  • The Root of Trumps problems and why he should not be elected.

    From Trumps Art of the Deal

    "When someone crosses you, my advice is 'Get Even!' That is not typical advice, but it is real life advice. If you do not get even, you are just a schmuck! When people wrong you, go after those people because it is a good feeling and because other people will see you doing it. I love getting even."
    This why a Presidential candidate can't seem to ignore all the little things going on in the campaign and concentrate on well, winning. The Khan family? Either ignore, the smartest thing, or:

    Simply state he felt moved by their son's actions and he is sorry for their loss. However he stands by his policy on immigration.

    The speech would have faded into oblivion.

    However I don't think the man is capable of doing that, which is a scary thing if he were the President. Doesn't matter if it's a domestic issue or a foreign policy area. The man can't handle public criticism. Simple as that.

    Of cabbages—and kings—
    And why the sea is boiling hot—
    And whether pigs have wings.”

      Simple fact on the make up off the candidates CURRENT and Future personality. His actions this entire campaign simply confirm it. So it's a current issue not a past one.

        I suppose falling behind or losing is better than getting even... And turning the other cheek is certainly a lot nicer than getting even...

        Show of hands: How many Trump supporters plan to vote for him because he's polite? A nice guy? A gentleman?

          I agree. It's just ironic that the font of "goes back how far for this one?" rebuttals would base a thread on a quote from a ~30 year old book...

          Trump is not inclined to take schist from people... Good? Bad? I'm gonna lean toward good.

                And it seems Trump defines 'screwed over' as anything that he does not like. That's the problem

                Oh, I have no problem believing that his core supporters don't mind this personality trait. However it will not help win the actual election and it will be a disaster if he ever takes office.

                  He he could channel the inclination so that it only kicks in when an ACTUAL issue arises, yes.

                    Even in context, what Trump said wasn't "nice." I don't expect him to say nice things now. I certainly don't doubt that he said a lot of ugly things back in the 80's. He's not Jesus, for Cripe's sake. He doesn't have an obligation to "turn the other cheek" when crossed.

                      Let's hope he'll mature a bit between now and the first time he has to deal with actual issues.

                        This particular personality trait was the only thing I liked about Trump when I voted for Rubio in the Texas primary...

                          Donald Trump did not write The Art of the Deal. He's incapable of such a task. The ghostwriter of said book, Tony Schwartz, wrote the book while observing Trump on the job. What he saw was not nice and he really had to embellish Trump to make him likeable to readers.

                          “I put lipstick on a pig,” he said. “I feel a deep sense of remorse that I contributed to presenting Trump in a way that brought him wider attention and made him more appealing than he is.” He went on, “I genuinely believe that if Trump wins and gets the nuclear codes there is an excellent possibility it will lead to the end of civilization.”

                          ...

                          If he were writing “The Art of the Deal” today, Schwartz said, it would be a very different book with a very different title. Asked what he would call it, he answered, “The Sociopath.”

                          ...

                          “Trump has been written about a thousand ways from Sunday, but this fundamental aspect of who he is doesn’t seem to be fully understood,” Schwartz told me. “It’s implicit in a lot of what people write, but it’s never explicit—or, at least, I haven’t seen it. And that is that it’s impossible to keep him focussed on any topic, other than his own self-aggrandizement, for more than a few minutes, and even then . . . ” Schwartz trailed off, shaking his head in amazement.

                          ...

                          This year, Schwartz has heard some argue that there must be a more thoughtful and nuanced version of Donald Trump that he is keeping in reserve for after the campaign. “There isn’t,” Schwartz insists. “There is no private Trump.” This is not a matter of hindsight. While working on “The Art of the Deal,” Schwartz kept a journal in which he expressed his amazement at Trump’s personality, writing that Trump seemed driven entirely by a need for public attention. “All he is is ‘stomp, stomp, stomp’—recognition from outside, bigger, more, a whole series of things that go nowhere in particular,” he observed, on October 21, 1986. But, as he noted in the journal a few days later, “the book will be far more successful if Trump is a sympathetic character—even weirdly sympathetic—than if he is just hateful or, worse yet, a one-dimensional blowhard.”

                              Schwartz is wrong about one thing: Trump as sociopath. Trump has a mountain of negatives, but he's not a sociopath.
