The National Dumpster Fire

Go read the whole thing after you read this excerpt:

The week began with the news that a New York judge had allowed a lawsuit alleging fraud against Trump University to proceed to trial. The same day, a California judge cleared the way for a similar lawsuit to go ahead there, setting the first hearing on July 18—the first day of the Republican convention. It continued with Trump announcing, after his five-state northeast sweep, that he intended to campaign for president on a “message” borrowed, in part, from Bernie Sanders, the nation’s leading socialist. As the campaign moved to Indiana, Trump touted the endorsement of “tough guy” boxer Mike Tyson, who was convicted in 1992 of a rape in Indianapolis and whom Trump had defended at the time. Next Trump declared a core economic principle of his adopted party was no longer operative: “You can throw free trade out the window.”
