Whatever doesn’t kill Trump only makes him stronger

Donald Trump presides as he campaigned. He is proving a Nietzschean figure in the sense that “what does not kill him makes him stronger.”

Each time the media, Republican enemies and the Democratic opposition seem to have Trump on the ropes, the president emerges far less wounded than his critics. The list of felled detractors includes: the National Football League, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, Kathy Griffin and John Podesta.

Former FBI Director and Trump critic James Comey has imploded his career. In “Alice in Wonderland” fashion, the president’s sloppy tweet about having his “wires tapped” in Trump Tower “by Obama” eventually may prove true in the sense that Obama administration officials swept up Trump and others on the pretext of investigating purported collusion.

    In some ways his enemies have all committed suicide or accidentally killed themselves. They are so angry, so insane they’ve lost the capacity of rational thought. It’s part hubris on their part to imagine they can do and say whatever they like but it’s also part kamikaze pilot/suicide bomber thinking.

    I hope they move on to actual suicide bombing because the odds are they’re more likely to die in ‘work accidents’ than anything else. And that would be hilarious.

    I have never before seen a phenomena like Trump before in my life.
    Somehow, someway, he forces people to say what they really think, and this has harmed his enemies most of all.
    It really is as if he has Wonder Woman’s magic lasso that forces people to tell the truth and they out themselves as disingenuous phonies.
