It is in this near perfect state of perpetual aggrievement that Trump gives voice to a faction of America that also feels aggrieved. Trump won because he whines. He whines in a way that makes the weak feel less vulnerable and more vicious. He makes feeling sorry for himself feel like fighting back.
"America’s Whiniest ‘Victim’" is from the August 06, 2017 Opinion section of The New York Times. It was written by Charles M. Blow and narrated by Kristi Burns.
