Trump's PA Speech

CNN quotes long-time political analyst David Gergen on the subject of President Trump's speech last night in Pennsylvania.
This was the most divisive speech I've ever heard from a sitting American president. He played to his base and he treated his other listeners, the rest of the people who have been disturbed about him or oppose him, he treated them basically as "I don't care, I don't give a damn what you think, because you're frankly like the enemy."
Was it divisive? Yes, certainly. Was Trump justified in so doing? Of course.

Are they the enemy? They have explicitly declared themselves to be his enemy.

Should he take them at their word? Trump would be a fool to do otherwise.

Remember who started this whole round of "identity group politics" ... Democrats. As we have said repeatedly, Democrats have sown the identity group wind and are now reaping the identity group whirlwind.

It is Karma.
