This is because he was not elected to enact a set of policies. The people who are still behind him are behind him because liberals hate him. Like honestly, I think that’s 100% of his appeal.
I’m feeling more and more that the Donald Trump presidency is predicated on nothing more than causing liberals to despair, and as long as it does that, no one will give a shit that coal jobs aren’t coming back, that the Rust Belt will never again be the seat of the U.S. manufacturing base, that ISIS will not be crushed, etc., etc. None of that stuff was ever the point, and it still isn’t.
Today, most liberals seem to be either re-litigating the Democratic primaries or posting things to social media that calmly and methodically demonstrate that President Trump’s claims are completely false. Both of these efforts will do exactly nothing to address this presidency, much less cause the shot across the bow that so many liberals are hoping for.
This is because the Trump presidency is about venting and legitimizing his supporters’ emotions. So if you oppose him, don’t take heart when he does nothing that he promised, as if he’s going to be held to those things. The fact that he pisses off liberals is 100% of his appeal to his supporters, and as long as that’s the case, he doesn’t have to accomplish anything. He’s already there.
