Is Trump King Lear, Richard lll, Or 1984?

This article is for Shakespeare fans.  It argues that we have avoided 1984 and settled into the tragedy of King Lear.  One of the commentators explained why Richard lll was a more apt comparison.  In any case Trump is a recognizable character who was understood by great writers. Our tragedy is that our electoral system failed to do its job.  Too many did not recognize this king for who he is.  It is our tragedy.
