I'm surprised he didn't bring along and throw a bunch of baseballs.

Puerto Ricans love baseball. It been belly belly good to them.

The 'oh this is bullshiat' look he gives before tossing it over his shoulder is pretty farking infuriating if you were to see this and oh, I don't know, be dying of dehydration because you don't have access to clean water.
But hey, you might get clocked in the head with a soup can for your troubles, TRUMP LOVES AMARAKA HASHYTHING MAGA!

Mugato: He's clinically insane. It's not even debatable anymore.


He wants the grandeur, the prestige, and the praise.  The details do not matter.  He just wants to appear to be one of the people.  It's not that he is insane so much as the product of an upbringing in the 50's with having lots of money and never hearing the word 'no'.  He is a spoiled rich kid who wants to play Army.  A short temper and a fragile ego do not make him insane.  He is mentally incompetent, possibly due to the lack of exercise and vulgar eating habits.

He's a narcissistic sociopath, but I'm cool with the clinically insane diagnosis.  I really think there should be a psyche eval requirement when someone runs for president.  At the very least, he is mentally unfit.

He is widely known as a rich buffoon in NY social circles, part of the reason he prefers to go to events he hosts. I remember reading about the rich kid social groups in NY and Ivanka was always a bit of a pity case because of his idiocy.

Puerto Ricans complain about the slowness of aid getting to the people then they stop President Trump from delivering aid. Probably wanted those cans for background photo ops for that cry baby mayor.

Everyone leaves the part of the water purification story out where he implies that the person he's talking to is just trying to sell him on their product like it's farking Shark Tank.

"Is this your company or something?" Trump asked the woman, seeming suspicious of the aggressive pitch.
"No," she said, "I'm part of the church."

No, it doesn't change anything. Throwing paper towels around at an aid center full of hurricane victims like it's a party is callous no matter what preposition you choose.

Competent adults capable of empathy don't do that. Period.

He was in Puerto Rico, not Oakland.

He was actually acting out the Las Vegas shooting from the day before, because he believes that both sides have a point. It had to be unconscious, but there you have it.  Freudian bump.

You forgot one word when describing "NY social circles".
Liberal.
Of course they are not going to say anything good about an outsider like Trump.
 
2017-10-06 12:07:37 PM  
I'd have to see the video, I guess.

The crowd seemed to be getting into a good mood with the paper towels, so if he jokingly picked up a heavy can of chicken and pretended like he'd throw it, the crowd could have just as jovially rejected it.

Or maybe he was really going to lob a can of chicken.

Who knows.

"Trump passed out yellow bags of rice and then started tossing rolls of towels into the crowd as if he were shooting free throws. a) The crowd laughed and cheered him on. When he contemplated doing the same with the cans of chicken, b) the crowd gently told him no."

A: Oops, no one told them he was doing something wrong...

B: Gently?  Coulda' fooled me by the tone of this thread...

The problem with "insane" is that its a meaningless term from a clinical standpoint.  It's only relevance is as an affirmative defense to criminal liability.  I'm cool with malignant narcissist or sociopath, but I think the term "insane" should be avoided lest it become his defense to charges of treason.
