>> Trump, whether it's wishful thinking, longing or projection, is reckoning with the durability of his lifelong belief in his own immunity from consequence. It's how he's always seen himself, and it's how he's wanted to be seen by the world. "He thinks he's immune to everything," the biographer Tim O'Brien told me. "He always did," said Barbara Res, a former Trump Organization vice president who worked for Trump in the 1970s, '80s and '90s and has a new book out called Tower of Lies.

The presidency has afforded Trump a feeling of inviolability, and he has sought to expand the privileges of the office beyond their already vast scope, claiming for himself a kind of immunity so legally unsubstantiated even his own Supreme Court nominees have had to rein him in. But Trump's view of himself as untouchable is in some ways just an extension and escalation of a mindset he learned from the two most important mentors in his life - Fred Trump, his dour, domineering father, and Roy Cohn, the notorious attorney and amoral political fixer. But the issue that now looms is whether or not he can remain as immune as he's been for the past nearly four years. Because if the office of the presidency has granted him an unusual level of immunity, it has made him the ultimate target, too.<<

Well done.
Sounds like the beginning of a good modern tragedy novel.
