Here is the secret of Trump’s Power.
He is the best I have ever seen in projecting to his followers (both voters and Congress) absolute strength.
Some of this I attribute to RW Propaganda
Some of this I attribute to help from enablers
Some of this I attribute to Roy Cohn
Some of this I attribute, quite frankly, to his mental illness and MobBoss life
And it leads to an observation I made some days ago:
[Donald Trump will act in a manner in which his behavior six months from his removal will be astonishingly similar to his behavior six hours from his removal]
This has lessons for us…and quite reasonably explains why our gloominess is more pronounced than it should be
(1) On the cusp of Impeachment
(2) After a Magnificent week at the Voting Booth
And why it will always be more than it should be.
