I think it is time to update my indictment of Donald Trump.
- He is a malignant narcissist whose narcissism prevents his seeing the world accurately. That’s the old count (which I formed long ago, when people were talking about adultery and misogyny and things that assumed he was just a really bad person), and I’m proud of my prescience. I still think it’s sufficient.
- He has totally disregarded his oath of office, showing no interest in what the law and constitution allow a President to do while claiming “magical authorities” to do as he damn well pleased. That’s my new count, also sufficient.
- He’s a ferret-brain. That’s a playground insult, but it feels good, and I have magical authority to hurl it.
