Tom Friedman had an opinion piece in the New York Times some while ago that said Trump is like a brain virus — he infects everything.
On Monday morning I was on the patio in the early morning reading and drinking coffee. Lolo, the groundskeeper who comes daily from the village, was working, and he and I were chatting. He said, “Your Presidente Trump does not like us.”
They were all so proud of President Obama, a person of color just like them. They know something terrible has happened, that there is a new and ugly tone emanating from the White House.
Here, a semi-literate man in a menial job in the middle of nowhere, feels Trump’s disdain. Like a brain virus, Trump infects everything.
