Trump’s Insulting Tweet about Doug Jones, the Alabama Democratic nominee, Reveals More about Trump

Posted by Anthony L. Hall

The psychopathology afoot here is called projection. It is defined by people attributing to others traits, faults, and blame that inhere in themselves. And it explains almost every insult Trump has hurled at his opponents throughout this presidential campaign.

So when you hear him calling other people crooked, insecure, weak, beholding to special interests, liars, etc., be mindful that he’s revealing self-conscious truths about himself, unwittingly.

(“Forget the Clinton Foundation. Shut Down the Trump Organization!” The iPINIONS Journal, August 26, 2016)

With that, here is the typically juvenile way he tweeted this morning about Doug Jones, the Democratic nominee for Alabama’s open seat in the US Senate.

The last thing we need in Alabama and the US Senate is a Schumer/Pelosi puppet who is WEAK on Crime, WEAK on the Border, Bad for our Military and our great Vets, Bad for our 2nd Amendment, AND WANTS TO RAISES TAXES TO THE SKY. Jones would be a disaster!

And, with projection in mind, here is the unwitting truth Trump’s tweet revealed about himself:

The last thing we need in Washington and the White House is a Putin/Bannon puppet who is WEAK on Russia, RACIST on immigration, RECKLESS with our Military and our indispensable allies, variously CLUELESS about and CONTEMPTUOUS of the Constitution, democratic institutions, and all norms of civil society, AND WANTS TO CUT TAXES SO THE RICH LIKE HIM CAN GET RICHER. Trump IS a disaster! #IDIOT.

That shared, Roy Moore is the Republican nominee for this open seat. Several women have accused him of preying on them when they were teenagers, including one who said she was just 14 when a then 32-year old Moore sexually assaulted her.

Yet Trump is drumming up support for him with that tweet. Political tribalism is tearing America apart. And Trump’s presidency smacks of a demonic force designed to have Republicans and Democrats ape the Sunnis and Shias who have been fighting for the soul of Islam for over 1000 years.

Still, it is unconscionable even for Trump to think that America would be better served if the Senate has another Republican (who happens to be an unrepentant pedophile) instead of another Democrat (who happens to be more conservative than Ronald Reagan).

Which is why it is noteworthy that Trump’s daughter Ivanka has damned Moore as follows:

There’s a special place in hell for people who prey on children.

Because this puts an awkward twist on the Trumpian compulsion to project. For, arguably, Ivanka was unwittingly damning her own Daddy as follows:

There’s a special place in hell for people who champion men who prey on children for political benefit.

(ALH, The IPINIONS Journal, November 26, 2017)

That said, it’s all too understandable that Trump is supporting Moore. After all, birds of a feather

But many Republican senators are making quite a show of declaring the accusations of sexual misconduct against Moore politically indefensible. They are even threatening to expel him if Alabama voters are morally bankrupt enough to elect him.

The problem, of course, is that these are the same Republican senators who were themselves morally bankrupt enough to champion Trump – when he was just the Republican presidential nominee. And this, despite accusations of sexual misconduct against him, including rape, that were even more politically indefensible. #HYPOCRITES!
