    You guys went psychotic when Obama got the nomination in '08, and you still have not recovered.

    Actually, Schadenfreude is quite normal and human.

    And he says the Mueller investigation is taking time away from him doing more pressing things. If he'd just stop spending so much time Tweeting, Mueller could do his job and find Trump as innocent as Trump obsessively and desperately wants someone to believe he is.

    Trump's insecurity is unfortunately for him, obvious to most people. - https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-...s/syc-20366662

    He appears to be highly agitated about something that he keeps trying to characterize as "witch hunts" and "rigged" the same as he did the election which he also clams was a "landslide" victory for himself, even as he called it rigged, the whole time he was running for POTUS. The man is a walking contradiction and one has to wonder why. Certainly it has to be hard to keep track of all the people that have been paid off to stay silent about the skeletons in his closet. Even members of his staff seem free to meet and tell, in spite of what had to be his demands of "loyalty" and non-disclosure.

    One would think someone as innocent as Trump keeps claiming to be, wouldn't seem so agitated about an investigation he has claimed would prove that innocence. In the 18th century Americans were subjected to the madness of King George III........Today, it would seem Americans are being subjected to the madness of King Donald.

    For a lot of Americans, these appear to be Trump's desperate efforts to continue to appeal to his base of people who voted for him based on emotion, perhaps hoping they will support the idea he is trying to instill in anyone that will buy the BS, that's he's some sort of "victim" of "collusion" between Democrats and Republicans to oust him, yet trying to get people to believe the collusion to oust him began before he was even elected. Trump has a record of counter suing anyone that sues him as a means to try to get them to back off or back away from holding him accountable. These Tweets seem to be an extension of that method and trying to gain sympathy from the "jury" of his supporters, by attacking those who are merely investigating him (not charging him with anything, so far) perhaps as a set up for what Trump may know is being discovered.

    There are also strains of the following strategy in his Tweets.

    "All propaganda must be popular and its intellectual level must be adjusted to the most limited intelligence among those it is addressed to. Consequently, the greater the mass it is intended to reach, the lower its purely intellectual level will have to be. But if, as in propaganda for sticking out a war, the aim is to influence a whole people, we must avoid excessive intellectual demands on our public, and too much caution cannot be extended in this direction."

    "The more modest its intellectual ballast, the more exclusively it takes into consideration the emotions of the masses, the more effective it will be. And this is the best proof of the soundness or unsoundness of a propaganda campaign, and not success pleasing a few scholars or young aesthetes."

    'The receptivity of the great masses is very limited, their intelligence is small, but their power of forgetting is enormous. In consequence of these facts, all effective propaganda must be limited to a very few points and must harp on these in slogans until the last member of the public understands what you want him to understand by your slogan. As soon as you sacrifice this slogan and try to be many-sided, the effect will piddle away, for the crowd can neither digest nor retain the material offered. In this way the result is weakened and in the end entirely cancelled out."

    Schadenfreude ... is the experience of pleasure, joy, or self-satisfaction that comes from learning of or witnessing the troubles, failures, or humiliation of another.

    Experiencing joy that others are suffering is the definition of Schadenfreude.

    “Another.” Not half of humanity, which you know nothing about and couldn’t pick out of the proverbial line-up.
