Taibbi on Trump

Trump Unbound

In a new article for Rolling Stone, Matt Taibbi excoriates Trump:

It turns out we let our electoral process devolve into something so fake and dys­func­tion­al that any half-bright con man with the stones to try it could walk right through the front door and tear it to shreds on the first go.

And Trump is no half-bright con man, either. He’s way better than average.

Both Trump and Cruz scare me, for very different reasons. Trump is impulsive, all id, doesn’t give a fuck, riling up the worst impulses of the American electorate for short-term gain. Who knows what this loose cannon will do? Cruz is a nasty piece of work, cold and cal­cu­lat­ing, a hard-right con­ser­v­a­tive and a Do­min­ion­ist, widely hated by those who’ve worked with him. They’re both very dangerous and I do not look forward to either of them winning the Presidency.

I favor Bernie Sanders but I will throw my support behind Hillary Clinton, should she win the Democratic nomination.
