More About Trump and Me by Mark Singer; David Remnick
 
 
 
Overview
Ever since Donald Trump entered the presidential race in a press conference attended by paid actors, in which he slandered Mexican immigrants he has dominated headlines, becoming the unrestrained id at the center of one of the most bizarre and alarming elections in American history.
It was not always so. In 1996, longtime New Yorker writer Mark Singer was conscripted by his editor to profile Donald Trump. At that time Trump was a mere Manhattan-centric megalomaniac, a failing casino operator mired in his second divorce and (he claimed) recovering from the bankruptcy proceedings that prompted him to inventory the contents of his Trump Tower home. Conversing with Trump in his offices, apartments, cars, and private plane, Singer found himself fascinated with this man who had aspired to and achieved the ultimate luxury, an existence unmolested by the rumbling of a soul.
In Trump and Me, Singer revisits the profile and recounts how its publication lodged inside its subject s head as an enduring irritant and how Singer ( A TOTAL LOSER according to Trump)cheerfully continued to bait him. He reflects on Trump s evolution from swaggering buffoon to potential threat to America s standing as a rational guardian of the world order. Heedlessly combative, equally adept at spewing insults and manipulating crowds at his campaign rallies, the self-proclaimed billionaire has emerged as an unlikely tribune of populist rage. All politics is artifice, and Singer marvels at how Trump has transfixed an electorate with his ultimate feat of performance art a mass political movement only loosely tethered to reality."
