David Hepworth on Trump. “He has no principles. Therefore he has nothing to hide.”

I know that the 45th President is a very easy target but that shouldn’t diminish this elegant, excellent piece by David Hepworth.

Full piece here

It concludes:

This is not a man that anybody looks at and thinks, “he represents my values or my country”.

Nobody would lend him their lawnmower.

He’s a television personality. To twist an old Tom Stoppard line, he’s the opposite of a person.

What he’s doing at the moment is “Larping”. Live Action Role Playing.

He has no principles. Therefore he has nothing to hide.

TV has a lot of answer for. This is the person the TV industry has been building towards since the middle 1950s. Nothing on the surface and nothing underneath either.
