    He Can’t Even Fake It

    By Josh Marshall

    People with certain autism spectrum disorders
    have difficulty reading social cues which most people understand
    intuitively. Therapists have developed techniques which can help them learn through training what comes effortlessly to others. I can’t help thinking of this when I see President Trump touring Texas with his litany of jarring, tone-deaf or just plain weird comments. But the
    deficit in this case isn’t social cue cognition. It’s empathy.

    There is, of course, a word for people who have an extreme
    inability to feel empathy: sociopath. It can also be certain diagnoses
    of what is called ‘malignant narcissism.’ But even that isn’t quite what gets my attention. Because many sociopaths are actually quite adept at demonstrations of empathy.
    They don’t feel it. But they can mimic the behavior. That’s what gets
    me. Trump can’t even pretend. Even your garden variety jerk politician can put on a show of hugs and supportive words. Trump can’t.

    There are plenty of cases where Trump is cruel and awful. We’ve seen plenty of those. In those cases, his predatory, probably sociopathic nature is plainly evident. But everybody knows that during a natural disaster the President’s job is consoler-in-chief. You don’t have to be crazy cynical to realize that it’s often a chance for a chief executive to connect with people in a human way. It can gain them support. Trump also clearly realizes this and is actually trying. Maybe he doesn’t really care about supporting people. But he gets that he’s supposed to do this touring, hugging, saying the right thing thing. Since this was generally seen as a strong suit for President Obama, he probably wants to outdo Obama at it as well. But he can’t. He’s trying. But it is painfully obvious he doesn’t know how. It’s not just that he can’t outdo Obama. That’s no surprise. He can’t even go through the motions.

    In addition to the basic body language he keeps saying things like “Have a Good Time!” to people stranded in a shelter. Or, ‘it’s going great‘ to people who’ve just lost everything. Or, look at this huge turnout to people who … well, you get the idea. When it comes to acting human or compassionate it’s like the part of his brain governing that species of behavior has been removed. It’s like watching a person who has profound social awkwardness in a meet and greet situation at a cocktail party.

    It’s painful. But again, with Trump it’s not social awkwardness. It’s a
    basic, seemingly fundamental inability not only to experience but even to fake the experience of empathy or human concern. That additional partis what is remarkable to me.

      “This cat just looks pissed…”

      He really does. But he has one hell of a will to survive. It’s truly amazing to see this in animals particularly those you would expect (like a cat in high water) to just succumb to inevitable death. I hope that whoever owns this cat appreciates him.

    When white liberals abuse Black boys to death and still insist on calling them “friends”
    By Hari Ziyad
    August 29, 2017

    “[Ed Buck] would have my son to go out to … Santa Monica Boulevard looking for young gay Black guys so he could inject them with drugs, see their reaction and … take pictures of them.” — LaTisha Nixon, mother of Gemmel Moore.

    On July 27, 26-year-old Gemmel Moore was found dead after overdosing on crystal meth in the West Hollywood home of 63-year-old Ed Buck, a prominent Democratic political donor. Moore was a gay Black sex worker, whose journal—which was collected posthumously—corroborated what friends told his mother about the man whose apartment he would ultimately die inside:

    “I honestly don’t know what to do. I’ve become addicted to drugs and the worst one at that,” a December entry reads. “Ed Buck is the one to thank. He gave me my first injection of crystal meth it was very painful, but after all the troubles, I became addicted to the pain and fetish/fantasy.”

    According to the L.A. Sentinel, The Los Angeles County Coroner immediately classified Moore’s death as an accidental overdose, but more of Buck’s victims have since come forward to recount similar stories of his “Tuskegee Experiment like fetish”—injecting drugs into young Black men, often without their permission, after they’ve been given a “date rape” drug or while they’re unconscious.

    After push-back from Moore’s mother and more stepping forward to confirm the story of Buck’s fetish for abusing young Black men with drugs, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department says they are now investigating Moore’s death as a possible homicide.

  4. I just can’t. Trump went to Houston and insulted the media. He clearly doesn’t know how to conduct himself. I watched the media in Houston & Fayette County reporting IN THE RAIN while standing in water. Don’t come to our neck of the woods while we’re hurting and insult our people. We’re not having it! Get out and stay the fk out!

      And, of course, the Weather Channel is media. Jim Cantore, Paul Goodloe, Stephanie Abrams, and many others plus the crews show up at every weather event no matter how severe and how dangerous. I guess they don’t count.

      Trump had to go back to Texas a second time to try to act like someone who is not devoid of humanity and he just couldn’t do it.

    I love you, but why are you having this supply side clown on, and not, from the opening statement, attack him about KANSAS?

    KANSAS, which has been a laboratory for all the bullshyt he spews?

      Ending DACA is about…
      1.) Another step in trying to decimate President Obama’s legacy.
      2.) Appeasing resentful whites who voted for Trump.

      There is no third reason.
