Trump among the ruins
“I roam through clans of savage men, untamed by arts, untaught by pen.” (Samuel Johnson, quoted by Derik Turner)
Donald Trump is of course an arrogant braggart, but a less presumptuous man would probably not have taken on our decayed and corrupt culture.
Are the savage and untaught---who in our time are wiser than the taught---numerous enough? If not, it's Hillary, her husband, their dangerous delusions, and more decay and corruption. Trump may need at least a few of those older suburban ladies, weary of their couch-potato husbands, to vote for him.
