Kathy Griffin Body Language Shows Fake Apology And Should NEVER Be Forgiven

Screen Shot 2017-05-31 at 12.30.19 AM.pngThere is absolutely NOTHING  funny about comedian Kathy Griffin’s showing a macabre shocking beheaded President  Trump with blood dripping down his face and matted into his blond hair . It’s one thing to disagree with Trump or his policies and to voice  opposition but this is unacceptable to do something like this. She  needs to be held accountable for her behavior forever and boycotted from all media, comedy venues and needs to be dealt with legally for inciting violence against the President.

Screen Shot 2017-05-31 at 12.38.14 AM.png

Watching her pathetic hollow monotone apology was equally as repulsive.It is clear that she ONLY apologized because of the backlash which she openly admitted. Any apology that is made for that reason should never be accepted. Hers was not a true, heartfelt apology as she rolled her eyes and grimaced, Her Facial Language said” I;m forced to do this so that is the only reason I am apologizing. Look at her insincere facial expressions. There is  no remorse whatsoever.

The first phoney thing about her is her lack of makeup. This is a woman who is ALWAYS made up and for her to go without makeup shows how phony and contrived she is being.  Look at what she does with her lips. Its a defiant lip position which indicates she really doesn’t want to make this apology as it is not from her heart.

Screen Shot 2017-05-31 at 12.39.58 AM.png

She says Hey everybody it’s me as she bows her head. This indicates that she is embarrassed by the negative feedback she received.

Screen Shot 2017-05-31 at 12.43.43 AM.png

She says “I sincerely apologize” as she shakes her head “NO,” When you make a positive statement followed by negative body language like shaking your head “no: it is your body leaking out that you are not really apologizing.

Screen Shot 2017-05-31 at 12.41.47 AM.png

She then closes her eyes as she says she apologizes which also indicates that she doesn’t want to really apologize. When someone honestly apologizes they open their eyes.

Screen Shot 2017-05-31 at 12.46.12 AM.pngShe said “I am just now seeing the reaction of these images. ” As she says this she closes her eyes as to subconsciously not wanting to see how bad people’s reactions to her action s were. She doesn’t take responsibility as she says the “reaction of these images.” In essence she is distancing herself.

Screen Shot 2017-05-31 at 12.48.33 AM.pngAnd here is the part where this Toxic Woman completely destroyed herself forever, She tries to make excuses by saying I’m a comic in order to appease herself and make it all right to show a beheaded President because she’s a comic.

Screen Shot 2017-05-31 at 12.50.42 AM.png

Then this creature has the audacity to roll her eyes and says I crossed the line- I moved the line and then I crossed it. Her Facial Language shows that she is defiant and disgusted at having to apologize. It looks like a spoiled child rolling their eyes because they have to do something their mother told them to do that hy didn’t want to do.

then she shows how unapologetic she is as she says she realizes that the image “was disturbing.”WHAT???? The image was disturbing???? The fact that you could show a beheaded President of the United States that you have in essence murdered in effigy  is more disturbing.”But she does not address this as she obviously thinks there is nothing wrong with that. She just thinks it is wrong because the image of a bloody face and matted blood on the hair is disturbing.

Then  without apologizing this egomaniac says she” made a lot of mistaks” in her career and will continue to make them. Well here’s a  news flash Kathy, you will no longer make any mistakes in your career because it is essentially OVER!

When CNN is against you and your buddy Anderson Cooper chastises you and Chelsea Clinton who is a staunch supporter of her mother  Hillary and is always quick to criticize Trump, says it is a “no no” to joke about killing any President, you are doomed. Squatty Potty just fired you and I doubt if anyone will hire you as they will not want your “stink” on them. Even those celebs who are against Trump find your actions appalling. If CNN puts you on for New Years eve you can bet that CNN will be boycotted even more than it is already. They can’t afford to have you on any longer as their ratings are too low already.

And when you read a tweet that says:

Threats made against @SecretService protectees receive the highest priority of all of our investigations. #ProtectionNeverRests

— U.S. Secret Service (@SecretService) May 30, 2017

It means that the “head”  you are holding up detached from it’s body and dripping with blood  to indicate a death, may very well reflect  your own head as you have certainly killed your career forever.

Chuck Schumer Body Language Reveals Toxic Manipulation Dragging Refugees On Stage Phony Gestures, and Fake Tears

 

Screen Shot 2017-01-30 at 7.59.47 PM.png

He brings a handsome Syrian family on stage  with the women dressed in scarves and three cute children.

