He probably thinks it's a sex doll.

His medial staff is probably giving him something and telling him that it is hydroxychloroquine, just to keep him off their backs.
He wanted Lysol in his body so bad that they probably told him hydroxychloroquine is a combination of hydrogen peroxide and chlorine bleach.  :lol:

Why is this miscreant so hung up on criticizing Obama?  Is that ploy some kind of excuse or possible diminishment  for his ineptitude?

I agree. I've read a few of his ramblings and they always confuse me. He tries to sound intelligent, and maybe he comes across that way to his voters, but not to me.

I think he is jealous of Obama's eight year run at the White House. Maybe he realizes that his term is about to end possibly and he's trying to somehow put Mr. Obama's person to make him seem like the better president.

This is probably making Trump furious!

Trump is refusing to unveil Obama's portrait at the White House, breaking a 40-year tradition.

An article in Scientific American magazine examines the concept of "dark core" behavior.  Some people are wired to be assholes but the article does not use that word. There is what the investigators are calling the D factor . It describes certain behavioral habits that are typically displayed by said assholes.  In no case have they named names but the descriptions of the various quirks describe our glorious leader with certainty. 

It is an easy read and even has a simple assessment test that you can take for yourselves.

Try it, it is brainiac stuff of a sort.

I don't know how I missed this. Anyway, I read the article when it came out. It didn't surprise me but should have.

The only thing I have is that I have some agreement with #3, but it's more on the order of people pulling shit and getting popped for it. If they haven't pulled shit on the people around them, then I would say no. I worked with many people who exhibited these traits. I was more interested in the progress of science or the successful completion of a project, and these traits seem to stand in the way of that.
