WOW! New York Times ADMITS The Anti Trump Movement Is DYING!

If anyone has noticed that the last couple of months aside from the usual suspects banging the Anti Trump drum there has been somewhat of a downturn of the rank and file actually bothering to protest?

New York Times columnist David Brooks believes the movement to oppose President Donald Trump is losing strength because it is failing to see beyond its own caricatures of the chief executive, which were reinforced most recently by Michael Wolff’s book “Fire and Fury: Inside The Trump White House.”

The avowed anti-Trumper begins his piece titled, “The Decline of Anti-Trumpism” with “three inconvenient observations” about the 45th president.

The first was that “people who go into the White House to have a meeting with President Trump usually leave pleasantly surprised.

They find that Trump is not the raving madman they expected from his tweetstorms or the media coverage. They generally say that he is affable, if repetitive. He runs a normal, good meeting and seems well-informed enough to get by.”

Secondly, Brooks writes, contrary to Wolff’s “Fire and Fury” depiction “this is not an administration full of people itching to invoke the 25th Amendment,” declaring Trump unfit, so he can be removed from office.

Third, by the columnist’s reckoning, “the White House is getting more professional.”

Brooks explains, “Imagine if Trump didn’t tweet. The craziness of the past weeks would be out of the way, and we’d see a White House that is briskly pursuing its goals: the shift in our Pakistan policy, the shift in our offshore drilling policy, the fruition of our ISIS policy, the nomination for judgeships and the formation of policies on infrastructure, DACA, North Korea and trade.”

The writer then chastises those opposed to the president for offering “fairy tale” reasons for doing so.

“I mention these inconvenient observations because the anti-Trump movement, of which I’m a proud member, seems to be getting dumber,” Brooks contends.

He continues, “It seems to be settling into a smug, fairy tale version of reality that filters out discordant information.”

“More anti-Trumpers seem to be telling themselves a ‘Madness of King George’ narrative: Trump is a semi-literate madman surrounded by sycophants who are morally, intellectually and psychologically inferior to people like us.”
