High Life: Taki


New York

I have never seen anything like it. If Adolf Hitler were running for president, he would match Donald Trump's negative coverage. If Benito were in the race, his notices would be far more favourable. When The Donald emerged as the last man standing, certain New York Times columnists became unhinged. One hysterical woman pundit accused Trump of ...not having any money. The one I liked best came from a colleague of hers, who is usually unreadable because of his wordy and flat prose. That particular fool had declared that the word Trump would never appear in his column. Once Donny baby had wiped the floor with his opponents, the fool did mention his name, describing him as 'an unbelievable joke'. One Washington pundit had vowed to eat his copy if Trump got past a couple of primaries. He ate humble pie instead. The short little fat man who has never backed a winner except for the Iraq war (some winner), that mincing rat William Kristol, announced last year that Trump would drop out before the Iowa primary. Kristol's predictions should be collected and distributed in schools. 'How to always get it wrong and get paid for it' should be the title.

In desperation, the Times came up with a Sulzberger buddy, another mincing rat of a fellow, one Steven Rattner, a chap who is not allowed to deal in stocks and bonds after an agreement with regulators following allegations of not-quite-kosher conduct about five years ago. Rattner wrote bad things about Trump and his taxes, but forgot to mention that Trump is allowed to deal on the stock market while he, Rattner, is not.

Mind you, the lurid propaganda against The Donald is having the opposite effect. He is now being attacked on account of his attitude towards women. He likes them, ergo he must be a rapist of sorts. A desperado at the New Yorker , one Packer (unfortunately for him not related to the Packer family of Australia), thinks Trump is the pits because he (Donald) is talking to white America, especially the less well off. That's a new one on me. Everyone talks to minorities in the land of the depraved, but Trump is the bad guy because he talks to the less well off of the majority. See what I mean when I tell you the fourth estate is becoming unhinged?

I did not foresee the rise of Trump, although any clear-minded person should have. For far too long, working-class people have been dismissed as not smart enough, their passion rooted in racism, guns and beer. …
