'But what do you do if that pathological narcissist is the president of the U.S.? There was an understandable reluctance to say so; But the case of Trump has forced a radical departure from precedent. Mental health professionals have sounded the alarm about Trump’s stability — most notably this forensic psychiatrist at Yale and editor of “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump! Writers have discussed his narcissism  openly; so have administration officials , in private . Now,  many have reached a consensus: We are being governed by a man with a narcissistic personality disorder, almost certainly of the malignant variety, and it’s time to call it by name.'  Even Fox News, the in-house organ  of the executive branch, has begun to buckle  under the strain of covering such an impossible personality, and Trump has started to howl in return.' Disloyal to the king!'

Remember, dear reader, what every teacher and playwright knows (and I am both) BEHAVIOR IS ALL! BEHAVIOR DEFINES US ALL!


Because he has this view that anything he thinks is wonderful, 'perfect' he puts us in danger... Look at this 'chummy' letter that he imagined was going to work with Erdogan.

Read Trump's strange letter to Turkey's Erdogan: "Don't be a tough guy. Don't be a fool."

So convinced of his astonishing ability to 'deal' with the mess ( which he created in A TWEET) that he handed out the letter, at a Congressional meeting -- first reported by the Fox Business Network and confirmed by the White House! He was so proud, at this apparent attempt to highlight his toughnessin handling Erdogan, one source told an Associated Press reporter.

"Dear Mr. President," Trump wrote in the letter. "Let's work out a good deal! You don't want to be responsible for slaughtering thousands of people, and I don't want to be responsible for destroying the Turkish economy"... "I have worked hard to solve some of your problems. Don't let the world down. You can make a great deal." (He actually suggested the Kurdish forces would make a deal with Erdogan.)


He concluded --to this man whom he imagined was greatful for handing him over the Kurds: "History will look upon you favorably if you get this done the right and humane way. It will look upon you forever as the devil if good things don't happen. Don't be a tough guy. Don't be a fool!

I will call you later. "

"Sincerely, Donald Trump"


The letter was dated Oct. 9, three days after Trump tweeted that he would remove U.S. forces from northern Syriaand therefore leave the country's Kurdish allies vulnerableand the same day Turkey launched its attack against the Kurds.


Come on friends... We needed to find a way to leave this 'senseless' war...but not by abandoning the very . soldiers who helped us eradicate the Caliphate, and almost end Isis...Almost....
