A really good column on the lying liar who is now hiring pee-hookers to piss on the Resolute Desk and everything else America stands for in the Oval Office — you know it’s true, even though I just made it up. It has that illusion of truthiness to it that the Ol’ Pussy Grabber don’t even try to have any more.
Still, gossip columnist, Susan Mulcahy, documents her long experience with the Ol’ Pussy Grabber as a pathological liar. You might be wondering, how could self-respecting professional reporters not have brought this long and scary history more to the fore during the election? I mean, it was right there in front of them. It wouldn’t even’ve taken a pin prick to find this stuff, amirite? What the fuck is wrong with the mainstream press? I mean there were media organizations like MSNBC covering this, and there were stories on traditional news outlets like CNN and the networks, but it never dominated like it shoulda. Instead we got a lot of hand-wringing about what do we do when he lies to us? Ya fucking call him a liar! Instead, we got …er her emails and both sides do it… And the media being easily manipulated by every attempt at spin coming out of the Repubes.
He has become so used to getting away with everything that the fact that he lies about everything clearly doesn’t bother him: he knows it’s going to roll off his back.
— Susan Mulcahy in The Guardian
Back to the thirty-year history this woman has with the Ol’ Pussy Grabber lying and the reason I posted the article to Ye Olde Blogge. She, like most people, tries to offer a reason for his pathological lying. He has become so used to getting away with everything that the fact that he lies about everything clearly doesn’t bother him: he knows it’s going to roll off his back.
But that’s not it. He lies because he feels no compunction not to lie. When a “normal” person lies, we feel anxiety, angst, guilt, something negative, even if it is just a worry about getting caught. The Ol’ Pussy Grabber feels nothing. He may not even know he’s lying. He may even believe what he is saying is true at the time he’s saying it.
As a narcissist he doesn’t have the same relationship with his emotions as you or I have. Human beings are emotional decision makers, which includes the decision to tell a lie. If he doesn’t have the same standard emotional package that the human genome produces or has an extreme variation of it, then he isn’t going to be making decisions like most of us do or even making similar decisions that most of us would make in similar situations. The emotional reaction that produce our decisions don’t come out the same in him.
She implies that he was trained to be a pathological liar; I’m sure he was born a pathological liar. It’s in his genes. It is in the design of how his brain works. Follow these links for more of my thoughts on the importance of his diagnosis as a narcissistic personal disorder and the evidence of his diagnosis an unproductive malignant personality disorder.
A gossip columnist’s guide to outwitting Trump, ‘a narcissist beyond description’
The former New York Post columnist Susan Mulcahy has been dealing with Trump’s lies for decades. What is her advice to the media on handling him?
Lucia Graves @lucia_graves
When Donald Trump became a presidential candidate, Susan Mulcahy got a call from a former colleague at New York Newsday. “You’d better stock up on valium,” the ex-colleague said.
“It’s because I hated him so much,” said Mulcahy, the veteran gossip columnist who covered Trump for years at the New York Post, describing the call. “I would go ballistic if his name was mentioned in the office.”
Trump’s reputation as a liar now precedes him, but this week it reached new heights. In addition to reports that he regularly brags about winning the votes of a majority of American women – he did not – other accounts say that he has begun questioning the authenticity of the Access Hollywood tape in which he boasted about grabbing women’s genitals.
It’s an over-the-top falsehood (the hosts of Access Hollywood have reiterated that the tape is authentic) but to Mulcahy, it is just par for the course with Trump. “Most people have an alibi or a backup plan; Trump doesn’t do that,” she told the Guardian. “He just says the exact opposite of what he did five minutes ago.”
