Intellectual and Trump Supporter: Disconnect?

This is an interesting article to me because I had had to think of Hugh as being someone different from the regular gang of right wing talk show hosts. Even when I like what he has to say, I feel queasy about the logic he uses to get to those points with which I agree and I have to think about whether the queasiness is about my biases or because Hugh really does think in ways that are inconsistent with good sense thinking. He did support Trump, after all. And he does, sometimes try to downplay the menace Trump’s presidency represents, a sign to me of a flaw in thinking, the sign of someone tilted in the direction of the dangerously absurd. So this article on Alternet, a source I read with certain caution, was interesting to me.
