trump supporters, local
@cwebber Perhaps more unsettling is that Trump encourages it, sometimes explicitly, often implicitly by not denouncing it, or joking about it.
If he loses the presidency, he doesn't lose his voice or influence.
I share your anxiety, though moreso for the nation than for my personal situation.
re: trump supporters, local
I'm not banking on this. But it's pretty obvious he's far less an inspiring or savvy leader than a useful and pliable tool. His usefulness spent, the true puppetmasters will discard him as they do anything else past its useful life.
The bad news is that they, and those susceptible to their sway, will remain.
