Donald J. Trump
@realDonaldTrump

As I have stated strongly before, and just to reiterate, if Turkey does anything that I, in my great and unmatched wisdom, consider to be off limits, I will totally destroy and obliterate the Economy of Turkey (I’ve done before!). They must, with Europe and others, watch over...

He's actually very good at destroying and obliterating economies. He's doing a great job on the US economy for anyone who is considered 'poor'.

"Narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) is a long-term pattern of abnormal behavior characterized by exaggerated feelings of self-importance, an excessive need for admiration, and a lack of understanding of others' feelings."

Signs and symptoms
People with narcissistic personality disorder are characterized by their persistent grandiosity, excessive need for admiration, and a disdain and lack of empathy for others. These individuals often display arrogance, a sense of superiority, and power-seeking behaviors. Narcissistic personality disorder is different from having a strong sense of self-confidence. This is because people with NPD typically value themselves over others to the extent that they disregard the feelings and wishes of others and expect to be treated as superior regardless of their actual status or achievements. In addition, people with NPD may exhibit fragile egos, an inability to tolerate criticism, and a tendency to belittle others in an attempt to validate their own superiority."

"Therapy is often difficult as people frequently do not consider themselves to have a problem."

So everyone has abandoned him and said this decision was awful, except Rand Paul, and Trump quickly reversed course.

Imagine if the GOP would stand up to his other crap?

I'm glad they care about the fate of the Kurds, just wish they cared about their fellow Americans.

^^ Yes and it should give the GOP a glimpse into how easily they could control and stop him if they wanted, but instead he gives them full cover in a way most presidents usually never have done. So they've been drunk for a long time.

Saying that a Congresscritter only cares about power is a cliche but this world we're in clearly demonstrates it.

"When I took over our military, we did not have ammunition. I was told by a top general, maybe the top of them all, 'Sir, I'm sorry sir, we don't have ammunition.' I said, I will never let that happen to another president."

Is this for sure? So far I've only seen a story that an anonymous official says it isn't happening.

I wonder how many holes Obama has knocked in his walls.

This is such a cluster - what I thought happened is that Trump initially said he supported an attack by Turkish forces in Northern Syria, against the Kurds, and that the US would be withdrawing troops. Then he reversed course and threatened to destroy Turkey's economy if they did a move the US didn't approve of. It's chaos.

Yeah McConnell et al cried foul this afternoon and Trump very quickly tried to save face (that tweet) but reversed himself supposedly. He really has zero backbone nor convictions about doing anything. It’s weird the GOP sublimates.
