Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter has spent more than 30 years observing Donald Trump’. He says: "THE FACT THAT HIS CARNY ACT HAS GOTTEN SO FAR WILL LEAVE THE PATH WITH A PERMANENT ORANGE STAIN... the final stage of a dumbed-down America: a Trump presidency. He has touched—embraced!—every third rail in American politics. He has offended: African-Americans, Native Americans, Mexicans, Jews, Muslims, war heroes—war heroes!—families of war heroes, the disabled, women, and babies. He has promoted gun violence, bigotry, ignorance, intolerance, lying, and just about everything else that can be wrong with a society. His ramshackle campaign, following a ramshackle business career, has exposed his flaws and failures to the world and, more importantly, to the people he will brush up against for the rest of his life. To them he is now officially a joke."
