Here in the U.S., it seems that while Judge Ginsberg, George Will and Senator Kirk are hoping that Mr. Trump is setting the table, so to speak, for someone else, other reasonable people have endorsed Mr. Trump hoping that some of his stranger comments are, in part, literary allusions. Recently, one of our journalists wrote that Trump may have had in mind a 19th century political party when he used the phrase "know nothing." One might add that the phrase also occurs often in a TV comedy from back in the day. Shakespeare fans may wonder if Trump has in mind both the comical "wall" from MND and the more serious one from R&J: " He ran this way and leapt this orchard wall." Certainly, many educated New Yorkers noted in 2011, during a ceremony marking the 9/11 attacks, that the mayor quoted a memorable line from MAC. Therefore, any mention of women on their knees might also recall passages from that play. Many also might recall a question from songwriter Pete Townshend's "rock opera:" What is happening, in his head?"