Screen Shot 2017-01-30 at 8.01.02 PM.pngHe eyes the father. As he parades this “newly arrived family” of immigrants on stage, it seems very contrived and manipulative to me. It appears Schumer is doing this for his own agenda not for this family as they look traumatized being on stage.

Screen Shot 2017-01-30 at 8.04.32 PM.pngAll children look sad and uncomfortable as you can see in the photo above.

Screen Shot 2017-01-30 at 8.07.32 PM.png

As he reads his speech there is no emotion and no inflection as it appears to be a monotonous drone. There is no passion in the speech as she says that he is saying No to Trump’ executive order. He rarely looks up as he reads from his script.

Screen Shot 2017-01-30 at 8.10.34 PM.png ASshe says so many are opposed to this order we see him raised his finger in a rehearsed manner that looks awkwards. It is an upward point which is not showing true anger. True anger would be shown by a direct point with finger extended and pointer lower  not upwards as he has it positioned.

Screen Shot 2017-01-30 at 8.13.25 PM.png

He continues to sound boring and emotionless as he reads his script as he discusses the military.He then says something ridiculous that it makes lone wolves  are not so lone after all and their acts occur more not less. This  statement is nonsense as most lone wolves are usually beholden to some cause, doctrine , or group as they commit acts of terror.

Screen Shot 2017-01-30 at 9.13.49 PM.pngHe does not seem upset at all facially throughout the speech as he even leaks out several smiles. This indicates that he appears to be enjoying his moment on stage.

Once again there is no vocal emotion as he speaks as she is saying negative things about Trump’s program.

Screen Shot 2017-01-30 at 9.16.31 PM.png

He then refers to “the beauty of these people” which is so phony and contrived as he says it. It further validates that he is using ” these people” as props for his own agenda.He purses his lips for emphasis, after he says this which is further indication of his phoniness as this is  a conflicting facial gesture to what eh just said.

His phoniness continues as he stammers as he reads from his script and says let me tell you about this family. Clearly he is reading about this family and shows know emotion or no real knowledge of this family he is using as a political prop.

Screen Shot 2017-01-30 at 9.21.36 PM.png

Asn he talks about the father he looks down as he continues to read about the man and awkwardly  seeks out the man’s shoulder in an attempt to show how much he cares about the man. It is blatantly contrived and phony and insincere.

Then he ridiculous slaps the poor man on thr shoulder in an aggressive gesture as eh said that the man came here because he translated for the Americans and got death threats for helping American soldiers. This is not some poor refugee that was injured or wounded in the war and left to die and rescued  he was an employee paid by Americans for his translation services for  whom he is serving and should very well be protected by his employer- the Americans. This is what is usually done and everyone knows it. yet Schumer is making it seem like this is some unusual case and that his man is some type of hero.

Screen Shot 2017-01-30 at 9.29.16 PM.png

Schumer makes a  fist as he continues to exploit this poor man who doesn’t seem to happy with being paraded on stage and used as a prop as you can see by his facial expression. To further illustrate Schumer’s phoniness her doesn’t even look at the man. As he speaks he continues to stumble on his words, further indicating that he is manipulating and using this man to make his point.

Screen Shot 2017-01-30 at 9.36.18 PM.png

Then he stumbles on the name of the next family he seeks to publicly exploit on stage. He rocks back and forth as he speaks indicating his discomfort and lack of sincerity. he then points upawrds  to the little girl maya who is 16  which makes her shirk away from him. The finger point is an angry gesture and the upward finger in the context in which he is using it is incongrous with what he is saying. This  further indicates how contrived and phony this is.

Screen Shot 2017-01-30 at 9.40.29 PM.png

Then he points to Hamza and reads that  he turned 14 yesterday, Haza 8, and Hara 6 as he lays his hands on these two younger children which obviously makes the older  16 year old child feel uncomfortable as you can see by her expression ,

The Schumer bangs on the podium with his hand as he says the family arrived a month ago This would have been an angry gesture but there is no anger in his voice He then elks out a smile as he says their parents ( in laws) are American citizens.  So even though he is feigning anger his gestures and facial expression are totally inconsistent with the words he is saying which means he is being phony and manipulative. He even stammers and stumbles as he says what section  in the  Bronx the parents live.

