The man in solitary confinement was angry. He was cut off from the world, power a distant memory, and grievance surrounding him as usual. So he took to where his friend — his ONLY friend –was waiting for him: Truth Social.

He simply cannot stop. I refer to Donald Trump, whose life these days seems to consist of no more than angry and rambling Truth Social posts. In the last week or so, several reports of Trump’s aloneness have been reported. There have been reports on how he’s been increasingly cut off from other people, friends, staff, family, and reality. Sounds like solitary confinement to me.

And when someone is in solitary, their mind can play tricks. Trump was never sane anyway, but now he appears to really have gone around the bend. On Friday, Trump attacked Jewish leaders, saying they didn’t love him enough. (My words.)

His words were that they had shown a “lack of loyalty” to him. Trump railed against Jewish leaders, saying he was the best President for Israel ever and remarking on how soon those leaders forget.

But it isn’t just Jewish leaders Trump is attacking. He seems to be going, no holds barred, after everybody lately. And he’s on truth social a lot more than usual. It is said that those in solitary confinement stand a higher choice of developing some type of psychosis.

It all has to do with sensory deprivation. When one is cut off from the world — from human contact — of course, there are going to be changes, and they’re usually not for the better. At this point, it seems that almost everybody is taking Trump’s rantings with a grain of salt. He’s lost the ability for anyone to take him at all seriously anymore. All he has left is his anger, reflecting the solitary confinement he finds himself in.
