I think that, among other things, Mr. Trump has initiated debate and talk about important issues that were being soft-pedalled and ignored. Oh, they were mentioned, but there was never much heat except among very committed activists.
Mr. Trump was an opportunist.
Senator Mitch McConnell and obstructionist Republicans are non-opportunists.
Oh, and one other thing. I am extremely tired of people like The Huffington Post writing articles, then attaching a disclaimer at the end that Mr. Trump is a bigot, a racist, and Himmler's great-grand-nephew.
That is almost as trashy as FOX news attacking Mr. Trump in their "fair and balanced" manner.
At least Mr. Trump has pulled the blinders off everyone's eyes and has ripped the cloaks of sanctimonious from the Media emperors, forcing them into new clothes. We may now see exactly how insidious our media are, and how inanely empty of real content.
