Bill Blain: “Trying To Explain Trump Does Not Make Me A Bad Person”

Over weekend drinks, dinners, very good lunches and rugby banter I was repeatedly told by my chums with real jobs in Industry, Services and Government how terrible this Trump fellow is turning out. It’s terribly liberal of us all to be illiberal about him.

A couple of times I tried to respond in rational terms about the limits to Trump’s power, the political balance behind him, the quality of his advisors, and the potential upside from real Washington reform and a re-write of the tax code. That’s when the crowd turned on me – apparently free-speech in the Western Democracies means anyone who tries to be vaguely objective about Trump is definitionally a proto-fascist woman-hating racist. It’s not just luvely-dovey actors that want to show off just how politically correct they are in their contempt of the duly elected US president.

Trying to explain Trump does not make me a bad person. 

And to be frank… we worry too much. We act like we are unfamiliar with the concept of having a numpty as the most powerful man on the planet. Actually, it’s hardly a new thing – up until comparatively recently power was hereditary or seized by the strongest – which meant inbred bellicose numptys leading powerful countries was the norm – hence human history.
