All That Booing Revealed the True Face of Trump: His face took the following journey over 15 seconds

https://media.vanityfair.com/photos/5db72881084f75000810047f/16/w_2560%2Cc_limit/trump-boo-face.jpg

n Sunday, Donald Trump got booed. I’m not telling you anything you haven’t already watched 30 or 40 times. He got buried by nearly 100 decibels of noise at Game 5 of the World Series, as the Washington Nationals played the Houston Astros in his adopted home of Washington, D.C. while surrounded by his wife, Melania Trump, and his most faithful pets, Lindsey Graham, Matt Gaetz, and more.

His face took the following journey over an amazing 15 seconds:




it is, remarkably, a face we’ve never seen on Trump before; we’ve seen a lot of versions of this guy during his life in the spotlight—from his time as the ’80s mascot for corporate greed to his time as a bankrupt casino owner to his time as a racist conspiracy theorist. Fifty years is a long time in the spotlight—you see a guy from a lot of angles.

-----------

This is the first time we’ve seen all the muscles in Trump's face strain against any reaction; the first time we’ve watched his breath catch. Even his lap dog Gaetz turned his head around slowly to clock how the president was handling it all (and it was as if Melania knew to keep her eyes forward). The reaction on his favorite platform, Twitter, has been largely celebratory, taking this ad hoc and pure expression of disapproval from the depths of the country’s capital and putting words to it. Of course, there were naysayers too. The hosts of MSNBC’s Morning Joe paid the incident some poorly pitched hand-wringing, saying no president deserved such a reaction. That take quickly became a chum in the water, helping to extend the story on Monday morning.

1. I would disagree with the author of that article

who concludes


Trump appears pathetically, awfully pitiable here. For those few seconds, while he stands there trying not to look at anyone, he was fully, purely himself without all the preening excess and pretend swagger, a guy who doesn’t work toward anything except approval.


My impression on watching the video the first time and many repeated viewings, is that while attempting (unsuccessfully) to pretend he doesn't hear the booing, he looks enraged and wishing to exterminate everyone within the stadium for daring to voice disapproval of him.

5. I felt a pang of pity for the shitstain for sure. It was as fleeting as fleeting gets, but

I did feel pity for him. In that second where he takes in a couple of gasps, I could almost feel the punch in the gut he got. I can see waves of shock, confusion, and pain cross his face in that second.

Nothing penetrates a narcissist's veneer like ridicule. It's the thing they fear most, and this was unexpected - in fact the complete opposite of what he expected. Plus, it was in front of his wife, his closest (friends? ass-lickers? sycophants?) AND on national TV. I admit that I felt his pain in that moment. He's suffered very few blows like that in his life. He doesn't feel deeply very often, but he felt this, and it cut him to his core.

But then I got over it, and thought Good, he deserves it. I can't get all the way to gloat, but I am glad that he had that painful shock to his fucking goddamn ego.

6. Actually narcissists have very profound and sincere feelings but only

for themselves. Self pity, adulation, love, admiration, grief, all of it dialed up to the highest degree. They don’t feel any of that even for family. Family is just there to make him look good.

7. Next time you feel a bit of pity for him, think of the

Judges he nominated, the programs he tried to cut, the environmenal regulations, the kids in college, the rage he expresses towards women of color, etc

17. People who surround themselves with Yes-men are not used to hearing no

His rallies have propped up his fragile ego making it very easy for normal American baseball fans to break him down.

Amongst many things, he hates dogs.

“He died after running into a dead-end tunnel, whimpering, screaming and crying all the way,” Trump said. Later, he said it again. “He died like a dog, he died like a coward, he was whimpering, screaming and crying,” Trump said. “And frankly, I think it’s something that should be brought out.”

2. Trump did seem like he did a big gasp--or was chewing his tongue!

10. He was putting every ounce of energy into schooling his face.

He has had a public face all his life. Necessary in order to not give away any indication of his lying. He has learned to school his public face to perfection. Only this time he was in the process of showing his magnanimous hero face when he was caught off guard by the obvious booing, the oversized anti Trump banners and the chanting. Those few seconds were him realizing what was going on and searching desperately for the right face to show, and failing to find it because he’s never rehearsed or even developed one.

It created a kind of rigor Mortis moment with his facial muscles going rigid for a few seconds. He was at a loss about how to react.

The reaction of embarrassment and rage would come after the first second or two that we witnessed.

11. He's the most boorish, loathsome POS who has ever dared to call himself a leader.

He deserves every single second of that.

12. Same thing happened to Rudy Giuliani last year

Remember when everybody booed him in the stadium? Not sure if it was a playoff game or the World Series, but he got seriously booed. I'm sure he would have skipped the game if he had known ahead of time. Same with Chump.

19. Maybe it's just dawning on him that a majority of the country hates his guts?
