As a human being, Mr. Trump is dreadful. As a politician, however, he’s a flaming catastrophe. His moral outrage would carry a lot more weight if he had some — morals, that is. He’s utterly devoid of any such quality. A quick look at his five months in office offers pretty stark evidence of his acrimony.
He’s eager to endanger the planet by pulling the U.S. out of the Paris climate accord. Happy to loosen gun restrictions. Tickled pink to yank healthcare out from under 24 million people. Fine with denying food to children and families and the elderly. But immigrants, well, they’re the terrorists.
