Thomas: Frontline had a biopic last night on the lives of Trump and Clinton. Trump is quoted as saying that he is still the first grade kid from the 50's in a man's body. Emotionally he is still functioning as a child. That's why he can't admit a mistake or apologize for anything. That was reinforced by his father Fred Trump who treated the kids like widgets. There was lots of ridicule and no praise from the father. I now understand how Trump can function without compassion for other human beings. Compassion was psychologically beaten out of him by his warped father. Compassion was seen as weakness.
