Dan Rather: "Donald Trump long lived in a world of his own creation where he felt he was immune..."

One has a sense Donald Trump long lived in a world of his own creation where he felt he was immune to any oversight, accountability, or responsibility for his actions. That bubble has been dramatically popped with the Democratic control of the House, and we're seeing the results.

1. This is true. For all of his life, no one could tell him anything...

he knew it all.

Bankruptcy, failure, disapproval... Nothing bothered him because he always rationalized victory. Any deal that he blew up, or just didn't like, he could walk away from.

Alexanders, Trump Air, Plaza Hotel, Atlantic City and all the rest were "successes" in his mind because he managed to survive them. He even bragged that being the first casino owner in AC to go bankrupt showed his brilliance and prescience that he led the trend.

For first time in his life, he can't just walk away from a problem, and he is confused.

3. It's not going to be over after he gets out of office, either

He's eventually going either to prison or Russia for the rest of his life. Unless his ticker finally gives out first, which I would give equal odds on with the other options, based on his diet and appearance, and the possibility that his buddy Vlad will decide to cut his losses at some point.

2. Yup.

SNL figured it out.

"Getting elected President was the worst thing that ever happened to your dad," Mueller (De Niro) tells Eric Trump (Alex Moffat).

5. Anyone using the same schemes need to be prosecuted fully.

As for Trump, not just him, but his whole family.

6. I don't care if Trump ever learns a thing from this

I do care that the rest of us do learn!

10. Your post wins.

This should be a national mantra. Will we finally learn-tragically NO.

7. That's the fault of GOP voters AND congress who refused to check Trump's decades of criminality.

8. A classic narcissist

They live in their own reality were they are the only one that matters, and they are "NEVER" wrong. They do not feel accountable to anyone for anything. They lie, cheat, and slander others to get their way, and yes they think they are immune to the rules and laws that others follow. If confronted they deny everything and blame others. They play people against each other, and enjoy the chaos they cause.
