10. His "genius" is, to use Bannon's formulation

"Flooding the Zone with Shit". But it is the style of violent, dictatorial MALE rulers through all millenia. Democracy is the exception in Human History; Autocracy is the norm.

Trump has a feral talent for Gaslighting - and it works whether you buy it or not. Putin and the GRU had to work for decades to develop the techniques that come to Trump naturally, shamelessly, joyfully.

He lies on all sides of an issue; any statements he makes are just noise, and the Constitution is so weak, the courts so slow to react, there is no way to stop his bullying and gleeful dismantling of the bureaucracy.

His "offbeat style" has the press baffled - SNL had a skit a month back where a talking dog said "Trump's playing a game the Democrats don't even understand".
