FAMILY REUNION: There's no other term to describe today's SAVE AMERICA rally in Des Moines, IA. It wasn't a political rally. It wasn't even what we Minnesotans call "a get-together." It was a joyful family reunion of the Great American Family of Patriots with President Trump, our beloved patriarch, as the great, big, warm patriotic heart at the center of our big happy patriotic family.
He looked good too, didn't he, Patriots? As strong and vibrant as ever. For a blessed few hours, it was just like the good ol' days. Trump whistlestopping by private jet. Vast MAGA crowds dancing, cheering, pledging, praying, singing and watching football together for hours as they waited to see him: our Re-Founding Father.
There's a term for the feeling at a Trump Rally: Camelot. Every time he holds a SAVE AMERICA rally, we taste Camelot again. Every time he leaves is more heart-breaking and intolerable than the last time.
Today in Des Moines, IA was no exception. Cheers rang. Patriotism swelled. And the love! The love was palpable.
As soon as Donald Trump announced his candidacy in 2015, screams of "Narcissist!" resounded through cyberspace.
It was the perfect label at the perfect time. The whole Narcissism trend had just started and I was in the perfect place at the perfect time too. As Trump began his presidential campaign, I began writing PsychCentral's first dedicated narcissism blog, Narcissism Meets Normalcy.
