thinks of a segment of the American population angered by the eight years of Barack Obama's presidency, a group that is now feeling vengeful. And one also thinks of the white supremacist, segregationist, nativist strain represented by former Ku Klux Klan leader, David Duke, whose noisy support Trump was so hesitant to reject recently and for whose constituency Trump may be a make-or-break candidate.As is so often the case with the U.S., there is in the Trump phenomenon an element that extends beyond the American national scene.That's right: an International with a capital "I": Globalized corruption in the mutual admiration society of Putin, Berlusconi and Trump.In the U.S., it is that great people composed of Latinos, Eastern European Jews, Italians, Asians, Irish, and, yes, Anglos still dreaming of Oxford-Cambridge sculls now cleaving the waters of the Charles River.Berlusconi invented this cartoon world. The new language is no longer that of the America we dreamed would be eternal, the America that has sometimes breathed life back into exhausted cultures.
