WATCH: Ezra Klein's Dire Warning Against Donald Trump

Vox's editor-in-chief warns against the dangers of Donald Trump's candidacy in a video essay which has already received over 25 million views on Facebook.

Donald Trump's rise is a scary moment in American politics

Donald Trump's run for president has been so wild, so strange, so entertaining, that we've stopped noticing — or maybe just grown tired of pointing out — what a dangerous force he is in American politics. And for awhile, that seemed fine — everyone knew Trump couldn't win, he didn't have a chance, this was all just a big joke. But it isn't a joke. He won huge in New Hampshire. He won huge in South Carolina. This is the frontrunner for the Republican presidential nomination. And he's a dangerous personality perched atop an ugly ideology. It's time to stop laughing.
