The Crisis of Trumpism - POLITICO Magazine

Trumpism is in crisis.

This isn’t a function of poll numbers, or the Russia controversy, or any other melodrama of the past three months, but something more fundamental: No officeholder in Washington seems to understand President Donald Trump’s populism or have a cogent theory of how to effect it in practice, including the president himself.

Let me make it simple for them. His nibs won by not being Hellary Clinton, and by appealing to people who, whatever their other limitations, were capable of seeing right through La Clinton's facade of excruciatingly boring preachiness, to the gangster, traitor and warmonger underneath.

Now all they have to do is turn that position into a bunch of policies. Most of which ought to read "first do no harm".
