America, This Is Your President

Donald Trump, as many have pointed out, is a megalomaniac and a narcissist. To deny this evaluation at this point is merely to reject the labels of modern psychology, which is fine with me.

Fans of Donald Trump like to defend all his stupid, incoherent, or unscrupulous moves by saying, “I’ll assume he knows what he’s doing; after all, he’s a negotiating genius.” Their faith is that whatever Trump appears to be doing on the surface, he is in fact playing some kind of deal-making hardball that will eventually break down and win over any opponent.
