He just can’t help himself. He just can’t. His ego, or as “many people have said,” his Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) does not allow him to avoid these stupid sideshows that are not helpful to his campaign to defeat Hillary Clinton, assuming that’s really Donald Trump’s end goal.
Former Republican senator and host of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” has been purposely taunting and baiting Trump with a new nickname, “Amnesty Don,” as well as a new satirical music video for “softening” and “waffling” on issues, calling him a “soft and flaccid man.”
Trump responded on Friday with the type of hit-tweet that was the norm during the GOP primary, calling “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski “crazy” and “very dumb” while accusing her of having a “mental breakdown.”
Scarborough, he simply referred to as “a mess!”

Let’s be honest. Nothing Trump does is going to cause him to lose support among the Trump Cult. However, any “one the fence” voters out there that have been unsettled by his unhinged antics — voters that he needs if he has any chance of winning — are not likely to approve of these type of immature attacks.
