Writing in the Washington Post this Wednesday, columnist George Will contends that President Trump’s “rhetorical mustard” is starting to lose its flavor. “The entertainer has become a bore, and foretelling his defeat no longer involves peering into a distant future,” Will writes.
“Never has a U.S. election come at such a moment of national mortification. In April 1970, President Richard M. Nixon told a national television audience that futility in Vietnam would make the United States appear to the world as ‘a pitiful, helpless giant.’ Half a century later, America, for the first time in its history, is pitied.”
According to Will, America is in a “downward spiral” thanks to the fact that the “most frivolous person” to run for president now sits in the nation’s highest office.
“The nation’s floundering government is now administered by a gangster regime,” writes Will. “It is helpful to have this made obvious as voters contemplate renewing the regime’s lease on the executive branch.”
