Well, I mean... Trump. Primarily, Trump would threaten American democracy if he wins in 2024. I wish you'd have asked me, Holman W. Jenkins, Jr., I could have cleared that right up for you.
Note the #humor tag, because this shit is a joke. Op-eds like this one are why I canceled my WSJ subscription.
- Ask yourself these questions: What was the voting-rights Kabuki of the past eight months all about, concerning a House bill with no chance of becoming law, if not to create talking points to delegitimize future election outcomes?
I'm usually really good with parodying the perspectives of people that I heartily disagree with, but for one of the first times in my life, I feel handsomely upstaged by this author unironically being a fucking idiot. I have read the article at least twice, and I have no idea what the guy intended for the audience to conclude from it.
- Remember, it was Stacey Abrams, not Donald Trump, who invented a successful modern career model by rejecting the legitimacy of her election defeat. Mr. Kagan’s blind spot is how our national establishment disempowered itself as an upholder of the constitutional and democratic “norms” he now calls on it to defend. What the public sees is liars and frauds in every direction. More alarming, to a certain part of the public, Mr. Trump appears as one man doing his lying and fraudulence in the face of the lying and fraudulence of a near-monolithic establishment.
Yeah, y'all, at least Trump is honest about his lying, right?? Seriously wtf is this article, there are WSJ user comments of higher caliber below it. But forget those, I really liked this one:
- Trump had a solid record of achievement as President.
But I guess Biden is better because he got rich selling our tax dollars to dictators?
Now that's the type of shit I'd come up with in parody. "Selling our tax dollars". Beautiful.
