Hey, I got an idea. Let’s start a real resistance movement. Not some inane marching for women’s rights alongside Harvey Weinstein and stuff of that nature but real resistance. I propose that we resist Trump’s attempts to colonize our minds.
Let’s pledge to sit out two thirds of his scandals. That means only learning about and / or reacting to one in three. The remaining two, the moment they begin, turn off, plug out, scroll down, read a book or take a nap instead. Alternatively, you can do two weeks of no Trump drama and then a week back on the dope.
Of course, some are so hooked, they’d have to go cold-turkey.
People have been saying Trump is a narcissist. Believe me as somebody who was tortured by a pathological narcissist, the only way to avoid being hurt is withdraw the attention the second a narcissistic meltdown begins. You can actually end up being almost kind of safe around a malignant narcissist but only if you remember to quit the game the second it begins.
