“As much as you might want a moral victory to emerge out of these four irredeemably deadly years, understand that history will never condemn Donald Trump.”

The election does not appear to be a referendum on Trump or the GOP. And as the past four years slip away into the historical record, expect them to be rewritten favorably for Trump, writes David Dennis, Jr. “Because history doesn’t condemn White men. History lies. It coddles. It rewrites. It covers them from the judgmental gaze of people who know better.”
