A Trump Defense Argument that Would Not Insult Your Intelligence

Ross Douthat makes the kind of argument that anyone defending Trump—anyone, that is, who was actually trying to persuade the unpersuaded—would make.

It’s still wrong, but it doesn’t spit in the eye of the unconvinced, and it isn’t the kind of argument that would only be made by a fool, or a knave speaking to fools. It’s the kind of argument that doesn’t eventuate in your jumping off a cliff.
