The Trumpeter(POTUS),has engaged James Comey,the fired former FBI Director in Mano a Mano combat.Considering the difference in status and power he has nothing to gain and a lot to lose.Comey's style (simultaneously strength and weakness)is a grinding obsessive analyzing and rehashing of facts with a reluctance to cut and slash.He could have,as infuriatingly as the original,commanded Lincoln's army of the Potomac.(fired for dilatory over caution).However this attribute serves well " the duty to correct",which " nauseatingly" l helped destroy Hillary.He has turned over the classified portfolio to another Bulldog Drummond type and his notes to a Columbia Law Professor.
Trump burdened by his inability to learn from experience,his inability to display or evoke empathy,and his flashpoint engaging of anyone or anything that does not bend the knee is at constant risk.I dread his attempt to convey empathic understanding of the deaths of three servicemen in Afghanistan.(The death toll is climbing!) His undermining of Tillerson in the Qatar insult is also noteworthy.Trump's era may signal opportunity to friend( frenemies ) and foe alike to exploit and embarass the U.S.A.
