America Is Being Held Hostage By A Malignant Narcissist With Nuclear Weapons
The United States is presently being held hostage by a malignant narcissist with access to nuclear weapons.
Who is this man? It is Donald Trump, the President of the United States.
What makes Trump's shamelessness more dangerous is the fact that an entire political apparatus, the Republican Party, defends his behavior, not because they necessarily like him (they don't) but because they think they can manipulate him to fulfill their policy objectives, which are mainly centered around giving the extremely wealthy tax cuts and reducing the rights of women and minorities.
Where does this lead us?
Trump will not leave office unless he is forced out, however he won't be forced out because Republicans still believe that he is useful to them in 2020. Unwilling to learn from the Faustian bargain they made with him in 2016, Republicans seem willing to allow the country to disintegrate in order to eek out a victory in 2020.
So where does this leave us? It means that, unless Republicans grow a spine, the nation is going to be held hostage by Trump, a man without a moral compass, who is also dangerously unstable, until at least 2021,
