Spot on Martie. They say that the easiest person to con is another con, including a con’s own self.

Besides his obnoxious personality and his total sleaze ball charter, Trump does have a mind unlike any normal human being. Most folks play quite different roles during a twenty four hour period within their general nature, depending on what’s appropriate for specific situations. They have a business temperament, a family demeanor, a party behavior and numerous in between ways of interacting with family, friends and children — not the Donald. He has no ability to switch gears.

Trump runs on a single showman /sales track 24/7, with a half dozen talking points rolling around his head and endlessly rolling off his tongue. In other words no matter how hard folks try to have a normal conversation with him, when talking to the Donald everyday is GroundHog’s day. His dominating conversation is just some disjointed ramblings of his self-centered talking points of the moment — always.
