The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

This is really insightful about Meryl Streep's comments.  As Longman notes, Trump wins through distraction.  He uses the outrage of "normal political society" as his fuel.  If he crashes the global economy, it won't matter, but if he doesn't, you're going to have to beat him on the merits.  But you have to know what the merits are.
