Gaslighting Equals Victim Blaming
The Apprentice President who BULLIED his way onto the Republican Ticket in 2016 continues his UNETHICAL backwards bullying of anyone who opposes him & dares to speak the truth.
The term "Gaslighting," which I find to be inflammatory, incendiary & patently offensive on its' face stems from the 1944 movie, Gaslight in which a WIFE is severely, methodically manipulated by her husband who sought to drive her crazy by dimming the lights in the attic, then claim it was just her imagination - though HE HIMSELF was actually doing it.
Since then, the phenomenon of "gaslighting" has actually made it into the realm of mental health professionals to describe abusive relationships.
