Donald Trump is simply a ‘BS artist’

We’ve called him many things. We pundits have overworked our thesauruses and our imaginations to describe Donald Trump. Kathleen Parker called him “the biggest goofball ever to enter the Oval Office sweepstakes.” Nicholas Kristof called him “ill-informed,” “deceptive,” “vacuous” and a “crackpot.” Yours truly called him “a tire fire in an expensive suit.” But if there were a prize for getting it right, all of us would be runners-up to Fareed Zakaria. Last month, in a live interview on CNN and a later column in The Washington Post, he nailed Trump perfectly. The Republican candidate for president, he said, is “a bull–-t artist.”
