H.L. Mencken Was Right About Presidency

Editor, News-Register:

I ran across an article written by H.L. Mencken, a journalist for the Baltimore Evening Sun. on July 26, 1920:

“As democracy is perfected, the office of President represents more and more closely, the inner soul of their people. On some great and glorious day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last and the White House will be occupied by a downright fool and complete narcissistic moron.”

So it was written and so it has come to pass.
