TRUMP IS THE END RESULT OF A EXHAUSTED, DYSFUNCTIONAL POLITICAL SYSTEM WELL-DESERVING OF EUTHANASIA: “When It Comes To Donald Trump, I Hate Everyone,” Mollie Hemingway writes at the Federalist. “I hate Donald Trump, people who love Donald Trump, people who hate Donald Trump, and media who cover Donald Trump.” Plus this:

I know many of the people who say they’re voting for Trump are probably just normal people who don’t pay a ton of attention to politics and think he’s an entertaining fellow who is funny and candid. It’s not entirely surprising that a man who has been a household name for decades would enjoy the support he has. I’m a political junkie, and once a week I have to think really hard about who all the candidates running for president even are. And another portion of his voters are probably people who are just sick to death of Washington, D.C., even if they’re not particularly ideological.

A Twitter user who goes by the name Political Math said of these people, and please excuse his French, “The world makes a lot of sense when you realize that the #1 priority of Trump supporters is to tell you to go [expletive deleted] yourself.” He added, “And I don’t mean this as a slur: Trump supporters are really just *more* sick of bull[deleted] out of DC than they care about Trump.”

Read the whole thing. I like Glenn’s analogy of Trump as the Beltway Elite’s chosen “Destructor” (and who doesn’t love Mr. Stay Puft Man?), but I’ll be curious to see what remains on the other side of the apocalypse.
