A clear statement

From Michael Gerson in the Washington Post:

Trump is the demagogue that our Founding Fathers feared

"With the theory of a presidential nominee as a wrecking ball, we have reached the culmination of the founders’ fears: Democracy is producing a genuine threat to the American form of self-government. Trump imagines leadership as pure act, freed from reflection and restraint. He has expressed disdain for religious and ethnic minorities. He has proposed restrictions on press freedom and threatened political enemies with retribution. He offers himself as the embodiment of the national will, driven by an intuitive vision of greatness. None of this is hidden."

No, it's not.  I hope the USA is paying attention.

 And keeps paying attention.
