But the deepest form of Trumpism will remain connected to the person rigorously incapable of believing anything deeply.

I agree that removing people like Bannon won’t change much because the problem is Trump himself. However, the problem is not just that Trump doesn’t believe anything deeply. The far graver concern is that so much of what Trump does believe is not connected to reality. In fact, the less connected to reality something is the more likely Trump is to believe it deeply.

He is a conspiracy theorizing kook. A nut job. When you combine his defiance of reality with his narcissistic egomania, our President is just flat out batfecalmaterial crazy. He’s an off the charts nutter.

He belongs in a padded oval room.
