Donald Trump’s untreated and serious case of Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) was on full display during a campaign speech at a rally in Billings, Montana on Thursday, telling a sycophantic crowd of worshipers that his massive, yet fragile ego wants a statue of himself in the nation’s capitol alongside great American founder and author of the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson.
“So, we’re going to build the wall…Build a wall. It’s going to be a beautiful wall. Someday, when I’m gonzo, maybe they’ll name it after Trump. I’d really rather have a statue in Washington, D.C.
I don’t want a wall named after me but that’s okay. I want a statue in Washington, D.C! [Loud cheers] Maybe share it with [Thomas] Jefferson or something. We’re going to build a wall. It’s going to be a big powerful wall.”
What you’re reading above, and will watch below, is the real reason Donald Trump is running for president. It isn’t to “make America great again.” His insatiable ego is hungry and must be fed.
Sadly, the Trumpaloompas in the crowd clapped like seals, which is quite possibly even more disturbing than Trump’s comments themselves.
Speaking Donald Trump’s name in the sentence as Thomas Jefferson is an absolute outrage and is disgraceful. I doubt if the bloviating billionaire and reality TV actor has ever read the Declaration of Independence, or if he did, would even understand it.
I would note that Trump is not Ronald Reagan — he is the anti-Reagan, the exact antithesis of Ronald Reagan. Trump takes credit for everything possible, however, Reagan was a humble man who didn’t care who received credit for accomplishments.
One of my favorite Ronald Reagan quotes: “There is no limit to the amount of good you can do if you don’t care who gets the credit.”
You’ll never catch Donald Trump that kind of humility.
