In 1964, Donald Trump was 18 years old. He did not go to Vietnam. Instead, he went to college, and then to the doctor, where he acquired a note that would justify his fifth and final draft deferment.
The first four deferments were for education, one annually for each year of his undergraduate studies — during which time the young Trump was an avid athlete, playing football, tennis, squash, and golf — and the last for bone spurs in his feet.
The election of Donald Trump is part of an ongoing surge of right-wing nationalism across the globe, from Brexit to Hungary to the Philippines.
This presents a thorny problem for the left. Belligerent nationalism has caused many of the worst atrocities in modern history, from the Black Hand in Serbia to Nazi Germany.
Barack Obama is leaving the White House. As a conservative, I don't think he's been a good president. But I'll readily admit he's been a terrific role model.
As the orange id approaches the threshold of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue — God help us all — I find myself reflecting on this more and more.
There was no single issue that animated Republican voters more in 2016 than immigration. Not only did Donald Trump thrill them with his talk of building a "big, beautiful wall" on the southern border, the unwanted presence of immigrants — supposedly taking jobs, committing crimes, and accelerating the disorienting process of cultural change — symbolized for many everything that's wrong with the country and everything Trump would banish in his effort to Make America Great Again.
What does it mean to stand by Donald Trump? What does it feel like not just to live in his world, but to love it?
I don't know. I don't live there. But then, neither do millions of the Americans who voted for him. As I try to imagine what they want from his presidency — what it might look like, what Americans might imagine it looks like, when America gets great again — I keep coming back not to the election itself, but to the movies.
