As even the leadership of his own party tries to deal with Donald Trump's racism – and as jarring as it might be to hear such a term applied to a presumptive presidential nominee, that is by any sensible definition what it is – the strange conga line he's leading rollicks obliviously down the road to Demagogue City, where the facts don't matter, and bigotry is pretty.In just a few years, Trump has made kooky normal, and race-baiting OK. And millions love him for it.Does anyone remember the birthers? The people who convinced themselves early in President Barack Obama's first term that he is in fact a Muslim, born in Kenya, posing as an American-born Christian, and therefore not legally in the White House?They were a cultish bunch, conspiracy nuts really, and provided all sorts of entertaining foolishness until Obama tired of them in 2011 and released the original, long-form version of his birth certificate (it remains on the White House website).
