Andrew McCarthy does an outstanding job making the case for Trump. I don't think that Trump's loose talk is as harmful as Mr. McCarthy assesses it, but that's a nitpick. This is a piece that zeroes in on the fundamental, essential point:
The most compelling case for Trump has never been Trump. It has always been, and remains, Trump . . . as opposed to what?
Also, I recommend spending a minute with this young woman: "If you’re liberal, can’t stand Trump and fathom why people will vote for him - this is why".
