“Trump is sounding insane.”
In my opinion, you are close to correct and he will get worse - a narcissistic personality can’t stand one iota of criticism. He will explode at some point and I hope it happens sooner than later so we can get back to serious candidates who want to save this country.
I’ve already posted this on another thread, but am posting it again for the last time (consider the rest in quotes):
From the DSM V - Personality Disorders
Narcissistic Personality Disorder
Feelings of entitlement; self-centeredness; belief that one is better than others
Excessive attempts to attract and be the focus of the attention of others
As I indicated in post #58, Donald Trump is still an unfinished book to me and although I have an open mind about him, I confess that I do have my doubts about him. That's why I haven't gotten embroiled in the crossfire of the past few months until this thread.
The word you used, serious, resonates with me in this regard. Like President Reagan, I'm an admirer of President Calvin Coolidge. While he had much more of a sense of humor (even somewhat of a prankster when the occasion permitted) than most think, "Silent Cal" was a serious man at his core. He was also a man who carefully and studiously thought through the issues on any matter coming to his attention, as evidenced by his the manner in which he handled the 1919 Boston Police strike. Coolidge was a man of action but not one of snap judgment and was, along with Reagan, the most effective president of the 20th Century.
Trump gives off a different vibe to me, one of impetuousness. And while that very well may be an attribute for success as a casino mogul but it gives me cause for pause should he make it to the Oval Office and be an incautious man with access to the nuclear trigger.
I've also pinged a couple of other FReepers that I respect, GeronL because of our locality and mutual interests as well as nathanbedford because he's a superb historian and possesses a sharp intellect.
