Cult-ural Politics

I just came across these little-noticed remarks by a judge following a lawsuit involving Donald Trump:

“The evidence portrays a man who has been virtually a pathological liar when it comes to his history, background and achievements. The writings and documents in evidence additionally reflect his egotism, greed, avarice, lust for power, and vindictiveness and aggressiveness against persons perceived by him to be disloyal or hostile. At the same time it appears that he is charismatic and highly capable of motivating, organizing, controlling, manipulating, and inspiring his adherents. He was referred to during the trial as a ‘genius’, a ‘revered person,’ a man who was ‘viewed by his followers with awe.’”

Sorry! My mistake. That was about L. Ron Hubbard.
