To put our present situation in proper perspective, here’s a definition of the sore-loser, #resistance narcissist we have to deal with.
People with narcissistic personality disorder believe they are superior or special, and often try to associate with other people they believe are unique or gifted in some way. This association enhances their self-esteem, which is typically quite fragile underneath the surface. Individuals with Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) have difficulty tolerating criticism or defeat, and may be left feeling humiliated or empty when they experience an “injury” in the form of criticism or rejection.

Couple that with the mental state of too many on the left….
A political-science journal that published an oft-cited study claiming conservatives were more likely to show traits associated with “psychoticism” now says it got it wrong. Very wrong. The American Journal of Political Science published a correction this year saying that the 2012 paper has “an error” — and that liberal political beliefs, not conservative ones, are actually linked to psychoticism.

When Hillary Clinton was defeated and the above mentioned did not get their way, the liberal Democrat left took it very personally. They believed, despite the fact in two elections 120,881,827 voted against Barack Obama, the narcissists claimed a mandate to implement anything and everything they wanted and we were all good with it as we didn’t immediately take to the streets in “mostly peaceful” opposition that they would call “obstructionist”, “racist” and “unpatriotic”.
No Republican voter wanted our local law enforcement repeatedly second-guessed by the President of the United States to the point where some were targeted for assassination by liberal crazies who now consider political violence a valuable tool of #resistance, informally blessed by the former attorney general.
The left assumed the next president would continue the legacy of Barack Obama precisely because it was what THEY wanted and Republicans, respectful of the election process, didn’t take to the streets like spoiled children. Instead, Republicans elected politicians they hoped would #resist his policies. So much for that, however….
No Republican voter wanted IRS employees to be able to politically target people and/or entities that weren’t of the political positions they hold.
No Republican voter wanted our country to be balkanized by race, gender and our institutions of higher learning be dominated by educators who feel free to indoctrinate students into “mostly peaceful” activists with one-sided presentations.
No Republican voter wanted unelected bureaucrats that could implement policies affecting our land and water and when they screw up, are shielded from any accountability despite how much they pollute and negatively affect the livelihoods and health of the public.
No Republican voter wanted the federal elected to implement a health care system they exempted themselves, their staffs and families from and despite ALL the promises to the contrary, took away our choice of doctors and plans via a website the cost a half billion dollars and didn’t work.
No Republican voter wanted our intelligence agencies to have the ability to spy on us, yet that’s a part of the Obama legacy.
Instead, we got a president in Barack Obama that encouraged his supporters to go home and disrupt family holiday gatherings. In fact, during the 2008 campaign he said,
I need you to go out and talk to your friends and talk to your neighbors. I want you to talk to them whether they are independent or whether they are Republican. I want you to argue with them and get in their face.
When it comes to the crime of being a presidential narcissist, Barack Obama was clearly near the top of the heap, even though it was mostly the conservative media doing the counting.
The election of Donald J. Trump was a repudiation of policies the leftist #Swamp imposed on the American people and arrogantly assumed would be left in place.
The election of Donald J. Trump was a repudiation of federal employees who believed they knew better than the American people and would imposed their beliefs on us with the full power of the government behind them.
The election of Donald J. Trump was a repudiation of policies that left our inner cities in worse shape then when Obama assumed the presidency, despite direct outreaches to black voters promising the contrary, including condescending overtures like the Obamaphone.
The election of Donald J. Trump was a repudiation of an administration that repeatedly lied directly to our faces on foreign policy disasters that cost the lives of Americans, blaming everything from a YouTube video or a subsequent election loss on Russian collusion without one scintilla of evidence.
The election of Donald J. Trump was a repudiation of policies that gave favor (via the overused moniker of “hate”) to a religious minority that holds questionable allegiance to our country while some are committing violent atrocities unheard of until their gradual admittance began with little attempt to assimilate to our culture while gradually demanding we adapt to theirs.
The election of Donald J. Trump was a repudiation of the continued neglect of Veterans Administration including the many shameless lies told by President Obama, his wife, and other Democrat politicians that veteran homelessness is “functionally ended”.
The election of Donald J. Trump was a repudiation of a political party in bed with a media that fawned all over and protected an administration led by the president one columnist considered “God”; a president who actually said his election “was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal“.
The election of Donald J. Trump was a repudiation of lax immigration policies that have led to the deaths of countless innocent Americans, not to mention the sanctioned, continued genocide of millions of babies in the womb. While topics like granting benefits to illegal aliens and gay rights consistently lose at the ballot box, liberal judges blow off the Constitution and impose their superior judgments to the detriment of the “non-college educated” consider beneath them.
The election of Donald J. Trump was a repudiation of liberal Hollywood elites who believed they have the power to change public opinion and shame opposition into voting for Democrats and their policies. Many of these “celebrities” still believe the promise to leave the country and deny us of their presence is enough to make us change our minds despite the fact they never leave when we don’t succumb to their threats.
Since the election of President Donald J. Trump, almost every doom-and-gloom scenario painted by the left has been proven false despite the initial declarative hysterics.
The disaster for America and the world has so many aspects that the economic ramifications are way down my list of things to fear. Still, I guess people want an answer: If the question is when markets will recover, a first-pass answer is never.
— Paul Krugman, New York Times, 11/9/16
The stock market has risen to record levels to this day, yet a responsible admission of error will never come from narcissists.
As a result of the election of President Donald J. Trump, some on the left are planning to invoke the 25th Amendment in an attempt to have him removed because in their wisdom and benevolence, they believe he’s a dangerous narcissist in undoing the wonderful legacy of Barack Obama.
They would know.
