I've got a new piece at BNR about Donald Trump's penchant for projection:
Someone once said that if you ever want to know what conservatives are doing, just listen to what they're accusing progressives of doing. This is projection — and Donald Trump is a master of it.Head on over to read the whole thing.
As I've written many times before, once you realize everything Trump says is projection, it all makes so much more sense. What he says about other people – particularly when he is accusing them of something – is a confession about himself.
Trump overtly talks and talks and talks about himself – and when he talks about other people, he's still talking about himself. It's just that he's projecting his own flaws and failures onto them.
