Trump is making himself expendable

It was the question of the week, and Frida Ghitis posed it best:

"How is it possible that after the country was torn apart by the Russian interference in the 2016 election and its aftermath, and after (President Donald) Trump himself endured almost two years under the searing spotlight of an investigation into that very thing, how is it possible that he could reach out to another country and -- according to a whistleblower complaint -- attempt another round of election interference? How is that possible?"

Her answer: "Trump has apparently come to believe that he is so brilliant, so talented, so invincible, that he could get away with defying every norm, every practice, every institution of the democracy he is charged with leading." In a word from ancient Greece: hubris.

Michael D'Antonio described it another way: "Trump's decision to push Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate a political opponent one day after the country heard special counsel Robert Mueller testify before Congress suggests a man with a political death wish."

1. He's a narcissist who thinks anything and everything he does

is perfectly fine.

Anyone who continues to think he ought to behave like a normal human being is delusional about Trump.
