- Frequent bullying: sent bodyguard to intimidate doctor to get original medical files
- Implements harsh management tactics: mocks and threatens American institutions: Democratic Party, Judicial Courts, Intelligence agencies, FBI, and calls the media the "Enemy of the People"
- Interpersonal manipulation; use of flattery or deceit: "very fine people on both sides."
- Lack of empathy: Charlottesville
As Nancy MacLean, an American historian and Duke University professor, wrote in the last paragraph of her stunning book, Democracy In Chains, "Is this the country we want to live in and bequeath to our children and future generations? " If we delay much longer, those who are imposing their stark utopia will choose for us."
If we don't choose the country we want to live in and act upon it, then more tragic events such as the one that happened to Empire actor, Jussie Smollett, in his home town of Chicago. Two white men wearing ski masks (cowards!) recognized him. They yelled homophobic and racist slurs, poured a chemical on him, and put a rope around his neck. When leaving, they yelled, "This is MAGA country!" This vileness is what a Dark Triad has brought to America. In my view, Donald Trump opened Pandora's Box and made hate cool. Trump. Not a normal man.
Then, think of the destruction that can be wrought on America when Dark Triads find and work with each other? Even Roger Stone called himself a Machiavellian personality in the documentary, "Get Me Roger Stone."
What worries me more than a Dark Triad? Those who blindly follow them.
