The news is out: [Over the last three weeks the president has found himself on the wrong side of public opinion – and history – on everything from police reform to symbols of the Confederacy which fought a civil war to preserve slavery 150 years ago. Even a sport synonymous with his base, NASCAR (National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing), is on a different wavelength having banned the Confederate flag from its events.
Some presidents capture a moment and give voice to a movement. At this time of national reckoning, however, Trump seems to have hit the wrong notes, out of tune with much (if not all) of the rest of the nation.]
Many people do not understand Trump. He is not that deep; maybe he was preoccupied with the location of his next cross burning. Trump has gone “nose-blind”; he cannot smell his own shit.
