Pathologically Lying Trump Possesses A Very Dangerous Non Belief System

One who has been a compulsive liar every second of his consciousness has no basis for understanding what is true and what is not. To these sorts what is true is whatever seems to support their ego driven emotions. Does it benefit my desires? If it does then it must be true. If it is something that has no benefit to me, then it must be either an issue of no consequence or an outright lie.

Some of the greatest salesmen in the world have minds built around such self-absorbed thinking. The intensity of their belief at times causes even the most rational of peoples to go along with them. Think of Bernie Madoff, the Wall Street investor who swindled some rather sophisticated folks out of millions. Indeed, this type of inherent confidence man, the snake oil salesmen, can ruin lives as naturally as most folks breathe.

Only in the case of Trump, with his inability to tell or comprehend truth, he puts our nation and, yes, even the entire world at risk. Millions, and now with hair trigger nuclear weapons always on standby, billions of folk’s existence around the world depend on an American president’s ability to sort out truth from fiction.

And thus, for at least the next four years, with a man in the White House — and his pandering supporters — who make up what is truth as he and they go along, the world will be subjected to one gigantic game of Russian Roulette.
