Strongly disagree on that.

Less Trump on Twitter, less Trump on TV, and the Trumpites are quieter and quieter every month.

I'm still divided as to whether this means:

1) We are at a new era of inclusiveness where the so-called "deplorables" are now part of the conversation.  And maybe we need that
2) The rise of the deplorables was a blip caused by the advent of social media into the public sphere.  Their ways of expressing political will are not workable, and so the natural order is for them to be on the sidelines, since they can't play nicely.

3) they're licking their wounds and breaking into smaller cells with the most radical elements running the show.

It's not a matter of if we'll see an increase in acts of right-wing terrorism, but how much and when.
