So sayeth this article in early 2022 - The Trump menace is darker than ever – and he’s snapping at Biden’s heels | J…

Fucking depressing if true.

Donald Trump, Trumpism

1. Because

  • Joe Biden isn't popular
    • Biden has the lowest approval rating of any US president at this stage of his term (barring Trump himself)
  • Republican politicians fear Trump and they fear his supporters
  • Two-thirds of Republicans still think the 2020 election was rigged
  • Republican-run states are rewriting electoral law to make it harder to vote

2. Epistemic status

Agreement level
Ask again later

I don't know, but the article seems well reasoned. Sigh.
