Tell me about your father.

Was he there for you? Kind, loving, patient, and wise?

Are there things you've always wanted to say to him, but can't? Why not? Are you scared that he might get mad or disapprove of you? Did he ever tell you how proud he was of you, just because you're you?

Here's a whacky, psycho-babbling theory: People who support President Trump have daddy issues. They grew up having to tolerate an overbearing, emotionally unavailable, self-centered, scary, manipulative , egomaniacal, unfair, tyrannical, abusive, disrespectful, narcissistic , and/or all-of-the-above kind of guy.

That was daddy.

And here comes Trump, not exactly the character type that mature people would hope for in the leader of the free world. Yet, a shocking, mind-boggling number of people put their trust in this half-witted, criminally-minded, would-be superhero. Why?

There can only be one answer, according to this half-baked post.

Here it is:

People who put their trust in Trump were forced to emotionally sell out a long time ago to a man who taught them that immature men are the norm. When they look to a male role model, they're willing to settle for something awful. In fact, they may not even be comfortable getting behind a mature, healthy and balanced leader.

Stick with the devil you know, as the saying goes.

To the rest of us, the Trump experience is indeed painful. We would no sooner elect a man like that than shoot ourselves in the foot. We can see so clearly that this guy is not only unfit for office but dangerous to America and the world.

But what if you're so used to horrible leadership in your life (daddy) that an insane President is just par for the course?

Oh, I'm sure he knows what he's doing.

He's rich and successful, so he can make America the same.

These are the thoughts of emotional children who can't seem fathom what a mature adult acts like.

Have we had any emotionally mature Presidents? I'll leave that one for another time. Let's end with a question:

What kind of people elect a President like Trump?
