I’ve actually heard Robin Wright speak in person, at the Camden Conference in Maine. She’s a noted journalist and Middle East expert. She has a new piece in the New Yorker about Trump’s essential ignorance, and his seeming lack of interest or ability in learning anything while on the job.
Combined with a new article in the New York Times about how potential Republican candidates for the U.S. Presidency in 2020 are starting stealth campaigns — including Pence — the overall impression is of blood in the water. Trump’s core voters may still love him, but the sharks — even in his own party — are circling.
