Donald Trump: Savior or Psychopath, you decide....
For this blog post, I am going to make this short and sweet. It continues to sicken me to see the religious continue to deny their own religious convictions to continue praising Trump as a "savior" and God's Gift to Man. So, let's break this down to the bare bones of the argument....
What is a "savior" per the very definition of Christians, themselves? It is someone, Christ, that died for the sins of others. So, when the judge come knocking, Jesus stood up and said...take me, instead. The same Christians that are supporting Trump, now, says a savior is someone that gives personal sacrifice, provides atonement for others, and through the acts of that one in taking their punishment, they are free of their "sin" and made acceptable, despite their past.
Does that sound like ANY part of Trump to you? I am not sure that Trump has EVER admitted being "wrong" about anything, which is a necessary element for salvation per these evangelicals. Has Trump given up ANY of his wealth to the poor, or is he proposing tax CUTS on those rich as he is and tax increases on the poor? Is he suggesting anyone should pay more (sacrifice) so that those without food or healthcare are covered, or he suggesting the reverse? And..sacrifice for OTHERS? It seems to me that Trump has no hint of guilt or loyalty keeping him from throwing ANYONE of his staff or party under the bus, if it suits himself. Rather than he sacrificing himself under scandal so that the GOP party could survive and get things done, he seems determined to burn his own party in Congress for any failures in getting his agenda passed, rather than negotiate with people of opposing positions to find a compromise that everyone likes. It's HIM first...and HIM only.
So, does that kind of personality have a definition?
Pychopath... "a person with a psychopathic personality, which manifests as amoral and antisocial behavior, lack of ability to love or establish meaningful personal relationships, extreme egocentricity, failure to learn from experience, etc." - Dictionary.com
Him... inability to care, anti-social, egocentric (self focused), failure to learn from the experience and CHANGE behavior to work with others. Does that sound like anyone you know? Indeed, there is another word that works, too..
Narcissist - "a person who is overly self-involved, and often vain and selfish. 2. Psychoanalysis. a person who suffers from narcissism, deriving erotic gratification from admiration of his or her own physical or mental attributes." - Dictionary.com
So, rather than someone that exhibits the self sacrificial nature of a savior, we have a narcissistic psychopath (by definition of the words) that instead of giving of himself to save the world would BURN the world to serve himself, much like the mad king that preceded the Game of Thrones stories we see on HBO, today, who screamed.. "burn them all," just as Cersei Lannister was doing to topple her enemies, later, herself. Not like the others in that show are that much better. It is a show about the battle of those who would put to death all who would stand in their way to power, and ... personally... I am one sheep that thinks there are more of us than one cruel shepherd on the THRONE. God help us, till the next election.
