This is like what some oriental despot would do in antiquity.

Trump is mentally ill. Seriously and dangerously so and if he gets back into power he'll kill people. Deliberately. Odds are he already has a list written down.

Like an oriental despot.

Brave Sir Robin Ran Away
Bravely bold Sir Robin
Rode forth from Camelot.
He was not afraid to die,
Oh brave Sir Robin.
He was not at all afraid
To be killed in nasty ways.
Brave, brave, brave, brave Sir Robin.

If you have to pay people to tell you how great you are, maybe you aren't that great.

The link in the headline is wrong.

That aside...

From the tweet in the sub-summary...

...a rotating cast of aides has been tasked with following him around the golf course at the club he's at and giving him positive reinforcement from Twitter and wherever else they find it on the web, per ppl told of the practice....

A cast of characters has been tasked?


By whom?

(that's why I tried to follow the main link, to see if the cited article answered the question)

Found this...

Trump has aides who follow him around on the golf course and recite positive things people say about him on social media: NYT reporter

...Back in 2017, CNN reported that Trump held a cabinet meeting while he sat silently as officials lavished praise on him, while Politico reported at the time that one of the ways aides tried to restrain his often incendiary tweets was to ensure he had a steady diet of praise from allies and friendly media organizations provided to him.

Some foreign leaders reportedly sought to use Trump's weakness for praise to their advantage as they sought to strengthen ties with the US during his term in office, according to reports.

North Korea's Kim Jong Un entered into a correspondence with Trump during his presidency, and Trump would boast of the "beautiful letters" he received from the dictator. ...

Reads like a----------- where only one person finds satisfaction, and maybe not for long, if at all ...

Carly Simon - It Was So Easy


I remember a time, rompin' through the woods
Sun against our skin instead of clothes
When we felt hungry we would eat, whn we felt glad we would dance
And whenever we felt drowsy we would doze

It was so easy then never takin' any stands
It was so easy then, holdin' hands

I remember a time when our fears could be named
And courage meant not refusing dares
I remember when we took such cares to step never on the cracks,
No only on the squares
Or else we'd be abducted by the bears

It was so easy then never makin' any plans
It was so easy then, holdin' hands
It was so easy then never makin' any plans
It was so easy then, holdin' hands

And now we are grown, with debts and regrets
And broken hearts and sentimental schemes
Now every tender failure seems to overthrow old dreams
Love can lead a normal woman to extremes

can't make this up.

New York Times will have to add it's name to this list now that they have come out saying that Trump "aint' so bad after all.....compared to

the "devil" in Florida. I wonder if they even considered if any readers would notice....I say no they didn't.

You've had diarrhea. You are quite aware that some forms of ---- are better than others.

I'm surprised "Dotard" made it to the front page without being edited.

Absolutely NO difference from this and Lightfoot admitting recently that she doesn't use negative information to influence her legislation process. She only cares about the positive things the people tell her and she is on record and quoted as saying as much so there is no way of denying it.

So...once again we are faced with hypocrisy from the Left. If it's a bad thing for one side, it's bad for the other. Start calling your own people out before others.

From what I have seen here I am certain you would be eager sniff either one of their butts.

Napoleon would have done this. Trump may be 6', physically, but he's a very small man in every other regard.
