A minority of Branch Trumpidians consider it very important to a strong democracy to allow news organizations to criticize political leaders. Given Trump’s promises to use his power to silence critics if elected, that is not reassuring.

A minority being inclined to honor the outcome of elections is not reassuring either. Democratic institutions that have lasted centuries will encounter choppy seas ahead if Trumpism doesn’t dissipate soon.

On a tip from Torcer. Hat tip: Hot Air.
