Something new to think about, nearly every day.
Trump was the first genuinely popular POTUS since George Washington.
That's what freaked them out so badly.
Every president except Trump was constructed entirely of artificial colours, flavours, and preservatives. (P.S. Salt, sugar, and dryness are preservatives but they're too natural so they don't use them.) Even Washington was wholly a construct, but he did become genuinely popular. The scheme wasn't transparent yet. Basically the scheme is that the nerds hold a school election, but the popular kid isn't allowed to win. The legitimacy benefits etc. are all secondary. The point is to make a mockery of elections.Then Trump went and mocked their mocking. He's so popular that when the RNC fraud machine didn't go to bat for him, he won anyway. His valid-vote margin was on the order of 10% or 11%. 44-55, that sort of thing.
Nixon wasn't a crook relative to other presidents. Indeed that's why he was impeached. However, he was still a crook in absolute terms. Maybe he wasn't actively unpopular, like most presidents, but he still used the RNC fraud machine to get elected.
