“Governor Orca’s – carcass washes up on a – closed New Jersey beach”

Don’t call Trump a four-year old. It’s insulting to children.

May 22, 2017

Trump might be a narcissist, psychopath and megalomaniac but he’s not a four-year old. Four-year olds care about the truth, are curious, can pay attention, can tell the difference between fantasy and reality, recognize that their own past beliefs might have been wrong, are not egocentric and self-centered but rather empathetic and altruistic, have a strong moral sense, avoid harming others and think that people should obey social norms and rules. Trump has none of these traits.
