I've never heard David Brooks talk like this

Yeah I know...he's been part of the problem.

But listen to him in this segment...Wow. I think he's harsher than Mark Shields.

1. Perhaps because Trump never insulted Shields like he did Brooks

In fact, I don't think he ever insulted Shields. Brooks has been pretty harsh on Trump in the NYT

2. "We use to have a better class of criminal"

"Trump doesn't even hide the obstruction....."

And, it's now self preservation among the staff.

4. To think that only a decade ago,

Brooks was touring the country, fanning resentment against Democrats among right-wing audiences by using every "latté sipping, yoga posing, tofu eating, Volvo driving" stereotype in the book.

How time changes things.

6. He's a Republican...

Insanely furious of what Trump is doing to his party. Also, probably, at the stupidity of his own voters.

Depressed as well.

2018 is going to be a bloodbath.

7. I watched them on election night.

Brooks looked genuinely appalled. His comment, as I recall, was something like, "Vladimir Putin is having a very good night."
