  • Rembert Browne: "An omnipotent voice... 'If a protester starts demonstrating in the area around you, please do not touch or harm the protester.' Laughter erupted.... Sermonlike rambles punctuated by discriminatory preaches to the choir, many of which entailed getting the demographics of this country back to where they once were.... Two hours with Trump was a different beast: as real, as frightening, and as authentically American as it gets."
  • Scott Lemieux: "David Brooks can get ahead of the game by just joining the 'Hillary Clinton is a Republican in my imaginary political universe' racket..."
