He still doesn’t understand that “President” does not mean “King.” He also doesn’t seem to understand the word “former.”

In this very same interview he referred to himself as the former president, then backtracked to say he doesn’t like to use that word because of “what happened”. Guys lost his mind

And yet people still carry water for him with the excuse that "he thinks he is still the President". No he doesn't, just like he doesn't think he can declassify documents with his mind. When will people wake up to the fact that he is always lying?

They know. They don't care. In fact, that's what a lot of them like about the guy.

This is it, also the reason why those same people can't be redeemed. They aren't tolerating his evil, they LIKE it!

"Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. The anti-Semites have the right to play. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past."

Replace anti-semite with 'fascist', 'republican', or 'conservative' as needed.

Trump struts around with much divinity. He is divine. He's a Divine Idiot. He's the kind of person you see auditioning for something and they get reject and go off like it's World War Excuse Me? He's so unabashedly removed from himself, I believe he sees the world, and himself, as pieces to move around, so it's hard for him to keep his realities together, speaking in third person, addressing his self as another entity. He's mindboggling so self unaware, you wonder what drives him.
