As noted today by Charles Krauthammer in a Washington Post opinion piece entitled "Donald Trump and the fitness threshold":
"This is beyond narcissism. I used to think Trump was an 11-year-old, an undeveloped schoolyard bully. I was off by about 10 years. His needs are more primitive, an infantile hunger for approval and praise, a craving that can never be satisfied. He lives in a cocoon of solipsism where the world outside himself has value — indeed exists — only insofar as it sustains and inflates him."
Agreed, which brings me to my query: If three months from today, Trump senses that he is going to be slaughtered in November, might he quit the race, claiming that the election is rigged? Can you imagine what this loss would do to his "cocoon of solipsism"?
And if Trump quits, my understanding is that the RNC will be forced to reconvene their national convention to nominate a new candidate.
Wishful thinking? Perhaps not. Donald is capable of anything, and the RNC - as well as Hillary and friends - had best be ready.
