How different is the reaction to Trump?
It is tempting to see the huge rage against Trump currently emanating from the Left as the result of how radically Trump diverges from convention. He may be the most radical President America has ever had, given the number of customs, precedents and assumptions that he has steamed right past.
But the extent of the rage may in fact not be unique to him. I have an article here which gives a lot of quotes about the outpouring of rage and hate that flowed from the election of the very mild and compromising George W. Bush. ANYTHING that undermines their delusions seems to push Leftists into foaming rage.
