Politics during the silly season is both fascinating and depressing. Feeling ignored, left behind and disrespected, Trump supporters resemble suicide bombers, nihilists. Like their candidate, they disdain government institutions, like the presidency. Blow up the system, they say. Tear it down like the Buddhas of Bamiyan. Seize control, mutilate the establishment, subjugate women, ethnically cleanse minorities, defame liberalism, defund education, impose purity laws, and start over.
