Krugman opines why the Dude whines.

The economic guru has concluded the Dude in the White House is mentally ill. I think he’s got that, like his economics, wrong. It’s a matter of time. Illness is generally temporary and subject to being, if not totally cured, ameliorated over time.

How will the Dude cope? It is entirely possible that he won’t even notice. He’s so used to living in a gilded cage.
