Thinking that normalizing Trump will work just by pretending he’s getting more sensible? That swim Trump is said to have taken in the Potomac today might give you pause.

Expect Steve “Lin Piao” Bannon to keep applauding from the wings, and don’t worry too much about Sarah Palin being sent to a detention camp near Yucca Mountain. Free speech wasn’t meant for incorrigibly ignorant crazies like her, as you know.