Screen Shot 2017-01-30 at 9.47.41 PM.png

He then uses another phy inconsistent gestures as he raises his hands and says that Trump wants us to believe that all  immigrants are terrorists when they are not but rather like these families. First of all Trump never said this and Schumer knows this . That his why one hand shows his fingers spread out and the other hand shows his fingers close together.If his gestures indicted honestly his hands would BOTH display  open  fingers in his gesturing.

Screen Shot 2017-01-30 at 9.51.36 PM.png

He then leaks out as smile as he says they aren’t a threat to American but a promise to America. WE all know these people are not a threat to America and he knows it too. he also knows that these are not the people Trump is referring to in terms of being a threat to America. That is why Schumer leaks out a smile as an indication of dupid delight. he knows exactly what he is doing- being manipulative and trying to pull at people’s heartstrings by using this family. But it is not working as his phoniness belies him.

Then he looks down and taps two times on the podium which makes no sense.  he then looks down and fumbles through his papers as he reads a quote from the Old Testament ( Exodus) the  New Testament ( Matthew) and then he brings up a quote by Catholic comments  Pope Frances ( who in my view has no business sticking his two cents into politics especially when his own flock  of priests are a complete disaster with raping young children and destroying them forever.)As he reads what Pope Frances says he raises his awkward finger and says “This is the Pope speaking” As you can see from the expression the children’s faces they could care less. They are bored and can’t wait to get out of their and end their exploitation.

The Schumer embarrassingly invokes the name of his dead relative Ellis whom he was named after  who was named after Ellis Island. As she does this is  manipulative and corney behavior shows clearly.

Screen Shot 2017-01-30 at 10.09.00 PM.png

Then for his final act he musters up a FAKE CRY with no tears as he calls trump mean spirited.

Screen Shot 2017-01-30 at 10.10.22 PM.png As you can see there are no dripping tears, He just held his eyes open without clinking which caused the to glisten. But it was NOT a real cry. if that was the case you would ee a downward turn in his mouth which was not evident.

And then we see what his real agenda is-  getting some press time and promoting himself as he mentions he is a Senator from NY and how he will fight and scrap with all of his being to overturn Trump’s directive.

The bottom line is that the cry was phony and his dragging these poor families on stage with him was contrived and manipulative to further his own agenda.

 

 

Stop the Rumors! Trump Did NOT Make Milania Sad During Swearing In Context is Key in Reading Body Language

Context is key  with regard to any body language analysis. So many people have been asking me to comment on why Melania looked so sad after Donald turned around at the inauguration ceremony when Rev. Graham spoke.

After scrutinizing the clip frame by frame  and looking at Melania’s behavior facial expression and body language BEFORE Donald turned around, DURING the time he turned around and AFTER the time he turned around,    I can assure you that he did not say anything to upset her.

The reason I am so sure of it is that if she was upset with what he said  it would have happened immediately at the split moment it happened not any time later and certainly not a second or two later.

Screen Shot 2017-01-26 at 4.31.11 AM.png

Melania wore the same upset looking facial expression people are speaking about well before Donald turned around as you can see her with somber expression and head bowed down. In fact in the crowd, she is one of few people with a bowed head. 

Screen Shot 2017-01-27 at 6.14.41 AM.png

Melania looks sad BEFORE Rev. Graham spoke.Even Ivanka looks somber as he starts his benediction.

Screen Shot 2017-01-27 at 6.18.41 AM.png

Her head is bowed BEFORE Donald turned around and as Rev. Gram said” in the bible it is a sign that when it rains…”

Screen Shot 2017-01-27 at 6.21.32 AM.png

As soon as Rev. Graham said ” And it started t0 rain Mr. President when you came to the platform,” Trump immediately turned around and smiled at Melania as Ivanka is wearing an expression of being choked up. In essence,  BOTH Donald and Melania are having a positive and personal moment together .   

Screen Shot 2017-01-27 at 6.23.55 AM.png

They both book at one another eye to eye as Melania nods and Ivanka is now happy as well, cocking her head so that she can get a better view of her dad. 

Screen Shot 2017-01-27 at 6.27.33 AM.png

Trump uttered something and he immediately  turned around. Since his back was to the camera we can never know what he said. Therefore I cannot utilize my lip reading skills to decipher exactly what he said and I cannot speculate as I ONLY report what I actually see and what I actually hear. As he has turned around, Melaina is still smiling as you can see her cheeks raised and eyes still squinted and teeth showing in a genuine smile.

Then as Trump is fully turned around, her expression immediately changes. In my view, she may have just  processed the powerful statement Rev. Graham made about the rain which occurred just as Trump spoke being an auspicious sign. Perhaps the reality was beginning to set in that her husband is REALLY going to be President, that she will be First lady and that life as she once knew it will never be the same.

