We were ripe for the pickings from a con man like Trump, so give the devil his due. He knows an easy mark when he sees one. How do I loathe thee? Let me count the ways:
A feckless batch of fake conservative media stars for sale to the highest bidder, willing to carry your water? Check.
A network that is “fair and balanced” in name only, which is willing to basically become your Super PAC? Check.
A racial group who’ve lost their jobs and seen their wages decline, who are vulnerable to what is essentially Louis Farrakhan for white people? Check.
A celebrity-driven culture of low-information voters that Obama proved is ripe for the pickings? Check.
