SATURDAY 28 NOVEMBER: On the question of whether Trump should receive courtesy intelligence briefings once he’s out of office, the Narcissist’s Playbook says, Of course, he’ll demand them to make Biden deny them and produce a controversy. And, you know that in 2028, the next Repube president will deny President Harris briefings in retaliation. But, there is no way he should be given any more national secrets than absolutely necessary since he could never be trusted with them. He’s blurted secrets just because he can and bolster his sense of importance. He’ll sell them for personal profit. He can’t be trusted with them.
THURSDAY 26 NOVEMBER: Please note that it is the prediction of Ye Olde Blogge that at some point Trump will simply go to one of his resorts and never return to the White House. He will do this with as little fanfare as possible. Anything else, but especially, being physically removed from the White House, would be a narcissistic wound that he could not bear to endure.
The Ol’ Pussy Grabber is going to grouse about having the election stolen from him for the rest of his life. It is now and will be forever more the dominate narrative of his life. Even if he manages to steal the election, he will be milking this grievance forever. Just like he has never been able to let go of these grievances: Lock Her Up! the millions of illegal votes in 2016, Obama spied on me! the Russia! Russia! Russia! hoax, and Obama.
Give this FIVE-STAR post a FIVE-STAR rating!
The never ending list of grievances that the Ol’ Pussy Grabber is increasingly focused on is all part and parcel of being an extreme narcissist, which, as we’ve pointed out repeatedly here on Ye Olde Blogge over the past four years, makes him very predictable and manipulable. It’s as if there is a narcissist’s playbook.
My prediction: no one is safe from the wrath of Trump. He’ll alternate between pouting and raging. In between, he’ll be targeting the people, groups, organizations, and institutions that aggrieve him (Pro-tip: it’s everybody) because this is what the narcissist’s playbook says he’ll do.
He’s a Narcissist
Donald Trump is a narcissist. All narcissists have two layers: their inner self and the facade that they present to the world. The inner self is a core of shame and the facade is an illusion of perfection.
The inner self. The core of the narcissist is a fear of being discovered for who you truly are and being hated, despised, and banished for it. It is a shame so deep that it is approaching critical mass. It will implode on itself creating a black hole where their soul should be and suck in every last remnant of humanity. It is a constant feeling of despair that threatens them every moment of their life.
The Facade. Narcissists wrap this core of shame in a cocoon of lies about their accomplishments and fantasies of success, power, brilliance, beauty. They delude themselves with visions of their perfection and project this illusion on to the world. It is a very fragile facade, and they know it.
Coping Mechanisms. They have developed a sophisticated collection of coping mechanisms to distract themselves and the world from their core of shame.
Narcissistic Wounds. When something happens and the facade cracks and the core of shame is visible to the world, the narcissist experiences a narcissistic wound. They are engulfed by their feelings of worthlessness, and it threatens to destroy them.
When wounded, narcissists will become in enraged and try and destroy whatever has injured them. They will lash out in any way they can to removed the reminder of their shame, distract the world from it, and repair the delusion of perfection.

The Narcissist’s Playbook: Destroy the OFFENDERS
Losing Election 2020 is the greatest narcissistic wound that Trump or any narcissist has ever experienced. He will spend the rest of his life trying to remove this reminder of his inner core of shame, distract the world from it, and repair his delusion of perfection. What does the narcissist’s playbook tell us he will do?
He has already started destroying the people, organizations, and institutions that he blames for his loss. He blames everyone. And, when I say everyone, I mean everyone. No one is spared:
- Joe Biden: He beat him, duh!
- Democratic voters: They didn’t vote for him, double duh!
- Kamala Harris: She beat him; she’s a woman; she’s black, triple duh!
- MAGAs — WHAAAT? — They didn’t vote for him in sufficient numbers for him to win, so they’re guilty! 72 million duhs!
- Specific Republicans who are not helping him steal the election! Brad Raffensperger, Brian Kemp, and Gerogia’s Republicans! Duh, y’all!
- REPUBLICANS WHO ARE CALLING ON HIM TO STOP: The dream will never end! You cannot stop him! Chris Christie gets a double duh!
- The GOP — WHAAAT? — If they would’ve supported him right, he wouldn’t have lost. And, he hopes Mitch McConnell chokes on this duh!
- Fox News: They said he lost, duh, of course!
No help for the gop! The Repubes are no longer useful to him. They were a vehicle for his adulation and ascent to power. He will enjoy their courting of him so his base won’t turn on them, but that’s about it. He’ll milk that for as long as he can.
The Georgia runoff is the perfect microcosm of how he’ll treat the GOP. So far, he’s ignored the runoff. He won’t even try a little bit to help get Loeffler and Purdue elected. He’s taking his toys and going home. He’s got better things to do. He’s got an election to steal no thanks to Georgia Republicans. If they weren’t losers and suckers, they wouldn’t be in a run off.
Expect Trump to attack Repubes and Dems alike. He won’t distinguish. Both parties let him down.
Milk the Base! Trump has a love hate relationship with his base. He needs their adoration, but they are losers and suckers. They are also a good source of money. He’ll hold rallies, eventually — it still hurts too much to do so right now — just to hear them cheer and collect the gate and spread #COVID19 further.
It’s weird, I know. He needs his base, but he hates them, too, and needs to hurt them. He’ll infect them with #COVID19 to prove that he is powerful and he’ll take their money that they can ill afford to give.
He won’t appear in public, much. He’s too ashamed of having lost to face the public. Simple as that. As time goes on, he’ll appear a bit more. Not much. He won’t be taking questions lest someone ask him about losing. Whatever he does in public, it won’t be presidenting, though. Towards the very end in mid-January, he might could even have a rally. He’ll go to golf courses, but not Mar-a-Lago because there are too many “members” there that he might have to talk to.
he won’t Concede. But, he has CONCEDED! This incoherent tweet — why hasn’t he figured out how to make a tweet thread? — is as close to a concession as he will get.
The transition. @GSAEmily has FINALLY authorized the start of the transition in true Trump style with lies, grievance, excuses, and never directly acknowledging the truth of the situation. The people serving in the various departments can and are reaching out to the transition, but there will be no head of department help, no cabinet officers, no personal adviser who will do anything beyond the minimum.
There will, however, be deliberate acts of sabotage. Records destroyed — especially those that are incriminating — and hostile actors embedded in civil service positions. There are also the indirect acts of sabotage: The many positions they never filled so there is nothing to transition when there should be. Records that were not kept because they couldn’t be bothered.
Carrying on the VOTER FRAUD conspiracy theories and law suits. This is a big bonus multi-pay off act of destruction. (1) It de-legitimizes the Biden-Harris administration in the same way Mueller and Russia interference de-legitimized his victory. Revenge, amirite? So, it’s a win! (2) It damages our democracy, which let him down by not bending to his will, making an exception for him, and prevented him from winning. Win-win! (3) Even though none of the law suits will overturn the election results, they make him feel better. Win, win, win! And (4) it is a handy grift to fund his future and the money donated by the rank and vile hurts his supporters. Are you sick of all the winning, yet?
I am not familiar enough with the intricacies of the government to know all the ways that he will try and hurt the country, but I know he will. For example, he has pulled us out of the Open Skies treaty, is destroying the two planes that were used to overfly Russia to watch its troop movements, and has made it very difficult to replace them anytime soon. Look out Ukraine. You in trouble.
That’s the playbook. He will be hobbled by this loss for the rest of his life. If you thought that his grievance over the size of his inaugural crowd was bad, you ain’t seen nothing yet.
