Alan: Unwittingly, Lewis' description of Trump also describes his supporters to at "T." Like Donald, their nearest approximation of a moral compass is "immediate, narrow self-interest."

"The Big Short" Author Michael Lewis Says 
This Is Where You Should Put Your Money

Excerpt: “Predicting what Donald Trump will do is a bit like predicting what the stock market will do. There’s a huge random component to his behavior,” Lewis said. “I think he’s making it up as he goes along and doesn’t have any particular compass. The closest thing to a compass is: What’s his immediate narrow self-interest. Beyond that, it’s hard to read him.”

Sandy Hook denier arrested after death threats made to parent of victim

Federal authorities say a Florida woman has been charged with making death threats against the parents of a child who died in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings.
The U.S. Department of Justice announced the charges Wednesday. Its statement said 57-year-old Lucy Richards of Tampa made the threats because she thought the December 2012 shootings in Newton, Connecticut, were a hoax.
The child's parents now live in South Florida. The department didn't release their identities or exact location and didn't return calls seeking more details.
Richards was arrested and charged with four counts of transmitting threats. Each carries a maximum term of five years in prison.
She awaits an initial court appearance Dec. 19. It's not immediately known if she has an attorney.
The Sandy Hook shootings left 20 children and six adults dead.

Alan: The witch-hunting small-mindedness of American conservatives makes it very hard to see these self-shrunken people in a different light than Yeshua saw the Pharisees.
