Born Is the King of Israel

Let us be clear about this: Donald Trump’s paretic or other decline has not yet reached the point where he is claiming to be the King of Israel. He is merely retweeting the words of a supporter, Wayne Allyn Root, who said that the people of Israel think of him that way.

I was aware of Mr. Root longer than most of you because for years he was advertising his services as a betting advisor in the football magazines. (I don’t know if he’s still doing it.) He has apparently found greener pastures as a conspiracy theorist. It’s the usual theories: Obama is a foreigner; the alleged victims of shootings are actually actors; that sort of thing. But if you want to know about his mental state, I offer you a single quote: “No man can ever live with a liberal woman with cats. She’ll cut your pee-pee off, I promise you. ”
