What explains the hysteria of the establishment?It is strange that the news media pundits would get so excited by Donald Trump might contest a election that appeared to be stolen from him.
In a word, fear.
The establishment is horrified at the Donald’s defiance because, deep within its soul, it fears that the people for whom Trump speaks no longer accept its political legitimacy or moral authority.
It may rule and run the country, and may rig the system through mass immigration and a mammoth welfare state so that Middle America is never again able to elect one of its own. But that establishment, disconnected from the people it rules, senses, rightly, that it is unloved and even detested.
Sometimes I think that what some Republican want most is the candidate to make the best concession speech. John McCain and Mitt Romney gave excellent concession speeches.
