Trump as neutralizer of the “progressive elites”

How good can you get in defining the Trump presidency?

. . . any report card on the Trump Presidency must begin by recognizing the great progress he has made in undermining the power and legitimacy of our progressive elites.

Whether on Twitter or through more traditional media, Mr. Trump has used politically incorrect language and proclaimed overtly traditional values of faith and patriotism.

His language has at times been vulgar in more ways than one. But his intent has been clear: to affirm traditional norms in a manner designed to make elites lose their self-control and drop the mask that long covered their hatred for traditional American society and the people who love it. [Italics added]

My thoughts entirely. The lifting up of skirts over Trump and how he talks has put opinion-makers in a faintly ridiculous position. I take their indignation as confirmation of my support — and that of many others, I believe.
