“I wrote ‘The Art of the Deal’ with Trump. His self-sabotage is rooted in his past.”

I have, by the way, never understood the continuing popularity of Napoleon among not a few French, which borders on reverence. In my judgment, he was a monster, a self-absorbed mass killer, and a catastrophe for Europe.

 

Some readers of this blog may have noticed that I wasn’t a fan of Donald Trump.  (To be clear, I also didn’t vote for Hillary Clinton.)  I’m a serious, life-long political conservative; I resigned from the Republican Party on the night that Mr. Trump accepted the party’s nomination.

 

Much of my concern about Mr. Trump has always centered on his character and personality.  I’ve tried to be cautiously optimistic about his presidency.  I’ve liked many (though not all) of his appointments; I’m delighted with the presence of Justice Gorsuch on the Supreme Court.

 

However, my worries about the presidential temperament continue.

 

And this scathing article suggests something of why I worry:
