Repeat lies made Trump president
To the editor:
Kudos to Ms. May & Burgan (who wrote in area papers) on their astute observations of the election of Trump. I concur fully and furthermore have the following contributions.
Joseph Goebbels, Hitler’s propaganda minister, said, “A big lie told often will make the people believe it.” American playwright Sinclair Lewis wrote, “When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.”
What do these statements mean? The rank-and-file of the near-majority of Americans can be swayed and buffaloed. Oftentimes this happens over emotional only snap judgements, unverified information and even well hidden lies. These things I feel are how Trump won.
I supported Bernie Sanders to the end. Some said I was a kook; yet he was the truest candidate with an understandable and unwavering agenda. Things would be sane if he were the president-elect now; don’t you agree?
We are stuck with an unstable, selfish, ego maniac, unless he gets impeached or dies. Perhaps Congress will hobble Trump as they did with Obama, to the point where he was near powerless. (Obstructionist Congress).
Dr. Justin Frank, author and clinical professor of psychiatry, who has found out what makes political leaders “tick” since Nixon, describes Trump as having many mental issues, but mainly narcissism and sociopathy. Narcissists have extremely high egos and self images. They have no empathy or sympathy for others. They feel entitled and they feel they can do no wrong.
Sociopaths are dangerous. They stop at nothing to get what they want. They feel they are above any rules or laws. They can be intelligent; however, they use it for evil purposes.
Their motto is: Nothing is ever enough. If he is truly as filthy rich as he claims and flaunts, why take a job that pays $450,000 annually?
