  • Robert Reich’s “terrible dream”:

    I had a terrible dream last night that Donald Trump was elected president.This was because the contest between him and the Democratic candidate had been reported the same way every presidential contest is reported, and he was treated in the press as the moral equivalent of his opponent — despite his bigotry, lies, narcissism, xenophobia, misogyny, half-brained policies, and his bullying, and incitement of violence against Muslim-Americans, Mexican-Americans, and black Americans.

    I woke up relieved it hadn’t happened, and more resolute than ever in making sure it doesn’t. Mark my words: Donald Trump is the most dangerous presidential candidate of a major party in American history. The influential Republicans now beginning to back him are risking the future of America and the world. Shame on them. History will not treat them kindly.
