I don’t think Trump can recover from his latest “error”. When Jimmy Fallon denounces him you know the jig is up. The contempt for Trump is palpable across the board. Well deserved. Probably the worst thing I have ever seen from a politician in America.

I have never seen a politician so pulverized on TV in my life, and justly so. He has given himself no way out. Apart from the evil, the stupidity is stupendous.
And yet most of GOP base continue to support him.
Yes, a notable (and depressing) fact. Impervious to reason.
Donald Trump as philosopher, with his opus magnum, “The World as Wealth and Misrepresentation.”
I think Trump’s message to working class whites, that “the system is rigged” struck so deeply that he really need do nothing more to retain their endless loyalty. That he misidentifies who is doing the rigging is beyond them. I grew up in Bedford County, central Pennsylvania, a place made up of decent hard working people.The county went 75% for Trump. If the election were held today, I’d imagine it would probably be 70%
Every political system in history has been rigged–by those in power (usually the rich and best armed).
