I guess I missed it, somehow... the ruination of America, the collapse of society, the onset of post-history. I thought Donald Trump didn't read much and was not a reflective man, but he does seem have to a taste for Cormac McCarthy:
Mothers and children trapped in poverty in our inner cities; rusted-out factories scattered like tombstones across the landscape of our nation; an education system, flush with cash, but which leaves our young and beautiful students deprived of knowledge; and the crime and gangs and drugs that have stolen too many lives and robbed our country of so much unrealized potential.
This American carnage stops right here and stops right now.
Carnage. Entrapment. The burning city on a hill. We have even been robbed in the night:
The wealth of our middle class has been ripped from their homes and then redistributed across the entire world.
And then, we were abandoned... but the promise!
You will never be ignored again.
I think what's going on is that when Trump pries himself from his golden bowl and gets a look at how the rest of the people live, he can't help but wonder how he missed the nuclear apocalypse that has clearly caused such misery. From his perch it must seem like we're all grubbing in the dirt for insects.
His people are revolting, and it's only been a few minutes.
