A Little Note on the Trump Phenomenon.

So what do I say about Charlottesville and Trump’s response? Nothing much; it’s all being said by more important names than mine. I suppose the bigger picture here is that the cracks which were papered over 150 years ago are still there and maybe growing, and that the overriding impression is that America is a culture in crisis. And Trump isn’t helping.

Hey ho, let’s go briefly back a day or two to another crisis in Venezuela and Trump’s response to that one. Is there any situation anywhere in the world to which the President won’t suggest the possibility of a military response? And what about at home? Will he be mooting a military response to Obamacare next? He’s one funny guy.
