I looked back at my own posts, and I only had three posts about Trump after he announced and before the end of the month. One was on the day he announced and about it, the next was on the next day, and ten days later was about his Iowa strategery. What’s really interesting about this is that it belies my own memory about myself that I was for him and all-in-all-out about it from the moment he rode down the escalator. Now that I’m reading my own words from the second half of June of the previous current year, now I remember that I needed to be edged into it and out of my initial skepticism, that it didn’t happen instantaneously and from the very beginning. Now that I’m putting my brain power to it, it was probably when his first campaign rally, which happened to be in Phoenix, had a yuge crowd, when he very quickly became the co-leader in the polls with Jeb!, (and shortly after that, he passed Jeb!, and Jeb! never recovered, and Trump himself only relinquished the lead to Ben Carson for a very brief time in the fall), and he stuck to his guns at the first opportunity that the media tried to make him backpedal, that I got on the Trump Train and stayed there.
What I did find out is that my initial theory about the demolition derby was one I had from the beginning.
