Media and Trump Voter Narratives

Yesterday, two different but familiar stories emerged from the New York Times. In one, a Trump voter said he was sorry, but didn't say what he was going to do about it. In another, Trump voters declared that they would stand with him no matter what, and that they were unpersuadable. At least 60% of Trump voters feel this way.

My thoughts in a thread.
1) No more empty Trump voter regrets without specific plans for restorative attempts to repair harms.
2) Celebrate the unpersuadable and stop trying to persuade them. Knowing they cannot be reached is a gift.
3) Hire people who got it right.
