(The Daily Beast)   Donald Trump does not want you to know about the time he watched an octogenarian fall head first and bleed all over his ballroom's pristine marble floor, but only because blood makes him squeamish   ( thedailybeast.com) divider line

Trump, a notorious germaphobe, is discussing his extreme distaste for blood. The mere sight of it, he says, causes him to recoil in disgust. Perhaps it explains why he accused then Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly of having her period after she asked him a tough question during a presidential debate, or why he sought multiple deferments to dodge the Vietnam War

Sure, distaste for blood and not just laziness and craven cowardice.


he's bleeding all over the place, I felt terrible. You know, beautiful marble floor

Gonna have to disagree with you on that one.  He has a hungering for blood, but doesn't want to see it.  Probably why he likes his steaks crunchy.

Put away your knives for a moment and consider the human side of this story.

Some people don't react well to a traumatic situation: more so if they have a phobia.  You know: fight or flight.  Looks the Don has a fear of blood.  Remembering the contrast of a pristine clean marble floor to all the blood is not psychotic in any way but rather how the scene was imprinted in his memory. He, in fact, expresses his feelings of anger at the other guests for turning away and not helping, pride and awe for the marines that were able to deal with blood that was everywhere, but mostly guilt and remorse for not having the courage to help.

He seems to harbor a little anger and guilt about the event rather than taking pride in its telling.

Not placing a call to check on the guest: he could have been busy but the feeling of guilt for not helping could have just as easily been a mitigating factor.

Being a couple of guys of course he's going say something like checking in on the guest just wasn't his thing to cover that moment of weakness.

Also consider the source of the reporting and the bias it contains.

This could have easily ended up on  Dr Phil as some sort of personal confession and had every member in the audience in tears over the burden of guilt this man has been carrying for years.

Ok, you can pick up your knives again.

Different type of phobia?  In Asia they wear masks to not spread disease.  Hollywood fashion?  Surgical masks were all the rage in Japan for those hitting the night club scene.

Besides.  Michael Jackson.  No explaining that level of wierd.

Trump is more of a Chaos person, but not Chaos Unified. No worthy of Khorne would run away from blood ("Blood for the Blood God! Skulls for the Skull Throne!") and Khornate Warriors fight in an honorable manner without use of trickery or blatant spamming of sorcery (other than the summoning of Khornate demons).
He's more of a Slaneeshi-type to me. The overbearing, pompous, arrogant, egotistical, narcissistic attitude of an Emperor's Children. The eardrum-bleeding screams of a Kakaphoni Noise Marine. The looks of a Fabius Bile experiment gone wrong (or an Slaneeshi Demon Prince/Champion of Chaos). The same vulgar, nauseating, and obscene taste that the Emperor's Children consider high class perfection in art and music and food. A sense of entitlement and hypocrisy when it comes to moral and ethical values. Grab them by the pussy? I'd date my own daughter? Same sexual perversions.
In the grimdark future that is 40K, Donald Trump is the geneseed of the Emperor's Children. We are all doomed.

Someone up thread mentioned the blood and his relationship to women.  That got me thinking... would a tampon would be an effective Trump repellant?I wonder if it has to actually be used or if the vampire, I mean the beast, just has to think it's real.  Maybe just dipping one in red paint would work. 
We should try it.  Hold three tampons up in front of the beast and see which ones cause him to hiss and recoil in horror the most.If that works would the blood of a virgin melt him?Just thinking out loud.

Shhhh children, the Fark Kinky NurseTM will explain it all.

About 15% of the population experiences a sudden rise then a plunge in blood pressure when they see blood, which will cause them to feel faint or actually pass out at the sight of the stuff.  It's called blood-injury phobia and the physical response to it is called a vasovagal response.  The vagus nerve that runs the length of the body also is responsible for people who faint when they poop, ala Elvis style death.

Lots of normalizing of the toad today.

The point is that the toad went onto a shock jock's show, because he could count on having his ass kissed, and told this tone-deaf story, imagining that he was being cool and funny and charming. Saying that he turned his back on somebody he assumed had been mortally injured. Not a hint of regret or embarrassment or "I wish I'd done better." Just a tone of, "Wasn't that cool of me? Isn't that a great story? Doesn't it make you wish you were me?"

And what this reveals about what kind of leader he makes, how he behaves talking with other leaders, when he's not roughly shoving them out of the way so he can waddle in front of the camera.

You can pick up your rose-tinted normalizing glasses now.

It's almost like this story could be an analog for what's happening in Puerto Rico. An at-risk entity suffers a potentially fatal event, he turns his back on he humanitarian aspect and marvels at the damage done to shiny, elite, status symbols. The people at the back of his mind rush to help...

When I was 9 or 10 I was staying with my grandparents and I'd been given a list of chores I needed to get done by the end of the day. So, of course, I spent the day swimming in the river and playing around instead of doing the chores. I also put some thought into coming up with excuses for why I didn't do the chores. When dinner time came around and my grandfather wanted to know why they weren't done, I had a great story full of reasonsthat just happened to mean that I couldn't do any of the chores.

My grandfather didn't waste time picking apart my story. He didn't question each part and get me to admit that it didn't happen. Instead, he marveled at how lucky I was that there were so many random coincidences that just happened to mean that I could spend the day playing instead of doing the things I'd been responsible for. And wasn't it incredible the way fate lined up so that I could do exactly what I wanted.

Yes, it's possible that there are just a bunch of things that happened to line up to make Trump look like a self absorbed, uncaring jackass. Isn't it incredible the way that fate conspired once again make Trump look like he cares only about himself and his own image. Surely it's unrelated to any other time that happened.

Don't think it story in question ever said that he passed out, more that he was disgusted by the fact that the other man's blood was marking up his pristine marble floor.

Not mocking a condition, just pointing out that Trump cared more for an inanimate object than a human being.

I imagine that Stern and Trump in the same county, let alone room, is like taking two large grape-fruit halves of Plutonium and banging them together to make the clop-clop sound of a horse's hooves on gold brick pavement. The concentrated toxicity, malice, stupidity and ego is way way worse than the risk of a nuclear chain reaction.

Yeah, you are both right. He is not a classic germophobe. He is just a giant wussy.

He will shake hands with anybody rich or famous or both, provided they massage his ego shamelessly. He is not afraid of germs, just catching fat, poverty or the ghays. They are contagious you know. You catch fat from eating with fat friends, the same way you catch biatchiness from eating with skinny-ass friends. Poverty is contagious, so you should always pay the high price of associating with people who are too rich for your budget. And the ghayz are so contagious you can catch if from you wife after she gets her hair done.

TheDreadChefRoberts: Do they have a humanities category for the IgNobel prize?

I know the IgNobels well. I even have their email address. If you want, I can recommend Trump for a Peace Prize, an Economics Prize, or a Prize for something like Medicine. They do not have an Arts or Humanities category per se, but it could be argued he has done more for taking medicine back to the Dark Ages than leaching, bleeding, and three different kinds of purges combined.

The Economics IgNobel Prize is not a real science prize, but then again, neither is the Economics Nobel Prize. It is given by the Norwegians and not the Swedes. Properly it is not formally called the Nobel Prize. It is like a Nobel Prize but not quite the real thing. Economics is not a real science. It is not a hard science, it is barely a soft science. It is like giving a Nobel prize in voodoo. Although economists seem to like it and to think highly of themselves and their friends when they receive it.
