POTUS and the Fantasy

Nobody asked but …

It came to me with sickening suddenness that the misadventures of POTUS, all of them but now with this POTUS particularly, resemble the fantasy quest of a hormone-driven teenaged boy. It seems a world in which everything is viewed as a centerfold, and an opportunity to gain a prodigious rush.

It is even worse when POTUS has an exhibitionist bent as well. The women who approach success in this environment seem to be the ones who act most like belligerent males, who have somehow received a mystery dose of testosterone. Therefore, the prospect is dim. Although POTUSes may be too old, too fat, too drugged up, they can still have the masturbatory world view of teenaged rocket men.
