Trump and the ‘Racist Tweets’

Excerpt: The president is president of those people, too, regardless of whether they accept him as such. Of course he won’t be able to bring most of them around. In terms of his viability, though, he needs to be seen by the broad middle of the country as wanting to be everyone’s president. The thing many of us most despise about the Left is its divisive politics, its determination not just to win but to destroy opponents — for the in terrorem effect or, it seems at times, for sheer sport. To me, it is not a selling point that Trump is willing to do to the Left what the Left does to us. I want to fight them; I don’t want to be them. (McCarthy frequently says exactly what I wanted to hear. This is one of those times. It's almost like  Trump wants to make it difficult for us to vote for him. If he'd learn to keep his mouth shut and Twitter-fingers away from the keypad, he'd be a shoo-in for re-election. As it is, who knows? Ron P.)
