Seventy-nine percent of Republicans think DDT really won the election. A year ago, Leonard Pitts compared DDT to the monarch in Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Emperor’s New Clothes.” Pitts has a brilliant sequel. As the story goes, swindlers persuade an emperor he’s clothed in beautiful garments “visible only to those who are not “unusually stupid.”
After a child points out the monarch’s nakedness, the crowd is willing to admit what their eyes see. Pitts writes: “It’s Trump who stands naked before us, revealed for anyone who inexplicably still harbored doubt, as the liar and loser he always was.
He rages against math, excoriates voting, raves about imaginary schemes to steal a victory he never won. His psychopathy is nude, his disconnect from reality is disrobed, his toxic narcissism stands bare-cheeked before us all…
“Even after the child cried out, he still couldn’t admit his nakedness. ‘So he walked more proudly than ever, as his noblemen held high the train that wasn’t there at all.’” As far as DDT’s litigation does, “He hasn’t got anything on.”
Time will show how long the noblemen will claim to see DDT’s magical clothes.DDT’s Bluster, Nakedness | Nel’s New Day
