The greatest trick the devil ever pulled, advised Keyser Soze, was convincing the world he didnt exist.
One of the best lines in movie history, uttered by the recently unpersonned Kevin Spacey in his Oscar-winning turn in The Usual Suspects, it has the benefit of being true.
Not to plot-spoil it for readers who have not found time in the past quarter-century to see this two-hour tour de force, the twist of the tale is that, not only does the devil very much exist, he takes the form you would least suppose.
That is, he feigns weakness, innocence, and vulnerability, even as he exercises wickedness, power, and control.

Pretty good analogy.
Live and learn - I always thought that quote belonged to C.S. Lewis.
Greatt article, even though I never cared much for “The Usual Suspects”. I think Trump enunciates much of what the author wrote.
Important aspect to Soze that was left out is the narrative of how Soze responded when the Hungarian bad guys held his family and threatened to harm them.

“This particular technique of mobbing and public abuse is a staple of Castros Cuba and other communist regimes. In America, it was incubated on the college campus before its recent graduation to national politics. And it is a practical manifestation of the devils rage against the light.”
It actually comes from Baudelaire.
Would add also that the sociopathic like to use their opponents morality against them. Which explains why they shout crazy lies that they know are false. The sociopath knows their opponent must give benefit of the doubt due to their morality. Once that doubt is broken, the sociopath has no clothes. And neither will the babies that come to full term now
"They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobateTitus 1:16).
