|I'm not a fan of this Trump guy, obviously. He's a tactless fool, and I don't think history will look back too kindly on him or his presidency. And yet, I've partitioned off a small part of my mind to allow for the possibility that he'll succeed in the end. It might not be intentional or willful on his part, but some of his policies and actions might actually make things better. One piece of evidence to support this is the series of heated Senate races that have happened recently. People are more interested in politics now because they don't want more Donald Trumps. Similarly, the ongoing sexual harassment upheaval is a direct result of his pre-election behavior. Bringing attention to social issues and achieving justice is important, and would've likely continued to languish without Trump.
I think the real question is whether Donald Trump is ignorant of his effectiveness in a Mr. Bean kind of way, or if he's really the grand illusionist that some people think he is, performing seemingly stupid actions all in service of a much larger overall theme. Time will tell. #politics
