Pitchfork Time

Trump is heading up a peasants' revolt. The people waving torches and pitchforks aren't going to be worried whether what he says makes sense or accords with what he said yesterday. What they're following is the noise he makes.

Hillary represents everything the peasants are revolting against. I can't see her saying anything to make them cast aside the pitchforks.

A vote for Hillary is a vote for business as usual. A vote for Trump is a vote for God only knows what. But this is a revolutionary moment in western politics- and electorates everywhere are wondering whether God only knows what isn't the more attractive option.
