White resentment put Donald Trump in the White House. And there is every indication that it will keep him there, especially as he continues to transform that seething, irrational fear about an increasingly diverse America into policies that feed his supporters’ worst racial anxieties.
Oh no. What will keep him there is Twitter, the Rachel Maddow show, the “resistance”, the sheer enjoyment of discussing “white resentment”, this very article, etc. In short, the culture of spectacle.
People are having way too much fun to let the fellow go.
