I understand human nature and what is going on. You don't not need to try and explain anything to me. The system is Democracy and it is not working correctly.
    Chet; sorry then you did not read what Jared and I wrote. If the "system" is just run by "one" party as well billionaires and bankers/generals it is no longer an Democracy. It is Democratic, if all levels of "classes" are involved and have the same influence and say in any government. Thus if "voting" is restricted as Trump wants, as well having an 1800's Electoral College then you have no longer an Democracy. Indeed we are now moving towards an "totallerian" state

    "The mind of Donald Trump"

    He has been the president for a month. He is planning a rally for his 2020 reelection event / fund. This mad evil genius is going to rally the troops and get them to send him money at the same time. He will be telling them the mindless rhetoric that is all they're asking for to begin with. Rally season 1 month in. Someone wake Donna Brazile, hurry. That was sarcasm but if we want to lock in another loss, proceed like before.

    I expect him to double down on everything he has already said, and will not concede anything. I would not be surprised if he has some new hot button terms\labels and start getting personal again with certain people\companies\organizations that he feels threaten by. He'll likely frame things (ie ... ties to the Russian) as a conspiracy against the him and\or American people.

    And of course he'll talk tough and say something outrageous like "Waterboarding is good for America, and I will make waterboarding legal again!". But nobody, including Trump, knows what he going to say before he says it.... Trump truly has become Howard Beale. Remember, Howard Beale had become seriously mentally ill :)

    Yes, I put this under the "mind" of Donald Trump, however I like to address his "working method".

    Let's start with the following: The guy never had an real job or was trained to work in any job; he inherited most of his money; thus never learned to work in any job which requires punctuality, neatness, nor discipline ( he hates discipline because he left the military (school?) in an hurry, because he did not like to be given orders) If you look at his desk; it is an big mess. So he never learned to be organized or follow things in order of importance or sequence. He's an totally "chaotic" person because of his upbringing.

    Again something what the "vetting" missed. Unbelievable what an ignorant stupid country.

    MSN: New York Times: March 21, 2017: Why Letting Go, for Trump, Is No Small or Simple Task

    The New York Times discusses what Trump is obsessed about and why he can't let go.

    1. His aides say Trump is driven by a need to prove his legitimacy as president to the many critics who deem him an unworthy victor citing Hillary Clinton’s three-million-vote win in the popular vote.

    2. Fighting back is an important part of the president’s self-image. Trump's two most influential role models in his life preached the need for relentless self-promotion and the waging of total war against anyone perceived as a threat.

    Tim O’Brien, author of “TrumpNation" says “He's been doing this kind of thing for the last 45 years....He’s deeply, deeply insecure about how he’s perceived in the world, about whether or not he’s competent and deserves what he’s gotten. There’s an unquenchable thirst for validation and love. That’s why he can never stay quiet, even when it would be wise strategically or emotionally to hold back.”

    3. Diversion is an important motive in his ability to change the subject by attacking Obama and floating unsubstantiated theories. In my view, it is consistent with his can artist modus operandi. It defines him.

    4. Trump continues to act as he does with Tweets and statements because no one can stop him. The two advisors influential enough to change his behavior, Steve Bannon and Gary Cohen, are mostly disinclined to do so.

    None of this should come as a surprise. As many politically astute people predicted last year, the way Donald Trump conducts his campaign is the way he'll conduct his presidency. So far those predictions are holding true. You cannot change the brain of Donald Trump. What you saw then is what we see now...and what we'll all get for the next four years. Get used to it.

    Elections have consequences.

    Good stuff....Man, it really hard to accept him a president because of all those personality flaws, but its also those same personality flaws that has made him a billionaire (with significant amount of debt) and was able to convince just enough voters to get elected. While he is clearly not running a financial Ponzi scheme, how he minuplates\BS people is a bit similar because once they start questioning inconsistencies, he convinces them to relax and accept that everything is under control, and mixes just enough fear into it that they don't want to ask questions or challenge him out of concern he'll turn on them.

