The Right Enemies

Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Peggy Noonan, of The Wall Street Journal, looks at the first 100 days of Team Trump and concludes:
The cursing pols, the anathematizing abortion advocates, the screeching students—they are now the face of the progressive left.

This is what America sees now as the face of the Democratic Party. It is a party blowing itself up whose only hope is that Donald Trump blows up first.

He may not be lucky in all of his decisions or staffers, or in his own immaturities and dramas. But hand it to him a hundred days in: He’s lucky in his main foes.
As Napoleon famously asked: "I know he's a good general, but is he lucky?" Lucky is good, Trump is lucky.
