I had two, sort of conflicting thoughts, about Donald Trump.
One: What if, when all is said and done, in 2020 or 2024, Trump turns out to have been a pretty good, even great president? That would certainly seem to break the monopoly of professional lifetime politicians. Wouldn’t that be kind of a nice result? I’m pretty sure that does animate at least a little bit of the hostility to Trump from the powers-that-be.
Two: What if the first words out of Trump’s mouth after he’s sworn in are, “Fooled ya,’ suckers! Bwahahahaha!”
Would there then be the loudest, “I told you so!” in history?
