Getting inside Trump’s Brain. April 25, 2017

Not much of a post, but here are two pieces I want to share about Trump’s psyche. Love him or hate him, it’s hard not to find plenty of food for thought here. The comparison with other presidents is particularly thought provoking. What presidential personality characteristics are likely to lead to what consequences for the nation?

This New Yorker piece by Jeffrey Toobin compares trump with Nixon. 

This Slate piece by Jamelle Bouie identifies Trump’s defining characteristic as insecurity.