The reason I DO NOT believe he said something awful to her that made her upset as so many lay people, non professionals and Trump haters have wrongly remarked is because her reaction time was not immediate. When someone says something horrible to you, as they speak those words your facial expression changes. It does NOT change a second or two later. In essence, Melania reverted back to her previous somber expression that she had on her face well before Trump turned around.

Screen Shot 2017-01-27 at 6.38.23 AM.png

What even further confirms what I am saying is the fact that she turns away to look into the crowd as she processes the reality of the moment and how countless  people are standing before her,  witnessing her husband becoming the next President of the United States.

Screen Shot 2017-01-27 at 6.40.42 AM.png

Then she turns her head toward the front as she looks out into the crowd, continuing  with the serious expression on her face. 

Screen Shot 2017-01-27 at 6.42.25 AM.png

She then immediately  looks down after viewing and processing the crowd and the seriousness of the situation.

Screen Shot 2017-01-27 at 6.43.58 AM.png

Now she looks at the crowd once again as further evidence she is   processing the enormity of the situation and what is going on.

Screen Shot 2017-01-27 at 6.45.54 AM.png

Then she looks down, once again ,engaging in the processing of the situation.

Screen Shot 2017-01-27 at 6.46.56 AM.png

Next, she turns her head and looks down. It has now been a FULL 6 SECONDS since Trump allegedly said something to her . It does NOT take 6 seconds to process being upset. It would have happened at the moment he spoke and immediately afterwards, which it did not. 

Screen Shot 2017-01-27 at 6.49.20 AM.png

She looks down and glances up at the crowd again.

Screen Shot 2017-01-27 at 6.50.30 AM.png

Then she looks straight on as her head is slightly bowed. 

Screen Shot 2017-01-27 at 6.50.39 AM.png

And now she turns with her head held high as she stands in line with her husband, looking right at the back of him. So now, she has processed the moment and is now aligned with her husband as she stands behind him having processed and accepted that she is the new First Lady and he is the new President.

Context is key when reading people’s body language. A little information and a little knowledge can be dangerous and create rumors which was the case here. Melania had a somber expression before Donald turned around and spoke to her. She was thrilled during and immediately after he spoke to her.  Only seconds later, as she processed the reality of what Rev. Graham was saying as she scanned the crowds, all the while being engaged in her own thought process did her expression look somber.

So what may have looked like her being upset at what Donald might have said to her is NOT the case at all. 

As you know I am not political and I ONLY fairly report what I  ACTUALLY SEE and what I HEAR,  just as I have done throughout the campaign and now that Trump is President.  I have NO BIAS and I am keeping it OBJECTIVE at all times so don’t try to think for me and tell me what is in my mind or  tell me I am biased as I am the ONLY one that can tell you DIRECTLY what I am thinking and what my bias is or is not. I have  absolutely  nothing to hide, no one to impress and I am not beholden to anyone. So if you want to spew hate towards Trump, do it elsewhere not with me.

I report and continue to report ALL that I see whether or not it is flattering to Trump or not. In fact, I recently remarked that I didn’t like it when Trump walked in front of Melania as she was left holding the Tiffany package, while Trump sprinted towards the Obamas.  Whether he was caught up in the excitement of the day and in the moment or whether the Secret Service told Melania to stand back and wait, or whether  this was some type of protocol, I didn’t like it at all as it looked very bad to me as a sign of rudeness. In Western culture, we do NOT walk in front of a friend, spouse, or mate, and leave them trailing behind, regardless of their sex. Doing so has very bad connotations. So NEVER accuse me of being biased.

I HATE rumors and false reporting and having been a trained journalist at the number one School of Journalism in the world, USC, I vilify ANY reporter who sticks their bias into the equation like Martha Radditz who was almost in tears during her reporting on ABC of the  inauguration and who in my view should be, using Trump’s term,” FIRED” 

I also HATE it when reporters, amatures, non professionals do body language analysis and do it wrongly. It is DANGEROUS and IRRESPONSIBLE!  Just because someone has a degree in Psychology it does NOT make them a BODY LANGUAGE EXPERT!  It takes years and years of work, research and experience like I have done and Alan Pease and Paul Ekman, David Given, and even ex FBI agent Joe Navarro. I have the utmost respect for all have done. These are  my colleagues I have the utmost respect for them. All of their backgrounds are solid and they know of that they speak, just like I do. Many others in my view,  do not have the expertise, experience ,or background and as a result make dangerous and irresponsible comments. 

