But I do wonder what intimate memory haunts him when he looks back on his boyhood... I mean, there has to be something, right? What does this man "hide, repress, deny"? (Aside from his tax returns...)

Just thinking... It would be interesting, given the theme of this blog, to hear Trump's "most intense of boyhood memories." No? I mean, there has to be something in the history that accounts for what manifests in his "adult" life as extreme narcissism bordering on sociopathy. I use the quotation marks around "adult" advisedly, because in my view he remains an over-sized little boy. So... a moment in early childhood, perhaps? A critical experience as an adolescent in military academy? I actually heard an interviewer last--I didn't catch who or where--ask almost precisely the question I have been asking of other men: What is your most compelling childhood memory (I paraphrase.) Unsurprisingly, the Republican candidate for President of the United States completely ignored the question and went off on some unrelated tangent.
