Quote Of The Day - Philip Roth On Trump

.. It isn’t Trump as a character, a human type—the real-estate type, the callow and callous killer capitalist—that outstrips the imagination,” he said. “It is Trump as President of the United States... Trump is ignorant of government, of history, of science, of philosophy, of art, incapable of expressing or recognizing subtlety or nuance, destitute of all decency,” Roth told the magazine in a string of emails. He “wield(s) a vocabulary of seventy-seven words that is better called Jerkish than English."  -- Acclaimed American novelist Philip Roth in The New Yorker. (h/t friend and FOB P.E.C.)