I was on the BBC last week with a Psychology Professor from OXFORD who knew NOTHING what he was talking about regarding body language . It was embarrassing to even listen to this man.

I am thrilled that Trump is fighting back and busting the irresponsible press that, many members whom we saw having direct ties to Hillary from Martha Radditz to Rachel Maddow,  Wolf Blitzer, Jake Tapper, other CNN cronies and even Megyn Kelly. I personally can never trust ANY of their reporting now and tune out whenever they speak. I have lost all respect for them as they should know better.

 

Body language reveals insight into relationship Between Melania and Donald

 

Body language expert Patti Wood said there were only a few moments that showed love between the pair. Picture: AFP/Saul Loeb.

President and Mrs. Trump couldn’t be a better match as you can gauge a lot from  their body language. They are a perfect match even though  come from different backgrounds.  She’s very accommodating, and he has a large ego and needs a lot of attention.

Donald Trump could never be with a wife who is competing for the limelight, and so for his personality type and her personality type, they couldn’t be a better match.

Screen Shot 2017-01-24 at 9.20.52 PM.png

Melania understands her husband very well and looks up to him in admiration.  She seems to be willing to put up with a lot.

Donald Trump ran ahead, leaving his wife, First Lady Melania Trump, behind. Picture: Mark Wilson/Getty Images.

That includes leaving her trailing behind as he made his way towards former President Obama and Michelle. Maybe he was caught up in the moment and the excitement of the day, but to me it was still rude and cannot be overlooked. Personally, I would find it quite unsettling  if my man did that the me. In Western culture it is considered rude to walk in front of someone and leave then trailing behind.

We have come from eight years of the Obamas where we have see the opposite  of Melania and Donald’s dynamic as Barack constantly showered Michelle with affection and adoration.   In fact Barack kissed Michelle’s hand and comforted her as they were leaving for the helicopter. he sensed she was sad and his kiss was a reflection of how much attention he paid to her feelings.

Body language expert Dr Lillian Glass said you cannot compare the relationship between the Trumps and the Obamas. Picture: AFP/Jim Watson.

In all fairness,  you cannot really compare the relationship between the Trumps and the Obamas because the two couples have stemmed from very different circumstances.

 

Barack and Michelle married young. She was his boss, and they fell in love so they have had  a whole life together Trump, on the other hand, has been married two times before, so it’s a whole different kettle of fish.

US President Donald Trump and the first lady Melania Trump dance at the Liberty Ball at the Washington DC Convention Center. Picture: AFP/Molly Riley.

Melania is the opposite of Donald in that she appears to be more  reserved as she shies away from the limelight. Donald, on the other hand  is more outgoing, outspoken, and craves the limelight. That is why they work well together as a couple and will continue to do so throughout Donald’s Presidency.   They are a perfect case example of how opposites can not only attract but they can work out long term.

 

Dr Lillian Glass, who has been studying body language for three decades, said the Trumps ‘couldn’t be a better match’. Picture: AP Photo/Evan Vucci.

 No matter what your political views are you have to admit that they do make a stunning couple. Aside from Jacqueline Kennedy, no one has  looked more beautiful, glamourous , poised and  so well put together as Melania. The dress she wore to the Swearing In Ceremony was Jackie Kennedy inspired ( the collar) but a clever variation thereof. Fashion-wise there is no doubt that she will be an inspiration, just like Kate Middleton.

 

Rosie’s Tweeted Apology to Melania Insincere

screen-shot-2016-11-29-at-3-37-11-amAnalysis of Rosie O’Donnell’s tweet where she allegedly apologized to Melania for asking if Baron was autistic, showed insincerity and  embarrassment at all the backlash she received.   O’Donnell wrote the following tweet:

 “I apologize to @MELANIATRUMP – i was insensitive in my RT – i am sorry for the pain i caused – it was not my intent – i am truly sorry.”

Look at the i’s. She begins it with a capital I but in three other places she uses the small  “i” indicating that she is embarrassed and ashamed. It shows a lack of self confidence in her statement. But in my view, she is embarrassed not by what she said, but embarrassed  because she got caught and the backlash was so strong against her. People who were even her fans let her have it for calling out her nemesis’ 10 year old son as being autistic.

As further indication of her embarrassment, she got rid of her twitter account to the public and made it private. that is a huge indication that she is retreating in shame from the public who lambasted her.