    He is a fat idiot. He is a child . A pathological lier. A coward and a thief. This is a person who has no idea the danger he is even in. The Russian mob does not play games. Flynn is going to talk. They have him and so is Manafort because they have him too. The drump is not a smart person , he is incredibly stupid. Every day he proves his stupidity . He proves his incompetence. It's like he has no shame . He thinks he can do anything he wants like laws don't apply to him.but the wheels of Justice e keep turning. That is what makes America strong.

    Our laws make us strong. They make us equal . Right now , evil has infiltrated our government. Wat Hing it unrvel and turn upon itself will be a sad thing to behold. We should learn from it. I hope we do.

    Trump may understand the Russians better than you give him credit. With 1000s nasty tweets and stump insults, Trump has never once said anything bad about the Russians. Very, very strange because the Russians are such an easy political target that his base would love to hear him mock and insult. Why are they soooo off limits?

    I suspect he knows the Russians have intel on Trump that he never wants to ever see the light of day; tax returns, large payments to elected officials in foreign countries, shady contracts, mutual business ventures, other connections to questionable people, etc. I have no doubt that he'll never trash talk the Russians unless they make a first strike on him by revealing what they know.

    Its easy to imagine Trump getting a private communication from the Russians that goes something like this: "We look forward to having a very close relationship with you. Our comprehensive intel about you reveals you are a very smart business man, and we agree on many many things, including that private business matters should remain private between loyal friends and partners. We value loyality and we don't harm anyone who remains our loyal friend."

    wwjd -- I think you have summed up the situation nicely. Trump himself may not be able to recognize how precarious his situation is, but he still has some pretty smart lawyers. And now that he'll have Ivanka close by his side in the White House, she will provide additional cover for him. In the end, Ivanka may be the only person he really trusts as he burns more bridges.

    Not sure he even trusts her. The end game for guys like this is retreating into themselves trusting no one. Not that he is there now by any stretch but I could see that happening. If he is not careful the bunker awaits him. And while he does have good lawyers the world he now inhabits isn't the world of scamming investors in some property or browbeating building inspectors. The danger is far more real.

    I doubt if Ivanka can repair the past; also she can't babysit him all day,unless he sleeps or takes his making "happy pills" and she sings an luluby song to make him sleep instead of "tweet"

    He is dismantling our government. The state Dept is no more. Every person he nominated processes hatred toward the agenda they now head. Their intention is to destroy every agency weaken our government and make it collapse. I am convinced he intends to take over and eliminate both house both parties and all elections.

    I know it sounds crazy . When he stated that pretty soon there will only be one party , he did not mean the Republican party . He meant his party. The new Nazi party. Hell his cabinet features openly Nazi people.

    Now general Mattis is not playing ball. He knows what the drump is doing. The military will not be a part of it. Hopefully the republicans will see the writing on the wall and work to end this crazyness.

    The State Department is still there. We may not like the person in charge of it, but there are thousands of career officials who have been through this dog and pony show before. I also think it's important to remind ourselves that more than enough Republicans in the House and Senate have come forward and said that Donald's budget is dead on arrival.

    No, his cabinet doesn't feature openly Nazi people. He has an adviser who is a Nazi sympathizer. Is that nuts? Yes. A million times yes. But advisers are different than cabinet members.

    This hyperbole only turns people who could potentially be swayed to revolt against Donald and the Republican Party away. We have to learn to fight with reason and facts. I know it's tempting to use the same vitriol that Republicans have used against liberals, but facts and reason trump (no pun intended) hysteria.

    It's almost like we are living in the Twilight Zone when the Department of Defense might wind up being the only thing preventing Donald from getting us in another disastrous war.

    Do you literally believe that, or are you just ticked off and the post is venting about all the crap that is going on?

    I agree with Maindawg about everything said. This administration has bat shit crazy potential but sadly I believe he will be more patient to enhance his personal signature on the job. I hope more realize the truth about the issues and continue to demonstrate or protest. The only thing to do now is try to get dem/progr. Persons elected in '18. Then hope or pray for Impeachment. I know Pence is bad but 1 idiot to be eliminated at a time.
