“Trump’s true talent was finding the pulse of these ignorant, livid people and playing them like a virtuoso strumming an instrument.”
Jared Yates Sexton, The People Are Going to Rise Like the Waters Upon Your Shore: A Story of American Rage

“For secretary of education there was Betsy DeVos, a fierce promoter of privatized schools and a wealthy lobbyist who raised ungodly amounts of money for Trump. Her post would put her in charge of America’s public education despite her record of effectively destroying Michigan’s educational system.”
Jared Yates Sexton, The People Are Going to Rise Like the Waters Upon Your Shore: A Story of American Rage

“Each one, on the surface, seemed like a bizarre pick, but a pattern soon emerged and it became obvious that Trump and his team had one domestic goal: dismantling decades’ worth of progress. In essence, every worldview and priority that had run in opposition to the interests of the American people had bought a seat at the table. The foxes were given free rein in the henhouse.”
