The Albany Times Union has finally published my op ed in today’s paper. The title is: Authoritarian, narcissist or both, Trump is dangerous
A couple of weeks ago, the editorial page editor, Jay Jochnowitz, told me they’d publish it, but I wasn’t sure when. I wrote it in late August after his nomination at the Republican National Convention, and I hadn’t read it in awhile, so I was surprised how good it is!
I compared my original to the printed version, and found it was identical except for three changes: deleting the time reference and the following:
Could he even believe he’ s God?
I suspect he has a soft spot for Hitler.
Jay thought these statements were a tad too inflammatory and suggested deleting them, and I agreed, although I still stand by what I originally wrote.
I’ve just finished reading Bob Woodward’s book, so I suspect I’ll be writing more about Trump in the near future. Please subscribe to this blog so you won’t miss anything.
