Have you seen the Trump vs. Sanders debate on Comedy Central? More than 4 million people have.
Have you seen “Kids React to Donald Trump“? Nearly 10 million people have.
Have you seen that Donald ducks releasing his tax returns?
(Actually, a friend notes — thanks, Paul! — he ducks almost any detailed answers when pressed. Perhaps most famously when a Washington Post editor asked about his potential use of nuclear weapons and Trump answered, “I’ll tell you one thing. This is a very good looking group of people here. Could I just go around [the table] so I know who the hell I’m talking to?” And that was the end of that.)
Let’s hope the next 180 days have a happy ending, however cartoonish one of the candidates, however entertaining or horrifying the campaign. Namely, that as November 8 draws near, voters get as stone cold serious as the stakes require.
Otherwise, as I quoted the Economist yesterday, Trump’s triumph will be America’s tragedy.
On that cheerful Friday-the-13th note . . . have a great weekend!
