It started on August 24, 2019, with a proclamation that caused surprise 
in some, astonishment in others, and cries of jubilation from yet 
others.  It began when the trump was answering questions from reporters 
about the trade war with China.  Without warning, he suddenly turned his 
gaze heavenward and proclaimed: “I am the chosen one.”  Although his 
innate modesty caused him a few days later to tweet that he was 
“kidding, being sarcastic, and just having fun,” his modesty was soon 
for naught when Rick Perry, the outgoing Energy Secretary, confirmed the 
trump’s proclamation.  Mr. Perry was not being sarcastic and “just 
having fun.” He was being dead serious.
