Why I’m Starting to Doubt Trump Even Wants to Be President

esquire.comThis week’s episode of Seven Days In Mayhem features me changing my mind.

Ever since the rise of He, Trump, I have resolutely resisted the arguments of people who told me that he didn’t really want the job of being president, that he was only in it to build his brand, that he was simply ego-surfing on the waves of affection produced by simpletons. I thought he actually believed he could do the job of being president better than all those other pathetic, low-energy losers who lined up against him. I thought that, the more he won, the more he validated himself in the echoing canyons of his mind. Now, though, I’m not sure. Maybe the whole thing was pure grift from the start.
