“The Republican Party I know and belong to …”
You say that 5 times, but here you admit that not only does it not exist, it never has in your lifetime. Don’t you see that’s exactly the misplaced nostalgia Trump is playing to?
Every time he says “make America great again” he’s invoking a mythological history that people are sure once existed. And if only it weren’t for all the “bad people” messing things up for us “real Americans” we could have that society again.
