Every mature adult knows it’s thenexact opposite. It take courage and strength to admit you are wrong. The ability to deal with those often-humiliating feelings. It’s the weak who are sunk at the thought of surviving an apology.

Cadet Bonespurs, like all pampered twits, gets his behavior from those he admires and Roy Cohen - Consigliere of Tailgunner Joe McCarthy, is the hero lil' donny chose to ape as his idea of an adult.

 

Every time Roy lost a case for donny, he told donny to tell the world they won, and like the addlepated puppy he is, that's what donny did and still does. He considers it a sign of strength because he has no idea what that really means, just like everything else including the seizure of airports by George Washington during the Revolution and the size of the crowds he draws.

 

People who admires a gutless draftdodger who is trying to become Roy Cohen cannot be left deciding our elections. Fortunately there's more of us then of them, so, fellow Progressives, VOTE FOR THE DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATES, even if you don't love them, because the other side will do that for their twits and there IS a difference.

Throughout his life Donald Trump refused to admit that he was wrong or made a mistake. When the Trump real estate business was sued by the government in 1973 and charged with violating the Fair Housing laws by refusing to rent to blacks; he settled the case and paid a fine. What Trump did was to plea no contest, accept the judgement of the court and walk away. He called it a victory and redemption, but in reality a no contest plea is a guilty plea without admitting guilt.

 

Donald Trump lies constantly. Whenever he is called out for his lies, he attacks and deflects. In 1989, Donald Trump took out a full page ad in the New York Times urging the death penalty for the "Central Park Five" accused of attacking and sexually assaulting a young woman who was jogging. The "Central Park Five" were all black and the jogger was a white woman. Of course she didn't die, so there couldn't be any murder charges which carry the death penalty. In essence, Trump was trying to start a lynch mob, just like racist whites did in the Jim Crow south whenever a black man was accused of attacking a white woman.

 

But the Central Park Five were innocent. Several years later another man was charged with the crime and DNA evidence, which wasn't available at the time of the crime, linked him to the victim. He was convicted and the Central Park Five were released from prison and exonerated. But Donald Trump never admitted that he was wrong and mistaken for advocating the execution of five innocent black men.

 

So why should anyone expect Donald Trump to act any differently now that he is President of the United States? Donald Trump is a flat out racist. He is a serial liar as well as a complete coward. Rather than refusing to admit a mistake or apologize being a sign of weakness, it is a sign of strength and maturity. It shows that a one is an adult who can realize and admit mistakes and grow as a result.

 

Refusing to admit mistakes and apologize are common for children. Responsible parents force their children to admit mistakes and apologize. I am sure that most grown men have had an experience in their childhood where their father made them apologize to someone else for something that they did. Whether it was hitting a baseball through a neighbor's window, or hitting their little sister; we all learn from our fathers to own up to our misdeeds and mistakes.

 

That is part of growing up and becoming a responsible adult. Donald Trump just has never grown up. What we have is a spoiled child as President.

Of course, he is such a narcissist that he thinks that an employ is a sign or weakness.

Trump detests apologetic men

Here is a great column from New York Times columnist Charles Blow. Here he states the obvious; in Donald Trump's world, admitting that you were wrong and apologizing for mistakes is a sign of weakness. Donald Trump was raised by his father that there are winners and losers and the winners are "killers". Trump was taught by his father never to admit failure or a mistake.

 

Read on

 

Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta negotiated what many consider a sweetheart deal with Jeffrey Epstein over sex-crime charges years ago when Acosta was the United States attorney for the Southern District of Florida.

 

Acosta held a news conference on Wednesday to, presumably, calm calls for his removal now that Epstein has been arrested and charged with sex trafficking by federal prosecutors in New York.

 

The Office of Child Labor, Forced Labor and Human Trafficking is part of the Department of Labor.

The charges are absolutely disgusting. Epstein is alleged to have preyed on underage girls, some of whom he used as recruiters of other victims.

 

Donald Trump urged Acosta to publicly explain actions, or inactions, in the Epstein case, according to reports.

 

It remains to be seen whether Acosta’s news conference performance will save his job. As The New York Times reported, “Mr. Acosta’s appearance before cameras was seen as a crucial test of whether he will keep his job, with an audience of one as President Trump watched and weighed a decision.”

 

But that’s the thing that stops you: For Trump, this isn’t about the charges or the children. For him, this is about how men perform denial. In the mind of the misogynist, a man’s word is the weightiest thing in society, even when he’s lying. One’s test of survival and prosperity isn’t what you say, but how you say it. It isn’t what you do, but how you defend or deny it.

 

Acosta did exactly what his audience of one would like: waffled, deflected and, notably, refused to apologize to the victims in the case and refused to say that he regretted his actions.

 

According to Bob Woodward last year, Trump talked about a “friend who had acknowledged some bad behavior toward women.” When counseling that friend on how to respond, Trump said, “You’ve got to deny, deny, deny and push back on these women.” Trump continued: “If you admit to anything and any culpability, then you’re dead. That was a big mistake you made.”

In Trump’s world, apologies and punishments are for the weak. They are for losers.

 

Victims have no voice. There is a plane above us average people, a plane on which the lives of the rich and powerful play out, a plane on which the rules are different.

 

I don’t believe Trump cares at all about the girls Epstein is accused of having abused. I don’t believe he cares at all that the Acosta deal in the case looks shady and may have spared the rich man at the expense of the poor girls.

 

I believe Trump only cares about his own image and how those around him reflect on him. He wants to project strength at all times. To him, there’s nothing weaker than an apologetic man.
