Donald Trump Fights?

The sharpest criticism of Friday’s newsletter, in-house and among the wider readership, was that it was thick with emotional appeals for preferring Joe Biden to Donald Trump but thin on policy arguments for doing so.

It’s fine to say that conservatives should support Biden as revenge on MAGA for spoiling their party, one of our editors pointed out to me, but that’s not the way most Americans approach voting. And realistically, anyone who’s considering supporting Trump in the year of our Lord 2024 won’t be swayed by yet another tut-tutting about how disgraceful he is.

If you weren’t put off by one of his impeachments, indictments, or coup plots when they happened, you won’t be put off now. Assuming you’re even aware of them.
