The potential of the emoji as an education tool, what I will call more broadly as emoji-cation, is intriguing given the ubiquity of the emoji.
"We live in a country that has largely glamorized the myth of the armed hero who protects the powerless and saves the day."
So Trump is offering a potent cocktail of nationalism and optimism as a political outsider who can't be bought, facts, niceties and illegal immigrants be damned. A scarred and scared Republican base seems to be buying it. Can he go all the way?
