Does Trump Want The World To Burn?


President Donald J. Trump loves being in the spotlight. Trump yearns for the media’s attention. He is the moth to the flame. Because the attraction is unyielding, the president seeks out ways to bring himself glory through being the hero of the hour.

In a series of tweets tweeted to his Twitter account, beginning with one that addresses the Iranian leadership’s apparent lack of understanding of the words “nice” and compassion,” the president openly berates the foreign power for daring to defy him.

Considering how children are being treated at the United States Mexico border, Trump has a real nerve to use the words “nice” and compassion.” Even though being nice and having compassion for anyone is not within the president’s wheelhouse, that’s an entirely different story.

At the beginning of the Thursday episode of Buzz Burbank News & Comment, host Michael J. Elston gave a detailed description detailing an FBI profile of an arsonist firefighter.

He’s the firefighter and the arsonist … About 100 fires are set by arsonists who are also firefighters. Arsonists are usually white men who come from a bad home life, specifically having a hostile father and an overly protective mother, according to the FBI profile. The arsonist has an abnormal sexual attraction to in many cases. The arsonist gets off on watching stuff burn, but in many cases, it’s just the thrill of the blaze and the power it carries. The arsonist firefighter has one or more of these qualities and one other personality disorder: Hero Syndrome. They get off on setting fires and they get off on putting them out. Ladies and gentlemen, the President of the United States.

Setting the World on Fire…

Like the firefighter that wants the local community to see them for the hero they apparently are, the president orders an attack on Iran and changes his mind at the last possible moment. With only ten minutes to go, Trump reverses course on the attack. This is the same week as the mass deportation sweep and changes his mind at the last minute. In both instances, the president sets a metaphorical fire and then takes the credit for putting that fire.

The order to attack Iran, like the mass deportation order, came from Trump himself. Because Trump is the one orchestrating these terrible things, one cannot praise him for putting the fire out. He’s the one that set the fire.

Because of Trump’s idiotically dangerous policies, the Iran’s Supreme Leader has said that the door to diplomacy is permanently closed. If Trump had not pulled these United States out of the Iran Nuclear Deal, what we are seeing playing out between the two leaders would not be transpiring.

The metaphorical fires Trump set earlier this week are nothing more than poor attempts to distract people from what is playing out on Capitol Hill. Such reversals will not fully distract everyone from the congressional investigations.

Final Thoughts…

Why do Trump’s supporters not see what is plainly visible? Trump has an unusually estranged non-existent relationship with the truth because recognising it is too uncomfortable for the president. Even if Trump ultimately faces the music for his behaviour, the president’s supporters will have none of it. Because he is their man with a plan, Trump’s supporters either do not see the president for the psychopath he is or simply do not care. Time and again, Trump creates disaster after disaster, only to change his mind at the last minute. His deplorable behaviour is more than readily apparent to anyone willing to see it.

Much of the population see Trump for the person he is. Consequently, as a result, Trump wants to watch the world burn. Even though it’s fiction, the point Alfred Pennyworth (Michael Caine) makes to Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) in the 2008 film The Dark Knight is pertinent.

… some men aren’t looking for anything logical, like money. They can’t be bought, bullied, reasoned or negotiated with. Some men just wanna watch the world burn.

Trump is that bandit. The president, like the bandit, “can’t be bought, bullied, reasoned or negotiated with.” Any attempt to negotiate with such an individual will only fan the flames of the fire. Unlike the bandit, Trump wants the world to recognise him as the hero he sees himself being. Trump is incorrigible.
