George Will: Trump is something the nation did not know it needed

The Washington Post:

“To see what is in front of one’s nose,” George Orwell wrote, “needs a constant struggle.” An unnoticed reason for cheerfulness is that in one, if only one, particular, Trump is something the nation did not know it needed: a feeble president whose manner can cure the nation’s excessive fixation with the presidency.

Will is pompous and needs an editor who can teach him to write plain English. But he makes a good point. If we’re lucky, Trump’s incompetence will cut the imperial Presidency down to size.
