Ty Cobb, a former White Home lawyer who served as particular counsel to Donald Trump in 2017 and 2018, referred to as the disgraced former president “a deeply wounded narcissist” in an interview with CBS News reporter Major Garrett on the “Takeout” podcast.
“My private view is that it’s much less a personality difficulty than a character defect,” Cobb informed Garrett. “I consider former President Trump to be a deeply wounded narcissist, and he’s typically incapable of performing apart from in his perceived self-interest, or for revenge.”
Cobb informed Garrett that narcissism and revenge had been “the 2 compelling instincts that information his actions” and inherently prevented Trump from admitting he misplaced the 2020 election — and from listening to his personal advisers.
“Sadly, I feel he’s gone via some gifted advisers, good advisers, chewed ’em up, and is working with approach too many individuals who inform him what he desires to listen to,” Cobb informed Garrett.
The previous White Home lawyer stated “abject narcissism” saved Trump from believing his former Lawyer Normal William Barr, in addition to the Justice Division completely, who repeatedly informed Trump that widespread voter fraud wasn’t responsible for his loss to Joe Biden in 2020.
Cobb recently told NBC News that Trump has been cashing in on that “huge lie,” which “has introduced him tens of millions in donations, which some proof suggests might have been mishandled.” He additionally bemoaned how many Republican officials continue to propagate Trump’s lie.
“I feel it’s so tragic,” Cobb informed Garrett. “I criticized the present administration modestly earlier by saying they’ve no real interest in therapeutic — Trump has no real interest in therapeutic, both. I don’t assume, sadly, that the way forward for America is enhanced by both place.”
Cobb added that the “Justice Division has signaled that they intend to prosecute” Trump “it doesn’t matter what.” Whereas many pundits consider Trump’s illegal mishandling of classified documents will spur costs, Cobb is assured his downfall will come elsewhere.
“I feel the president is in critical authorized water not a lot due to the search, however due to the obstructive exercise he took in reference to the January 6 proceeding and the makes an attempt to intrude within the election rely,” Cobb informed Garrett.
