Donald Trump is “an average Joe.” These were the words spoken on MSNBC today. And they’re so true. Donald Trump is nobody special. He’s “an average Joe.” Of course, Trump does not think so. This might be why Trump reportedly had more than 300 classified documents when he left office.

And some of these documents were related to nuclear weapons. And Trump is said to have gone through many boxes containing these highly sensitive documents in late 2021. Mr. Trump is in a great deal of trouble. And it all stems from his narcissism- the belief that he is special.

So it is a great pleasure to write that Mr. Trump is NOT special. As said on MSNBC, he is an “average Joe” — just a civilian now — nobody important. How that must eat away at him. This is a man who wanted to be all-powerful –a dictator.

One person on social media described the collapse of Trump as reminding them of the fall of the Roman Empire.They compared Trump to Nero Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus, the fifth and final emperor of Rome.

Many have compared Trump’s blatant cruelty and hate to Adolf Hitler. I agree with all of these comparisons. But there is one thing that people are not talking about regarding Trump that I believe they should be. And that is Trump’s blatant horror at being just an “average Joe.”

I think it is that horror that spurs him on to an extent. To cover the fact that his self-esteem is at about zero, Trump does a lot of pretending. I imagine he lies to himself as much as to others.

And to go on — to keep up the illusion that he is someone special — Trump must pretend he is ABOVE mere mortals, that he’s NOT just an “average Joe,” and that he is smarter and more clever than most. Except the opposite is true. Trump is stupider than most. He may be the stupidest criminal ever to exist because he cannot think ahead. There is no filter, no awareness of how his actions will make him appear to others.


And how he appears is as a bumbling, not very intelligent law-breaker, a man with no ability to think beyond his need for immediate gratification, a spoiled baby of the highest degree — an average Joe — a silly, unimaginative, law-breaking, AVERAGE lunatic.
