I’m not the only one comparing political delusions to reality these days. I recently pointed out some commentators on the left who are concerned that their side’s never-ending, unhinged anti-Trump meltdown is undermining their own credibility. Now, New Criterion editor/publisher Roger Kimball is sounding the same warning for the die-hard NeverTrumpers on the Republican side.
Kimball looks at the overheated claims that “Trumpism” is fascist, racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic and authoritarian. He then compares those claims with how Trump has actually governed and what he’s accomplished. If any other Republican had his record, they’d be singing his praises instead of continuing to make outlandish claims that have no basis in reality. Highly recommended reading for those who prefer going through life without partisan blinders.
