Just a Guess
Charles M. Blow, in “The Hijacked American Presidency”:
Last week, when Donald Trump attacked two MSNBC hosts, people were aghast. The condemnation came quickly and from all quarters.
But his words shouldn’t have shocked. His tweet was just another pebble on a mountain of vulgarities. This act of coarseness was in fact an act of continuity. Trump was being Trump: the grossest of the gross, a profanity against propriety.
This latest episode is simply part of a body of work demonstrating the man’s utter contempt for decency. We all know what it will add up to: nothing.
Nothing is right. It’s the same stuff we saw in the election, the stuff that got him elected.
Just a guess, but as much resisting and activism and outrage as there is out there, he’s headed for re-election.
