Donald Trump has a strange, sometimes abusive relationship with women. Recent past president of the American Psychoanalytic Association Mark Smaller looked toward the president’s mother to arm-chair diagnose POTUS.
He said “You don’t have to be Freud or Fellini to interpret this,” according to The POLITICO Magazine. Another past president of the organization Prudence Gourguech said:
‘I’m not talking specifically about any individual, including the president, or his mother. But we sometimes call an ordinary, devoted mother [establishes] the capacity to trust. A sense of security versus insecurity. Knowing what’s real and what’s not real…And I think it’s fair to say that the capacity for empathy develops through your maternal relationship.’
That is part of why her son is so creepy. A Democratic super PAC has a new ad out that goes after Donald Trump, calling him “creepy.” It will air on CNN, Fox News, CNN, and MSNBC beginning on Wednesday, on shows “Trump watches regularly” and run for five days.
MeidasTouch super PAC released the ad. Since it came out on Twitter Sunday and through Tuesday over five million people had seen it.
Those shows where it airs include Fox & Friends and shows manned by Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, and Laura Ingraham. In addition, it will run on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, and CNN shows hosted by Anderson Cooper, Chris Cuomo, and Don Lemon.
One of the super PAC’s founders Brett Meiselas said:
‘The message in this ad speaks for itself. From Donald Trump’s penchant for making disturbing comments to his reprehensible unwanted touching of women, it’s clear that this man is ill, deranged, and yes, deeply creepy. He has no place in the White House.’
The 60-second spot pulls the White House counselor Kellyanne Conway’s voice talking about Trump’s opponent former Vice President Joe Biden. She speaks to someone, referring to former VP:
‘A lot of really creepy statements, actions for sure, but statements that he’s made in the past that make me very uncomfortable. Certainly as a mother, but as a person who breathes air.’
The ad inserts comments he has made about women among clips of Conway’s comments, including about his own two daughters. In a 2006 interview on The View, POTUS creeped people out when he said this:
‘if Ivanka [Trump] weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.’
After wife number two, Marla Maples brought daughter Tiffany into the Trump family, POTUS was on the Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous with her. That is when Trump got even creepier:
“I think that she’s got a lot of Marla, she’s really a beautiful baby. She’s got Marla’s legs. We don’t know whether or not she’s got this part yet but time will tell (making the national symbol for breasts).’
Three brothers formed the super PAC Ben, Brett, and Jordan Meiselas during the coronavirus pandemic shutdown. Its goal is to defeat Trump in the upcoming election.
‘[S]potlighting his failures, lies, creepy acts, and recklessness.”
Here is the ad. See what you think:

Trump’s mother came from a “remote, desolate northwest corner of Scotland,” the tenth of 10 children. Not long after moving to the United States, she was married to Fred Trump and driving a rose-colored Rolls-Royce.” according to Vanity Fair. During the president’s wild heyday, the magazine reported his mother Mary once said:
‘What kind of son have I created?’
When Trump was a little more than 2-years-old, his mother gave birth to his younger brother. “Severe hemorrhaging” led to an emergency hysterectomy. After she acquired an infection, she had more surgeries “four in something like two weeks.” The family did not know whether she would live. Smaller said:
‘A 2½-year-old is going through a process of becoming more autonomous, a little bit more independent from the mother. If there is a disruption or a rupture in the connection, it would have had an impact on the sense of self, the sense of security, the sense of confidence.’
Afterward, Trump’s mother spent much time in her room isolated, recuperating, possibly depressed. She effectively abandoned Trump at a critical age. Of course, that does not excuse his behavior.
Twitter world went full-on alert when this ad came out. Maybe the Trump followers do not believe their eyes, but Democrats recognize full-on creepy.
