"This is the last gasp, last resort pathetic plea from a desperate father about to watch eight centuries of liberal intellectual tradition, Judaic scholarship, and sociopath-free DNA go down the toilet."
This is precisely the kind of media incompetence that gave us Trump in the first place.
Paul Krugman is actually being awfully kind about Donald Trump supporters, given the extensive evidence supports the notion that they are in fact a bunch of barely literate morons.
