Jonathan Rauch and Benjamin Wittes see Donald Trump and his political coalition as uniquely dangerous, instead of as symptomatic of crumbling institutions and a declining civic impulse.
The media’s weird praise for North Korea over the weekend is a timely reminder of why we just can’t trust the Left with power.
President Trump signed a deal to avert a government shutdown for another two years by basically giving the Democrats all the spending they wanted.
The real motives of Rauch, Wittes, and NeverTrumpers have nothing to do with pragmatic politics in response to a ‘dangerous’ president or concern about the rule of law.
