The Fever of Trumpism Isn’t Breaking

Molly Jong-Fast: “Trumpism isn’t only a sequence of slogans; it’s additionally a bit of a fever dream. Since 2015, By no means Trump Republicans and extra mainstream pundits have predicted it might break. However to date, regardless of candidates like Kari Lake, Dr. Mehmet Oz, Herschel Walker, and Don Bolduc getting shellacked within the midterms, there’s nonetheless a fantasy that by some means Trumpism is a scalable phenomenon. If we’ve discovered something since 2015, it’s that Trumpism usually solely works for Trump. I might see, theoretically, Donald Trump Jr. having the ability to decide up the Trump mantle, however the concept some unrelated occasion would have the ability to take over appears much less seemingly.”

“As for the non-Trump lane of this GOP main, I simply don’t perceive how these extra regular candidates break the fever that’s Trumpism.”
