The real reason Donald Trump lies
 

The president’s greatest ambitions are neither financial nor political — they’re psychological, writes Stephen Grosz

We all lie, but we don’t lie like President Trump. He is the most extravagant, reckless, inexhaustible fibber of our era — the panjandrum of porky pies.

Because we all lie, we may be tempted to think we understand why Donald Trump does, or even that he lies for the same reasons we do.

He doesn’t.

Last April, a 34-year-old woman I’ve been working with for several years told me that she hadn’t been honest with me. “Not big lies,” Ms A said, “I just couldn’t tell you certain things.” It took us some time to understand why she brought herself to her psychoanalysis in this particular way.

Just curious, does anyone know the penalty for treason? I think it's execution or deportation. Is that correct? 

Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United Statesor elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.

(June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 807; Pub. L. 103–322, title XXXIII, § 330016(2)(J), Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2148.)
 
If you are American, don't know where you would be deported too.... but Canada seems to be oft noted to be a default location for many, so that might be an option.  However, I would probably migrate before the charges were laid!

Just to confirm, do we all agree that working with a foreign power to destabilize the United States for economic gain would count as treason?

"Giving aid or comfort to the enemies of the US". Guess it would depend on the legal interpretation of "enemies".  The destabilizing part would probably cinch it though.

Since we're not currently at war, I don't think we have any official enemies. Russia has not usually been an ally in recent years. However, taking actions with intent to destabilize certainly does seem like an action of an enemy. 

And those destabilizing actions might turn out to be unrecoverable. At best, it'll take years or decades to recover.

May this woman never lose her optimism and spunk. She gives me hope for the future of this country. 

Believe it or not, a lot of our young people think like Miss Occasio-Cortez: that government exists to serve the people, not the corporations. 

The Trump people are mostly over 65. Eventually they will die off, if we can survive that long.
