DICKERSON: “Trump denies that he was impersonating the reporter at the event, the reporter is with the “New York Times” he has a disability Trump says, he wasn’t referring to him. Picking up on David’s point, Donald Trump is wildly popular within the polling among Republicans. What is the state of things here?”
GERSON: “Well, I think it’s time, to confront not just Trump but his followers. It is fashionable in certain quarters to obsess of reality TV, shock radio, social media version of reality which is fashionable to attack people and groups in this sort of way. This is exactly at odds with what the founders talked about virtue. In their view restraint and civility all these things that under guard democracy are undermining.”
