The Thing in the Chair

"When we analyze a president’s utterances we tend to assume that there is some substantive process behind the words, that it’s part of some strategic intent."

 

"But Trump’s statements don’t necessarily come from anywhere, lead anywhere or have a permanent reality beyond his wish to be liked at any given instant."

 

"We’ve got this perverse situation in which the vast analytic powers of the entire world are being spent trying to understand a guy whose thoughts are often just six fireflies beeping randomly in a jar."
