Trump’s Home Runs

The more we learn of Trump’s recent travels, the more bothered I become. He cozies up to the wrong people (primarily to get a $110 billion sale of arms with no assurance that those arms will not be used against our friends) and offends our friends. He was rude, ignorant, self-righteous, and incredibly foolish in Europe. And the offense was certainly noted.

Yet, having lectured the EU for not living up to agreements that they have never made (what an ignorant beast!), he seems really to have thought he did well.

What bothers me most is not that he is a bald-faced liar, which we’ve seen many times, but the thought that he may actually believe some of his own lies. There is very little evidence to suggest that Trump is able to perceive a distinction between truth and falsehood. He blasts the media for fake news, apparently not aware that he himself is by far the most egregious purveyor of falsehoods. He blasts them for relying on unnamed sources, as if he himself were not guilty of the same thing many times over.

That he is a liar is obvious enough. That he is truly disconnected from reality itself is even more worrisome.

And he has the nuclear codes. . .
