  • Egocentricity and Malignant Narcissism Run Wild

    'I am the chosen one.'

    The comment sounds like it comes from the Mahdi in the Sudan during Chinese Gordon's time.

    In short, this is nuts.

    'President Donald Trump on Wednesday declared himself "the chosen one" as he defended his administration's actions in the ongoing U.S.-China trade war.'

    'The president's self-aggrandizing remark followed a string of criticisms aimed at his predecessors, whom he claimed had ignored China's alleged malpractice on trade.'

    '"This isn't my trade war, this is a trade war that should have taken place a long time ago," Trump told reporters outside the White House.'

    '"Someone had to do it," the president said. He added, while looking to the sky: "I am the chosen one."'

    'Earlier Wednesday, Trump retweeted a right-wing pundit's flattering, messiah-flavored comments about the president's support in Israel.'

    '"The Jewish people in Israel love him like he's the King of Israel. They love him like he is the second coming of God," said that supporter, Wayne Allyn Root.'

    'The Trump administration is gearing up to slap new tariffs on billions of dollars' worth of Chinese imports. Trump has already imposed 25% tariffs on roughly $250 billion in Chinese goods, and has vowed to apply 10% duties to about all remaining Chinese imports by mid-December.'

    'Some of those tariffs will go into effect Sept. 1, while other were recently delayed until Dec. 15 to avoid harming U.S. consumers during the holiday season.'

    'Beijing has retaliated by taxing about $110 billion in U.S. imports, and more recently by announcing that it would no longer buy U.S. agriculture products.'

    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
    Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
    To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

      And more evidence of terminal stupidity on Trump's part-talk about a slippery slope...

      'U.S. President Donald Trump said on Wednesday that his administration was seriously looking at ending the right of citizenship for U.S.-born children of noncitizens and people who immigrated to the United States illegally.'

        and people who immigrated to the United States illegally.'[

        How is it stupid to not grant citizenship to illegal immigrants?
        "I don't discuss sitting presidents," Mattis tells NPR in an interview. "I believe that you owe a period of quiet."

          Given that outside the Americas, no countries offer birthright citizenship. Not a single European country does. No Arab countries do. None in Asia do. Trump's position is a reasonable one on this argument. It doesn't mean it's the one the US has to accept or use, but it isn't "...evidence of terminal stupidity..." either.

              Do you actually understand what birthright citizenship is? It is for people who are born in the United States, no matter who their parents are. That isn't granting citizenship to illegal immigrants.

              It is really unfathomable that you don't know the difference.

                I clearly said and quoted from the OP regarding illegal immigrants. Those do not rate birthright citizenship.

                Stop making this personal.

                  So, you think it's a great idea to allow someone to commit a crime and illegally enter the US, plop a kid down and that child becomes a US citizen automatically simply because of where they were born even though their parent(s) were in the middle of committing a criminal act?

                  https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/...rong/24887837/

                  Is this the intended purpose of birthright citizenship?

                  These are people gaming the system for personal gain.

                  I say a pox on them all and end this nonsense!

                    Unfortunately, you achieved that dubious goal some time ago.
