Anyway, if it's true, why?
- one answer would, of course, be the prospect of impeachment which is not something an insecure person would feel good about.
- another possible answer, although it comes too close to a conspiracy theory for my comfort, is the possibility that his recent trip to Johns Hopkins was an indicator of some sort of health problem. As self-absorbed as he is, he's got to be super conscious of his age and the end of life. That might chasten even him.
