Trump the Narcissistic Authoritarian Statist Declares He Has 'Total' Authority - 2020-04-14
If you watched President Donald Trump's daily press briefing Monday, you know that even by his abysmal standards this was the loudest siren yet, a warning that the man occupying the Oval Office is more suited to a very long, involuntary stay in an inpatient mental-health facility than the presidency of the United States.
It wasn't presidential leadership. It wasn't executive power made manifest. It wasn't a grown-ass adult facing a serious crisis. It was an angry, needy man not looking outward to the needs of a nation in crisis but inward, and downward.
Anyone—and I mean anyone —who tells you Monday's presser was anything other than a complete meltdown shitshow on the top of the dumpster fire at the peak of Burning-Tire Mountain is a liar.
