To try to answer this, let’s divide the anti-antis into three groups.
On Anti-Anti-Trump
Jay W. Cobb

This is overly reductive. The world is not divided into never-Trump, always-Trump, and always-Trump-but-wont-admit-it-for-fear-of-social-stigma.

There are people who are, genuinely, “sometimes-Trump”. That is, there are people whose positions on issues occasionally overlap with Donald Trump, and see the reflexive anti-Trumpism as being an even worse alternative to sometimes-Trumpism.

And then there’s the puerile nature of “The Resistance” which turns a lot of people off (pussy hats! Dressing up as anti-fascist streetfighters! Keith Olbermann and Kurt Eichenwald going full batshit!) that makes Trump look even just slightly better (or at least, less odious) than his more hysterical detractors.

Like what you read? Give Roger Williams a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
