Michael Gerson, Washington Post: Given even the lowest expectations, Donald Trump still has the capacity to surprise. In recent days, Trump has sneered at the looks of a woman who accuses him of sexual assault, denigrated the appearance of Hillary Clinton, proposed to drug-test his opponent, used his campaign to promote what appears to be a Russian covert operation, asserted that Clinton has held secret meetings with international bankers “to plot the destruction of U.S. sovereignty,” attacked Saturday Night Live, promised to jail his opponent and contended that the “whole election is being rigged.” Which means that Trump is sickeningly cruel, boorish, bonkers, subversive, conspiratorial, obsessive, authoritarian and reckless with the reputation of American democracy. This is quite a closing argument for a presidential candidate.
