Those trivial fights are so far behind us

Richard Wolffe at the Guardian isn’t fooled.

The sheer effort required to start a speech by condemning racist murders and antisemitic attacks was historic. After all, earlier in the day, the same president had suggested all those bomb threats to Jewish community centers were the work of his political opponents “to make others look bad”.

And in between the two he suddenly became a completely different person. Yeah, that’s it.

“The time for small thinking is over,” said this president of exceedingly large thinking. “The time for trivial fights is behind us.”

Those trivial fights are so far behind us that it’s been a full two days since he tweeted that the Russian stories were just a Democratic conspiracy to “mask the big election defeat and the illegal leaks!”

Well that was before he became a completely different person.

“We just need the courage to share the dreams that fill our hearts,” Trump concluded. “The bravery to express the hopes that stir our souls.”

Sometimes those hopes and dreams just happen to include the demise of the New York Times, CNN and all the enemies of the people known as the free press.

There is indeed a torch in Trump’s exceptionally large hands. And he’s not afraid to use it.

His hands tripled in size yesterday between that conversation with Fox and the So Presidential speechy thing. His hands are now bigger than his head.
