Condemning the media for refusing to shower him with the adoring praise he insists he's due, he concluded by saying arrogantly, "I’m president and they’re not" (details here).

Trump followed this by another truly bizarre incident: he tweeted a doctored video showing him savagely beating a man with a CNN logo on his head. This behavior was widely criticized by both Republicans and Democrats in Congress.
These incidents are deeply troubling for a variety of reasons. They demonstrate how, like a dictator, Trump is utterly contemptuous of a free press. They also seriously demean the office of the President. And perhaps the most worrisome, they suggest a man who may be seriously mentally ill and close to the point of breaking.
Richard Nixon was a disaster for many reasons. Trump, however, is making Nixon look mild in comparison.
