David Gergen: Trump Does Live in a Fantasy World in Some Ways

‘When somebody says something nice about him, he thinks they really like him’

RUSH EXCERPT:
GERGEN: "He sure does. There's a peculiar quality about Donald Trump, he also does live a fantasy world in some ways. When somebody says something nice about him, he thinks they really like him and he interprets everything else for a while until he gets angry and comes out against them. He lashes out. So I -- I think -- listen, I think the one thing the country can feel good about is the two couples are getting along very well. That's the good news in a time when many Americans are celebrating, but a lot of other Americans continue to be very distressed."
