About the Author


As a psychologist of more than 30 years, Dr. Jerry Finkelstein has been plumbing the depths of the human psyche trying to figure out why the hell people do some of the crazy things they do.  Voting for Donald Trump is one of those things! A narcissist for the ages, he is the consummate wolf in sheep’s clothing, emperor without clothes.  Jerry has become obsessed with the workings of the mind of Donald Trump. He ascribes to the resistance philosophy of the Groucho Marx song: “Whatever it is I’m against it!”  And given the direction this president threatens to take the country, he has decided to live up to those words by writing this blog.

Jerry Finkelstein performed his one- person show  “Peristalsis (Look it Up!) at the 2014 NYC Fringe Festival. He is the author of the YA novel “Dog days of Summer”, a number of short plays and the “The Center”, a TV pilot about a College Counseling Center, which to his chagrin, has not been picked up by any producers (Yet!) He has recorded four C.D’s with the “Twisted Whispies”, a Jazz-Cabaret duo. His whereabouts will not be disclosed as he worries that D.T. will not appreciate this blog and he doesn’t want to be swooped up in the middle of the night and imprisoned in Trump Tower, a la Rapunzel. This would really suck because he doesn’t have any hair, which means he would live in captivity for a long time. He welcomes the opportunity to meet D.T. at Katz’s Deli in New York City and buy him a pastrami sandwich and Dr. Brown’s Black Cherry soda. Chances are unlikely this will occur so communicating via Twitter would be fine.
