Anybody following the sad pathetic story of Admiral Ronny Jackson’s nomination to head the VA and Senate confirmation hearing? Anybody? Just me? It is a particularly ridiculous example of the toxicity of the Ol’ Pussy Grabber’s leadership. Ultimately, Admiral Jackson will be another bit of living flotsam left in the destructive wake of the Ol’ Pussy Grabber’s life. He’ll join the legions left far behind and worse than ruined.
Unproductive: Executive Dysfunction
Why would the Ol’ Pussy Grabber nominate such a deeply flawed nominee? Why would he think that he could possibly be confirmed as Secretary of the Veteran’s Affairs? The answer is simple, y’all. There ain’t no big mystery here. It’s because the Ol’ Pussy Grabber cannot be bothered to do the small stuff. He just don’t have the executive functioning necessary to go through the process of drawing up a shortlist of candidates, vet them all, and then nominate the one most likely to be approved.
This is how Admiral Ronny came to be nominated. Someone finally got the Ol’ Pussy Grabber’s attention about the vacancy at Veterans. Veterans mean military. Admiral Ronny is military. Admiral Ronny comes easily to mind. The Ol’ Pussy Grabber likes Admiral Ronny. Ergo presto, Admiral Ronny is nominated.
The White House Human Resources officer probably mumbled something about vetting and experience knowing something about his tenure in the White House to which the Ol’ Pussy Grabber said, “I want Ronny. He’s a good man. You put his name on there.”
As soon as someone says no, you can’t do that, the Ol’ Pussy Grabber doubles down. It don’t matter whether it is friend or foe. He’ll fight fight fight. Again, it is his executive dysfunction in service to his weak narcissistic ego. His ego is so inflated that he thinks he’s always right. He never doubts himself for a minute about any topic, any choice, any decision. He’s so insecure that any suggestion that he’s wrong will bring out the fight. He can’t tolerate any question to his perfection. Anything less is a narcissistic wound that has to be covered lest it cause him to deflate and fly around the room like an out-of-control balloon.
His executive dysfunction means that he cannot manage his emotions or impulses. As soon as the anger starts, he’s got to express it. And, challenging him will cause him to lose his temper not only immediately, but also, extremely. He is not only flying off the handle as the spindle turns at warp speed, he’s left the atmosphere, the solar system, passing the speed of light.
He has no break under certain circumstances. He can’t slow down, and he certainly can’t stop. Undoubtedly, somebody in the White House argued against nominating Admiral Ronny, but it only pissed the Ol’ Pussy Grabber off and he dug in and refused.
All You Need to Know
And, that’s not only all you need to know about the Admiral Ronny nomination, but all you need to know about any and all of the Ol’ Pussy Grabber’s nominations. It is the reason why this administration is understaffed, inexperienced, and incompetent.
The other thing that is happening is the ease with which his narcissism makes him easily manipulated. Anyone can get a nominee as long as they push the right buttons with the Ol’ Pussy Grabber no matter how many skeletons are loosely hidden in a closet or sticking out from under the carpet or bulging under a couch cushion.
Now here’s the really scary part. This is as good as it gets. This is the Ol’ Pussy Grabber at his most functional. It won’t ever get any better than the failed Admiral Ronny nomination, but there are times when it will get worse much much worse.
