What’s Good About Trump
In my view, Donald Trump is a vile person. I don’t know enough history to say that he is the worst president that has ever sat in the White House, but he is certainly at the very bottom—by far—of those who have held that office in my lifetime.
If that is so, what’s so good? Not anything that he did or said. I remain puzzled about how Trump got elected. My grasp of the views and motives of my fellow citizens is insufficient for me to understand how they could vote for him. Had he run against another red-blooded American man he surely would not now sit in that White House. But there he is: I ask again, what’s good about that? The answer: the reaction of the American public.
To be sure, it helped a lot that Trump was made responsible for serious offenses to children. That my fellow citizens will not accept. So, it’s a mixed bag. That’s surely the best kind now available.
