The Tantrum Continues
As we are subjected to the ludicrous but yet disgusting spectacle of President Trump refusing to admit that he lost the election last week, it is important to remember that Trump is not lying to us; he is lying to himself. He has lived most of his life in a world of delusion, and he refused to give this up when he became President. This latest wolrd wide humiliation of our country at his hands is totally the result of the refusal of our leaders and the press for four years, to face Trump's manifest mental instability and clear unsuitability to be President. It is a reminder of our failure as a country to deal with the reality of a mentally ill person who managed to seize control of our government.
Thank heaven that the United States in 2020 is not the Weimar Republic in 1933. We are going to survive this plunge into fascism. But this time around, we had better learn our lesson about averting our eyes from madness in our leaders, or it will surely happen again.
