A sign, not a man  
At the greatest college in the world, Professor Timothy Burke explains why Donald Trump gets support even though he is a mediocre player at a fixed game who doesn’t bother to remember which lies he’s told, running an operation so inept that it allowed his wife to stand up before a national audience and deliver a speech that was transparently plagiarized from the one given by Michele Obama four years ago.

I'm not married, never have been, and (nibbling away at my 88th year) don't expect to ever be, but even so... "allowed his wife to..." bothers me.

In the event, if she were to do something assholeic, or I were, that woujld b a matter of individual responsibility. Mind you, I wouldn't raise an eyebrow if either Mr. Trump or anyone who married him did some remarkably asshole-like thing. (And, off on a tangent, I've long thought that Mrs. Obama would make a better Pesident than her husband.)

It was the organization, not Trump, that allowed Melania to be embarrassed. Her job was to read a speech; they gave her an inept cut-and-paste. The organization reflects on him and is yetanother sign of his unfitness.
