Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager can’t guarantee that the Democratic presidential candidate will hold a press conference between now and the election and laughed off questions about why she doesn’t gaggle with reporters.Speaking at a luncheon hosted by the Wall Street Journal, campaign manager Robby Mook burst out laughing when asked if Clinton would hold court with reporters before Election Day.“We’ll see,” he said.Clinton has still not held a press conference this year.
Hillary has a problem. Her brain is having difficulty coping with the stress of confrontational interactions. This may be due to some sort of neurological damage. It may be because she is such a nasty bitch that nobody around her ever stands up to her, and provides confrontational stimuli.
The result is the same. Her brain cannot cope with stress and surprise, nor is it developing the ability to adapt to it, because it never sees it.
It is as if her amygdala were a puny muscle that can’t lift any weight. Because her muscle is weak, she has placed it in an immobilizing cast to protect it. The end result is that it has only atrophied even more.
Now she is about to face a more-than-hour-long debate against our God Emperor And Savior Of The Republic, His Holiness Donald J. Trump – the master of the amygdala hijack. There is no way she can face that with no preparation, unless she is massively medicated.
What Trump’s camp should do is, when negotiating over the rules of the debate, insist uncompromisingly on as long a debate as possible. The amygdala loses function as it becomes exhausted, the longer it is used.
So the longer the debate, the more her amygdala will likely burn out with exhaustion, or the more likely her meds will either begin to wear off and send her into a refractory state of increased amygdala dysfunction, or she will have to be over-medicated at the start, producing visible symptoms which will make people see her as weird. My guess is one condition her camp will try to demand is as short a debate as possible.
Whether Trump uses his insistence on length to gain other concessions he wants, or whether he actually insists on length to destroy her amygdala more completely during the debate, he will end up coming out ahead in the end.
I really can’t believe the good luck of the movement to have all of these variables come together at the same time. The greatest Alpha leader since Reagan, who just happens to be a master of psychology, and the weakest cognitive structure I have ever seen in politics as his opponent, all as the environmental conditions are perfectly in his favor.
