"WHY TRUMP KIDS SHOULD STOP ENABLING & KICK THEIR FATHER TO THE CURB"! My Shocking True Story

Narcissi...oh, heck - you know who it is!

Not Funny this time...

My mother was 101 when she passed away - but when she was around 80; she began to put her ducks in a row.  Oh, she had her Will safely drawn-up years before (down to the teaspoons) but this was just her way of setting things straight on the home front.

One day, she tells me she'd like a woman friend from her senior group who happened to be a retired psychologist to mediate our family's dirty linen in a casual setting - pro bono.

"You & me first", she said.

The fact that my older sister & I were not close was her nagging Achilles heel; leaving a black mark on her Mothering - so what could it hurt?

And, since I was always a supportive & loving 2nd daughter & middle child to boot; I agreed to meet without any discussion - yet never revealing my long held belief of the real cause.

That didn't mean this meet-up was a walk in the park; in fact, it was torturous for me. 

I remember walking into a private entrance to a basement level room of a home this woman shared with her grown daughter's family; then sat on the couch while the woman sat in a straight-back chair in front of us - eyes widened & all business.

As I recall; I stood up for myself, but took plenty of hits.  This left me physically spent & unhappier than I had been since I could remember.  Not because I felt guilty; but that I took my lumps to appease my mother & satisfy this aging mental health professional just to get out of there.

In the short amount of time we had; I remember being frustrated that her questions could never cover the length & breadth of my difficulties with my older sister that left us un-bonded & dysfunctional.

Relieved it was over & hoping never to return; my mother & I walked out of that stranger's home no better & much worse than we had begun.  Yet somehow I believe my Mother was pumped that there was a breakthrough.

Late that night & out of the blue; I get a phone call from this woman's grown daughter - apologizing.

Taken-aback; I was shocked to hear that this retired Psychologist had Dementia & her daughter was effusively repentant on her mother's behalf.

All that angst & emotional whiplash for naught; just because my mother took it upon herself to believe that someone on the outside could fix our inside - for free.

This personal story triggered the notion that Ivanka Trump, her brothers & sister Tiffany could do that same thing for America & the world & make that call. 

It's simple, kids - pick one: Loyalty to your father, your business or your country? 

BTW, turning a blind eye is not loyalty; it's cowardice.  Or is it just Business?

And, don't wait for him to turn himself in - those afflicted do not acknowledge they have a problem.

Trump may not have Dementia; but he has far worse.  Today, the words - Paranoia & Narcissism  get tossed around so commonly; they are simply excused - partly because we can't pronounce it! 

And, how come if you've had it for a long time..."Walking Narcissism" - it doesn't count?

He may not be crazy or nuts - but merely a high functioning businessman just like an alcoholic; who made a couple bucks & learned how to borrow from Peter to pay Paul. 

But, Trump doesn't get it - to be President; you need to have diplomacy & patience, finesse & nuance & wait for it... humility - not just be a great Salesman with a case of Insomnia & 2 un-arthritic thumbs!

And, as citizens - we don't ask for much - we want to believe our President; not question his honesty in both good times & bad.

But, when it comes to ending the world as we know it; an "Intervention/Pre-Kidnap" seems to be in order. 

Just sayin' - but I know some down & out Space Aliens that wouldn't mind making a few bucks!  Mileage is extra, of course.

As we're now seeing Trump act on his campaign promises in the guise of "Change"; you have to be blind to see that his paranoia against "the opposition" has driven him to make rash decisions creating confusion.

I don't care how you slice it; calling his Travel Ban a success is spin & arrogance & he didn't think anyone would notice?

With a low approval rating; I foresee continued chaos with every new directive - no matter how many Presidential Order Signing Photo Ops his hot-shot dream team lined up till 2024.

My suggestion for the next one would be "Speed Bumps for Executive Orders".

And, since narcissism fuels paranoia; I see a merry-go-round of unattainable  Actions & Pronouncements he'll continue to throw against the wall to see if anything sticks & then deftly distract with a vendetta against enemies for concentrating on the wrong stuff.

I say..."If you see something, say something"!

And, I am.  

Unless he's held accountable & kicked to the curb; Donald Trump's pathological lying & un-certifiable Mental Disorders will just continue & be studied someday in a Specimen Jar - but of course, it has to be biggggg!

Don't mind the ear bending but there was a typo.

I think you meant "learned how to borrow from Peter then not pay Paul. "

The repubs will act - how and when  is another story.  my guess is if they start seeing polls that indicate the people are as angry as they are, and will vote their stupid asses out of office, they'll shut his clown car down. 

his children are going to get richer.  they're not stopping old dad anytime soon.

I don't think the Republicans in Congress have as much time as they think.

Trump has no respect for any other branch of government and Bannon has less. They are consolidating power in weird ways Right and left. The ban is in effect and customs officials are ignoring the ban and listening to the President. That means without enforcement the judicial branch can't stop Trump. Goodbye, balance of power. You think Trump and Bannon are listening to Congress? Trump has cultivated law enforcement. The question is whether he alienated the military enough. He just pulled the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs off his security council and replaced him with Bannon. 

We have a way more serious problem than policy.

Thanks jmac - ha ha  You found me out!

Thanks F.Monkey - you mean Ivanka isn't gonna read this? 

Comment by marilyn sands on January 30, 2017 at 6:33pm

Thanks Kosh!  You're always so right on the money. 

I (almost) give up - when Trump said his Cabinet Picks had the highest IQ's of any other Cabinet - I just knew he was covering up for a few dull knives in the drawer.  If that's true - the fun part will be to see how the Cabinet members get along with each other...maybe they will combust!
