Editor: It is extremely important before Presidentelect Donald Trump takes office that the American people understand that he lives in his own personal reality and fantasy world.
His casual insults of others is explained by psychological projection. He habitually faults other people, frequently those who tell the truth about him. He appears to hate the truth about himself and claims that his problems are really theirs.
When comedian Rosie O’Donnell called him “a snake oil salesman,” he insulted her sexuality, for instance.
He does not like women, which is proved by his admission to victimizing numerous women as if they were not human and had no feelings. When Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg accurately described him as “a faker,” he insulted her by saying, “Her mind is gone.” She still sits on the U.S. Supreme Court and her mind could run circles around his.
His proposed administration is a backward-looking dinosaur of nationalism, protectionism and isolationism that American history has shown repeatedly leads to economic problems, untold suffering and war. There will be no winners from this.
When union leader Chuck Jones recently corrected Mr. Trump’s false statement about the number of jobs saved at Carrier Corp.’s operations in Indiana, he blamed Mr. Jones for jobs leaving this country. It is more likely that Mr. Trump and the politicians he has bought over the decades are the ones most to blame for the millions of good-paying factory jobs leaving America. I want to see a list of all the politicians to whom he has made campaign contributions as he proposes to oversee a nation with a Congress he possibly already has bought.
