The Last Laugh …

If I were Hillary Clinton, I would be laughing and feeling pretty darned good right about now!  Sure, she won the election but lost the presidency, most likely due to some high-level hijinx.  But Donald Trump has paid her the highest compliment she may ever receive, though I doubt he realizes it yet.  How so, you ask?

For the entire six months Trump has been in office, he has not let up on his criticisms of his former opponent, Hillary Clinton.  Almost weekly there is some new empty threat or meaningless accusation from his tiny-twitter-fingers.  He simply cannot let it go, cannot seem to get her out of his small mind.  All of which tells me one thing …

Donald Trump, the man with an ego the size of Manhattan Island, feels very insecure and very threatened by Hillary Clinton.  There is simply no other possible explanation.  He won the electoral vote and thereby is now sitting with his pudgy butt in the chair in the Oval Office, yet he is still bashing Hillary Clinton, a woman who can do him no harm now and who probably only wishes she could put the ugly memory behind her.

February 15th“This Russian connection non-sense is merely an attempt to cover-up the many mistakes made in Hillary Clinton’s losing campaign.”

March 20th“What about all of the contact with the Clinton campaign and the Russians? Also, is it true that the DNC would not let the FBI in to look?”

March 27th“Why isn’t the House Intelligence Committee looking into the Bill & Hillary deal that allowed big Uranium to go to Russia, Russian speech…. …money to Bill, the Hillary Russian “reset,” praise of Russia by Hillary, or Podesta Russian Company. Trump Russia story is a hoax. #MAGA!”

March 28th“Why doesn’t Fake News talk about Podesta ties to Russia as covered by @FoxNews or money from Russia to Clinton – sale of Uranium?”

April 3rd“Did Hillary Clinton ever apologize for receiving the answers to the debate? Just asking!” and “Was the brother of John Podesta paid big money to get the sanctions on Russia lifted? Did Hillary know?”

May 31st – “Crooked Hillary Clinton now blames everybody but herself, refuses to say she was a terrible candidate. Hits Facebook & even Dems & DNC.”

June 9th“How long did it take your staff of 823 people to think that up–and where are your 33,000 emails that you deleted?”

June 25th“Hillary Clinton colluded with the Democratic Party in order to beat Crazy Bernie Sanders. Is she allowed to so collude? Unfair to Bernie!”

July 12th“Why aren’t the same standards placed on the Democrats. Look what Hillary Clinton may have gotten away with. Disgraceful!”

July 16th“HillaryClinton can illegally get the questions to the Debate & delete 33,000 emails but my son Don is being scorned by the Fake News Media?”

There’s more, but you get the picture.  Donald Trump has a very unhealthy obsession for Hillary Clinton that can only stem from feeling insecure and threatened. It would be funny, were he not supposed to be focusing on the things we pay him to do, like running the country. It would be funny … if he were a 16-year-old kid who lost his best marble in a game against a girl.  It would be funny if it did not speak volumes about the mentality of the man who has the nuclear codes at his tiny fingertips.

Although there is evidence to the contrary, Trump continues to claim that “In addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally”.  Then in March, Trump established the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, or as Trump himself refers to it, the Voter Fraud Committee. As per my July 1 post, the commission attempted to jeopardize our voting rights by requesting private information on every voter, but the majority of the states refused to comply.  The commission held its first meeting yesterday, during which vice-chariman of he committee, Kris Kobach said that due to voter fraud, “we may never know” if Hillary won the popular vote or not.  It is apparent that this commission was established, at least in part, to attempt to legitimize Trump’s unsupported claim of voter fraud, though Kobach claims otherwise.

In elections past, the losing candidate congratulates the winning candidate, then goes home to lick his/her wounds.  The winning candidate then spends his time preparing for the job ahead, learning from people already in office, reading and studying.  Then on January 20th, that winning candidate assumes the heavy responsibility that is the office of president.  His days and sometimes nights are occupied with decisions, foreign policy, budgets, policy-making, learning the ropes, etc.  But in the case of Donald Trump, he eschewed the learning process, partly because he did not understand what he was being told, and partly because he already thought he knew everything.  Then once in office, rather than knuckling down to the task ahead, he chose to spend his time ruminating on two people:  Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.  His own insecurities are costing this nation in ways we may never fully understand.  But to return to my initial point, if I were Hillary Clinton, I would be laughing long and loud, for even eight months after the election, he is still afraid of her!

  1. Dear Jill,
    For the next few weeks I do wonder if Bill and Hillary Clinton don’t have the popcorn and martinis ready as they watch DDT put on quite a reality show, while she is sighing with relief that she is no longer in the hot seat.
    He’s the one who asked for this.I would be enjoying this a lot more if this situation weren’t so serious.
    Hugs, Gronda.

