At Mount Rushmore, Trump warned that a “left-wing cultural revolution is designed to overthrow the American Revolution.”
But he has positioned himself as the defender-in-chief not only of the Founding Fathers but of Confederates who actually tried to dissolve the Union and made war on it. And he has chosen to race-bait in an era in which protests for racial justice have broad and diverse support.
A new Trump attack ad alleges a Biden administration will result in emergency calls routing to answering machines, while rioters, looters, murders, and rapists, turn city streets into Death Wish-like war zones–interesting how with Trump, it’s always rapists (and always hellscape city nightmares from a generation ago).
Racism is all Trump has left…and by the fall, it won’t surprise me if Trump’s recycling old White Citizen Council or Klan material more or less verbatim.
Oh, and then there’s the pandemic, which shows no sign of abating any time soon.
All this winning…
