"My abusive boyfriend is gone but I can't stop thinking about him"

The election was over 2 and a half months ago. The new POTUS is engaged and operating, setting policy, making executive orders.

That outgoing guy has been absolutely, even notably silent, not a peep

But three out of four stories "above the fold" are STILL about...

Nothing sold papers like that train wreck. The papers don't know how to find stories any more.


Hey! That's me up there!

He's still news. But his silence is more about having changed the locks so he can't come into the house and make a scene just for the attention. Now he has to do that shit in his own house. And he's definitely doing it--his nonsense drove away the most recent pack of lawyers, unable or unwilling to deal with his bullshit.

Do you miss him much?

It is far from over.   This will continue for most of the next four years.  McConnell and McCarthy are now reconciling with Trump.  Suddenly 6 Jan is just as forgotten as every one of Trump;s 30,500 lies.

Hate radio is still inciting the least educated in emotional reasoning.  Same reasoning to them to save the Constitution by subverting Constitutional procedures.  That reasoning works on adults who are still children.  Whose campaign flags include a Confederate ome and figures of AK-47s.  And who believe Democrats are running pedophile rings.

Hate radio is alive and well. This is far from over.  One need only learn from 1930s Germany.

Far more insightful and honest was Jared Kushner.  Better characterized his father-in-law than anyone else in that family.

For example, Kushner would discuss The Don's "soft yes".  That only lasted as long as the next person who said something different.  "With the president, there's a hundred different shades of gray.  You can get him to decide in your favor by limiting his information.  But you better be sure as hell that people with  competing views aren't going to find their way to him. And when that happens, he's going to undo his decision."

Jared was quite blunt about Trump's 30 second attention span.  And would say so honestly.  Most people who did that honesty thing were quickly fired.  Simply ask all seven(?) Secretaries of Defense (in four years).

"My abusive boyfriend is gone but I can't stop thinking about him"

I think this is called post-traumatic stress disorder.

Re: "My abusive boyfriend is gone but I can't stop thinking about him"

He still has a lot of people who voted for him just because he was the Republican candidate. Some were unhappy with him in office, some watched him wreck shit with glee hoping for their unworkable utopia plans to come into play, and some paid no attention until it was time to vote again. Now is the time to illustrate to the clueless just how bad he is, so they won't get fooled again. It's a mistake to wail the all clear siren and not watch for weakened structures and unexploded bombs.

That TV show about how smart you are and how dumb they are was actually made for you and was only watched by you.

That's because there are very few actual journalists extant.

Did I use 'extant' correctly?  I couldn't find the word(s) I wanted.

It's a metaphor

Now is the time to illustrate to the clueless just how bad he is, so they won't get fooled again.

They aren't watching that show. Why would they? Would you watch a show about how dumb you are, produced by people who figure they are smarter than you are?

I got the impression there were at least some supporters that were disgusted with his post election antics, the January debacle, and not showing up for the inauguration. They might watch a little before changing channels.

It's awesome that we never heard the right say anything at all about Obama or Clinton after they left office.
