‘A Large Portion of the Electorate Chose the Sociopath’

Tom Nichols, writing for The Atlantic:

Sadly, the voters who said in 2016 that they chose Trump because they thought he was “just like them” turned out to be right. Now, by picking him again, those voters are showing that they are just like him: angry, spoiled, racially resentful, aggrieved, and willing to die rather than ever admit that they were wrong.

Also: willfully stupid.
