By Jim Berlin Since lying is part of her DNA – the very fabric of her being – it must also affect her personal life. For example, if she feels an urgent need to urinate but a restroom trip is inconvenient, she must tell herself: “I have no need to pee.” If she then wets herself she is required to perpetuate the lie: “No, I did not pee my pants. Either I am unknowingly pregnant and my water just broke, or, because of the high humidity a part of me that rarely sweats is sweating profusely.” As an equal opportunity critic, however, I must point out that Donald Trump’s DNA is also gravely flawed. He is – let me be gentle – a narcissistic fool. Narcissistic is self-explanatory. When Donald gazes into a mirror he sees a handsome Greek deity smiling back at him and giving a thumbs-up. But by fool, I do not mean he is stupid. His IQ is no better or worse than average. Donald is a fool because he has no mastery over the most precious of all human gifts – his mind. Whatever bizarre concept pops into his head, he is immediately compelled to verbalize it. He gives no thought to its layered meanings or consequences. What enters his head must exit his mouth. So…in this election we have two choices: A liar or a fool. I still lean toward the fool, in the desperate hope that he might be surrounded by wise people who could keep him in check. Surrounding a liar with truthful people is a less likely scenario. Liars are more comfortable with fellow liars at their elbows. Liar or fool. What a frightening quandary for the American voter.
