The gay Frank Bruni knows a thing or two about uncontrollable compulsions, projecting his own onto Anthony Weiner and Donald Trump

This is rich, and no, not Frank Rich: "Weiner and Trump, Partners in Compulsion".

"[B]oth men are creatures of potent want and pure compulsion who lucked into forgiving audiences. Weiner’s finally stopped forgiving: Huma Abedin announced that she was formally separating from him after six years of marriage. Trump still has legions by his side. But for how long? ... Weiner sent strangers pictures of his bulge. Trump assured the viewers of a nationally televised debate that he was amply endowed. These impulses — these boasts — aren’t unrelated. ... insecure exhibitionists out for affirmation above all else?"
