It’s always the dead of night in the thing that passes for Donald Trump’s soul. It exists as a fire pit — a place of evil and rage. There isn’t any humanity there at all. It is merely oblivion.

I use that word — oblivion — deliberately because that is exactly the word Trump used about our great country. Trump accused oblivion of coming for the United States of America. He said our country is heading toward oblivion.

That’s obviously not true, and that’s an excellent example of this little thing called projection that Trump does so well. Imagine the sheer DEPTH of the narcissism that encompasses him — that he’d actually think this country will become oblivion if he isn’t running it.

Now here is the projection. It is he who walks alone who is heading for oblivion. He’s already in oblivion in my humble opinion. He walks the streets alone, a stranger in a strange land. There is nobody who can get into his skin and understand him. He is as alone as a single solitary tree in a VERY empty forest.

He has lived in oblivion since the beginning of time. He’s always been alone, unwilling to fight the wicked and maniacal voices in the night. He isn’t insane in the clinical sense, but he’s got a deep sickness to him and because the walls are closing in on him, that sickness has become an infestation molding itself to him.

This is the part of the story, friends and readers, where the walls begin their activity. Those cackling, walls that have waited so long to enclose him are moving closer. There is no escape from these walls. Anywhere he tries to go, he sees those walls in front of him. These inevitable walls are the real reason for his wrath.

Those implacable, indifferent, menacing walls, slowly moving around him, sucking the sanity from him as Donnie becomes smaller and smaller. It’s kind of like a wicked Fairytale come to life for Donald Trump. Let me be clear: we are not a country that is heading toward oblivion.

He got that wrong as well. HE is a traitor, who is heading toward oblivion, the walls have hold of him now, and there is nowhere he can go to avoid their final imprisonment.
