A Tragicomedy Called Trump
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.
