Ultimately, Donald Trump’s glibness is what pissed people off, wasn’t it?
His words appeared manipulative and shallow and harnessed to harm. Anything he said (or Tweeted) was immediately suspect because his sincerity was something people couldn’t pin down or feel comforted by.
This apparent slipperiness drove libs crazy.
Thing is, a lot of politicians are glib. Somehow it’s more palatable and amusing when certain people do it. Humorlessness can be self-serving.

If there was a collective castigation that the left repeatedly implied from 2016-2020, one which built like a tear-ridden crescendo each time, it was, “words matter.”
Yup. Maybe they were right, and maybe they need to look inward.
