Note: There will be no G-File on Friday because of the holiday, so we’re sending you Jonah’s midweek newsletter that typically goes to paid members only. Enjoy!
Remember the whole “burn it down” debate?
Last summer it divided the anti-Trump right. (I’m not going to use “NeverTrump” because it’s become a useless and often stupid label.) One side said the whole GOP was complicit in the damage wrought by Trump and that therefore the whole thing needed to be purged with cleansing fire. The other side said that while the anger was understandable, the remedy was too severe, costly, or (more relevant) not actually possible.
