gangsum: Trump never offers real answers, ever, because Trump is a toxic blend of Barnum and bully. If you’re a good gullible mark, he’s your best friend. But if you catch on to the con, then he starts to Gaslight. Ask Trump a question and he’ll lie without batting an eye. Call him a liar and he’ll declare himself “truthful to a fault.” Confront him with contradictory evidence and he’ll shrug and repeat the fib. Maybe he’ll change the subject. But he’ll never change the lie. Gaslighting is a technique abusers use: Through manipulation and outright lies, they so disorient their target that the person (or in this case, the country) is left defenseless Sociopaths frequently use Gaslighting tactics. Sociopaths consistently transgress social mores, break laws, and exploit others, but typically, are also charming and convincing liars who consistently deny wrongdoing.
