Trump is indeed a strange dude. He’s a prolific liar, but not a good liar. A good liar never alerts ones senses to the fact that he is actually lying. Trump on the other hand gos out of his way with his transparency to make one know that he is lying. It’s all part of his bullying nature. Sure I’m lying, so what the fuck are you going to do about it is his message to the world.

There is a certain type of self-loathing personality that likes to latch on to this type of ruthlessly indifferent creep. I guess the attraction is: Gee, compared to this guy I’m a really good person. He therefore makes me feel good about myself even though I know he’s a bum.
