Regarding the Aug. 3 article “Trump plans ‘emergency’ to stay in office,” Trump has a love-hate relationship with his job. Tragicomically, he hates the most important elements because — exactly like his fawning flock of sycophantic sheep — Trump despises everything he doesn't understand.

He loves the perks. His eggshell ego is addicted to peripheral benefits like worshipful rally crowds, adulation from Trumpketeer pundits and flights aboard Air Force One. Also, Trump prizes the respect his title once commanded, which he’s burned to ashes at the altar of his clinical narcissism — with aplomb.

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
