A Bad Bargain

February 23, 2018


Faust, in the legend, traded his soul to the devil in exchange for knowledge.

To “strike a Faustian bargain” is to be willing to sacrifice anything to satisfy a limitless desire for knowledge or power.

The American Heritage® New Dictionary of Cultural Literacy, Third Edition.


A Trumpian Bargain


Trump who had no soul to trade, opted instead to barter away an adult vocabulary for an adolescent desire for attention and to be a petulant president.


Any takers?
