Why Trump Hating Asshats Are Do Nothings

This. Read this “article”. It will take less than 10 seconds because it isn’t an article, it’s a 5am tweet. It’s less coherent than the stream-of-angst from the president of the United States of America. This is clickbait:

Why are the liberals completely overreacting to Trump’s unique style of governing?

They’re not. He’s a fucking sociopath. And here’s a recipe for raspberry scones:


The rest is a scone recipe. Literally. 

This kind of internet segue is a sign of the interrelational quagmire we find ourselves wherein discourse has been replaced by one-offs. Trump is “a fucking sociopath”—why? Cite one example, there’s lots to choose from, so it’s not that hard—it’s just lazy not to choose an example then breakdown why it makes Trump a sociopath. Here, from the NYT transcript of the president’s hour and fifteen minute press conference:

I will not back down from defending our country. I got elected on defense of our country. I keep my campaign promises, and our citizens will be very happy when they see the result. They already are, I can tell you that. Extreme vetting will be put in place and it already is in place in many places.


Excepting that a true sociopath has extreme anti-social tendencies and that Trump is almost the opposite of that (as narcissists are extroverts), the other trait of a true sociopath is a lack of conscience. Trump made so many campaign promises trying to be everything to his wide, but mostly white voter base, that’s it’s improbable that he could keep all his campaign promises even if he intended to. Stuff like releasing his tax returns and making Mexico pay for its new border wall (here Time has a nice pre-election round-up of seven campaign promises Trump would be unlikely to keep). Trump has repeatedly dismissed these two things and clearly doesn’t care that folks don’t like that. He does have to care because the law can’t force him to keep his campaign promises and neither can “the people”. 

He is in office and is doing whatever he pleases which mostly includes chastising his political opponents, the press, the intelligence community, liberals, and SNL. 

This isn’t a hard thing to write about. It takes a few extra minutes to focus one’s thoughts, to find a few links, and Jenga a post together that has some substance beyond a bar one-liner. 

And, Ddong Today disagrees with the “he’s a sociopath” armchair analysis. It doesn’t really matter what the psychological makeup of the 45th president is—focusing on that is yet another distraction from the core issues. Like, he is already in office and fucking shit up with his cohort of hate. They’re all off-kilt in some way … then again, so are a lot of regular folks, so again, it doesn’t matter what Trump is, it’s what he’s doing and how we talk about this shit that actually matters.
