So true. I've said this from the primaries. He wants to "win" NOT be president. At all. I believe it terrifies him.

I'll never understand how someone can watch these two debate and actually have their opinions change.

I can't fathom watching the debate and being like "well, that Trump sure was convincing!"

Isn't your first thought - this guy is saying its my fault for suffering from PTSD because i'm too weak to handle it?

Trump uses this tactic all the time. He phrases it just around the edges enough where he can claim he didn't mean it, but it's pretty clear.
I can't agree with this, or any interpretation that says he was attempting to hurt anyone. What he said is true, and is a sad state if affairs.

I still despise the guy, but I'm not going to rake him over the goals for shoddy journalism and click bait headlines. It lets him climb up on his cross, and I'm not going to help him attach himself to it.

I like that Ohio absolutely doubled down after it, even.

Big reveal! October surprise!

Quote:
when Assange finally appeared, looking a little like Max Headroom against his green screen backdrop, he didn’t have much to reveal. And so, Trump lovers and truth enthusiasts everywhere were told something with the power to change the course of the U.S. presidential election, and indeed, the very fate of the American project itself, forever: Books published by Wikileaks are now 40 percent off!
Wow! I didn't know they published books! This changes EVERYTHING!

I understand where you're coming from, but it gets to a deeper point of his entire personality and thought process.
Every rally, the debate, he gives no specifics except, we're going to get tough folks. I'm going to do it with strength. I'm strong on this or that...
Hillary is weak and doesn't have stamina, blah blah... Putin is a strong leader, Kim Jong Un is admirable because of how he "took control"

While i don't think he conciously was trying to say what he ended up implying, I really don't think you can argue that the flip side of his statement does in effect mean "weak" people are the ones that get PTSD because they can't handle it.
It just shows a horrible misunderstanding of PTSD and mental trauma in general.
I agree this one should not be that big of a deal, and it won't be because he'll say something more stupid in a few hours and the media will move on.
But i do think that it solidifies his bizarre mentality and over-compensation.
