Wall St. Jnl’s Bret Stephens wonders where Mark Levin and Rush Limbaugh were months ago, approving Donald Trump but now not so sure.
Mr. Levin has since become more critical of Mr. Trump, though Mr. Limbaugh seems to be hedging his bets. But both men provided Mr. Trump with the margin of respectability he needed in the early months to make his campaign credible with Republican voters.
Stephens in general gives one pause, but this saying Trump needed Levin and Limbaugh respectability is something else, assuming as it does that L&L lifted T out of danger, when Trump’s rise to seeming invulnerability at least seems to be a bigger thing than that.
