Despite most supporters of Donald Trump viewing him as some “tough-talking, confident alpha male,” he’s nothing of the sort. In fact, he’s quite possibly the most fragile, insecure, thin-skinned individual I’ve ever laid my eyes on. Someone who’s so mentally weak that, months after last year’s election, he handed out copies of the 2016 electoral map to journalists and has a folder of positive things people are saying about him delivered to him twice a day.
He’s a sad, sad little man.
Wednesday provided yet another perfect example of what a pathetically weak person Trump is when he sent out this tweet:
Rather than putting pressure on the businesspeople of the Manufacturing Council & Strategy & Policy Forum, I am ending both. Thank you all!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 16, 2017
Far from the worst thing Trump’s ever tweeted, that tweet showcases what an insecure, pathological-lying mental infant Trump truly is.
It reminded me of an episode of The Office where Steve Carrell’s character “Michael Scott” fires a new transfer just after they told him they could no longer work for him. Feeling slighted that someone wouldn’t want to work for him, “Scott’s” entire demeanor instantly changed. That’s when he told the newly-transferred salesman that he couldn’t quit — because he was fired!
Well, that’s exactly what this tweet from Trump was.
Since CEOs were fleeing Trump’s “Manufacturing Council” and “Strategy and Policy Forum,” with very few likely eager to take their place, Trump really had no choice but to essentially dissolve the groups.
In fact, if you read the statement put out collectively by these individuals, it’s abundantly clear that, while Trump agreed to disband these groups, it was their idea — not his:

Yet if you look at Trump’s tweet, he’s clearly trying to portray this latest public embarrassment as some sort of “strong decision” he made when the truth of the matter is, he had no choice. Many of the key CEOs involved had announced their departure, while citing his pathetic response to the violence caused by white supremacists, the KKK, and Nazis as reasons why they could no longer be associated with Trump’s administration.
Trump was facing a no-win situation of his own making.
With more members of these groups almost certainly set to leave them, he would have had to deal with handling questions concerning more individual resignation letters, while suffering the humiliation of trying to replace those who had left at a time when filling those spots might have been nearly impossible.
This, of course, would have made Trump look incredibly weak. Well, at least weaker than he already does.
It’s not a good look for a “president,” especially one who champions himself some sort of “genius businessman,” to have a bunch of big-time CEOs walk away from working with you, while others reject your offer to take their place.
Like nearly everything else with Trump, this was another perfect example where he was clearly trying to portray himself as some “strong, decisive leader,” but the truth is, he’s nothing more than an insecure, weak imbecile who’s trying to hide the fact that the people involved in these two groups no longer wanted anything to do with him or the comments he made on Saturday and Tuesday that were cheered and applauded by white nationalists, David Duke, Nazis, and the KKK.
