“I’m not going to lose that wealth. I’m not going to lose it on dreams and windmills, which frankly aren’t working too well.”

Having a senior moment then, Donald?
Perhaps, but some mental health experts have been saying for a while that Trump meets the true definition of a psychopath. It’s one thing to have a narcissist as a national leader, but a psychopath?!
In what way?
I’m not certain, but it may be his insensitivity and tendency to lie blatantly. Even in the face of undisputed facts, he refuses to admit he’s wrong and will extrapolate on the original falsehood or claim.
We’re seeing that play out now with Hurricane Dorian. He had said that Dorian would cross the Floridian peninsula and hit the state of Alabama. The U.S. Weather Service never estimated the storm’s path would take it into the Gulf of México. They predicted it would march up the east coast, which is exactly what it’s doing now. But Trump keeps insisting Alabama was a potential target and the other day held up a chart created by the weather service showing Dorian’s projected route, while it was still out in the Atlantic. Someone used a marker to draw a semi-circle at the far left end of the projected cone (as they call it) to include the state of Alabama.
In other words, somebody had altered the official map by adding to it – which is a federal crime in the U.S. I’m quite certain it was Trump who did that. We’re going on 5 days now, since he made the initial claim that Alabama was in that projected cone, and he still won’t give up on it! I don’t know if that meets the definition of psychological pathology, but it’s certainly pathetic and ridiculous.
Pathetic – quite. He is certainly fixated on being right isn’t he? He must have a huge inferiority complex!
P.S. I like the insertion of ‘faux’
