|In a presidency marked by incoherent pronouncements and bizarre visions of grandeur, Donald Trump seemed to reach new, troubling heights last week. He referred to himself as 'the chosen one.' He quoted a rabid conspiracy theorist radio host who declared that Israeli Jews love Trump as if he were the 'King of Israel' and 'the second coming of God,' while Trump himself accused American Jews of 'great disloyalty' if they voted for Democrats. He attacked the prime minister of Denmark ('nasty') because she will not sell him Greenland and she mocked the very idea as 'absurd.' He suggested he might serve more than two terms in office. He slurred his words while reading a speech off a teleprompter. He accused journalists of trying to ruin the U.S. economy. He claimed Google had 'manipulated' millions of votes in Hillary Clinton's favor during the 2016 election. He suggested giving himself a Medal of Honor. He said doctors in El Paso, Texas, left their operating rooms mid-surgery in order to greet him during his visit there following a local gun massacre. And he referred to the NRA as if it were a co-equal branch of the federal government.
