Wrong. He has 40-plus years of chief executive experience, and unlike his opponent, he does not through fits of rage. But when the silly put down of Trump comes from an uninformed newspaper staff that is uniquely unqualified to judge Donald Trump because of its corporate climate of anti-Trump hysteria.
Not one of the Washington Post's 30 or so columnists -- plus its hundreds of "reporters" -- sides with Donald Trump. Daily its editors dispatch reporters to find the dirt on The Donald to the point of absurdity. Did you know 25 years ago he posed as his own PR man?
Meanwhile 25 years ago, Hillary was trashing the women who slept with her husband, and up to her eyeballs in the failed Whitewater development project.
What you have at the Post -- as evidenced by its daily dollops of Trump nontroversies -- is an echo chamber. The outline of a sheriff's badge becomes a Star of David which becomes a Holocaust patch which becomes an anti-Semitic attack on Hillary. Never mind that she isn't Jewish. The staff at the Washington Post and the staffs at the other establishment publications in Washington seem to talk themselves
He's Hitler, therefore they are doing God's work and they must do anything to stop him.
The effect is both self-delusional and self-defeating. When you badger a fellow day in and day out over petty things, you piddle away your moral authority should he do something really wrong. The story of the lad who cried wolf comes to mind.
The editorial, "Donald Trump is a unique threat to American democracy," is itself a threat to our democratic republic, as are the many, many references to Hitler and other strongmen made both in the Post and other establishment publications. As the inevitability of a Trump presidency someone may try something ugly to stop it.
