Lakoff: Dump's dangerous metaphor

From Lakoff:

"Trump's presidency is increasingly defined by a dangerous metaphor: 'The President is the Nation.' He truly believes it's the job of the American people, and their government, to serve his interests.
He's got it backwards, and his mentality is more suited to a dictatorship than a presidency. In our democracy, we have a government of, by, and for the people. We pledge allegiance to our nation, not to the personal and financial interests of the person in the White House.We cover this critical issue, and also discuss what the Cambridge Analytica scandal says about conservative attempts to weaponize cognitive science, in Episode 7 of FrameLab.
