Fabulous article.

I have grown more than a little tired of reading all the pop psychology behind Mr. Trump’s behavior. He’s an extreme narcissist. He’s emotionally damaged. He’s insecure. He’s ADHD. On and on it goes, one “diagnosis” sillier than the next.

Sleep deprivation. That’s the first sane suggestion I’ve heard. All the others, were they to be true, would indeed explain his behavior……but syndromes of that magnitude would have prevented any business success on his part long ago. It always seemed to me that there had to be another explanation.

And, as William of Ockham said long ago, the simplest is probably the correct one.

The poor guy needs to learn to power nap.

One other thought. TELL PEGGY NOONAN. The President reads Peggy Noonan, and respects her. If she puts it in an article, he’ll hear her.
