I cannot help myself. Donald Trump is like a bad girlfriend. Needy, clingy and not that bright. But boy is she good in bed. I know I know, I probably should not have said that, but like I said at the beginning, I couldn’t help myself. And that is the attraction of Trump. he appeals to our baser instincts, even though we know we should stay away, and our friends have warned us, we just cannot help ourselves. I remember a friend of mine who had a girlfriend who was totally unsuitable for him. She was in fact abusive. But he just couldn’t help himself. She was a drug. She was drama incarnate. Just like Trump. Sure she has some key redeeming policies, (see above), but she is otherwise totally and completely bonkers. Sound familiar?
I came across an article from the Daily Telegraph today on certain character traits. (You can read the whole thing here) I have come to the conclusion that Trump really is a psychopath. If you don’t want to read the whole article, see this extract below. I should point out that the article is about having a bad boss, and is nothing to do with Trump. But having read it, you can clearly see where Trump is a fit.
According to Mauri, the traits to look out for include:
- Narcissism: attention-seeking, charm, vanity, and the desire manipulate others.
- Amorality: Immoral thinking, bluntness, money-driven, ultra-competitiveness.
- Antisocial behaviours: thrill-seeking, lack of empathy, knee-jerk reactions
Yup. Sounds like trump to me.
