment for Florida speech @ NYPost, Feb. 26 (I note that this meme was flogged at many right wing sites at the time.

    So earlier in the year the self-described billionaire was the real man of the people and the supposed blue dog was the phony that's really the rock star, hobnobbing with "Hollywood" and their ilk.

    These Trump operatives, they got short memories about brand?


    They're trying everything under the sun. Tonight he's a uniter, not a divider, heh:

    Gees I was kind of being facetious about zany branding efforts. But then I just went over to WaPo home page and see this:

    Trump vexed by branding crisis: How to shed the label of ‘racist’

    Throughout his career as a real estate magnate, a celebrity provocateur and a politician, President Trump has recoiled from being called the r-word, even though some of his actions and words have been plainly racist.


    bizarre projection game going on here:

    You are losing your fastball— very weak troll. Bullying is the most anti-American thing in our culture and it is emanating from the Oval Office. Many have called and are willing to work on a necessary replacement. Time to call in a good relief pitcher. @potus is lost. https://t.co/7fiFHbd7O6

    Edit to add:

     



    All that is likely true but  I don't see how it helps to have Scaramucci say it. On could easily say that Scaramucci had mentally declined also but to do that one would have to assume against all evidence that at one point he had some mental agility.


    Kind of my thought.

    Is psychopath + mentally feeble better or worse than just psychopath?

    Hitler was addicted to pervitin the last yea or so - watching him drool convinced the new commandant over Paris *not* to destroy the city as per orders, certainly the first time he disobeyed.


    He's on a real tear with an "I am not a racist" meme after the lousy Fox News poll results. He retweeted all of these in a row late Sun. evening:

    Trump rarely uses racial categories. It is the media and Democratic leaders who routinely issue race-based denunciations, writes @HMDatMI@MorningsMaria⁩ ⁦@FoxBusinesshttps://t.co/hejJnfA0OQ
