Every once in a while, when Trump says something particularly crazy, I fall into a pretty common trap of thinking that eventually people will come around and see he's full of shit.

That doesn't last long, because I know a secret that I'm going to tell you here in a minute.

Today the president announced to reporters that he was taking the anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine — you know, the pills that have already killed at least one guy and been proven to cause serious issues in people with heart problems. He went on to say that doctors who warn against taking the drug preventatively for COVID-related illness should be ignored because they're "probably Democrats."

He's not taking it, of course. He's not for the same reason that the Fox News hosts who are helping covidiots DEMAND that the world resume — that the TGI Friday's chain unshutters their venerable houses of jalapeño poppers and Long Island Iced Teas — are themselves working from home and planning to do so for at least another month.

Why say it? By linking the (safe) advice to NOT take the drug to "probably Democrats" he ensures that his voters will WANT to take it just like him, only he's not, and they'll die.

The answer is actually simple, and it's part of what I want you guys to understand about not just Trump himself, but also why Trump voters will always be Trump voters.

Maybe you don't quite know what a narcissist is.

A narcissist isn't just someone who thinks highly of themselves, or it would be limited to those who had a reason to. It would be something more akin to conceit or arrogance or pride, but it's not.

Narcissism requires irrational thought: You are not just great, you are superior to others in such a way that you feel like others are almost alien, they're so unlike you, and that you have a claim on some sort of privilege that others don't (and shouldn't) have, and that others are always looking for a way to gain the advantages you have or to unseat you from your position of superiority.

Narcissism, therefore, is not just the conceit of good looks or the arrogance of intelligence, but almost an ongoing thesis of your own superiority — a SET of beliefs that inform your very existence.

But maybe you don't know what a white supremacist is, either.

A white supremacist isn't just someone who says the n-word, or it would be limited to cruel, uncouth loudmouths who like to "stir the pot," as it were. It would be something more akin to mean-spiritedness or revenge-seeking or the error of uncorrected upbringing, but it's not.

White supremacy requires irrational thought: You are not just great, you are superior to others in such a way that you feel like others are almost alien, they're so unlike you, and that you have a claim on some sort of privilege that others don't (and shouldn't) have, and that others are always looking for a way to gain the advantages you have or to unseat you from your position of superiority.

Did you catch that copy and paste?

Narcissism and white supremacy aren't identical, of course, nor would I even remotely erase the experiences of either POC who have suffered at the hands of white supremacists or abuse victims ravaged by narcissism.

Each is felt by their purveyors as an embodiment of their relative position to others. It can't be reduced to hate or arrogance because each is manifested as a general sense of one's relative position in society and the entitlement to a better position than others.

Narcissism is not just the guy who one-ups all of your anecdotes any more than white supremacy is only people who would totally be okay with slavery if it existed right now. Each is far more personal, intense, and pervasive than those simple explanations.

Narcissists and racists ride parallel lines in a lot of ways: Each has no empathy for those outside the group they deem superior (the self or whites), each sees themselves as exempt from rules that should only apply to others, each believes that they are entitled to admiration without objective merit — the narcissist thinks you should also believe they are superior, and the white supremacist believes that whites should get the most, and most positive, representation in the media and among their social groups.

Each sociopathy is accompanied by gaslighting and the minimization of the abuser's effect on others: Both the racist and the narcissist must continue to believe that you also believe as they do in their superiority, or the illusion — delusion — that holds it all together is gone.

So. All of that describes Trump and also a good portion of his supporters, who are far more numerous than you're even admitting to yourself RIGHT NOW, even though I'm pointing it out and you just read a great description of them.

But why won't they turn away? Well, part of it is the delusions of narcissism and racism — some of his base, too much of it, actually is like him and they honor and glorify the self that they see in his overt, open cruelty.

Others, unfortunately, are victims of a similar but less harmful but still freaking harmful mindset that just wants to be doing better than other people, relatively speaking.

There have, of course, been studies that showed a tremendous number of people, when polled, would rather make $50,000 a year if everyone else made $30,000 than to make $100,000 if everyone else was making $200,000. Objectively they would make more with the 100K salary, but they would take HALF that pay in order to be making more than everyone else.

Following Trump doesn't threaten his voters' relative position in society. He tells them every day they deserve it and are superior to everyone else, that literally no one else is to even be TRUSTED.

That's the kind of emotional and psychological reassurance that merely seeing him botch a response to a pandemic won't break. His awful behavior every single day isn't just not enough to make them think rationally and "come around" like liberals think they might — it's the incontrovertible proof that someone who objectively is not superior to anyone can not only be president but live out the narcissist's and racist's dream: Unmitigated access to advantages and privilege that no one else gets, with no repercussions. Absolute authority of your own beliefs.

