From the mouth of Beltway political fixture and dispenser of its conventional wisdom David Gergen on CNN, an atypically clear-eyed statement on neo-fascist sociopath Donald "Rump" Trump and his Carrier plant appearance yesterday (about which more later):
“I think if there was any doubt that we’re putting an end to one chapter in American history and moving to a new one, he dispelled that tonight. This is goodbye to American leadership in the world. Goodbye to globalization. He’s bringing America home. He’s going to lead a nativist, nationalistic, populist movement and if you want to join up with him fine. If you don’t, forget it.....He’s in charge and he has a lot of support in the Congress. That kind of speech will fire up his base, and it’s going to leave a lot of other people (pause)...I knew I didn’t like the son of a bitch.” (emphasis added)Let's see if CNN's suits tell Gergen to apologize.
