“Rage Against the Dying of the Light” – Talking Points Memo:

The reality is that Trump is a sick, obese, old man. He struggles to modulate his breathing as he looks steely-eyed into the distance. Trying to ape muscular imagery of power and resilience is an image both tragic and ridiculous. His physical reality is now coinciding with his political reality. His inability to run from either only confirms and accentuates an underlying helplessness which is gravely damaging for a man who lives by expressions of dominance.
