Victor Davis Hanson Private Papers

From an Angry Reader

DR HANSON.

 TRUMP TRAITOR IS A RUSSIAN SPY.

I LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING HIM IN JAIL WITH THE ENTIRE ADMINISTRATION.

THE TRUMP JOKE PRESIDENCY IS GOING DOWN IN FLAMES.

TRUMP FIRED COMEY TO CONCEAL HIS RUSSIAN CONNECTIONS.

DEMOCRATS WILL BE IN POWER FOR 30 YEARS AFTER THE TRUMP DEBACLE.

Victor Davis Hanson’s Reply:

Dear “HEIN”

There are three characteristics that identify writers suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome: the use of all capital letters in their writing (and sometimes as well repeated hyphenation marks), the resort to profanity, and the use of unsupported hyperbole. I congratulate you on suffering from only two of the three symptoms.

What is the aim of capital letters? And what makes you think Trump, who is no fan of Obama-era reset, is a spy for the Soviet Union? Did he approve sales of 20% of the U.S. uranium reserves to Russia, or receive huge speaking fees in Russia, while his wife was U.S. Secretary of State? Did he promise on a hot mic to a Russian official to be more “flexible” with Putin after he was elected? Please substantiate.

Trump fired Comey because he was a publicity hound and intellectually disingenuous; Hillary would have fired him on day one of her presidency.

After 2008 amid the Obama victory craze, James Carville (40 More Years: How the Democrats Will Rule the Next Generation) predicted a 40-year Democratic regnum; instead Obama within eight years had lost his party the vast majority of state legislatures and governorships, as well as the Senate and House, Presidency, and the Supreme Court.

I doubt any party will have a 30-year continuum of power.

For all your zeal, you never adduce any proof to support your charges of treason. Why not?
