when the shoe fits it
pinches one wearing it which
about says it all
Which gets to the larger question that supersedes all the ins and outs of the maneuvering over the Republican presidential nomination and the future of the party: How, in a matter of less than a decade, could this once-proud country have evolved to the point that there is a serious debate over choosing a presidential candidate who is a lifelong opportunist, a pathological and malignant narcissist, a sociopath, a serial liar, a philanderer, a tax cheat who does not pay his bills and a man who socializes with Holocaust deniers, who has pardoned his criminal allies, who encouraged a violent insurrection, who, behind a wall of bodyguards, is a coward and who, without remorse, continually undermines American democracy?
The closing paragraph of the Guest Opinion piece, Trump Is Unraveling Before Our Eyes, but Will It Matter? by Thomas B. Edsall.
I have no comment to make on this remarkable sentence, and notice it is one sentence, but instead I turn to familiar old idioms:
If the shoe fits …
only the wearer knows where the shoe pinches …
I think the above sentence is truly fitting to a certain person.
I also think that those who might complain about what the sentence says about that person know too well why it fits.
Overall, I end with another idiom, ’nuff said!’
