    Hope this clarifies----

    I reckon my sarcasm fell flat. Sorry. The list reminded me of someone we know who is discussed in almost every thread. Nice list.

    Some more insight---
    Are Gaslighters Aware of What They Do?
    Are Gaslighters Aware of What They Do?
    Even if a person is practicing gaslighting behavior without being consciously aware of it, they may get a “payoff” when their victim becomes more dependent on them. And then the cycle continues. The gaslighter also gets a “boost” when there are no checks and balances in place—no one holding them accountable for their behavior. For example, a cult leader may exile or kill anyone who tells others that the leader is not treating followers fairly. Subsequently, further followers may not speak out for fear of their lives. Keep in mind that dependency is one of the goals of gaslighters.

    tps://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2020/08/24/trump-convention-ultimate-gaslighting-exercise/?utm_campaign=wp_for_you&utm_medium=email&utm_source=newsletter&wpisrc=nl_personalizedforyou
    Be prepared for the convention from Earth 2. In this parallel universe from which Republicans will beam out their messaging, President Trump created the greatest economy ever. Trump did better than anyone on the planet in handling covid-19. And he has been the best president ever for Blacks — well, other than maybe Abraham Lincoln. Back on Earth 1, it is an entirely different story.

    Even before the novel coronavirus hit, Trump’s economic performance was underwhelming. Steven Rattner, former car czar in the Obama administration, reminds us in a New York Times op-ed that in the pre-pandemic period, the economy was “weaker than during the last three years of Barack Obama’s presidency. Almost exactly 1.5 million fewer jobs were created on Mr. Trump’s watch than during Mr. Obama’s final three years.” Even with a misguided tax cut that blew up the debt, Rattner writes, “annualized growth under Mr. Trump ranked seventh among his 11 predecessors. And growth actually slowed during each of Mr. Trump’s three years.”

    Trump’s coronavirus performance has left us with more than 170,000 dead. While much of the West is now reopened and conducting in-school education, we are limping around, watching the virus surge in the Midwest and the South. We have more coronavirus deaths by far than any country. We have 4 percent of the world’s population and more than 20 percent of the world’s covid-19 deaths.

    You could say most politicians are gaslighters. They didn't get to that position being 100% altruistic (unfortunately).
