As I recall, the detestable Christopher Hitchens came to journalistic prominence reporting on a British government sex scandal. Let his political decline into war apologist be a caveat to those socialists making themselves expert commentators on Trump & the porn star but failing to analyze or even mention his racist immigration polices, his anti-abortion activism, or his policies toward Palestinians, Kashmiris, the Rohingya genocide, or any of the US wars. Is it coincidence that one of the most prominent of these Trump gossip experts is an Assad supporter? If you are serious about the politics of social transformation, you don’t mistake salacious gossip for serious politics.
