Understanding Trump

Not all that different from some other things I’ve posted, but I love how Seth Masket explained the Trump phenomenon for the Canadian news audience:

“There is a segment of the population that is always angry, at least when there’s a Democrat in the White House. They constantly feel that their government doesn’t represent them and that the country that they love and knew growing up is being taken away from them,” Masket said. “They will rally when someone says the sort of things that Trump is saying. It doesn’t take a particularly deft genius to tap into that.”

And I love this “I’m touching Donald Trump!!” photo with the article:
