I don't understand how anyone can put "leader" and "Trump" in the same sentence. A leader unites, or at the very least, attempts to unite the people. Leaders don't lie, manipulate, degrade their subordinates in public, nor do they always take credit for success and place blame on others for failures. What we have going on now is a comedy show, but this show is affecting people's lives. There is absolutely no stability in our current Government, and who should be blamed for that? The "leader" of course. The terms "winning" and "snowflake" are used by grade school kids, not adults. But considering who we have in the White House I suppose it's appropriate.
There is a much bigger issue than Trump. He never won the Presidency, elections are typically lost, not won.
The issue is that so many Americans are totally fed up with the major political machines that they turned to somebody that defies all of the norms. They turned on the Democratic and Republican parties as they thought they would identified with somebody that proclaimed himself as an outsider. Now they have him, they are loath to admit his incapacity, they will back him through hell and back as they hate the alternative of the 'same old same old'.
If Trump ultimately is impeached, he will become a folk hero like Argentina's Peron, they want to believe and that fact transcends everything. Republicans will stand behind him on idealistic grounds, he has stacked the courts, rolled back hated policies and delivered what the Alt-Right want. I doubt if they will even consider evidence, they will vote to preserve their political conviction.
The Dems on the other hand are leaderless, not a single credible/popular candidate. If you thought Trump's first term was crazy, look out term two, it will be a doozey.
