Whenever I hear stories about people lavishing praise on Donald Trump, like at the recent “Dear Leader” cabinet meeting, I try to put the most positive spin on it that I can.
So, I imagine that they’re treating him like a dangerous monster with incredible power, who must be complimented with effusive praise and lies to keep him from doing horrible damage. I think of them as people speaking to Anthony in the Twilight Zone episode: It’s a Good Life.
Perhaps the truth is much worse than that…but I’m an optimist.
We are living in very strange times.
