Donald Trump is President of the United States for one simple reason: He disobeyed the diktats of establishment journalists and politicians and chose instead to embody the heroic male virtues for which his supporters adore him.
He was courageous, in an age of cowardice. He was forthright, in an age of dissembling and euphemism. He was relentless, in an age of fatigue. He was consistent, in an age of u-turns and self-doubt.
