I know I'm in the minority about the "you better not hope there are tapes" threat

but when I first saw Cheeto Baby Blabbermouth Baby's tweet I took it to mean that Cheeto was warning Comey not to release information that COMEY might have taped. I still believe it's the only interpretation that makes sense.

Let's face it... Cheeto knew that Comey never said anything incriminating to himself, but Cheeto also knew that that's exactly what HE had done. Already paranoid about Obama having surveiled him, this was just another extension of his paranoia. Fearful about the consequences of his own criminal mouth he was threatening Comey with prosecution if there tapes not pre-approved for the conversation. The threat would have made no sense to Comey at all otherwise.

Frankly, I don't understand how the threat could have been so widely misinterpreted. ???

2. You're expecting normal behavior from a narcissist.

Everyone on DU needs to learn all they can about narcissistic personality disorder. I've known two people who had it, and it is clear to me that Trump has it in spades.

https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/communication-success/201608/8-common-narcissist-lies

Narcissists are pathological liars. They lie to manipulate. They bluff to get what they want. It's very hard to recognize their lies because they lie even when they don't have to, when normal people wouldn't even think to lie.

I am certain there are no tapes. The comment about tapes was a bluff intended to make sure that Comey would keep quiet.

7. Yep, and interpreting their behavior from a normal

perspective is an equal waste of time. Underlying any personality disorder is a skewed world view. You have to understand that view before you can interpret their behavior. Twitler believes it's attack or be attacked and that everybody else believes the same thing. He is constantly at war with the world and everyone in it. Power and money, especially money, are the only things that make him feel safe. Which is how he got himself in the pickle he is in with the Russian mob. Money is so important it didn't matter where it came from. He's like a junkie.

3. Funny, I read it the same way as you at first

and then thought it made more sense when understanding it the way everyone else took it.

5. I thought exactly the same thing. He seemed to be warning Comey not to release any taping.

6. What does "the only interpretation that makes sense" have to do with anything?
