Poor little presidential snowflake.

Speaking in an interview with Morning Joe on Wednesday, the TV personality and pundit, who has moved in similar circles to President Trump, said he has been told that Trump needs to hear positive things when he enters a room.
“Donald is all about being loved… and he’s got his 40 percent now he’s going to turn and be Ronald Reagan and he’s going to have everybody because that’s what he wants… and he’s done the opposite,” Deutsch said in a discussion of whether the president had acted like a dealmaker since taking office, suggesting that he had been surprised by Trump’s behavior.
“An interesting anecdote that somebody told me when they were at his country club in Bedminster that Trump was about to walk into the room and some of the Secret Service guys came up to the people he was going to see and said, ‘hey when you see the president, say positive things, you know, pump him up,” Deutsch continued.
“They were basically fluffers in the room, in effect. I just said that word. Didn’t I? Metaphorically, of course,” he added, in a reference to the role of “fluffer” on adult film sets, which involves ensuring male stars maintain an erection prior to filming.
“Donald Trump is at the point he’s so fragile and cannot ever, ever be in any interaction, in any exchange in any room that’s just not pure lionization, canonization, and it defies any left-brain logic,” he added.
I am not a fan of Donny Deutsch, but I know he is friends with Michael Cohen, and other Trump insiders, so I believe he knows what he is talking about here.
Can you imagine being so thin-skinned that you could only face a crowd of people willing to kiss your ass and genuflect in your direction?
This is why Trump keeps holding those Nazi-like rallies because he is so desperate for positive reinforcement and so terrified of receiving a truthful response from a non-sycophantic crowd.
