Someone wrote on the pages of the Baffler a few months ago that it was better to understand Trump as a religious phenomenon (interpreting him as an “avatar” of the trickster god Loki) than as a rational and political phenomenon. Mystical thinking begets weird conclusions.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
