White House forced Navy to hide U.S.S. John McCain during Trump visit to Japan

The Wall Street Journal reported that the White House asked the Untied States Navy to hide or obscure the U.S.S. John McCain destroyer from sight during President Trump’s state trip to Japan, so that Whiney Baby PissyPants wouldn’t get upset and throw a temper tantrum:

In addition to instructions for the proper landing areas for helicopters and preparation for the USS Wasp—where the president was scheduled to speak—the official issued a third directive: “USS John McCain needs to be out of sight.” [..] A tarp was hung over the ship’s name ahead of the president’s trip, according to photos reviewed by the Journal, and sailors were directed to remove any coverings from the ship that bore its name.

After the tarp was taken down, a barge was moved closer to the ship, obscuring its name. Sailors on the ship, who typically wear caps bearing its name, were given the day off during Mr. Trump’s visit, people familiar with the matter said.

The White House denied the story. Then Washington Post and New York Times independently of the WSJ, and each other, confirmed the story as true.

Couldn’t ask for a more perfect reminder that Trump is mentally ill:

Narcissistic Personality Disorder

  • Have an exaggerated sense of self-importance
  • Have a sense of entitlement and require constant, excessive admiration
  • Expect to be recognized as superior even without achievements that warrant it
  • Exaggerate achievements and talents
  • Be preoccupied with fantasies about success, power, brilliance, beauty or the perfect mate
  • Believe they are superior and can only associate with equally special people
  • Monopolize conversations and belittle or look down on people they perceive as inferior
  • Expect special favors and unquestioning compliance with their expectations
  • Take advantage of others to get what they want
  • Have an inability or unwillingness to recognize the needs and feelings of others
  • Be envious of others and believe others envy them
  • Behave in an arrogant or haughty manner, coming across as conceited, boastful and pretentious
  • Insist on having the best of everything — for instance, the best car or office

Might as well replace NPD with Donald Trump’s name.
