I hate Donald Trump. But the media really is treating him unfairly.

With all his lies and exaggerations, you don't need to twist or misrepresent what he says

To say that I'm not a fan of Donald Trump would be an understatement. Even when he just announced his candidacy I was already howling in pain and shame.

I don't just disagree with Trump on the issues. I don't just think he's a bad person. I don't just think he's mentally unstable. I think the combination of those things, plus the angry identitarian movement he built, plus the weakness of American institutions and the power of the imperial presidency (plus nukes), pose a genuine threat to the continuation of the republic.
