True, Americans are swearing far more than they used to and all forms of media are chockfull of such language these days.
The sad fact is that our culture has grown depressingly coarse. And yes, Donald Trump is at least partly to blame, given his own language on the campaign trail.
But if Democrats like Gillibrand think that was the key to Trump’s electoral success, then they remain as clueless as ever about what happened last November.
Fact is, Trump’s language crystallized popular rage at Washington politics and came off as genuine. Gillibrand’s f-bombs are nothing but gratuitous and phony.
