The Flawed

Flawed first drafts of history are written by flawed writers about flawed subjects and flawed policies, and read and believed or disbelieved by flawed readers. The word flawed rhymes with fraud, especially and particularly in politics. So when a flawed man such as Donald Trump who is not a fraud emerges in full public view, it is as refreshing as a cold shower on a cold winter morning, and just as startling in its effect. Donald Trump is the cold shower of reality that is so rare in public life that when it does appear it is undoubtedly sung about by the angels.

We give some slack for we’re all flawed
Until the saint becomes the bawd
