When Ego Becomes a Psychosis

According to people who witnessed Trump yesterday at a reception for Congressional leaders, he is hanging on to his self-puffing fantasy that 3-5 million illegal votes for Hillary Clinton cost him the popular vote last November.

It rankles him the way poor crowds on inauguration day rankle him. He can't accept rejection, which is going to make the next four years an escalating throb of pain.

If Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell want to stir the opposition into another peak of froth, perhaps they'll act on Trump's whining and pass a national voter ID law. Expect the worst.
