The malignantly narcissistic Orange Thing in the White House is what it is. Despite its eternal infantilism, Orange Thing is an old dog that's not going to learn new tricks. At age 71, it brags that it hasn't changed since it was in the second grade. It's going to keep running with the same kind of insane clown madness that it thinks got it to the White House -- crazy stuff like calling for Barack Obama's birth certificate, offering to pay the legal bills of whites who punch Black protesters, claiming that America was being overrun by Mexican rapists, and wondering aloud why the United States has nuclear weapons if it can't use them. And so, every night, or close to it, the news will brim with the latest absurd Orange Thing outrage:

+ its claim to have been cheated of victory in the popular election by millions of illegal immigrant voters.

+ its charge that Obama wiretapped Trump Tower.

+ its "bleeding face" assault on MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski.

+ its Tweet showing it beating up "CNN" at a wrestling match.

+ its Tweet denouncing a retail firm that dropped its daughter's perfume brand.

+ its attempt to turn a Boy Scouts gathering into one of its permanent campaign rallies.

+ its reckless war of words with its soulmate Kim Jong-Un, replete with threats to "totally destroy" North Korea and promises of "fire and fury."

+ the horrifying cover it gave to murderous neo-Nazis ("some good people") in Charlottesville, Virginia.

+ its praise and bizarre advance pardon of the fascist country sheriff Joe Arpaio.

+ its reference to hurricane victims assembled in Houston as a "great crowd" ("thanks for coming out").

+ it's claim that the White House will make North Dakota's drought "disappear" ("it's all go away, you'll see").

+ its vicious assault on Black NFL players it called "sons of bitches" for protesting murderous and racist police violence.

+ its attack on San Juan's mayor after it golfed through Hurricane Maria's devastating landfall in Puerto Rico.
