Ross Douthat vs. Donald Trump

New York Times columnist, Ross Douthat, has tweeted that he knows how the Donald Trump campaign ends:

Here's a screen grab of the tweet in case it disappears:

For those of you who are not Stephen King fans, Douthat's tweet refers to a 1983 movie, The Dead Zone, which features a lead character with psychic abilities who feels a compulsion to kill a toxic presidential candidate.

I wonder how long it will be until Mr. Douthat finds men dressed in black, driving black vehicles paying him a little visit despite the fact that he considers himself to be a "conservative"?


  1. The protagonist (played by Christopher Walken) has visions of the future after an accident. One of those visions is of a wildly popular presidential candidate/religious wing-nut (played by Martin Sheean) starting a nuclear war, so and decides to kill him. He fails, but during the attempt the Presidential candidate attempts to shield himself by placing a child in front of himself and it ends his campaign. You have to tell the whole story for the mans comment to make sense.

  2. In context that makes a lot of sense. Meaning Trump would really have to have a moment where he shows the voters he is full of shit or something like pushing a mother and child out of his way to save himself.
