Klein is, of course, vehemently anti-Trump, saying he would “never, ever, ever” give him a vote in February despite being a political conservative in another lengthy piece.

So why is he devoting a piece longer than the standard college application essay to mimicking the GOP nominee? Is imitation really the sincerest form of flattery?
Klein is certainly doing a funny job if he expects to be managing a newsroom that people are supposed to be taking seriously.
