He has sacked his Defence Secretary, his head of cyber security, and he has asked for military options to strike Iran while precipitously drawing down troop numbers in Iraq and Afghanistan.
News that he is seriously asking for military options against Iran before he’s forced from office are the most scared I’ve been since Trump’s regime of revenge fantasies as public policy started 4 years ago.
Even for Trump, this is insanely dangerous.
There are now cliques within the White House who are trying to goad Trump into an assortment of wildly precarious foreign and domestic policy positions all of which have zero political consequences for a President who has been voted out.
This is now Trump at his most desperate and dangerous.
Is he simply a toxic narcissist who was always intellectually out of his depth and is now bitter and resentful or is he actually a dangerous sociopath who will allow that bitterness and resentment to become malicious and spiteful?
Will he throw a tantrum and sulkingly slip away or will he plunge the planet into some type of catastrophe as a final fuck you?
Is he a boorish coward or a Supervillain?
We will find out before January 20th.
