Whenever I’ve been secretly critical of Trump,

or other politicians, or other believers, or other humans, I’ve always been confident-I-knew-what-was-best.  Impossible to judge, unless I’m confident-I-know-what’s-best.  ShepherdDave.  Analyzer, critic of all.  Leaning on my own understanding, wise in my own eyes.  Clear-sighted about the weaknesses/sins of Trump, but blind to ways I’m just like Trump, down deep on a root level.  Humility challenged.  Somebody wannabe.  Like Janet says, “You spot it, you got it.”
