A display of illness

Move over Vladimir Putin, Xi Jinping and Kim Jong Un. President Trump wants to show you up.
Our ego-driven president wants to have a military parade showing off American might — tanks, planes, rockets, weapons and soldiers in step.
It appears that he thrives on drama and the types of big military displays common in nations such as Russia, China and North Korea. And if media reports are correct, the Pentagon is going along with his foolishness.
What he believes will be a national display of unity and patriotism likely will be another public exhibition of his arrogance, impulsiveness and diminished judgment. It also will spotlight just how toxic his narcissism is to a delicately balanced world.
Psychologists have provided numerous warnings about President Trump’s delusions and multiple personality disorders that make him unfit to serve as the nation’s commander in chief.
We hope a major public display with what he considers to be his toys bodes nothing worse than demonstrations by peace-loving people against his lunatic actions.
