'As our ship of state founders in tempest-tossed seas, our captain likens himself to one of the most reviled villains in maritime history. When governors rejected his assertion that his “authority is total,” Trump called them insurrectionists. “Tell the Dem. Governors that ‘Mutiny On The Bounty’ was one of my all time favorite movies, A good old fashioned mutiny is an exciting & invigorating thing to watch, especially when the mutineers need so much from the Captain. Too easy!” Is it possible Trump is more self-aware than we thought? Like Bligh, he is abusive, claims absolute authority but takes no responsibility although he turns the tiller randomly: touts a virus treatment that shows alarming side effects; announces virus-testing schemes that don’t exist; blames everybody except himself '“What the hell is happening to @FoxNews?” What’s happening, captain, is you’ve hit the rocks.'
