On March 1, the cartoonist Ted Rall, a prominent anti-neoliberal leftist, left-splained to us that a second term for Trump is “not worth freaking out about”:
You’ve heard it so often that you may well believe it’s true: Trump’s second term would be a disaster. …
But would it really? …
What I’m saying is that it is more likely than not that he has already done most of the damage that he can do.
This has to be the single most baffling argument I have ever heard from a leftist in my life. We don’t have to worry about Trump doing harm in a potential second term because… he’s already done so much harm? What sort of sense does that make? The answer is none, obviously.
