15. Deflect and smear

People have allowed him to set the narrative. To do that he has two go to strategies: he deflects and he smears. In fact he is "King Smear" a Shakespearean tragic character with only those two tools at his disposal (plus a willingness to do what ever it takes to get what he wants). As he schemes his way forward others either jump on his coat tails or play him like a fiddle. If only Shakespeare were here to give us some clever language that would eloquently, but succinctly expose the little man we know him to be.
