Trump And Other Gaslighters/Narcissists Create Crises And Then Act Like They Solved Them

America, you've been conned.

Repeatedly.

Quote:
Trump is more frequently adding "Corrupt" to "Fake" when describing the news media. So in addition to claiming that the media have made stories up, Trump is now accusing them of receiving money or power in exchange for false stories.  This is a common tactic of gaslighters/narcissists in power — they will accuse any accurate media outlets as traitors to the country and its leader.  Gaslighters/narcissists particularly accuse those in the media of being corrupt or making up stories, and they will go after the media at a fever pitch.  For example, see the history of the Argentinean government going after Grupo Clarin.

In reaction to a previous tweet of Trump calling the media the "enemy of the people," Senator John McCain responded,

    If you want to preserve democracy as we know it, you have to have a free and many times adversarial press. And without it, I am afraid that we would lose so much of our individual liberties over time. That’s how dictators get started...They get started by suppressing free press. In other words, a consolidation of power. When you look at history, the first thing that dictators do is shut down the press.

And Trump is still focused on Obama.  Trump has been president since January 2017, and he has yet to let this go.  Gaslighters/narcissists will fabricate enemies in their minds — usually, anyone that they feel has criticized them, no matter how small the criticism.  The gaslighter/narcissist demands loyalty at all times, and anyone who dares critique the gaslighter/narcissist has hell to pay.  The gaslighter/narcissist will obsessively look for ways to take a perceived critic down.

Trump has manufactured crises time and time again and then tried to make himself look like the savior of that crisis.  Look closer at Trump's manufactured border crisis.  In reality, illegal border crossings have actually decreased in the U.S for 46 years.  He also created the crisis of the "criminal immigrant."   In reality, immigrants, illegal and legal, actually have a lower rate of criminal activity than citizens born in the U.S.
  

What is the cost of lies? It's not that we'll mistake them for the truth. The real danger is that if we hear enough lies, then we no longer recognize the truth at all. What can we do then? What else is left but to abandon the hope of truth and content ourselves instead with stories. In these stories it doesn't matter who the heroes are. All we want to know is who is to blame. - V. Legasov

trump is achieving the opposite - he is not suppressing the free press, he has encouraged countless new news agencies to prop up to report...

the mainstream media is operating on a 16th century model...they've hoped that all news could be filtered thru the AP...thru the lens of their radical bias...

bernie goldberg, of CBS, groundbreaking book Bias exposed the media in spades... there is no doubt what they were doing...

the fake news has not been suppressed, it has been exposed...and its opened the door to tens of thousands of real news sites...and its opened peoples eyes.

do a search on CNN fake news stories and there are scores of documented intentional misleading...

Trump doesn't hold a candle to mainstream media in their gaslighting narcissism. 

You have Jim Acosta, who refused to give up a white house microphone for other questioners, pushed away the hand of the staff member trying to switch the mic to someone else, and then tried to convince everyone who realized that he as being an obstinate jerk that they were the ones that were crazy and trying to squash the free press.

I mean, my gosh, this very article is a perfect example of the media doing what they accuse Trump of doing but blowing him out of the water in terms of the severity.  Seriously, they have Trump calling them out and claiming that they are reporting false information, and instead of supporting their claims and pointing out his errors, they portray him as a dictator.  Media figures regularly call him mentally ill.

Again, this very article is gaslighting people into thinking that the idea of criminality or crisis with regard to illegal immigration is a new thing that was brought about by Trump.  Are they kidding?

Then go back to the campaign and all the gaslighting that went on early in the administration.  Before the election you were treated like a nut if you thought Trump had a shot at winning early on and as completely non-serious if you even gave Trump better than a 20% chance of winning ON ELECTION EVE.  Nate Silver was attacked for this very thing.

And early in the administration, with the help of many politicians and bureaucrats, they incessantly pushed this Russia collusion narrative and treated anyone who disagreed as hysterical crazies who are too mentally unfit to see the plain as day collusion, even though there was no proof (and there is still no proof).

So various members of the media are the top dogs when it comes to gaslighting.

as trump racks up success after success the only defense seems to be:

a) it was going to happen anyway
b) trump had nothing to do with it
c) it wasn't that important an issue

So, the article did exactly what it is accusing Trump of doing and the leftists completely missed it.

Brilliant.