  2. How very, very sad. If he’s in the White House for four years will he continue this way? How miserable for everyone around him. I wonder if Malania hears that all the time. He seems to be aging before our eyes. He’ll break his health. —- Suzanne

    • I think that except for functions where she must appear with him, Melania stays as far away from him as she possibly can. Who can blame her? If he lasts the full four years, we will be saying “Heil Trump”. And as for his health … I agree with you … I think it is only a matter of time until one of his fits of rage sends him into a stroke. He may think the rules of man do not apply to him, but the laws of nature still do and he cannot sign an executive order to change those.

      • My first boss used to remind me of a pressure cooker. He was a Type A to be sure. He’d shout at people and smoke cigars like mad. I told my mother, “He’s going to have a heart attack. Within a year of my getting another job, I was told he did have a big heart attack and died. DT is at an age when anything could happen. He shouldn’t have rages like that. I think he definitely is aging fast. Melania on the other hand always seems calm and will probably live long past him. —- Suzanne

        • You are quite right … when he rants, he looks like he is about to burst at the seams! I’m surprised he hasn’t already had a stroke or heart attack. I have felt sorry for Melania a time or two, but frankly, she knew what she was getting into and I suspect married him for one reason only, which was obviously NOT his charm! 🙂

  3. Jill, I think it is in the narcissist’s DNA to be insecure. Since Trump is the most narcissistic person I have witnessed, he must be the most insecure. He needs to be reminded the election is over and he is President, so he inherits the baton. Comparing himself to HRC is irrelevant. Keith

    • On this we agree. It is also interesting to note that of late I keep hearing him comment “I’m not going to own it”. Well who the heck else is going to??? He wants all the perks but none of the responsibility. It is time he take some, but I’d prefer he just be gone, for he is NOT a good person and the more the walls begin closing in on him, the more dangerous he will become, I think.

  4. What amazes me the most, I confess, is that he has been in office 6 months and STILL has not figured out that he actually needs to (and should) learn stuff in order to do the job he is in (for example, maybe learn what is actually in the wealthcare bill instead of supporting it, I mean calling it “mean”, I mean saying that it’s full of great stuff, I mean telling Senate to move on and repeal the old…), rather than just smiling at the camera as he signs some executive order that means essentially nothing, or sitting in big trucks on the White House lawn, or spending every weekend golfing and engaging in photo ops. A complete buffoon in the Reality show called POTUS.

    • I agree with all you say … he has done nothing of any use, but I think he seems to see his job as a public relations position whereby all he has to do is spout rhetoric and be seen by us, the lower peons. I am glad he feels so insecure … he should, for he is doing a lousy job … but it also frightens me, for a trapped animal is a dangerous animal.

      • Uneasy is the head that wears the crown. It’s nothing to do with insecurity it’s just part of the battle to make the top. The head of the herd has to constantly watch for contesting rivals in the animal kingdom he may have to use physical violence to maintain his position , but in the human world he uses whatever he can lay his hands on. It the case of Mr Trump he will stop at nothing the sign of a good businessman. Mr Putin is a very similar character that is why there is a mutual liking between them. Such men will rule the world given the chance they have done it before they could do it again.

  5. Very nicely put … He still feels that has not really “won”, probably partly because he knows it is true and partly because no one really accepts him as president. … This man really is an ordeal.

  6. It really does speak volumes about how shallow Trump’s world really is!
    The business of politics and governing society has become a giant soap opera fit only for the likes of ‘The Jerry Springer Show.’ 😠

  7. Your post has just made me realise something pretty shocking ~ President Trump, Donald, is a deeply insecure person. I believe that deep down he is afraid of something ~ some nameless dread has a hold on his psyche. I believe that he is also paranoid and has a persecution complex.
    He would also seem to have more character defects than most sane people.
    Mr Trump would seem to be a deeply flawed individual, with serious personality problems.
    How could you guys elect a man like this to be the so called ‘leader of the free world’?
    Ahhh Jill, at least there is one sane voice talking softly in the wilderness.
    Much love to you. ❤ ❤ ❤

    • Yes, he is indeed paranoid … he sees enemies everywhere he turns, whether real or imagined. As to how we could elect such a person? I’ve been trying to figure that one out since last November and am still scratching my head over it. If I EVER figure it out, I’ll let you know. :/ Many thanks for calling me the “sane voice” … sometimes I wonder. Such as today when I put the laundry detergent in the freezer! Sigh.

      Love ‘n hugs, Jack! ❤
