From recent gedavis.com home page updates:
I ddn’t want to share past comments often because the orange-faced golf club king (as I often labeled him in comments) deserves to be forgotten beyond speaking ephemerally against his phony marketing business. But I share comments sometimes. Here’s another recent one:
During the Trump years, I’ve found more appalling than Trump that so many “Americans” support him. America is that much an unschooled nation, open to primitivist appeals.[There have been] hundreds [of comments] during the Trump Show, implicitly generating a journal of how authoritarian appeal failed—how our democratic system shows resilience.
After so many decades of education reform—such a commitment to repairing “A Nation at Risk” during the Reagan years; so much commitment to educational excellence through Democratic administrations—still, this is the America we are: Trump remains competitive, even as he loses. It’s a shameful, saddening, even tragic reality of being American. [full comment]
At the end of last night’s debate, I felt I knew him too well. Good riddance, ugly American.
• comment by me at the Washington Post: “Trump may be running the sleaziest presidential campaign ever.”
Thank goodness we were able to preserve sanity.
On forgetting a failed brand: my comment at dear Maureen Dowd’s obituary “King Kong Trump, Losing His Grip.”
