Cory Wimberly (UTRGV): Trump, Propaganda, and the Politics of Ressentiment. Martin Longman on Trump’s strange appeal to cultural conservatives. On safari in Trump’s America: The country’s elites are desperate to figure out what they got wrong in 2016 — but can they handle the truth? To win elections, find out what makes people wince. Trump’s already largely won his war against the media. Thread: “Trump is the conservative movement, more fully & nakedly than any previous GOP president. In that, at least, he is honest”. No Bush, no Trump: Our previous Republican president fails to own up to his responsibility for our current one. Liberals, stop applauding George W. Bush: One half-decent speech doesn’t atone for paving the way for Donald Trump.
