I have been trying to avoid current events, and especially Trump events in my reading lately, focusing on more 30,000-ft and long-term analysis. Really, it's what we all should be doing most of the time. While there are actions with long-term consequences happening in real time before our eyes - SCOTUS nominees and decisions come to mind - most of what we are getting exercised about now will recede. Trends in technology, demography, and philosophy will have greater importance, while we were chasing squirrels.
I find I cannot easily get away. I keep coming back to the Tim Tebow Effect, but let me tie it directly to Trump. We have a large number of Trump haters, The Resistance*, who believe that no one is listening to them when they tell us how terrible Trump is and how can we not see it; we have another large number of Trump supporters who believe that no one is listening to them, because things are going great yet he is still criticised. There are conservatives who disapprove of Trump who believe they are not being listened to. There are liberals who believe they can work with anyone and strike bargains who believe they are not being listened to. My own group is "there's plenty to dislike about Trump without having to make stuff up, but the more you make stuff up the more I am determined to discredit everything you say." I feel like no one is listening to that POV.
Except that's pretty much the view of National Review Online, which is still a major player among conservatives. Plenty of folks at other sites I frequent would say the same. So I really don't need to pound the table insisting that everyone just listen to my few simple sentences about Trump.
*Every time I see someone referring to themselves that way it irritates me. Wearing the clothing of the actually brave, with no courage of their own, like children dressing up.