When she says she was insensitive in her RT (retweet) she is attempting to share the blame in stating that it wasn’t really her fault because she just tweeted what someone else tweeted in the first place. Also the use of the word “insensitive” shows insincerity. Had she said I was “wrong” it my retweet it would have been a stronger more real apology.

She said I am sorry for the pain I caused. What about saying that she is sorry for tweeting misinformation. In saying this she is making it about her -and showing how she things she has so much power to cause another pain. If she was truly sincere she would have said I am sorry “you were hurt.” It makes you wonder if she did indeed enjoy causing that pain. After all, she despises Trump. So anything to hurt him- like hurting his wife and his son would certainly not cause her to feel sorry. She also  doesn’t say she was in pain for hurting Melania.

Also there is too much repetition of the same phrases and same theme  ie. “I apologize”, “i am sorry”   “i am truly sorry”which smacks of deception. The word “truly” means just the opposite here.There is too much information and the adjective reflects that she is trying too hard to convince Melania how sorry she is.

The most telling tell of all is that she did not even  mention Baron. He is the one that really deserves her apology.

 

 

Toxic Rosie O’Donnell Insinuates Baron Trump is Autistic as Tweet and Video Show How A Little Information In the Wrong Hands Can Be Dangerous

screen-shot-2016-11-29-at-3-38-18-am

The ongoing Donald Trump vs Rosie O’Donnell Feud (which Rosie started when she attacked Trump’s looks when she was on the View)  took huge turn when O’Donnell hit below the belt and had the audacity to bring 10 year old Baron Trump into the fray with a  claim that  he may be autistic.

All I can say is HOW DARE HER? She is not a doctor, psychologist, therapist, neurologist, behavior expert, or even a body language expert. Her diagnostic technique is not formal or professional. Instead, she outs her own 3 year old  daughter and says that her daughter was recently diagnosed with autism and that she recognizes the signs in Baron. Well her daughter is not Baron and she did not formally diagnose the boy.

I am  appalled at Rosie  for even bringing this up in her horrible tweet :

Barron Trump Autistic? if so – what an amazing opportunity to bring attention to the AUTISM epidemic https://t.co/Acgy1Qxyqi via @YouTube

— Rosie (@Rosie) November 22, 2016

Apparently there was a video that was posted by a  YouTube user named  James Hunter, titled “Is Barron Trump Autistic? #StopTheBullying” which apparently  shows examples of Barron’s behavior at public events. The video has been viewed more than 2.5 million times since it was posted Nov. 11.

It showed Barron clapping at the Republican National Convention and points out “his hands are moving erratically and not touching each other.” The video also shows him “making strange movements in his seat, typical in children with autism.”

“One of the biggest signs of autism is a lack of social skills and understanding,” the video said. “When Barron came on stage at the RNC his anti-social behavior was on display.”

It goes on to show Barron standing blank-faced on stage as his parents and siblings smile and clap. Then it shows Barron shrugging off an affectionate squeeze from his father.

In my view, this  is how a little information in the wrong hands- the hands of James Hunter who is also not a doctor can go awry. This incident also shows how someone with a huge following like Rosie O’Donnell can create even more havoc.

screen-shot-2016-11-29-at-3-37-11-am

The ONLY ones who know if Baron has autism is his neurologist, physician, parents, and family members- no one else! Baron’s mother Melania has fought back and has threatened to sue the video maker and made suggesting that Rosie may be next in line for perpetuating what she claims in a lie as he insists Baron does not have autism.That is the right thing to do in order to put a stop to this potentially damaging labeling behavior, especially if it is not true as Melania says.

To play devil’s advocate- what if he does have it? Why put Baron on display and label him with something he may or may not have that can have serious implications on his future?

He may just be a shy or introverted type of young man. One thing for sure is that he was very disciplined as he stood up on the stage for such a long time without moving around while his President – Elect father gave his victory speech. Body language wise it was impressive behavior from any 10 year old child  or any adult, whether they were autistic or not.

As far as Baron looking blank- faced as the video stated, there may be other reasons for this besides autism. He may be simply uncomfortable with large crowds and with being suddenly thrown into the limelight.  He may be unhappy about having to be thrust out in public which may show on his face. Some children relish and bask in the limelight, while others retreat.

When the video said he shrugged off an affectionate squeeze from his father, I say  that many ten year old boys do not welcome open affection in public as it often embarrasses them. So in my view,  there was nothing atypical or “autistic” about that. The same holds true for the reported “strange clapping.” Personally, I didn’t see anything strange about Baron’s clapping. Once again it may seem odd to him that he has to now  be clapping for his dad in a context in whch he is not familiar.”

