The idea that Trump has such sky-high approvals among Republicans are a result of protests, pussyhats, and “resistance” is ridiculous. Trump is giving Republican voters exactly what they want and is not doing anything they find objectionable.
What is needed now is for this idea to sink in for the purposes of action and not finger-wagging. For instance, let’s stop wasting time on being outraged over Trump’s anti-media rants. For a variety of reasons, professional journalism in the US has gone to the dogs. Everybody knows this. There is no widespread outrage to be garnered about statements that insult these journalists.
