Under the bus

Not wasting any time to throw Trump under the bus!:  "Ann Coulter: What America Wants Is ‘Trumpism Without Trump’" (Reyes).

I've been thinking that Trump would actually have won, easily, had he done the one thing he said he was going to do, or at least try to do, find the extra money for those grievously affected financially by the pandemic.  McConnell, true to form, wouldn't give money to anybody but the rich, and Pelosi was playing games hoping the destitution of his base would hurt Trump.  Trump proposed to bypass the mess . . .  and then just gave up.  The key point about Trump is that he seemed to hear the plight of the Deplorables, unlike everybody else.  He may have been Swamp-blocked from actually helping them, but he appeared to listen.  He gained lots of voters in Hispanics and even black men (rightfully Biden skeptics), but lost white male votes, people who felt Trump was just another Beltway Bastard ignoring flyover suffering.  Even a failed effort at getting them some money would have saved him.
