“Trump Gets Away with Stuff Because He Does”

 

Trump’s people, a lot of them, are people filled with the resentments and humiliations of a lifetime.

They take pleasure in a leader who not only gets away with things but speaks rudely to the powerful.

It hardly represents a set of impulses on which to build a political movement, especially for the world’s leading nation.

But then, that’s just America, or at least a good portion of it. And it never was well suited for a leadership role in the world.

Leadership happened by the sheer accident of being the last big man standing after WWII.
