With severe narcissistic personality disorder, can Trump's body survive all the negative press?

Evidently narcissistic people have very low self-esteem and they need constant positive reinforcement and attention. Will having the world focused on him and him being nothing but a big fucking joke cause his brain to short circuit so badly he will sooner rather than later kick the bucket?

In just one year he seems to have aged about 5 or more years mentally and he seems to be losing touch with reality more and more every month. I am not sure he can sustain much more of this. The scary thing is, the more out of touch he becomes the more dangerous he becomes to the world.


My latest book launches March 1st.

It's available for pre-order on Amazon right now. https://www.amazon.com/Paisley-Rabbit-Treehouse-Contest-Richardson/dp/097864221X

Can a lone girl rabbit with the odds stacked against her surprise Jimmy and the other animals to win the big treehouse construction contest? When the school year starts out, Jimmy Squirrel, whose dad owns the biggest construction company in the city, challenges a close group of friends to a treehouse contest. To everyone's surprise, Paisley Rabbit, who has never touched a hammer or a nail and has no one to help her, joins the contest as a long shot to win. But as things heat up, Paisley shows she has some tricks up her sleeve. A delightful tale of defying the odds and believing in yourself that, alongside playful illustrations, kids will want to read over and over.

Sanders aid warned Clinton of Russian attacks on her campaign through his FB page

Somehow this article is usually used against Sanders suggesting he did nothing about the Russian attacks but if you read the entire article it appears Sanders folks DID warn Hillary of what they were noticing:


On Tuesday, Sanders described one spike in anti-Clinton sentiment that he attributed to the Russian campaign. In September 2016, an aide noticed hundreds of “new names” appearing on pro-Sanders Facebook pages to denigrate Clinton and her candidacy — despite the fact Sanders himself was campaigning on her behalf during that same period.

The influx of social media trolls was alarming enough that the aide approached the Clinton campaign to inform them of the situation, Sanders said.

Are there already state charges against Manafort and Gates?

Can someone direct me to those charges if they already exist? Evidently those are the key to nailing Trump and not allowing them to be pardoned. Is this why they are looking into Manafort’s New York property loans? Can some of the charges be pivoted and brought about by the state rather than by the Feds? Is that the strategy? Law is not something I know squat about. Thanks

Blue Wave Coming? Democrat Upsets Trump District In HISTORIC Swing

NYPD hit their target only 18% of the time. Avoiding hitting innocent bystanders not that easy

Note: This article is from 2013 but there is nothing to indicate their accuracy has gone up since then.

Ready, Fire, Aim: The Science Behind Police Shooting Bystanders
A Saturday incident in Times Square showed yet again that even highly trained police are not always accurate marksmen

Snip> On Saturday night in New York City’s Times Square, police opened fire on a man who was walking erratically into oncoming traffic and, when approached by law enforcement, reached into his pocket as if he were grabbing a weapon. The officers fired three shots. One hit a 54-year-old woman in the knee and another grazed a 35-year-old woman’s buttocks. None hit the suspect, whom police subsequently subdued with a taser.

Snip> According to a 2008 RAND Corporation study evaluating the New York Police Department’s firearm training, between 1998 and 2006, the average hit rate during gunfights was just 18 percent. When suspects did not return fire, police officers hit their targets 30 percent of the time.

Snip> The data show what any police officer who has ever been involved in a shooting can tell you–firing accurately in a stressful situation is extremely hard.

Cameras captured list of five pointers Trump held for listening session with Parkland kids


At a “listening session” with victims of gun violence on Wednesday, President Donald Trump needed a reminder to listen.

We know this because Trump ― or one of his advisers ― helpfully wrote it down on a cheat sheet he carried into the meeting.

Cameras captured the list of five pointers while Trump held it in his hands during the session. Point No. 5 on the list reads, simply, “I hear you.”

In the president’s defense, it’s not unusual to bring notes to a meeting. But to need a reminder to let gun violence survivors know you’re listening to them, while at a “listening session” organized for that explicit purpose is ... well, very on-brand for Trump.

The guest list for Wednesday’s session included students and families affected by last week’s shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida, that killed 17 people. It was an emotional affair, as survivors of gun violence recalled lost siblings, frequently struggling to hold back tears.
