Three cheers for the honorable men and women on the Right who are taking on Trump after his disgraceful behavior in Helsinki. George Will, for instance, just called ‘em like he saw ‘em and characterized Trump as This sad, embarrassing wreck of a man.
In a fierce and honest opinion piece, Will said that we probably have on our hands a existential threat to the nation, “Americans elected a president who — this is a safe surmise — knew that he had more to fear from making his tax returns public than from keeping them secret. The most innocent inference is that for decades he has depended on an American weakness, susceptibility to the tacky charisma of wealth, which would evaporate when his tax returns revealed that he has always lied about his wealth, too. A more ominous explanation might be that his redundantly demonstrated incompetence as a businessman tumbled him into unsavory financial dependencies on Russians. A still more sinister explanation might be that the Russians have something else, something worse, to keep him compliant.”
So, bravo to Mr. Will. We can disagree with him on many, many matters, but on this …on Trump…we can agree 100%.
