Makes Sense

Yale psychiatrist explains how devotion to Trump is based on
emotional patterns most people grow out of by age five.

angry-trump-supporter-shutterstockRaw Story spoke with Yale psychiatry professor Bandy X. Lee on why the president’s supporters show such undying devotion to a man who’s repeatedly reneged on promises and whose tumultuous first term has been filled with shake-ups.

Bandy X. Lee: The sense of grandiose omnipotence that he displays seems especially appealing to his emotionally-needy followers. No matter what the world says, he fights back against criticism, continues to lie in the face of truth, and above all is still president. What matters is that he is winning, not whether he is honest or law-abiding. This may seem puzzling to the rest of us, but when you are overcome with feelings of powerlessness, this type of cartoonish, exaggerated force is often more important than true ability. This is the more primitive morality, as we call it, of “might makes right,” which in normal development you grow out of by age five.

What a defense!

The Trump name will now and forever be compared to Adolf Hitler. I believe this will severely devalue the Trump brand, reducing the Trump fortune to about a buck ninety-eight.

I’m sure Melania will help the old man move into a used mobile home in Florida so they can live out their retirement blaming others and whining about how unfair life is.

Assuming, of course, that he’s not in the slam doing twenty to life.
