He's a Weapon

Daniel McCarthy writes an essay for the New York Post looking at the historical roots of the sort of rambunctious politics that oppose the "uniparty" - the Washington establishment elite. He sees Donald Trump as the most recent champion chosen to fight on behalf of those whom the establishment doesn't like, represent, or benefit. About Trump, McCarthy concludes:

He’s resilient because Americans, from the Boston Tea Party onward, have always preferred breaking the law to living under broken laws, and the charges against Trump are irrelevant to the struggles of ordinary people against a self-dealing yet self-righteous elite.

Aristocracy is the problem, and Americans will fight it with any weapon at hand — including Donald Trump.

The other DrC says of him: "He's a bully, but he's on my side." We have no argument there.
