Here's an example why: Trump's initial response to the anti Trump demonstrations was a tweet declaring that the protesters were:
"professional protesters incited by the media".
He wants us to believe the demonstrations are the product of the media conspiring against him, and that the folks on the street are merely paid professionals. And I am afraid that this might be what he really believes. And that he cannot stop himself from being petty, paranoid and non presidential.
He's a bit better his second tweet:
"Love the fact that the small groups of protesters last night have passion for our great country. We will all come together and be proud! "
No doubt his handlers had rushed in and got him tone it down. They couldn't stop him from that one little twist that the protests involved only "small groups".
He obviously in a slow study when it comes to controlling his impulse to shoot from the hip in his nasty, cynical, narcissistic blaming way. And I wonder how in control he is when dealing with his staff. My guess is that there may be a lot of fear and loathing in Trump headquarters too.
Kellyanne Conway is looking really tired and stressed lately. I hope I'm wrong and that she's not afraid of what she helped loose on the country.
One last thing on this. Here are the county by county results. Pretty much rural vs. urban America.
