The tide of hate and the man in the White House

We have one more Shabbat before Election Day. In this time, their father is supposed to hold about two rallies a day in which he will play his greatest hits—incitements to violence and scapegoating barely coated with the plausible deniability of humor and code words.

But everyone knows what he’s doing.

A couple of tweets calling out the obvious anti-Semitism behind the attack in Pittsburgh are meaningless if Trump keeps dividing us with the same old tropes.

That may have worked for his fluke win in 2016 when he was just a guy running a fake college who played a rich guy on TV. Now he’s the President. Or he’s supposed to be.
