Maybe It’s Time We Just Take Trump On His Face Value
When the Donald decided to sack FBI Director James Comey last week, in such a brisk and unceremonious manner, political think-tanks and news channels alike, went into a dizzy trying to understand his motive. Was it Russia? Was it really Hillary Clinton?
Trump’s press associates even went into ‘wall’ mode, refusing to answer any more questions about the incident. Sean Spicer even took to hiding in the bushes, in order to avoid getting any embarrassing questions.
So why did he do it? The answer might be simpler than we think.
He did it because he’s angry. He’s annoyed at the news channels who are hell bent on stoking the fire on ‘Russia & Trump’. He’s pissed at Comey because the FBI Director refused to corroborate Trump’s claims on Obama wiretapping him. He’s angry because he expected Comey to be more loyal.
His bad ratings = Comey’s lack of support.
And that ladies and gentlemen is the real reason why he fired FBI Director James Comey.
At least that’s what the Washington Post and Politico would like to have us believe.
All of us are pushing to understand Trump, the businessman, the President, and the man himself, or at least hoping to be able to predict his next staggeringly shocking move. But what if there isn’t anything to understand about Donald Trump, to comprehend his actions. What if we are pushing so hard to find something that isn’t there, that we are over-thinking the matter and thereby giving him more credit than he deserves.
To cut to the chase, Trump might just be exactly as we seem him to be, and how Hillary and the entire Democratic caucus pushed us to understand – “a hopeless narcissist with the attention span of a fruit fly, unable to maintain consistent beliefs or commitments from moment to moment, acting on base instinct, entirely situationally, to bolster his terrifyingly fragile ego.”
