Aardvark must confess that he is feeling a little embittered. Sucking up to Putin. Embracing global climate catastrophe. Threatening a trade war. Those who voted for Trump have well and truly selected the person whom they so richly deserve.
The essential Paul Waldman has cautioned us against regarding the Trump base as, in Waldman’s words, “a bunch of Cro-Magnon mouth-breathers.” I quite agree—though I think the comparison may be unfair to the Cro-Magnon, who had a lot of artistic talent.
In any event, Aardvark—an inclusive type of person, who has charity toward all and malice toward none—would like to offer up this song for Trump supporters’ listening pleasure.
