Trump the bullshitter
I continue to see Trump mostly as a conman who has made it to the big time. Jeet Heer describes how the right-wing media’s accommodation of their conspiracy theories helped cultivate the base as the perfect marks for his taking. Of course, the base views itself as more discerning than average, and its media as more trustworthy. Of course. And any politician who cannot respect those conspiracy theories must be a turncoat. Like Trey Gowdy.
