I watch the news, I read the news, I hate it, but I do. There seems to be universal agreement that we have made a mistake electing Trump and allowing him to stay in place. Yet, there is no one to step forward and do something about this travesty. We listen to Klan members telling us why it was justified to kill a 32 year old woman. We listen to Trump justify the actions and the words and yet, here we sit.
The clinical side (and thousands of therapists have banned together to make these statements), is that Trump is a narcissistic man, with a disregard for humanity and a never ending interest in self aggrandizement. The “duty to warn” case law is very clear, if a therapist can realistically predict harm, then the therapist must act to warn those who are in danger. America, we are in danger.
For whatever reason, we allow this monster to proceed down a path where human life is inconsequential and his own comfort and pleasure are monumental. Two things, our capitalist culture values wealth above human life and admires wealth as if it is meaningful in some way. This is part of the reason Trump’s dynasty has continued. Trump is seen as a Demi-God, after all, he is wealthy. Of course the fact that he is president stops us from taking action against him, and we must.
Let’s be clear, Donald Trump is a selfish, antagonistic childish man who does not deserve American respect. He does not deserve admiration for his wealth, he is neither responsible for it, nor responsible with it. He is a sexist, power hungry, nasty little boy and he needs to be removed from office. This is America people, not North Korea, we have the right to require that our leader be humane and compassionate.
