Hate seems to be becoming a political tool like any other.
Donald Trump is even weaker and less credible than he was before as a result of this testimony, except perhaps in the eyes of his most die-hard fans.
The televised spectacle of blood in the streets, the ensuing displays of grief — they’ve become familiar enough to be numbing. Maybe this is the only way left for Americans to find fresh meaning in something so commonplace as a man firing a gun into a crowd.
Trump provides amusing entertainment. His personal fate is, however, just a diversion, and one we would be better to look past.
