Leftists may have overplayed their hand

Again. John Hinderaker over at Powerline theorizes that the viciousness of the left's attacks on Trump, his family and his supporters has pushed him farther to the right than he might otherwise have been inclined to go.
It was inevitable that the campaign would push Trump to the right. Even under normal circumstances, he would have come under attack by the Democrats, some of it unfair. But the extreme nature of this year’s campaign–the constant slurs against Trump as a racist, an anti-Semite (that one was particularly absurd) and so on, the explicit effort to “de-normalize” him as a candidate and as a President, the idiotic and futile attempt to deprive Trump of his victory by bribing and threatening electors–can only have created in Trump a steely resolve to defeat his enemies (in some cases, his former friends), the liberals.
All I can say is, keep up the good work, haters!

Leftists like to think they are more intelligent, compassionate, and tolerant than the Right. But their actions speak otherwise, and the lightbulb flickers to life in revelation that they have become haters. The lightbulb is fluorescent so it took awhile to illuminate. Beware the toxicity.

A good businessman NEVER forgets what people say...and who it was that said it. Trump is a man steeped in the business world in a way no life-long politician can ever be. Best watch out for him, he may not be so friendly in the future...
