The guy who cuts in line at the coffee shop – people, usually men, who take advantage of others because they have a heightened sense of entitlement that they feel gives them a free pass. You and I have a word for these people. Philosopher Aaron James has an entire theory about them, complete with definitions and a formal taxonomy.  He laid it out in his first book  called “A-Holes: a Theory.”  Now he’s back with a case in point:   “A-Holes: A Theory of Donald Trump.” But is that really what you want to call the President of the United States?
