Even the traditional and brain-dead campaign of the Democrats did not pick up on Donald Trump's statement that he "could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and not lose voters." Yes, it is outrageous, but it is worse than that. It confirms the lawlessness of Donal Trump. He does not even consider the consequences of his statements, let alone what it reflects of his true nature.
Trump Fantasizes Himself as a Murderer
Forget about the consequences. The simple fact that Trump's continuous and desperate search for outrage has led him to fantasize about himself killing a passer-by by shooting him with a gun in the middle of New York tells us so much about the "new normal" world of the Gross Obstructive Party: guns are here to kill indiscriminately.
Psychologically, it also shows the mind of a sociopath - one that feels no guilt for hurting others. All Trump cares about is keeping his electorate intact.Sociopathy or antisocial personality disorder is defined as mental health condition in which a person has a long-term pattern of manipulating, exploiting, or violating the rights of others.
Trump Assumes he is Above the Law
It did not occur to him that such an act would immediately provoke a police arrest and he would not only be a killer, but jailed for murder. Does he really believe that because he is a Presidential Candidate, he can shoot someone without consequences? Is this the lawless President that Republicans want to elect? Imagine a photo of Trump arraigned, handcuffed and brought to jail. Imagine the judge indicting him for manslaughter or murder. Does he really believe that the American people would not unanimously turn against him? Did he ever consider that he might spend the next 20 years in jail? Is he so entitled that he truly thinks he is above the law?
Trump Would Not Lose One Supporter, he Would Lose Them All
As to the idea that his electorate would follow him as their candidate from jail, it emphasizes how egotistic the man has become. He is a madman, suffering from manic phases, and living on the worst XXIst century drug: the media syndrome. The media has become his free campaign platform - he does not even need to spend any of his billions. He is the show as he was on television.
However, sooner or later, his manic phase will fall into a depressive one (that even the drugs he might be taking cannot help) and he will blow up. My only hope is that it will happen before the primaries. If not, it could be the end of the US democracy, (an institution that he does not care about). Trump is using and manipulating media but is fundamentally against "freedom of the press" and the Constitution.
In jail for murder, Trump would lose his entire electorate. Am I in utopia? Doesn't it look like a dream? He, himself has created the image of Trump the killer.
