Trump may have played nice during the campaign but his true nature is emerging—as it did in his golf-course feud with biographer Harry Hurt III at Mar-a-Lago.
The Donald Trump few Americans know emerged briefly a few days ago – a Trump distinctly at odds with the façade created for the 2016 presidential campaign – which hid the nature of Trump’s character and much of his unsavory conduct.
Now that façade may develop cracks since he no longer needs to woo voters – freeing Trump to act as many around him know him to be but cannot talk about because they signed lifetime confidentiality agreements.
One of those who is free to talk is Harry Hurt III – who like me is a Trump biographer.
Hurt got a harsh taste of Trump in victory on Dec. 30 at the Trump golf course near Mar-A-Lago in Florida.‘You are among the few people that understand how fucked up this guy is’ Hurt told me as he recounted the meeting.‘He is a complete fucking psycho – but most people don’t know that’.
Indeed most journalists have failed to convey the depths of Trump’s erratic personality – just as they have failed to report on his long deep and profitable entanglements with many violent felons – mob associates and most significantly a major cocaine trafficker who supplied Trump with his helicopters and whose criminal case was handled in very unusual ways.
