Trump's Ghost Writer Tells the Truth about the "Sociopath" 

On Monday, The New Yorker published a fascinating reveal from Tony Schwartz, the ghostwriter who helped pen Donald Trump's 1987 memoir, The Art of the Deal. He told the magazine that he felt a "deep sense of remorse" for writing the best-selling memoir.

"I put lipstick on a pig," he said. "I feel a deep sense of remorse that I contributed to presenting Trump in a way that brought him wider attention and made him more appealing than he is.”

"I genuinely believe that if Trump wins and gets the nuclear codes there is an excellent possibility it will lead to the end of civilization," he added.

Asked how he would rename the book today, Schwartz said he would call it "The Sociopath."  Trump now claims he wrote the book, but he did not.  Schwartz did and is ashamed that he made Trump look so good.  He now gives any profits from that book to specific charities.  Trump often claims he gives money to charities but there is no evidence that he actually does so.

from Dorothy:  Schwartz spent much time with Trump gathering information for the book.  He found that Trump had a very short attention span, lied and contradicted himself over and over, and often was incoherent.  Among other things, he lied about where he was born and where his family came from.  He lied about his business successes and his donations to charity.  He falls apart when he is criticized.   He sometimes has tantrums.  To put him in charge of nuclear weaponry would be disastrous.  He cares nothing for other people, including those who now support him.  He has no personal friends.  When other seeming friends are dying, he ignores them.   Indeed, he is a sociopath and very dangerous.

This article is a must read for sure.
