@schlomo  Mark Twain is one of my heros so you dragged me in just because you mentioned him.  Twain was right about Mary Baker Eddy, of course,  and you are equally right about 'the donald'.  They do have similar characteristics.  It's hard to look away.

SOUND FAMILIAR IN RELATION TO THE PRESIDENT?

Message 2 of 2

 

"The Daily Beast" last week contained an article about Mark Twain's love/hate relationship with Mary Baker Eddy, the founder of the Christian Science movement. His assessment of her could well be an anti-Trump rallying call:

 

While considering her “the most interesting woman that ever lived,” he also found her "[g]rasping, sordid, penurious, famishing for everything she sees—money, power, glory—vain, untruthful, jealous, despotic, arrogant, insolent, pitiless where thinkers and hypnotists are concerned, illiterate, shallow, incapable of reasoning outside of commercial lines, immeasurably selfish.”
