I’m glad the election’s over, though not happy with the outcome. I worry about how the President will handle the defeat. It’s my belief that his mental stability is fragile, and that he suffers from delusions of grandeur and invulnerability. His language is egocentric and reflects a dysfunctional thought process. For example:
“I aim to be a competitive nation.”
“I’m the decider, and I decide what is best.”
“See, in my line of work you got to keep repeating things over and over and over again for the truth to sink in, to kind of catapult the propaganda.”
“It’s in our country’s interests to find those who would do harm to us and get them out of harm’s way.”
“I want to thank all my citizens.”
After six years of doing whatever he wants regardless of the consequences, and with no evidence of an ability to admit mistakes or express remorse, the President is now confronted with the fact that the American People have rejected him. We hired him as our CEO in 2000, and he has proceeded to drive our business (our country) into the ground. And now the Board of Directors (the electorate) has put him on notice that they’re not satisfied with his performance. Most likely this is the first serious rebuke in his political life. Let us all hold him in the light, for our own and the world’s sake. Let us hope that those close to him are able to act in the best interests of all of us.
