This president played to the ignorance and the base emotions of many
American citizens – those who voted for him, no matter why they voted
for him, bought the snake-oil he was selling. “I am the miracle cure,”
he steadfastly proclaimed, lacking little knowledge or evidence, and
then he called bullshit on the many people who cited sources claiming
otherwise. He was just up there crying “fake news!” at those who
disagreed with him, and voters totally bought it. Nothing seemed to
matter. Not the expertise or experience of his opponents or his
critics, not the complicated nature of the problems and issues at stake,
not the risky side effects, not the inevitable consequences.
