THERE ARE TEARS AT THE TOP BUT THE TEARS OF A CLOWN IS WHEN THERE'S NO ONE AROUND


President Barack Obama wept openly while defending his executive actions on gun control and remembering the victims of 2012's Newtown, Connecticut, shooting. The White House has proved to be an emotional place for past leaders; President George W. Bush summed it up when he told journalist Robert Draper: "I do a lot of crying in this job. I'll bet I've shed more tears than you can count, as president."

Crying is the shedding of tears (or welling of tears in the eyes) in response to an emotional state, pain or a physical irritation of the eye. ... A neuronal connection between the lacrimal gland (tear duct) and the areas of the human brain involved with emotion has been established.

There are at least 8 presidents that were documented crying, the last president was Obama. There were many at the top who cried in other positions. A narcissist person in any position cannot shed tears over the most emotional event. Narcissists, therefore, can understand that they may be causing someone pain, but they have less motivation to care because they are not feeling anything negative themselves. If they cry it will be in private when no one is around.

While it looks like narcissists have a high opinion of themselves, they may really be self-loathing and have a need to take others down to feel better. President Trump is too narcissistic to cry over a family member or anyone else if the cause is death. To show emotions over society issues that is seen as considerable pain to others, President Trump cannot gather emotions like other presidents even if it involves starving or sick children. He cannot sympathize or empathize with pain because he has never lost anyone by war, social issues involving sickness, starvation, and crime. And if he cry it would be because someone else did not suffer enough.
