Donald Trump's 'Raging Insecurities'

Much has been said about the insecurities of GOP front-runner Donald Trump. Why did he feel the need to discuss his private anatomy in front of millions of Americans? Why are personal attacks such a staple of his political arsenal? Why does he constantly succumb to the urge to talk about how wealthy he is?

While Trump’s subconscious is for professionals to discuss, there is clearly deep-seated self-doubt that forces him to continually assert himself through various media outlets.

One symptom of this “raging insecurity” is his incessant use of Twitter, where he writes about anything and anyone with no apparent restraint.

His seeming need to constantly prove intelligence questions how comfortable he may feel with his intellectual prowess. Trump recently tweeted: “Sorry losers and haters, but my I.Q. is one of the highest -and you all know it! Please don’t feel so stupid or insecure, it’s not your fault.”



There is a constant stream of self-aggrandizement coming from the Trump campaign. He repeatedly talks about how he was a great student and went to a great school, often in response to questions that have absolutely no connection to those facts.

Former Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal addressed these realities back in the fall of 2015: “Like all narcissists, Donald Trump is insecure and weak. He’s afraid of being exposed. That’s why he tells us, always and constantly, how big and strong and wealthy he is.” This is as relevant now as it was last September, maybe more so.

Rory Cooper of Purple Strategies summed up perfectly why attacks on Trump that call him out as a bully or strongman just don’t stick: “A bully much prefers being called a bully than having the underlying rationale for his misbehavior identified - his raging insecurity.”

Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren has found the right angle for attack. Instead of calling Trump a bully, call him what he loves to call others: a loser.

Addressing Trump on his home turf of Twitter on Monday, Sen. Warren wrote: “@RealDonaldTrump knows he’s a loser. His insecurities are on parade: petty bullying, attacks on women, cheap racism, flagrant narcissism.”

And why can’t he give us a straight answer on what’s going on with his hair!? At this point, it’s unlikely anyone really cares if he’s going bald or not. Be honest now, Donald.

    Trump is an egomaniac with an inferiority complex

    I'm constantly amazed that so many people are so scared and resentful that they would put this thin-skinned, petty little man in the White House to make life and death decisions for all of us.
