Trump’s speech has so far had deliberate echoes of Lincoln (we are gathered here) and FDR (forgotten men and women). Now he’s channeling Bill Clinton (their pain is our pain). Now Carter (I will never let you down). Now Reagan (we will shine for everyone to follow). Now himself (we will make America great again). Plus he included a very nice shout out to Sam Peckinpah (American carnage).
It’s time to climb a tree and pretend none of this is happening.
