One thing I’ve been noticing people say is things that make it seem like Trump is uniquely arrogant, or uniquely power hungry or controlling. The short answer to this is: he isn’t. Every politician is just as arrogant, power hungry and controlling, they just prefer to pretend they don’t possess those qualities to fool you into voting for them.
Let me repeat that for you in a different way: There is nothing unique about any of the characteristics you don’t like about trump in a politician or public figure. I know, its preferable to believe that the “orange cheeto” is uniquely bad in the area of politics, but the only reason Trump is so jarring to your sense of reality is because he doesn’t try to pretend to be someone he is not.
He’s a brash, rude, self-centered egomaniac and he’s upfront and honest about it.
He’s a sociopath that doesn’t hide his tendencies.
So is almost every single politician that has ever run for president or a position of power, locally or nationally.
Sorry kids, you’ve been dealing with Trumps your whole life, you just didn’t pay attention until it was in your face.
You don’t believe it? Well then get comfortable, you’re going to continue swimming in sociopaths until you stop pretending the one who doesn’t hide his nature is harming you more than the ones hiding in the shadows.
