Derrida wrote about the correspondence between the hyphen and the hymen and how they shape subtext as a text is transmitted across different media (e.g., retweets). POTUS would have no idea what this means as the only book he’s ever read has his picture on the cover. He only grabs that in order to hand you a copy, make you think “how generous he is,” and then send you the bill with a $30 personal delivery charge.
