Headline and sub-headline from Salon:
Exploiting a broken system: Trump’s within striking distance of Hillary — and that’s mind-boggling
Within our present system, a reality-show demagogue can make a legit run for president — that has to change
A few quick questions regarding these sentiments:
- Barack Obama did not exploit the American fascination with personality to become President? Did he or did he not run a variation of Make America Great Again in 2008?
- Do both parties participate in the incredibly shallow political discourse we have in this country?
- Does Trump being within striking distance speak to a broken system or to the fact that Hillary Clinton is a shitty candidate?
