Trump in Exile: A Tale of Two Men

“He was the best of candidates. He was the worst of candidates. He was regaled for his wisdom. He was reviled for his foolishness. He gave his followers hope, led his opponents to despair. Donald Trump is not Paris, and no 21st century American political writer reminds anyone of Charles Dickens, but I invoke the opening of ‘A Tale of Two Cities’ to illustrate the duality of hope and despair that the name Donald J. Trump elicits. MAGA Republicans got their wish Tuesday when Trump announced his third campaign for president. So did progressive Democrats. It remains to be seen which of them will live to regret their luck.” (11/21/22)
