Does Trump’s Inner Napoleon Explain Sean Spicer’s Impromptu Presser? | #Inauguration Envy on Blog#42

Who knew that a man who stands at 6’3 tall could have a Napoleon complex? Urban Dictionary defines Napoleon Complex as:

“A personality complex that consists of power trips and false machismo to make up for short height and feelings of inferiority.”

Since Trump is that tall, it must be his underdeveloped and inadequate inner Trump that drove him to cause his new White House press secretary, Sean Spicer, to give an impromptu press conference. Its stated purpose? To update the media on the latest White House actions, but then Spicer went on a 5-minute angry rant about the media’s portrayal of the attendance of his boss’ inauguration:

Whatever Spicer said about attendance doesn’t quite jibe with these pictures:

What’s more, when all is said and done, the nationwide Women’s March will blow all inauguration attendance figures out of the water. As reported by NBC Los Angeles reporter, Marin Austin, 750,000 women attended the LA Women’s March, when only 80,000 had been expected.

New York looked no less well-attended:

D.C.? Overflow crowd, Baby!

Chicago? Showed up!

Atlanta? There!

Boston? The Commons were jam-packed!

Senator Bernie Sanders best expressed the day’s significance in one tweet:

 

Could it be that Ivanka and Jared Kushner haven’t yet started their shifts at the White House? Had either one been on hand, surely, this presser would have been nixed? Making this a contest against America’s women is not only a losing proposition – scorned women always win – but it shows how truly inadequate a staff Trump has assembled for himself. Good advisers, including the press secretary, would have strongly cautioned against this kind of rant. If contradictory photos existed, the White House should have posted them on that empty White House website, and tweeted them out…

    Trump may facilitate a crisis (economic) that will open the door for real change. the public needs a third party that has an explicit socialist/environmental/anti-war agenda. until the “progressives” of this world abandon the faux populist D party, there will be little opposition to corporate rule in america.

    The deplorables who voted for trump are your future allies, not the latte sipping managerial class who follows Rachel Maddow and is encouraging you to hold a sign that says “f-ck trump”.

    This should be obvious.
    The D/R dichotomy is smoke and mirrors.

    “You put them first,” said Malcolm X, “and they put you last. ‘Cause you’re a chump. A political chump! … Any time you throw your weight behind a political party that controls two-thirds of the government, and that party can’t keep the promise that it made to you during election time, and you are dumb enough to walk around continuing to identify yourself with that party — you’re not only a chump but you’re a traitor to your race.” – Malcolm X

    “To stir the masses, to appeal to their higher, better selves, to set them thinking for themselves, and to hold ever before them the ideal of mutual kindness and good will, based upon mutual interests, is to render real service to the cause of humanity.” – Eugene Debs

    …..

    “What the workingmen of the country are profoundly interested in is the private ownership of the means of production and distribution, the enslaving and degrading wage-system in which they toil for a pittance at the pleasure of their masters and are bludgeoned, jailed or shot when they protest — this is the central, controlling, vital issue of the hour, and neither of the old party platforms has a word or even a hint about it.

    As a rule, large capitalists are Republicans and small capitalists are Democrats, but workingmen must remember that they are all capitalists, and that the many small ones, like the fewer large ones, are all politically supporting their class interests, and this is always and everywhere the capitalist class.'” – Eugene Debs

    …peace…
