THE CALM BEFORE THE STORM

Trump Speaks, You Should Listen

It would be too easy to call this guy a “moron,” but we might want to remember that he tends to do everything he says he will do, and he is the President of the United States. But while everyone is trying to analyze the assassin who took 58 lives in Las Vegas, it might be time to keep our eyes on the man in the White House.

The reason most experts are having trouble wrapping their minds around what happened in Vegas is because we rarely must deal with older, rich, white guys having lots of guns and ammunition. We cannot put his actions into the racially motivated box, or the angry immigrant box or the reason we need a wall box. It has not been referred to as “domestic terrorism,” why?

Donald Trump has his fingers on the nuclear codes. We want to believe that this older, rich, white guy wouldn’t use that ultimate power without a logical discussion and game plan. As we learn of the conflicts inside his administration, however, there is an uneasy feeling that logic is not in play here.

Last night (10-5-2017), with military families gathered around him for a photo op at the White House, out of nowhere, the president asked, “You know what this is?” A reporter suggested that Trump tell them, and he replied, “Maybe it’s the calm before the storm.” When pressed to explain himself, he said only, “You’ll find out.”

There is a big difference between a “bully” and a “moron” and it’s possible that one person could be both. Bullies act to keep the power of fear over their victims, but maybe all the cable news channels repeating that Tillerson called Trump a “moron” has forced another part of the Donald to the surface.

Gelotophobia is a fear of being laughed at, and is a type of social phobia. No one wants to be ridiculed, but some people have an exceedingly deep fear of being laughed at and their actions are driven by this fear.

After mixing narcissism and gelotophobia into the brain of a pathological liar, you get someone like Donald Trump. He has to be front and center, and when he says things that seem to be non-sequiturs, we should listen. They can be revealing forecasts of things to come. Trump believes everything he says and he might even have somewhat of a god complex, an unshakable belief and inflated feeling of personal ability, privilege, or infallibility. Does the Donald derive a sense of power with his predictions?

Certainly, you could say he was talking about Hurricane Nate that might be hitting the US this weekend. He could also have been talking about his problems the press is stirring up with this Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson. Perhaps he was suggesting a future military action somewhere in the world. Perhaps he was hinting that pulling out of the Iran Nuclear deal would cause such a fuss that it could be classified in storm terms.

On these pages in the past, we have written about the uncertainty that our great Orange Leader brings to the table in the form of his unpredictability. He may think of it as red meat for his base, but the rest of America doesn’t want to swallow the unknown. Most citizens want their leader to be honest, open and upfront with them.

What we and the whole Republican party now realize is that Donald J. Trump is not a mass appeal person. He was created by conning New Yorkers, inflated by reality TV and blown up into a political character by using Twitter to stir conspiracy theories and self-absorbed opinions. Nothing about him is authentic.

It’s overwhelming to me that we are debating whether his most important cabinet member called him a moron. It is depressing that Trump, who wasn’t voted into his position by a majority of Americans, is allowed to disregard 61% of the nation who disagree with the way he’s handling things. I am not going to wait around to see if he is right. America should say, “You’re fired,” as soon as possible.

Mike Pence (next in line) is another bozo on the bus. Paul Ryan (second in line) can make some sense, but his dogma is apparent when it comes to facts and actions. The person who makes the most sense in the Republican party is the guy who pitched himself for President on his record of getting things done. Sadly, he failed to cut through the circus of Donald Trump. I’m talking about John Kasich. How do we make him President?

Donald Trump will go down as the most colorful and worst US president in our history. But we should listen to him. This is the calm before the storm. The storm will be a constitutional crisis of his own making. Mueller is getting all the facts and when we learn what really happened, we will once again be forced to take sides. Perhaps this time, the majority opinion will prevail?
