Trump Likes to Create Chaos So He Feels Like He's in Control

We've seen this time and time again--when Trump's not the center of attention, he does something truly awful to redirect the spotlight back to himself. The DACA debacle is only the most recent iteration.

2. He doesn't even mind if he gets negative attention

He could piss someone off to the point they're pounding him into the ground, and he'd declare WINNING! because he controlled the situation to the point of getting himself pounded into the ground....

5. Chaos, Control, and no regrets.

I just read an article that describes tRump to a tee. "The Dark Triad is an immoral trifecta of personality traits that result in immense personal power." He's controlling us so we focus on that which is Urgent and Important so we loose the long game. We're being bamboozled by all of the "crap on the lawn", so to speak, so we miss the real objective of the administration.

[link:https://illimitablemen.com/2013/11/17/understanding-the-dark-triad/|

Their whole goal is TO STAY IN POWER, by swaying, if not cheating our election process. They have lots of tools at their disposal: Cross Check , voter intimidation, voter ID laws, cutting earlier voting times, gerrymandering​, equipment shortages and "failures​", social media targeted ad campaigns​, etc., some legal, some not, but all together, a winning strategy. And right now, they're getting away with it.

Come next November, we have to keep them from winning/ stealing the election, or what has happened so far will look great compared to the wickedness than can be wrought !!

6. I remember reading an article...

...in certain mental illness, can't remember which, if there is chaos all around them, they feel "normal". If there is no chaos, they panic and look for ways to cause chaos.

7. Con men create distractions

While you're dealing with the fire he started, Trump filches the valuables.

8. To feel powerful, not merely in control.

Perverse pleasure in causing pain to others by denying them exactly what they most want or need.
