Covering President Trump: “He was willing to say the dog whistles through a bullhorn.”

From a conversation New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman had with Kara Swisher about covering President Trump:

“I think that he has been underestimated. And I think that has been a mistake for people to do. His shamelessness is an edge. And people should not hear that as praise. It’s just a fact. I think that he has an appeal for some voters of a kind of obtainable wealth, obtainable aspirational wealth, aspirational status. I think all of that factors into it, but also, he demagogued immigrants. He race-baited. I mean, I could go down the list why him? He was willing to say the dog whistles through a bullhorn, and that was part of why, too.”
