Zaleski: No way I’d bet their lunch money now
FARGO Donald Trump is not a likable fellow. Even his biggest fans concede as much. But the Trump phenomenon is not about being liked. It’s about being heard. It’s about The Donald saying whatever the hell he feels like saying, offensive as some of his bloviating certainly is....
