Psych degree unnecessary

The poet Maya Angelou once wrote: “When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time.”

If we applied this observation to President Donald Trump, we would easily understand the simple reason for his indescribably outrageous behavior for the past 65 years, including his time as president.

In response to a question about his temperament from one of his biographers, Michael D’Antonio, Donald Trump replied:

“When I look at myself in the first grade and I look at myself now, I’m basically the same. The temperament is not that different.”

In grade school, Trump gave a teacher a black eye because in Trump’s words “he did not know what he was talking about.”

As a boy, he said he” just loved to fight…any kind of fight, I loved it, including physical.”

Later, as an adult, Trump said he doesn’t “respect the people he meets in life because most people aren’t worthy of respect.”

Trump has described himself as first grader who never grew up. “Trump-on-Trump” explains a lot about his repetitively crude and shocking behavior.

Trump’s supporters are harder to figure out.

They must have voted for Trump to be the individual with his finger on the “nuclear button” either because they were unaware of his immaturity or they were aware of it, but didn’t think it mattered.

Either they were uninformed or were so “sick-and-tired” of everything, they had high hopes in what he promised: That he and he alone would build a wall for free, make us safe from terrorist attacks, repeal Obamacare, install a new affordable health care system for everyone, modernize our infrastructure, lower middle class taxes, bring back lost high paying manufacturing jobs, “Make America Great Again” and make everybody happy… easily and immediately.
