On Twitter, I’ve been seeing a great many links to an article in The Forward, which alleges that “NeverTrump” Republicans were responsible for the rise of that same Donald Trump. I’d like to make one point.
The author talks about Barack Obama’s victory in 2008 — and writes, “Among the immediate reactions to Obama’s triumph was birtherism, the Tea Party, and a narrative that undergirded both: Obama isn’t one of us.”
May I simply point out that the Obama campaign, in 2012, ran an ad that said literally the following? “Mitt Romney. Not one of us.”
