A Tragi­com­edy Called Trump

The Economic Times - - The Edit Page -

This refers to the Edit, ‘Help­ing For­eign Rulers, Just by Com­par­i­son’ (Aug 8). Don­ald Trump is only liv­ing by the kind of hy­per­bole he threw at his au­di­ence dur­ing the pres­i­den­tial elec­tion. They lapped it up for mys­te­ri­ous rea­sons. Trump may not be Trump if he be­haves by the rule book; with his sack­ing spree as com­i­cal as his ap­point­ments. So, the ques­tion is not whether he will ever act in a re­spon­si­ble way but whether he would ever act in a sober and sen­si­ble way. Hats off to the Amer­i­can democ­racy that has been ex­tremely pa­tient with their pres­i­dent and is giv­ing him enough time to trip over.
