STRENGTH



There are those, I know, who think of Donald Tr*mp as a “strong” leader. I don’t agree.

Refusal to acknowledge truth supported by evidence is not strength, it’s weakness;

Intemperate language and temper tantrums are not strength, they’re weakness;

The insatiable need for adoration is not strength, it’s weakness;

Willful ignorance and the rejection of facts, whether scientific or otherwise, are not strength, they’re weakness;

Refusal to hear, still less to heed, the opinions of others is not strength, it’s weakness;

Blaming others for one's own failures is not strength, it's weakness;

Bullying behavior is easily mistaken for strength, but it’s not, it’s weakness;

Outright rejection of criticism is not strength, it’s weakness;

Telling transparent lies, and constantly repeating them even when they are proven untrue, is not strength, but weakness;

Rudeness and other forms of mistreatment of others are not strength, they’re weakness;

“Grabbing pussy” to prove one’s masculinity is not strength, it’s weakness;

Indiscriminate boasting and exaggeration are not strength, they’re weakness;

Obsession with irrelevant details while neglecting important questions is not strength, it’s weakness.

Donald Tr*mp is a desperately insecure individual whose inner terror of appearing weak compels him to project a false image of strength.