Baron may simply be a shy young man, just  like his mother Melania seems to be. He may not be comfortable in the public eye like his sister Ivanka or brothers Donny and Eric. Instead, he may also be shy like  his sister Tiffany.

Being in the public eye and knowing how to comport yourself takes  lot of time and practice. Even the best of celebrities feel uncomfortable. I should know as I have treated many of them personally. Throughout the years I have helped countless high profile people whom you would assume would be comfortable and at ease in any public arena, with their speaking and body language during talk show appearances, Academy Award speeches, and public speaking performances. So it is needless to say that a 10 year old boy may not be comfortable in this arena.

And let’s say for argument’s  sake that Baron may be on the spectrum. I say, “so what!” I know many incredibly successful people who were diagnosed and who function quite well. In fact I just had lunch with a wonderful producer-director last week who told me of his diagnosis. It certainly didn’t stop him from getting Emmy’s an Academy award, having a loving wife with whom he has been married for several decades, and two happy, well adjusted and successful children. It didn’t stop me from wanting to do some business with him. I also know a very successful attorney who hates  public gatherings and social events. At one time he confided in me that as an adult he was diagnosed with being on the spectrum. Once again his diagnosis didn’t hurt his career or his appeal from the ladies, who evidently found his shyness and perceived awkwardness as endearing. Comedian Jerry Seinfeld has publicly admitted he may have the disorder and it certainly didn’t hurt him as he has thrived with an incredibly successful comedy career, a beautiful wife and children.

If Baron does happen to be on the spectrum, he may in fact  be the “new normal”. In  2014 the CDC observed 1 in 68 births had a spectrum disorder. In 2015 the figure rose to 1 in 45. The figures are not yet in for 2016 but there does appear to be an increase in the disorder.

Whether Baron does or does not have the disorder, he needs to be off limits, just like the Obamas made Sasha and Malika off limits. That is why the Clintons tried to make Chelsea off limits when Bill was President. I will never forget how horribly cruel the press and the public was to their daughter Chelsea when she was younger. They constantly  commented on how ugly she looked and how awkward she appeared in her behavior. And the end result is that she grew up to be poised and attractive with a loving husband and two children and there is apparent talk about her hitting the political stage in the future.

There has been considerable backlash against Rosie O’Donnell for her comments and rightfully so. Her friends and her foes have let it be known that her behavior has transcended politics and personal feuding. Now she ventured into seriously unacceptable and dangerous territory.

 

 

 

 



 

 

 

 

Body Language and Speech Shows A Very Different Donald Trump on 60 Minutes- More Subdued and Sombre

Screen Shot 2016-11-13 at 6.26.44 PM.png

First and foremost, I was so impressed with 60 Minutes journalist Leslie Stahl. She was professional, as she has been throughout the campaign. She was gracious, elegant,  and a pleasure to watch. Other journalists should take heed and follow her example.

Now that Donald Trump is President Elect, I believe someone has to tell him to clean up his makeup.Not to be mean but he looks like an albino racoon with all that non-made up white skin around his eyes. I think that the orange hue that people have been discussing since he decided  to run for office is a spray tan.  Perhaps the reason his eyes look so white may be due to his using those eye protection goggles after getting the spray tan. Since his skin is tanned or oranged and he doesn’t need a full on makeup applied. So, he may want to carry a little liquid makeup with him to put under his eyes and on his lids. He may also want to get some dark blond or light brown mascara to bring out his lashes. Since he is vain and is concerned about looks and looking his best, this information can improve his on-camera appearance.

Trump said that on election night when he won, he went completely silent. I mentioned in previous blogs that he was stunned by his win as well and was taking the time to process everything. His body language showed this. That is why he looked as though he was going to cry when he arrived on stage for his victory speech. It was and still is a shock to him. He said that he realized that this is a whole different life for him now.

Perhaps that is why throughout the interview we saw a completely different Donald Trump than we saw on television or on the campaign trail.   There was no loud tones or blustering. There was no over the top rhetoric. In essence, there was no showmanship that we have seen him display for the past 18 months.

When he spoke about Hillary’s call to him, he said it was a lovely call and imagined it was a tough one for her to make. He was very soft spoken and gracious when he mentioned Hillary, which leads me to believe that all the anger he displayed towards her and all the threats he made to her  ( like locking her up) seem to have dissipated. He even spoke of Bill Clinton’s call, saying that it was an amazing run. When asked if he had any regrets for the nasty tone of the campaign he looked down and thought about it.

