'Trumpism in a way is about emotion over information. It is about heat over light. It is about hostility over comity. And it is divorced from the rigors of truth and honesty. It exists as a near ecclesiastical devotion in a space where passionate faith surmounts accuracy and science. In this space, everything must exist at the extremes, or not at all. Everything is love or hate, big or little, best or worst. And, everything is very, very, very. Exploit people’s covetousness, ambition, lust, greed, fear, racial tribalism and gullibility . And one of his most fundamental exploitive synergies is lying.He is a pathological, irredeemable liar. Somehow, we have adjusted ourselves to this reality, not by accepting it as a new normalcy, but by diagnosing it as an enduring feature.'
