Trump Fools Himself

Donald Trump says everybody loves him and that he is a great uniter. So far he has aroused more enmity — especially abroad — than appreciation. Does he think winning an election would change his character? He’s fooling himself.

Donald Trump says he is such a great winner that America will grow tired of winning all the time. Yet he is winning only some of the time right now and has a very slim lead in number of delegates. And with each round of voting he does more poorly. He certainly has proven that he is not a total winner even within the Republican party.

Trump boasts of being tough, yet he is so extremely thin-skinned that he feels attacked by any sort of criticism and responds with childish insults, resorting to name-calling because he actually feels quite powerless and insecure.

He is proud of being smart yet he continues to say genuinely stupid things, like assuring the nation that his anatomy is big.

He brags about being a great businessman, yet he has made no more money than if he had simply invested the fortune he started with, buying ordinary stocks and letting the profits multiply. He was assured an interviewer that he had earned the two million dollars a company had paid him as a consultant, even though the company was quickly bankrupted.

Donald Trump says he will make America great again. So far, though, he is already costing America a very great deal of respect around the globe. His claims, for instance, that the generals will obey him and break the law against cruelty hardly sound great in anyone’s ears, even if he is forced to back-track the next day and say he will simply change the laws.He is making a mockery of America.

A man who fools himself is. . . . a real fool. Hmmm, what does that make the one who supports him?
