In his Making Sense podcast Sam Harris talks about why Donald Trump is unfit for public office. For reference, these clips come from Making Sense episodes #38 and #45. They were recorded before the 2016 presidential election but the past 4 years have only shown how right Harris was in his judgment of Trump. I haven’t seen anyone else speak with the same clarity and completeness about Trump as Harris, so that’s why I picked these clips.
I had a very similar if not the same opinion of Trump 4 years ago. I immediately recognized him as a narcissistic unintelligent con man unfit for public office. If I had expressed my opinion at the time in writing it probably would have sounded much like these clips from the Making Sense podcast. Although much has happened since 2016, I still find these clips worth sharing.
