PostBiden, Trump, Psychology (Francisco Ramirez, USA, 11/26/20 2:50 pm)
Like David Duggan (November 25th), I also am not a psychologist.
But the list of objective facts in David's second sentence even better characterizes the outgoing president: persistently lies (from "I wanted to serve but my ankle spurs hurt," to "I really won the popular vote in 2016," to all the Covid-related lies). Also, Trump gets aggravated (in person and via Twitter), issues challenges or dares (in person and via Twitter), fakes his appearance (or do you think that is really the color of his hair?), and denies women's truth. (He is being sued by how many women?) Who can out-compete Trump for over-the-top petulance? How else do you explain the post-election sackings?
Trump is a man of sound moral character? You can defend voting for Trump on many grounds. Moral character is not one of them
David, you are right about plagiarism. You have to have read something of value to plagiarize. Biden has apologized for his plagiarizing. As a matter of principle Trump does not apologize. Why should he? The True Believers of the Golden Calf have mastered the art of pretending that he has nothing to apologize for, while declaring that they believe in forgiveness.
Here is an objective fact: We the people have voted, and the Golden Calf will not be in the White House for the next four years. I am not going to offer you Clinton's "I Feel your Pain," but I suspect your post-election posts are driven by the sort of pain that distorts judgment.
JE comments: To clarify, David Duggan has never praised Trump's moral character. Yet by his faint damn of Biden...?
Regardless, today is a day for thankfulness. We are thankful for our safe journey to Somerville, Massachusetts, and our son Martin's home. We'll be here for the next four days. Dinner is now served...
