Donald Trump's entire adult life has been all about retaliation/retribution/revenge. He is absolutely consumed by it. He eats, lives and breathes it. I work with abused and battered women. The one feature that is utterly consistent is the warped mindset of abusers: they ALWAYS feel victimized and use that sense of victimization to justify abusing their partner/family. Trump's family was FUBAR, and now the entire world is paying for it.

What frightens me most is knowing what many abusers do when they lose the control they crave and feel completely entitled to: they burn everything to the ground (metaphorically speaking, mostly). I see Trump and the 1/6 insurrection as his/their example of losing control.

Abusers see their wives/partners/children as personal possessions to do with as they please, kind of how Trump regarded the presidency. Abusers often stalk and kill the women who have the audacity to leave them. We all know Trump is addicted to surrounding himself with people who just say yes to him all the time, no matter how wrong/foul/immoral/obnoxious/corrupt his idea is. He can't handle being told no.

I put nothing past Trump and his shit-flinging, ammosexual goons.

I've often wondered whether -- aside from how badly his parents fucked him up -- there wasn't some specific pathological incident that led to his being shipped off to military school.

Buggering the neighbor boy. Assaulting a housekeeper.

Butchering a dog or cat.

This dude is fucked up in ways that all point to ancient, rooted perversions.

Someone knew, maybe his brother.

Hi Jeff, Me? Well I’m looking forward to a 40 megaton radioactive dump by Emperor Doreto, along with ketchup stained walls, his upper palate plate being dislodged, a litany of the absurd among other deviant behavior... Let’s not forget that if Donald wishes to stop the rape trial he can provide a DNA sample...Just Do It Donald. BTW Judge Kaplan doesn’t put up with any BS in his court... It’s popcorn and Scotch time😳

Please be right. Please. This just can’t go unchecked since no one seems inclined to pin Jan 6 on him in a way that puts his treasonous ass in jail. Still shocking he is even allowed to run for office. I put that on McConnell.

I hope Truth Social has rented some additional server space to handle the volume of all-caps “Truths” coming this weekend. If not, Donnie’s loosely organized grey matter won’t be the only thing that melts down.

Jeff-

One thing that I have not seen anything written about anywhere is this, and you are the man for the job:

How completely idiotic it was for Trump to ask Raffensperger to find *a single vote* more than the official count- as if he could reverse a vote count already called for Biden, and win by A SINGLE VOTE, and then imagine that everybody would be completely fine with that and say, "Welp, I thought Biden won by twelve thousand or something, but it looks like Trump won by a single vote, time to move on."

I think a kid trying to steal the 5th grade student council vote would know better than that.

The republican Georgia governor and state Congress are trying to take down to Fanni Willis. Hopefully that won’t happen and these indictments come down hard on all these fuckwads. It can’t happen soon, enough!

And his cult firmly believe that he has literally been annointed and chosen by God to be president. Whose God, I have no clue, but certainly not the one I was raised to believe in. Granted, I don't do God or religion of any sort anymore (thanks, four years of Catholic high school!), but still.

My dreams are coming true! An end to my deep dark depression may be around the corner! Whoaz me, it’s been a hard road to travel and many a time I felt like laying down in the middle of it and just giving up. But wait! A new day is dawning! I see there might be a way - an opportunity to overcome this misery of the last 7 years. I hope I hope I hope

Trump's paying a lot of other people's legal fees. Wonder how long that will go on. And won't that be fun to watch. So many criminals. Trump a criminal producing machine.
