The Normalization of Trump

Here is a good example of an article which tries to normalize Trump.  With all due respect to the writer I find this article to be bizarre.  The author, obviously a skilled writer, parses and dissects, analyzes and ruminates.  

Sadly, the article also reads like an amoral clinical report.  She speaks of Americans who are frightened of a Trump Presidency.  Ms. Foran, what about you?  Aren't you frightened of a Trump Presidency?

This criticism of mine is not just one person ranting.  What kind of person wouldn't be frightened of such an erratic individual, one who has actually promised an "unpredictable" foreign policy, according to the author?  Unpredictable in the current world?  What kind of person would not be frightened of someone who said it might be a good idea for Japan and South Korea to get their own nuclear weapons.  So much for the U.S. foreign policy goal of seven decades through Democratic and Republican Administrations of nuclear non-proliferation.  Many other examples can be given of Trump's utter unsuitability for the Presidency.  Mrs. Clinton gave many in her speech this past Thursday.

We have reached the height of irresponsibility and idiocy when Donald Trump has become a subject for scientific objectivism  in reporting.  The analysis of Trump belongs with any psychiatrists who would care to take the subject on.  The fact that he is considered a worthy candidate for serious political analysis by journalists is a sad, sad commentary on both journalists and the state of America's intellectual life.
