Donald Trump is certainly uber wealthy. Trump is also a bonafide jerk and a bloviating out of control carnival barker who has yet to master Emotional Intelligence (EI).
Emotional Intelligence (EI) is not a means to manipulation. Emotional Intelligence is a key for its user to create positive movement in the work force, at home, and just about anywhere else one might find interaction. EI is characterized by the awareness, control, and expression of one’s emotions while simultaneously acting in a judicial and empathetic manner towards others.
....perceiving emotion, using emotions to help one think, understanding emotions, and managing emotions.It would take a person completely void of EI to utter this:
Trump retorts McCain's "crazies" comment.
"He's a war hero because he was captured," Trump told the crowd, before stating, "I like people who weren't captured." Not stopping there, Trump made it a point to note that McCain "graduated last in his class at Annapolis (Naval Academy)."
Well, you say anyone who is a multi billionaire needs not care about her/his emotions and how their psyche affects others. A typical thought in support of uber wealthy CEOs and business owners who earn lavishly while viewing the population as a form of Hunger Game (Tm). You might think, as some have rationalized with Rush Limbaugh: "Limbaugh is an entertainer." Of course, like Limbaugh the entertainer entertains those who find her/his craft entertaining. In the the nascent case of Trump, he joins Limbaugh in feeding racism to Americans who are open to
the their social cancer.
People who have no control over their emotions and who "entertain" from a platform of bigotry and racism are a dangerous problem. They entertain without any regard for the nefarious aspects of what emanates from their mouths. Either they do not care or they fail to consider how their spoken word can reach back into their pasts for credibility killing information.
Donald Trump is the penultimate example. After Limbaugh, Trump lashes out at anyone or anything that doesn't neatly fold into his reality paradigm or anyone who disagrees with his paradigm and dares speak their concerns publicly. He prides himself at going on stage unscripted (without teleprompter) with non-stop chatter. He fails to perform any degree of self analysis via viewing his on camera non-verbals, his "excuse me" when challenged and his often disjointed thought processes. His performances are reality TV like reprehensible. In many ways he reminds of a very wealthy Sarah Palin (albeit better educated).
Better educated, but an educated fools is little different than an under-educated ninny who was given a platform by the same political party that now has Trump roving around like a Frankenstein Monster. The fabled monster eventually killed its creator. In 2008, Palin surely wrecked havoc in the minds of some who might have voted for McCain had he chosen different in 2008; thus metaphorically killing her GOP creator. Trump is killing his creator with the same level of thoroughness.
Trump attack John McCain over the latter part of last week. While, I have little regard for John McCain, I respect his military service to the nation and appreciate his life post war theater POW (replete with torture and refusal to give-in for early release from North Viet Nam's Hanoi Hilton). Trumps retort to McCain statement "releasing the crazies" was an unarguable case of loss of emotion accompanied by diarrhea of the mouth.
"He's a war hero because he was captured," Trump told the crowd, before stating, "I like people who weren't captured." Not stopping there, Trump made it a point to note that McCain "graduated last in his class at Annapolis (Naval Academy)."Basically, the nation and the world saw and heard: uber wealthy plutocrat > absent thought > w/ lack of EI + vindictive psyche = oral diarrhea.
Trump ignored a history some of us recall, oh so well.
To this six years later.....
Trump is no "Senators son", but he was handed life with a silver spoon. The carnival barker also did not think about a past he, Dick Cheney and Mitt Romney share. GOP elites. He allowed his oratory to reach into an area that he should have left neatly folded into his billionaire closet.
Donald Trump received five deferments from military service during the Viet Nam Era.
The following link to a 2011 The Smoking Gun piece navigates to a must read piece including actual images of Trumps deferment records (left margin).
Trump is obviously without any level of EI.
