Make America Great Again? Donald Trump is an a**hole is a fact widely agreed upon even by his supporters, who actually like that about him. But his startling political rise makes the question of just what sort of a**ole he is, and how his a$*holedom may help to explain his success, one not just of philosophical interest but of almost existential urgency.
Enter the philosopher Aaron James, author of the foundational text in the burgeoning field of A**hole Studies: the bestselling "A**holes: A Theory." In this brisk and trenchant inquiry into the phenomenon that is Donald Trump, James places the man firmly in the typology of the a**hole (takes every advantage, entrenched sense of entitlement, immune to criticism); considers whether, in the Hobbesian world we seem to inhabit, he might not somehow be a force for good i.e., the Stronger A**hole; and offers a suggestion for how the bonds of our social contract, spectacularly broken by Trump s (and Ted Cruz s) disdain for democratic civility, might in time be repaired.
You will never think about Donald Trump and his "Art of the Deal" the same way after reading this book. And, like it or not, think about him we must.