Trump literally COULD shoot someone in the middle of 5th Avenue and not lose these voters. He owns them now. It's time to stop telling ourselves that reason will prevail, because his followers are completely irrational.

Powerful message today.


Heather Cox Richardson 9 hrs ·

May 20, 2020 (Wednesday)

There was one vignette today that captured a lot more than its immediate subject.

Trump took to twitter to oppose what he said was Michigan's recent mailing of absentee ballots to the state's voters. "This was done illegally and without authorization by a rogue Secretary of State. I will ask to hold up funding to Michigan if they want to go down this Voter Fraud path!" the president tweeted.

But Michigan's secretary of state responded: "Hi! I also have a name, it's Jocelyn Benson. And we sent applications, not ballots. Just like my GOP colleagues in Iowa, Georgia, Nebraska and West Virginia." When Trump deleted his first inaccurate tweet about ballots and corrected it in a second similar tweet, she responded: "Every Michigan registered voter has a right to vote by mail. I have the authority & responsibility to make sure that they know how to exercise this right- just like my GOP colleagues are doing in GA, IA, NE, and WV. Also, again, my name is Jocelyn Benson."

Later today, Trump tried to threaten Nevada in a similar way. "State of Nevada 'thinks' that they can send out illegal vote by mail ballots, creating a great Voter Fraud scenario for the State and the U.S. They can't! If they do, 'I think' I can hold up funds to the State. Sorry, but you must not cheat in elections."

There is a lot encompassed in these tweets. Trump is running behind presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden in virtually every poll, and Michigan is crucial to his reelection prospects. But his problem is not mail-in ballots. Currently, the states of Colorado, Hawaii, Oregon, Washington, and Utah, as well as various counties in California, all have vote by mail. A mail-in system creates about a 2% increase in voting, but does not appear to benefit one party over another. Neither does it create measurable voter fraud, which remains vanishingly rare in our system. Nonetheless, Trump has concluded that the Republicans should "fight very hard" against mail-in voting, despite the coronavirus, because it "doesn't work out well for Republicans."

If this exchange of tweets between Trump and Benson shows that Trump is worried about his reelection prospects, it also reveals the sort of quid pro quo that was at the heart of the Ukraine scandal. His threat to withhold monies from Michigan and Nevada until they do what he wants echoes his request of Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky that he announce an investigation into Joe Biden's son before getting the military support Ukraine so desperately needed. It reiterates his view of governance as merely a series of deals with a winner and a loser, a zero-sum game, rather than as an arrangement that should benefit everyone.

That being said, it is not at all clear what monies Trump was talking about. As Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar put it, "Last time I checked, the Constitution gives Congress the power to appropriate money, not you. We provided $400 million to help states protect voters from this virus. A bill you signed! You can't take money back because you think you should be the only one allowed to vote by mail."

Klobuchar is referring to the fact that Trump, himself, along with Vice President Mike Pence, Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump, and other senior members of the administration, all vote by mail. Nonetheless, Republicans are pushing the idea that mail-in voting is an attempt of Democrats to commit fraud. Texas is in the midst of a nasty legal fight over whether voters can mail-in ballots because of the coronavirus. Opponents are happy for older people-- who skew Republican--to vote by mail, but say that fear of Covid-19 is not a physical condition that would justify a mail-in ballot; it is simply an "emotional" fear and thus no excuse for wanting to avoid public polling places. The question is now before the Texas courts.

So Trump is worried about his reelection prospects and eager to attack mail-in voting that pretty clearly does not give Democrats any particular leg up, raising the possibility that he is setting himself up to accuse Michigan and Nevada of rigging the system if he loses in November. He has accused Democrats of cheating since 2016, and his language on that front has ramped up dramatically lately as his polls have fallen.

And yet, Michigan's secretary of state called him out. Insisting on the reality that belies his narrative, she repeats: "My name is Jocelyn Benson."

From Moby Dick's famous beginning "Call me Ishmael" to the fear in the Harry Potter books of calling the evil Voldemort by name, invoking someone's name makes them a power to be reckoned with. In this case, a woman doing her job, insisting on reality that interrupts Trump's narrative, repeatedly demands that he use her name.

It's a powerful moment. At a time when senators and government officials appear to have ceded their power to Trump, it is ordinary Americans like Jocelyn Benson, ordinary women like Jocelyn Benson, who are standing up to him. "Hi!" she wrote. "I also have a name."

Indeed she does. That's exactly what the president is afraid of.

"If someone is wearing a mask, they're not doing it to represent what political party they're in, or what candidates they support.
