D.C. Honour

A headline in today's Boston Globe:

John McCain is remembered as a hero, patriot, and inspiration

How will Donald Trump be remembered?

During yesterday's honouring of McCain at the Washington National Cathedral former U.S. president Barack Obama said this: “So much of our politics, our public life, our public discourse, can seem small and mean and petty, trafficking in bombast and insult, in phony controversies and manufactured outrage.”

Perhaps that is how Trump will be remembered.
