Trump is a sadist

As of today's writing, October 1, 2019, I have never heard any of the talking heads on TV nor have I read in newspapers or magazines or on the Internet that the current president of the United States is a sadist.

Because I am convinced Donald Trump suffers from a severe form of Narcissistic Personality Disorder, it's not surprising that he lacks empathy, because that is a characteristic of what is called NPD.  But outright sadism is not a symptom of NPD.  Sadism is its own standalone mental condition and, needless to say, it is extremely bad.  Sadism is indisputably evil.  In fact, it is the very definition of evil.  Therefore, Donald Trump is the very definition of evil.

I don't understand why no one else, as far as I know, has made the observation that the president of the United States, Donald Trump, is a sadist.  Maybe it's because saying the American president is a sadist is so unthinkable.  Maybe it's because no one believes there's adequate proof to make such an extreme statement, but I do.  Let me list a few examples, in chronological order of their revelation, that, I think, prove Donald John Trump is a sadist.

But first let me compare a mere, if that's the right word, lack of empathy to outright sadism.  If you suffer from a lack of empathy then, first, I feel sorry for you, but, second, you are incapable of putting yourself in the shoes of someone who is suffering.  That's bad in any person, of course, but it's just, plain horrible in a U.S. president.

But as bad as a lack of empathy is, sadism is worse.  Sadists take pleasure in the suffering of others and wish to cause more.  The word "unthinkable" doesn't seem strong enough.

Here are some examples that prove Trump is a sadist.  I have no doubt there are more, but any one of these alone is sufficient proof, because there is no better explanation.

On approximately November 24, 2015, while he was still a candidate for the presidency, Trump mocked the disability of a reporter.  Trump actually made fun of a person's physical disability, something a well-reared five-year-old knows is unacceptable even to think of.  See a video clip HERE (which also mentions one of Trump's 12,000 lies so far, although to be fair that number of 12,000 is only since Trump was inaugurated; according to The Washington Post, the number has risen to over 16,000 during his first three years., which means the average is over 14 per day, 365 days a year.

There is no better explanation for such despicable behavior than that Trump is a sadist.  Perhaps worse, he clearly believed that at least some of the people in attendance at that campaign event, where he knew cameras and microphones were pointed at him, would applaud his mocking.

If I hadn't already (I had) thought Donald Trump was unsuited to be president of anything, this incident confirmed that conclusion.

For a period starting in April of 2018, Trump implemented a policy at the border between Mexico and the U.S. that caused children to be separated from their parents.  A five-year-old relies entirely on her parents, and she takes needed emotional sustenance from them.  Separating a child from her parents is unspeakably cruel, not only to those parents but of course to that child.  The result of such separation can do permanent damage to that child, including a potentially serious condition called Reactive Attachment Disorder, which I suspect Trump himself has; one of the symptoms of what's called RAD is, you guessed it, a lack of empathy.

When Rachel Maddow, who in my opinion is one of the best explainers of the news of the day and who rarely gets rattled, essayed to describe this cruel policy of Trump's, she actually broke down and couldn't finish.  See a startling video clip HERE and a blander follow-up video clip HERE.  June 6, 2020: There's a depressing follow-up, dated today, HERE, that further proves my point that Trump, not to mention some of his associates, is a sadist.

As I said before and will say again, that Trump is a sadist is the best explanation for such a policy.  Trump knew children would be separated from their parents because of his policy, which normal people would immediately reject as obviously unjustifiable, because he wanted to cause that pain.

In August of 2019 Trump's administration decided, with Trump's approval if he didn't initiate it, to prevent non-U.S. citizens with certain medical conditions from staying in the U.S.  Understand that these people are here in the U.S. for the purpose of receiving treatment that is keeping them alive, treatment that is unavailable in their home countries.  Said another way, and a way that True Trump Believers will somehow manage to disagree with, Trump wanted to commit murder, which is pretty darn close to the ultimate in sadism.  See video clip HERE.

As I have said, Trump's sadism is the best explanation for such a policy.

At one point in March of 2019, and maybe before and maybe still, Trump is said to have wanted people who were trying to cross the southern border into the United States to be shot in the legs "to slow them down."  People, not rabid coyotes or domesticated wild bear, but real, living people.

Also, he wanted, and maybe still does, to build trenches around his wall and stock those trenches with alligators or snakes.  Also, he wanted, and maybe still does, to electrify the top of his wall so as to electrocute people climbing it.  Also, he wanted and maybe still does, to top his wall with spikes to "pierce human flesh."  See a video clip HERE.

The only realistic explanation for such unimaginable cruelty, which Trump wants to cause, is sadism.

I repeat, who else thinks Trump, the president of the United States, is a sadist?
