George Will on Trump’s Inaugural Address

I don’t usually go around quoting George Will, but in this instance, he has it right:

“Twenty minutes into his presidency, Donald Trump, who is always claiming to have made, or to be about to make, astonishing history, had done so. Living down to expectations, he had delivered the most dreadful inaugural address in history.
. . .
“Oblivious to the moment and the setting, the always remarkable Trump proved that something dystopian can be strangely exhilarating: In what should have been a civic liturgy serving national unity and confidence, he vindicated his severest critics by serving up reheated campaign rhetoric about ‘rusted out factories scattered like tombstones across the landscape’ and an education system producing students ‘deprived of all knowledge.’ Yes, all.”

Maybe because “all knowledge” is inside Trump’s head? That’s surely what Trump thinks.

Oh, lord. We are in deep shit.
