His presence reveals not just the sordid character of his associates and others in government, but that of many ordinary citizens.
I have said this before and it bears repeating, President Trump doesn’t cause people to lose their character, he reveals people’s character for who they truly are. And for that we should all be grateful that we can see clearly.
