August 31, 2015 — The Political Scene: The Fearful and the Frustrated, by Evan Osnos

Donald Trump’s nationlist coalition takes shape — for now.

“The ‘Make America Great Again Rally and Family Picnic’ in Oskaloosa (population: 11,463) opened at eleven, but by ten there was already a crowd of thirteen hundred people — almost twice the capacity of the auditorium. The buffet was serving free pulled-pork sandwiches, and Trump’s warmup act, Tana Goertz (runner-up, ‘The Apprentice,’ Season 3), told the crowd, ‘Please go eat! Mr. Trump can’t take all this food home on the plane!'”
