Trump’s Greatest Fear Is That The Rest Of Humanity Is As Awful As him

When you spend your entire life sticking it to others, you become paranoid thinking that the rest of humanity must be the same loathsome way. You are sure that Hillary is a liar and that the election is rigged against you, since you are searching for ways to rig the election in your favor; and then you are cocky and silly enough to brag about it.

By their own actions folks like Trump create their own living hell of feeling persecuted, being that they would in a heartbeat persecute others. As they say you manufacture your own bad karma, so even when Trump types seem to win, in the end they lose. Those who now hitch their wagon to the apparent winning Trump are dooming themselves to future misery of one kind or another, although it will not always become apparent as such by the outside world.

If this were not true Trump would not need to fill every waking minute trying to convince him and the world about how great he is. It’s a desperate facade to try to stay one step ahead of his awfulness. But one false move and he will come completely undone. Let’s hope it’s not at a time when he has his finger on the nuclear trigger.

But take heart those of you posessing sanity, unintended consequences can sometimes work out for the better. Yes, evil men can on occasion accidentally cause good things to happen.
