LOS ANGELES If the United States escapes a disaster Nov. 8, it will have done so narrowly. Donald Trump, a dictator-in-waiting with a brats temper and a prigs scowl, has won the support of tens of millions of Americans. Its fortunate that we are less than a month from the election because we are running out of words to describe him: this phony, this liar, this blowhard, this cheat, this bully, this misogynist, this demagogue, this predator, this bigot, this bore, this egomaniac, this racist, this sexist, this sociopath. I will not go on. Its pointless. Everyone knows, not least his supporters.
Trump slashed and burned his way through the second debate, taking no prisoners, loosing the dogs of war, hovering over Hillary Clinton like some dyspeptic Mafia boss, and threatening to put her behind bars if he becomes president.
At times, watching was like rubbernecking a hideous accident. Trumps was a good performance, performance being the operative word. It was also shot through with viciousness and ignorance. Trump invokes but does not understand the Constitution; he understands a business and a TV show where he can fire anybody, anytime. He knows no other modus operandi, which is why debate is really a misnomer for anything in which he is involved.
Youre jailed! Maybe that will be Trumps next TV act. Call it The Warden. He has demonstrated beyond doubt that the human inclination to bow to an all-powerful master endures.
This has been one long, strange trip for the Republican nominee. I dont think that he can fool all Americans all of the time. Still hes come a very long way with a single idea: I, and I alone, can channel your anger into an American renaissance. Policies have never really come into the Trump phenomenon. Saviors dont have policies. They have energy.
It now behooves America, whatever the outcome next month, to address that anger mixed with fear. It is widespread. Trump understood this and went to work. He grasped that many people in a polarized America, whipped up by Fox News and ushered into a post-fact world by the antics of the Republican Party, were ready for a straight-talking outsider prepared to offer scapegoats for every frustration. Trumps has been a single-note campaign; that note is rage. It has been particularly effective against the ultimate insider, Clinton.
