  1. Originally Answered: Is Trump doing anything right?
    As Smerconish says, “It depends on your silo.” Which means that if you’re a Trumper, you like everything he’s doing. And if you’re a progressive, then you like nothing that he’s doing. Smerconish proclaims therefore that the truth must be somewhere in the middle. I think that this judgment is too easy, too moderating, and just plain wrong. Here is an example that Smerconish would do well to remember- that in 1972 the discussions on tv and at the watercooler were the same as today in that, those who loved Nixon lived in their silo, and those who judged Nixon otherwise lived in theirs. The truth wasn’t somewhere in the middle. The truth, then as now, was that Nixon would be bad for the country and his legacy would be written that way, and many of us knew it then. The same is true with Trump. He’s dangerous for America and the world will recollect him as such. This “meet me half way” stuff is bullshit. Smerconish is perfect for CNN.
