Yes, I agree. I think one of the reasons he's kept out of sight by his handlers, to the extent that they can manage it, is that this becomes glaringly apparently when he is involved in any sort of public exchange or even commentary.
The real reason he can't have press conferences is that people would probably be clamoring to have him removed from office on grounds of insanity after the first 15 minutes.
The more we observe this pernicious man, the more we realize that he only has two behavior patterns when dealing with others: he is alternately dismissive and derisive. He knows no other response.
I'd be happier if they did an even better job of keeping him out of sight. I'm sick of looking at him speechifying every day....
