Donald Trump has changed the rules of campaigning. In no area has he done more pioneering work than in the field of insults. He has insulted countries, political opponents, senior Republican leaders, and entire classes of people—from Mexican immigrants to POWs.

The word stupid is no doubt already limbered up and bouncing around his verbal ready-room.
