To really understand President Trump, one must first understand what’s behind the spanking he got from Stormy Daniels.
Trump is a member of that small group of elites who inherit for a living. They do not work, from womb to tomb, but profit from the sweat and blood of the working class. President George HW Bush once called them “the investment class.”
And some of them, like The Donald, are embarrassed that anyone with an IQ above their shoe size (but not one of his zombie followers) is on to them, so they fabricate an existence in which they actually serve a useful function in society.
One of Trump’s primary fabrications is that he built the Trump empire from his awesome intellect and hard work. A cursory examination of this shows he built his companies through bankruptcies, shorting his legal debts and leaving those who helped him build the companies, unpaid and wanting. If there’s one word to describe this, it’s ruthlessness.
And Trump, although a moron according to his first secretary of state (“fucking moron,” to be exact), on one level knows this undeservedness to be true.
To get around it, Trump stays perpetually delusional, appearing before audiences to tell them what a genius he is. According to Trump, he’s been called “the greatest president ever.”
Recently, he told an audience that he is quite good looking, better looking than a Democratic Party candidate running for Congress, as though this were important. If so, one wonders why anyone voted for the first Republican president, Honest Abe, who was said to be homely as can be.
What happens to some people, such as Trump, when they know that they have succeeded through an unfair system which rewards the wealthy and punishes the poor, is that they have a deep-seeded guilt complex.
Trump wouldn’t think he had to constantly tell us how wonderful he is if he didn’t have this nagging feeling that he is unworthy of the fortune and power that he has. He is badly in need of atonement.
And so it is that he likely welcomed the stern Stormy Daniels’ insistence that he drop his trousers and assume the position for some whacks.
There are bondage and discipline mistresses, or dominatrices, who make a good living from spanking corporate CEOs and other wealthy clients. These are not prostitutes, they very much run the sessions, and there is never sex involved.
Sometimes dominatrices are paid to urinate on wealthy men like Trump. As I’m writing this, CNN is breaking the story that fired FBI Director Comey’s new book will allege that Trump talked with him about the media story of his being urinated on by women in Moscow, Denying it and asking Comey to look into the “golden showers.”
One doesn’t see this fetish in working class men, it seems to be a compulsion of the rich, who rightfully feel that in our laissez-faire system they’ve succeeded because of unfairness and are deserving of punishment. However, with all their power in a completely corrupt system, they will not receive punishment without their own consent.
