From an Away Game...

In comments to a post at Bobbi's:
Donald Trump was, for The New Yorker, what climate change has become for National Geographic. No matter how tenuous the connection, editorial policy seemed to insist on at least passing mention in every single article and column.
My theory is that he had been sort of the private laughingstock of the Manhattan smart set for so long, an inside joke for Spy magazine* subscribers, that seeing him on the national stage sent them completely 'round the bend.

*Incidentally, every issue of Spy is free to read online at Google Books.
