A 94-year-old prophecy is fulfilled

H.L.Mencken (born 1880 – died 1956) was a journalist, satirist, critic and registered Democrat.

Mencken wrote the brief editorial comment below while working for the Baltimore Evening Sun, which appeared in the July 26,1920 edition.

“As democracy is perfected, the office of the President represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the 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.”

– H.L. Mencken, the Baltimore Evening Sun, July 26, 1920

So it was written, and so it has come to pass…
