Mr. Ridgway, I don’t think that “40% of the country is smitten by his personality” . It seems to me that those who follow or support Trump do so because he is pretty much giving the finger to intelligent discussion and civil discord. He is also the Antichrist when it comes to social convention and cultural standards. They are the under belly of our country, the deplorables, the despicables, the majority who want to be treated as the Lords and Ladies of the United States. Interestingly, they miss the very point of a democracy.
