Well, judging by the friends he keeps...he's a total disaster. To use one if his favorite words.


Entering the orbit of a 'total narcissist': who's who in Donald Trump's inner circle | US news | The Guardian

From his career in New York real estate to his extraordinary campaign for the White House, the court of Donald Trump has operated much like that of Louis XIV of France: everything revolves around the imperious, bouffanted Sun King.

“He is a total narcissist, and what you see here is the way he’s always been,” said a source . . .


Tyson [yeah, that Tyson] has been a firm friend since Trump assisted him through his trial, conviction and jailing in 1992 for the rape of a teenage beauty pageant contestant. Trump had hosted Tyson’s fights at his casinos and was seeking a closer business partnership. “We’re the same guy,” Tyson explained earlier this year.

“A thrust for power, a drive for power. Whatever field we’re in, we need power in that field. That’s just who we are.”

Wow, Trump, the new boogeyman. Funny, no matter how he's defamed by the prattle of his detractors, we're still voting for him.

Here's a clue, those who rant the loudest against him, try their darnedest to make him seem unelectable, including spending mega dollars to paint him in a bad light, those are the folks we're voting against when we vote for Trump.

I don't think Trump is any more narcissistic than Obama - he's just more flamboyant about it. I do think that Trump would be as big a disaster as Obama.

"Just who exactly is Donald Trump?"

A narcissistic lunatic who will say whatever he has to as a means to insult opposition while angering others into supporting him. His behavior tops even Nancy Pelosi in divisiveness, uselessness, and the absolute worst politics has to offer.

U sure you're not just showing your "dark" side ?
Why don't you be a bit more specific? What specifically has he done to anger you? Maybe you're Muslim?

I do not have to be Muslim to be concerned about Trump's comments about Muslims (or immigrants, or Mexicans, etc.)

Concerned about his comments or how they've been interpreted by his opposition? The latter seems to be the case.

I have that right, and when looking over the response from not just this nation but also our allies I am in the majority here on being very concerned about Trump's "solutions" to various immigration and refugee problems.

So, you feel we should just let anyone and everyone who decides to make America their home just come here at will. No vetting process, no conditions?

Or are you only wanting that provision for Muslims? I believe you are Muslim.

The establishment is "extremely" concerned about Trump.
I'm "extremely" concerned about the establishment as ALL Americans should be because even if they are part of it or benefiting from it, it is destroying the foundation of freedom on which it grew.

I did not say that, nor do I have to. And if you think I am Muslim then you really need your head examined.

We can be concerned about Trump's comments without being a Muslim, or a Mexican, or an immigrant of any kind.

Why would I need my head examined? Are you saying there is something wrong with Muslims, or with you? Honestly a bit confused.
How do you feel about White Men in general?

You still never specifically stated what things Trump said that you feel are inappropriate and why.

I don't think OS is a muslim and no there's nothing wrong in choosing to be muslim. The anti-Trumpeteers have chosen to pick up the left's insane interpretations of what Trump says where ordinarily they would be calling them out. It suits their current purpose - opposing the fellow who isn't their chosen candidate.

Ok. I haven't read enough of his posts to know that.
I hope he hasn't bought into the nonsense that ALL white men (or people) are bad or that ALL Conservatives are whatever (good or bad).
We (the American People) have been carefully and systematically divided by the establishment. Most of us basically want the same thing in my opinion.

The establishment thrives on division because if the American people ever united it would quickly be the end of the establishment that holds us ALL down.

I hope OS can see that and isn't so hypnotized by the lies that he can't see beyond it all.
