The Republican Fausts

David Brooks, in today’s editorial – The New York Times:

In the first place, the Trump administration is not a Republican administration; it is an ethnic nationalist administration. Trump insulted both parties equally in his Inaugural Address. The Bannonites are utterly crushing the Republican regulars when it comes to actual policy making.

Those who self-identify with the GOP, voted for Mr. Trump, yet didn’t know this are fools. Trump has been a Democrat, a Republican, an independent over the decades. He’s claimed positions all over the map. The one consistent position he’s taken is pro-Trump.

I thought a Clinton win would mark a crushing defeat for the GOP. Turns out it was a Trump victory that’ll do it.

Brooks is a good read.
