Trump Was Inevitable

In response to Joe Scarborough's ridiculous op-ed for the Washington Post, in which the former Republican Congressman further tries to distance himself from the rise and domination of Trump in the Republican Party, I've got a post at Medium: "Trump Is Not an Anomaly of Republican Politics; He Is the Inevitable Endgame."

I posted it there because much of the text will be familiar to longtime readers in this space, as I've posted it in various forms here (and once at Shareblue) over the years. I keep tinkering with it, and keep republishing it by necessity. Unfortunately, the idea that the Republican Party hasn't deliberately cultivated bigotry as a central part of its winning strategy never seems to go away.

Anyway. There's some new stuff, so head on over if you want to read it, and please share it if you are so inclined!
