Listen to the Historians

Back in the dark days of the Bush II administration there was a constant refrain to "listen to the generals." David McCullough and other historians have weighed in on the candidacy of Donald Trump.

A group of historians whose life’s work has consisted of studying the men, women and events that shaped America have banded together to speak out against Donald Trump.
Historians including David McCullough, Ken Burns, Robert Caro, Ron Chernow and Vicki Lynn Ruiz have all posted short videos explaining why Trump’s campaign is disturbing to a Facebook page called “Historians on Donald Trump.”

Do see the Facebook page.

  4. That's a great definition, Shaw. I'm so sorry not to have come up with that. I knew the word Trumpence had to mean something and that sounds about right.
