Again, our friend Merriam-Webster provides insight: Visceral
dealing with crude or elemental emotions
I handpicked these definitions because they feel so “Trump”.
Never has the presidential veneer been so eroded as it is today. One has only to read, listen, and watch to see our president instantly splay his raw, unfiltered self in the media. While President Obama put social media into play, it is President Trump who uses it with reckless abandon.
His visceral and public reactions expose the man.
His enemies feed voraciously upon the fodder that he spreads.
It’s all a bit nauseating.
Call me old fashioned, I don’t care. I find myself longing for a good measure of restraint.
