The Right Fit for Trump

This letter may raise some eyebrows or may not. In an interview with CBS news chief Major Garrett, ghost writer Tony Schwartz said “writing the book, “The Art of the Deal,” for Donald Trump was the greatest regret of his life.” Schwartz, as the author, got to know Trump personally. Schwartz mentioned “Trump is not only willing to lie but doesn’t get bothered by it, doesn’t feel guilty about it. There’s an emptiness inside Trump, an absence of soul, of heart.”

On national TV Schwartz called Trump a sociopath. I was curious. I googled sociopath. It’s a person with a personality disorder manifesting itself in extreme antisocial attitudes and behavior lacking a conscience. A sociopath’s profile: 1. Glibness. 2. Manipulative ( they never recognize the rights of others and see their self-serving behavior as permissible ); they are cons ( Trump University scam comes to mind ). 3. Grandiose sense of self ( as evidenced by Trump’s egomania ). 4. Pathological lying( Factcheck’s count of Trump’s lies from his 2016 Presidential campaign up to now is 10,000 and still mounting ). 5. Lack of remorse, shame or guilt. 6. Lack of empathy. 7. Impulsive nature( Trump’s rash actions based on gut instinct without thinking them through ). 8. Early behavior problems/juvenile delinquency( Trump’s father sent him to the NY Military Academy prep school at Cornwall-on-Hudson ). They usually have a history of behavioral and academic difficulties yet “get by” by conning others; aberrant behavior is exhibited such as cruelty to people, stealing. 9. Irresponsibility. They don’t accept blame for their misdeeds but blame others.

Does any of this look or sound familiar ? It certainly does to me ! My conclusion: If the shoe fits, wear it. It unquestionably is the right size for Trump !
