Which makes a mockery of the idea that he can be filed with those leaders that get called 'strongmen' - Putin, Duterte, Bolsanaro etc.he's also the most easily manipulated president we've ever had, rogue foreign leaders know all they have to do is flatter him and he'll fall for anything.
I tend to think an electoral system that deemphasizes the individual in favor of policy - like the UK compared to the US - is better
tamps down on the potential for demagoguery, even if it doesn't quite get rid of it
I don't know a huge amount about him before he decided to run for the Republic nomination and then the presidency, but I've seen footage of him from maybe 20 years ago and he was far more articulate then, even fairly intelligent-sounding. So I think it's possible he's actually regressed somewhat.every bad person was a baby once right. the weird thing with trump tho is that you can still very much recognize a child in him.
There's got to be an analysis somewhere of what social media addiction does to people (individuals/society) in terms of the Sapir-Worf hypothesis, I'd have thought.Jaron Lanier thinks he's addicted to Twitter and it's scrambled his brain. He now thinks and speaks in tweets.
