aligns with the general idea of "everyone assumed that Trump had no way of winning and then acted in a manner that made it slightly more possible"

I had to check for a second whether this was the comic relief thread.

I mean, you imply that this shit hasn't been driving people leftwards for years. Did wonders for me.

Pretty sure uncool possesses both intelligence and a sense of common decency. Inevitable conclusion.

I have a theory that observing Dave Hawkins over a period of years is appalling enough to cause anyone to veer at least a couple degrees to the left. There's your alt-light, low information, conspiracy believing, Trump loving, evangelical fundy flim-flam salesman revealed in all his glory, and underlying the ridiculous nature of the subject matter of his threads, it is a scary revelation.

"eric trump, co-head of the trump organ" is one of the more vile phrases I've read recently

trump has done a lot of damage, but I think it's being overstated.  examples:

he didn't repeal obamacare, he just repealed the individual mandate.  the good things, like medicaid expansion and guaranteed issue, are intact.  scrapping the mandate may lead to the unraveling of obamacare, or it just may cause a bunch of temporary damage before the system ends up being salvaged or at least propped up.

he didn't end the iran deal, he just pulled the US out of it.  all the other countries are still party to it.  like repealing the mandate endangers obamacare, this endangers the iran deal,  but it might survive this shock and continue forward.  both the Iranians and the Europeans seem intent on keeping it going.  unilateral sanctions from the US won't affect that much.  now trump also threatened to sanction European companies who do business with them.  a lot will depend on whether trump makes good on the latter threat, and on whether the europeans, in turn, stand up to him and shield those companies.  iirc, the Europeans did so before with previous iran sanctions, and they don't like trump, so hopefully they'd show backbone again.

one area of total destruction to Obama's legacy is the scrapping of carbon regulations.  but in real-world effect, even that is mitigated by natural gas continuing to drive coal out of business, and photovoltaics being competititve now and continuing to get cheaper every year.

So, not a matter of Drumpf not trying to cause damage, just he wasn't able to cause as much damage as he attempted.
