Ordinarily I find Thomas Friedman tedious and irritating, but on occasion he speaks the truth with some eloquence. Today's NY TIMES column is one such instance. Friedman quite plausibly compares Donald Trump's statement yesterday about Hillary Clinton to the right-wing violent language in Israel that got Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin assassinated.
American is awash in guns and filled with tens of millions of Trump supporters, a good many of whom are clearly unhinged and armed. It will be a miracle if we get through this election without some serious and potentially devastating violence.
