‘I alone …’

‘I alone …’

“I alone can fix it.”

Forty-four previous presidents had variously called for some form of civil unity and/or the guiding hand of providence in confronting the challenges facing our nation. Not president number 45. Trump’s fatuous “I alone” promise made at last year’s Republican National Convention was a true indicator of the boiling and heedless narcissism that inevitably would hobble (and still potentially destroy) his term in office.

Trump’s morally bankrupt refusal to differentiate between the neo-nazis and white supremacists who marched in Charlottesville, Va., and the protesters who confronted them has essentially isolated him, with the exodus of CEOs from his various corporate advisory councils and boards being recent examples. In the face of universal and bipartisan condemnation, he is becoming increasingly “alone.”
