U.S. President, Donald J. Trump, gives himself control of the weather by signing an executive order.
According to Andy Borowitz, Pressident Donald J. Trump, has signed an executive order giving him control of the weather and if he declares that huricanne Dorian is going to hit Alabama, then reality be damned, the huricanne will hit Alabama and he, Donald J. Trump will declare a national disaster emergency and give funds to Alabama for rebuilding and reconstruction.
Narcissistic arrogance and grandisosity is not only a characteristic of Donald J. Trump. We all have this tendency and characteristic to a lesser or larger extent depending on our level of egotism and insecurity. The Course In Miracles asks "Would you rather be right or be happy?" and most of us would rather be right.
The kind of narcissistic arrogance born out of the innocence and naivte in children can be "cute" and "endearing," but when observed in a 73 years old adult male it is kind of frightening and then laughable.
Unitarian Universalists are not know for their humility or their nonjudgmental attitudes, but they are known for their sense of humor and their ability to laugh at themselves in self deprecating ways. So there is hope for us all yet.
