I read this and then read your past posts. You are right on target with everything you say. I am so disappointed and outraged with liberals who are not worried about Trump. They don’t like him but they are generally unconcerned, believing that democracy will “do its thing” and he will be held in check or kicked out. I know very few people who are taking him seriously, even those who detest him think he is just a clown to be laughed at for four years. Thank you for your insightful and truthful essays. The truth must be told if we are to have any hope at all.

On a personal note, I have an ex-son-in-law who is an extreme narcissist and a great admirer of Trump. I have, on a small scale, been dealing for years with the same sort of behavior that Trump exhibits. It is exhausting, frustrating, confusing, and infuriating — a never-ending cycle of lies, misrepresentations, tricks, deceit, and confusion. This is exactly what I am seeing with Trump.

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
