It dawned on me today, while watching a movie about an alcoholic, that perhaps Donald Trump should start drinking. If he did, perhaps he could get the help it appears he so desperately needs.
As most people know, Trump doesn’t drink, and although some photos have surfaced on social media of him with glasses of what appears to be alcohol in his hand, for the sake of argument, let’s assume he doesn’t. He says he abstains because of his brother, an alcoholic who took his own life at the age of 42. Having lost two brothers to addiction and suicide, I understand the pain of this. The death deeply affected Tump, as this article in Newsweek, by Susan Cheever (daughter of famous alcoholic John Cheever), so eloquently explores.
