93 years ago, this was predicted:
“As democracy is perfected, the office of the President represents, more and more closely, with the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last and the White House will be occupied by a downright moron.”
– by H.L. Mencken (1880–1956), a journalist, satirist, critic, and (old style) Democrat, in The Baltimore Evening Sun, July 26, 1920.
