Chemerinsky: shout-out to IVC (whilst opining about the worrisome Mr. Trump)

…I confess I do not understand Trump’s appeal. He seems totally unqualified for the presidency; unlike virtually every president in history, he has never served in government office in any capacity. I worry that his meanness and nastiness is changing the very nature of what is acceptable discourse.
     In May, when I had the honor of delivering the commencement address at Irvine Valley College, I felt the need to remind the students of the importance of being nice, a message that in a different time would seem more appropriate for a preschool than a college graduation. I cannot imagine how people would want Trump handling delicate diplomacy with foreign countries….
Trump's big night; the GOP's—and the country's?—big nadir
