Trump’s big speech last night was full of lies and half-truths, but:
- That’s only to be expected in a major party political speech, particularly in a right-wing candidate’s speech, and especially in a Trump speech.
- It was, regardless of truth value, very polished and on-message.
- As such, the guy has a real chance of winning if he stays on that message.
However, that final point is an extremely big if. Donald Trump has a well-established reputation of having very little self-control over what he says. I doubt the leopard can change his spots.
