Mark Evanier, writing on his personal blog, makes a really interesting observation about Trump.
So I’m thinking Trump’s trapped in a vicious circle of his own making. Whenever he feels his stature as President/God slipping away from him, he gets nastier and more insulting and more disconnected from reality…but the reason his numbers are slipping is because people are seeing him as nastier and more insulting and more disconnected from reality. The skill at which he’s most deficient is changing his act. In Trumpworld when you’re losing, you double-down on everything…which is the reason he no longer has those casinos. It’s the mistake every losing gambler makes.
I hadn’t thought of that exactly, but it makes sense.
