THE LITTLE MAN IN THE WHITE HOUSE, by Art Smukler MD, author & psychiatrist

My best teachers and friends are people who listen and learn from what they hear, read and see. They are big enough to admit they might be wrong and big enough to correct any flawed thinking.

The biggest people are those who learn from their mistakes and are happy to adjust their minds to new ideas. Knowledge is a compilation of information gathered from many sources to gain an accurate portrayal of what is truth and what is a lie.

Big people learn from those who disagree with them. They respect science and understand why respect for others is so important.

Leaders who are great lead by example. They understand how diversity is not only necessary for intellectual growth but essential for our growth as a nation.

A leader who doesn’t understand sacrifice for the common good is a fool. John McCain sacrificed years of his life to bring pride and courage to the US. Once again, Donald Trump disrespected him and in doing so disrespected all of us.

Donald Trump only understands self-aggrandizement. He is too small to respect others who know more and offer things that he is not capable of providing. NO ONE KNOWS EVERYTHING!

Donald Trump is a little man who spends his life putting down anyone who doesn’t agree with him. The Party of Trump is a disgrace. Marco Rubio who now kisses the ring of the man who called him names and put down his family should evaluate whether his behavior is really something that makes him proud.

If you enjoyed reading, Inside the Mind of a Psychiatrist, you might also enjoy Dr. Smukler’s novels, Chasing Backwards, a psychological murder mystery, Skin Dance, a mystery, and The Man with a Microphone in his Ear. All are available as paperbacks and eBooks.

  1. As an Independent and a man who is an awareness junkie it is now 2.5 years in and the feeling i get is something i would percieve is a civil unrest from both sides and as Trumps ratings have soared through his innocents of collusion and as the 2 guilty antagonist Chuck and Nancy have suddenly doing there job they were voted to do they leave a country without a voice to to deny trump. No Democrat will ever see Trumps succecses and there are MANY. Oh by the way you cant win the presidency without lying to appease the ignorant. So hes not perfect and he can be an asshole “oh sure: but he hates to Lose not to Dems but other COUNTRIES taken advantage of past presidents and I stood by them too because infighting Breeds weakness ect ect ect. Hey in 1.5 yrs you can vote for Hillary if she can walk to the podium without help.


  2. Art,
    The POTUS doesn’t learn from his mistakes. Look at the multiple bankruptcies and busted marriages for starters. He doesn’t respect science, especially climate science or the combined evidence of the intelligence agencies. He will never change which is why a full court press get out the vote campaign for November is crucial to remove this madman from office.

    My best,



  3. You nailed it on this one. Trump is a petty man with a huge ego who is, I believe, so unsure of himself, he has to be constantly told how good he is, and I suspect he fears he’s inferior, which is why he bullies others.
