Trump happens

Trump is what happens when social media becomes the platform for discourse.

There used to be gatekeepers that made sure the crazy candidates looked crazy, but now they get to go direct.

I always thought Sources Go Direct was a good thing. But like all good things, there’s a dark side too, I guess. Trump makes enough people feel good about themselves to quite possibly make him the Republican nominee.

Then the question is what’s left of the Republican Party after that?

And of the United States too.
