Donald's mother was quite sick with severe osteoporosis and other conditions, but I remember reference to her breaking bones often. His father ignored her and she was left disregarded in her suffering. Donald was taught that. When Donald's older brother, Mary's father, was dying in the hospital, their father told everyone is was serious but not to be concerned. Donald went to watch movies that night and not one member of the family went to the hospital while his older brother died.

    Their family will not ever acknowledge any type of vulnerability, illness, suffering. Everything has to be controlled and FANTASTIC to a pathological, narcissistic degree. He had no psychological framework to address the reality of a pandemic. They believe that appearances are reality, so you creative positive strong images no matter what. Donald can hardly speak the word, "therapeutics". They have zero psychological capacity to process any sort of vulnerability, even in the guise of heroism. They cannot acknowledge its existence. It's morbid, but fascinating in its extremity.
    Apparently Fred Drumpf really did a number on the family -- he seemed like a quite narcissistic and borderline sociopathic. Absolute despite any display of weakness. Supposedly he took favor to Donald because he'd molded most in his image, whereas his brother Fred Trump Jr seemed to be less equipped to handle that more ruthless, emotionless approach and pretty much drunk himself to death.

    I hadn't really thought about the psychological implication of growing up that way manifesting itself into toxic positivity, which makes sense, but now I recall when his brother Robert died months back I can't really ever recall him speaking too much about it in any sort of really emotion filled way. It seemed like it all kinda happened at one -- suddenly he was sick, then dead, then everyone just sort of moved on with business as usual. I think I remember Trump saying a few positive words about his brother but absolutely nothing from his children at all about their uncle.

    Clearly Fred loved his children in his own twisted way, which is why he bailed Donnie out several times, but he did an absolute number on his children which seems to have been passed long to the next generation of Trumps.

    My impression is that this is core to why he resonates with a lot of the American public. The prosperity gospel crowd is all about toxic positivity. Strangely enough, even the modern day cults tend to be about "blab it and grab it", "believe and achieve", pyramid financial schemes to get rich and revel in toxic positivity. It is a denial culture that wants everything quickly and denies all trouble and wrongdoing. Trump's family appears like they have everything - money, the women are all models, Trump has a sexual history with porn stars, etc. and they spout words like WONDERFUL, FANTASTIC. It is a lazy version of the American Dream complete with drive-through, supersized, and double fries.

    Turns out a lot DO want to be American Idiots...
    I am the Cat who walks by himself; and all places are alike to me...

    For the cat is cryptic,
    and close to strange things which men cannot see.
    He is the soul of antique Aegyptus,
    and bearer of tales from forgotten cities in Meroë and Ophir.
    He is the kin of the jungle’s lords,
    and heir to the secrets of hoary and sinister Africa.
    The Sphinx is his cousin, and he speaks her language;
    but he is more ancient than the Sphinx,
    and remembers that which she hath forgotten...

    I wish I came up with this, but we really do need to draft Matthew Lesko to run in 2020. Trump would have no chance.
