Donald Trump:  Folk Demon.  (Online title:  "Why Latino Children Are Scared of Donald Trump.")  The New York Times, August 18, 2015.
Ever since he began his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination with a vicious screed against Mexican immigrants, Donald J. Trump has become a figure of dread and comic-book meanness to the Latino community. He’s a villain in a flaccid pompadour, spewing threats and insults that have filtered down into the bosom of many a Latino family*, to be heard by children gathered by the television set or at the dinner table.  [Emphasis added]
*Where they will remain until and beyond Tuesday, November 8, 2016.
