It keeps happening to us here at AP: there’s far too much material about the man who loses it all if there’s no twittering device anywhere near, no cameras near, no sycophants desperate to satisfy his every need.
Not only that, Melania has her own bedroom.
Today, Donald Trump said if he were a psychiatrist, he would say Joe Biden has big issues: https://www.politico.com/news/2020/09/04/biden-says-he-got-covid-test-409081.
How ironic, because years ago, our expert staff of forensic psychiatrists had already diagnosed Trump with classic narcissistic personality disorder (just ask Mary Trump), obsessive compulsive disorder, and paranoia. To say nothing about his hypergrandiosity, which is one aspect of classic narcissistic personality disorder according to the DSM-V (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatric Association).
And that’s just for starters.
We here at AP always watch Robert Costa’s Washington Week in Review on PBS. This evening, the focus was on presidential character (of which Trump has none, as we plainly saw in Kenosha) and of which Joe Biden has plenty.
When Biden saw that Trump said, about him, that he has “big [psychiatric] issues," Biden promptly said it’s hard so respond to something so idiotic.
Which immediately sent us to MacBeth, where King MacBeth, having just been told that his wife, whom he, though depraved (her too) really loved, said:
She should have died hereafter.
There would have been a time for such a word.
Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time.
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Our, out, brief candle.
Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more
It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
