As for the snowflake stuff, it says a hell of a lot more about you than it does me.

“The candidates who delivered the House majority largely hailed from the political center, running on clean-government themes and promises of incremental improvement to the health care system rather than transformational social change.”

Some People know Trump
Jack O’Donnell is the former president of Trump Plaza Hotel & Casino
"On Wednesday, the day after a midterm cycle dominated by President Trump’s divisive fear-mongering about immigrants invading our country, I listened as he told another of the lies for which has become so notorious. During his White House news conference he said, “I’ve never used racist remarks.”

I know the real Trump better than most. For 3½ years, I worked in almost daily contact with him at the highest levels of the Atlantic City casino empire over which he once held sway. I saw him treat black people and minorities as inferior. I heard him say vulgar, bigoted things and I rebuked him for them. But he did not quit. Indeed, he has continued it to this day."

In life, it's important to know when to stop arguing with people and simply let them be wrong.

I just can't get worked up by articles like this to care. The history of Presidents that exactly fit the profile of the Trump your author portrays, yet who were considered great because of their policies, dissuades me from caring about what O'Donnell thinks. Others think differently, positively, about Trump. I don't care what they think either. It is easy to create a hero or a bogyman by selecting or exaggerating or lying about things said and done.

I care about policies. About the kind of judges that are nominated. About not stepping all over the Constitution. When Trump, or any other President or politician, goes astray on those points, that is what bothers me.

Why are those things considered the political center? Why are they not merely political views. What's so "center" about them? My opinion is that the notion of the "center" has a perceptual quality of being good and right, balanced, solid. To me, claiming political ideas to be the center is a rhetorical trick to disparage other ideas and to promote those "centrist" ideas as the good ones.
