Politico’s big piece this morning is Trump’s Breakdown, wherein it is logically and lucidly explained that Old traits—bluster, defiance, implacable self-promotion—that once worked well now threaten to sink a presidency.

But fivethirtyeight.com points out that Trump’s approval continues to rise, though it’s below fifty percent overall approval—and undertakes to answer the question, What Explains The Bump In Trump’s Approval Ratings?

Apparently, the Trump daily show has found a balance of science, bullshit, and pixie dust that is appealing to about half of the population.

More fools we.
