When Trump Calls to Concede an Election, Guess Who He Talks About
Now that Biden has returned Trump’s phone call to concede the 2020 election, Trump has stopped feeling insulted and can now luxuriate in talking about himself.
You know the people who steer conversation so readily back to themselves and their exploits? It’s fun to write a character who loves to talk about himself and fails completely to show interest in his listener. I know I’ve been guilty of that, myself, but I try to overcome my own ego and be a good listener, which, it turns out, is more interesting and less predictable than running your own mouth all the time. Blowing the idiot wind.
So, when I’m writing this character, I don’t just hear Trump’s voice but the voices of people in my life who only want to talk and hear about themselves. And, I’ll tell you, it feels kind of good, maybe even therapeutic.