While he said he had no regrets because it got him here  to the Presidency, his body language said that he did indeed have some regrets. After hearing him speak, it seemed to me that deep down he does respect Hillary’s political experience and he does actually like her. After all, he has known and supported her for decades. She even said how he would make a good candidate to run for President and he has sung her praises for years. He then said he wished it was nicer and softer and more on policy,which supports what I just observed in terms of his body language.

Regarding his meeting with Obama, which he said could have lasted 4 hours, he said Obama told him the good things and the bad things. He wanted to learn all he could about Obama’s views on the middle east because he will be inheriting this. But as he spoke about Obama, there was not a smile or any warmth. I think he was being professional in his statements, but I stick to my previous observations, which I shared with the media that there is no love lost between the two. He said he found Obama to be terrific, very smart and very nice, which may be all  true. But  as he said this he shook his head “no,” which may indicate that even though he may think those things about Obama, there is  perhaps still a negative charge after all that was said  during the campaign. It is clear that Obama may have welcomed into the White House on a superficial level, but not  on a deep level. If that were the case, we would  see more smiles and facial enthusiasm.

Leslie then said that he looked pretty sober sitting in the White House with Obama. He then replied that he is a sober person. Perhaps this sober person is the real Donald Trump and the one we saw on the campaign trail was the showman Donald Trump who riled people up to get their vote. He then said his actions in the White House  showed respect for the office and the President. I believe that. I believe that his going to the White House and sitting along site of the President gave him a  “huuuuuge ” reality check.

Leslie Stahl brilliantly asked him if it was awkward being with one another in light of what they each said about one another. Trump said they never discussed it. But deep down those comments can never be forgotten as words leave indelible scars. He said from his standpoint there was  zero awkwardness. But from Obama’s standpoint there was clearly some awkwardness.

He also said that he will conduct himself well in the White House, but he may be rougher if the situation calls for it, which seemed to be an honest assessment of himself. He also said he didn’t want to be that monotoned character, which I agree with. In essence, he was saying that he wanted to be authentic.

Here’s what he said we can expect in his Presidency.

  1. There will be a wall and a fence in certain areas.
  2. He just said he would deport gang members and drug dealers deported  ( 2 million of them) not regular good people as he just wants to secure the borders.
  3. He will lower taxes.
  4. He will change health care to make it more affordable.
  5.  He wants to get rid of lobbyists and special interest groups.

When Leslie said all his transition team is lobbyists, he said that is all the people who are down there as that is what is wrong with the system. He phumphered a bit as she busted him on this as it is a real issue for him. It may have sounded hypocritical to those listening to it. He said the whole place is one big lobbyist and he wants to get rid of them even though he is relying on them now and wants to phase it out.

6. He will have term limits.                                                                                                                             7. There will be restrictions on foreign money coming into the county.                                          8. He will quickly appoint someone to the supreme court who will be pro life and pro second amendment                                                                                                                                         9.If Roe vs Wade were overturned he said it would go back to the states.                                        10. He will continue to use twitter  in moderation as a form of modern communication.  11.He will be focusing on jobs, health care, the border, and immigration  as opposed to putting Hillary in jail. He also said he didn’t want to hurt them as they are good people.       12. He will find out more about Comey when he  speaks with him directly.                                    13. He won’t take any vacation.                                                                                                                     14. He will only accept $1 as salary for being President.

When asked point blank, if he was intimidated or scared by the gravity of the enormous situation he is taking on, he answered “no” without hesitation, which leads me to believe that he feels confident he is up to it and can handle the job of the Presidency.

She said people are scared and are demonstrating right now. He said it is only because they don’t know him. This may very well be true as all we know is what we heard on the campaign,  in the media, and what he said 11 years ago on a bus to Billy Bush about women and their privates.

He believes many of the the demonstrators are professional protesters.He also said he would tell people to not be afraid and that there is a double standard with him and Hillary’s supporters. He also firmly told his supporters to not make racial slurs or incite violence as he said his aim is to bring the country together.

In fact, he looked right into the camera and told everyone to STOP IT! He  was talking about his supporters stopping any harassment towards blacks, muslims, and latinos.

This was a completely Donald Trump.This was a much more subdued and professional Donald Trump. He spoke openly and was forthright. Now we will have to wait and see what he does.
