In physics, we all know the law that every action creates an equal and opposite reaction. Politics is not supposed to be an exact science, but with respect to this law of physics it is. Last Fall America elected the biggest political troll in the race, and his opponents are increasingly adopting the effective nastiness of Trump Troll style.
In a brilliant piece on Late Night with Seth Meyers "Trump Faces the Fallout from Firing James Comey" Meyers lampooned the troll in Trump with the above graphic. The piece also noted how our press has begun to hyperventilate over Trump's erratic behavior, such as when press helicopters followed Comey's motorcade over an LA Highway on the way to the airport after he was fired "because nothing says the press is keeping calm like filming a car on an LA freeway." Meyers also showed how some reporters were literally gasping for breath as they rushed from the White House to tell the news of Comey's firing.
When we troll, we appeal to our political base with facile extremes and fail to make the lucid arguments that ultimately win the day and steer our country right. Like this video argument by The Atlantic: America Needs an Independent Investigation on Russia—Now.
The question then: how long will the trolls rule America?
