Here's why Trump needs to fail in the election: His presence on the public stage inspires both the sycophantic right and the hating left to functional insanity with their psychotic conspiracy theories and delusions. Perhaps the path back to normality in this country starts with Trump fading into history.

Just subscribed to The Free Press, this was the first article I read. Kinda pompous, but maybe the point was to illicit the comments I'm reading, which I'm enjoying much more than the article. I do think Barron should be off limits, his parents have kept him out of the spot light, so don't go shining it on him. The author has some odd ideas about white men seeking a savior figure. The article is more revealing about the author's perceptions than any reality. The idea that white-right men are weak, simple minded and threatened is a bit of a leftist wet dream. Still an interesting article.

River Page missed a big one. William Manchester's great book about Gen. Douglas MacArthur was called, "American Caesar." This is called irony, folks.

This article is not up to The FP's usual standards.

Trumpus Augustus! Takes a wild imagination. Appears to be a quiet kid. Possibly somewhat

" on the spectrum " as they say. Anyway. Just leave him alone.

Never do the limbo with progressives

Ancient Israel's first king, Saul, was very tall, but THAT didn't end well!

Wow, Clever River could barely wait for Barron to graduate from high schoiol to indulge in a superficial personality assassination by way of supposed memes. Maybe River should change his name to Creek if he insists on exploiting suxch shallow waters.

I never comment. But my disdain for this article and its author forces me to express scorn.

My gosh, that eye chart is offensive. I can’t unsee it.

What exactly is the "very online right"? If you mean "far right" online posters, then why not say so. I think it was intentional because it suggests there are millions of these crazies on the right. This piece was a waste of my time, almost as bad the fawning piece on the Gitmo artists.

Well… that was weird.

This post is utterly ridiculous. I am firmly on the right - even at sites like Breitbart and Free Republic, and I do not see this stuff.

This is like the lefties freaking out over 4Chan, which few conservatives bother with.

Shame on Bari and Suzy for allowing this.

River Page, here's 20 bucks. Take it and go down to your local courthouse, fill out some papers, and get yourself a real name.
