Incisivo, brilhante e claro, como (quase) sempre, Daniel Hannan: Donald Trump’s enemies will keep him in power.
There’s a viral video from Washington DC on Inauguration Day. Anarchists have started a fire on K Street, prompting a public-spirited Trump supporter to turn up with a fire extinguisher. The crowd jeers as he puts out the flames, then throws things, then attacks him. It’s hard to watch the clip without your sympathy swinging, however slightly, to Trump’s supporters and, by extension, to the president himself.
Truly, Trump’s best friends are his detractors. That’s the sort of aphorism that columnists like to toss out, but, on this occasion, it is literally true. Donald Trump would not have been elected without the hysterical, inchoate rage of the other side; and that continuing rage seems set to prop him up in office.
