The emperor has no clothes, but it just doesn't matter. Psychology is at work here. Hard core Trump supporters will never change their minds, unless the culture around them completely reforms. And even then, they're likely to hold onto their beliefs despite all evidence to the contrary; they'll just go back into their anti-democracy hidey-holes.
The good news is that it only takes 50.1% of the electorate to turn things around. When the non-violent democracy movement grows to include just 3.5% (around 11 million) of the people acting in non-cooperation, it is likely to succeed in its demands. Trump is the perfect tool to help us reach those numbers; there are probably a few million of us already, and that number grows daily.
These appointments by Trump are not only broken campaign promises; they represent fascism writ large. I suspect that similar appointments would have been made by Clinton; the pair of them troll the same elite circles. We the People were going to get screwed by the last election either way. It's just that the GOP is much more aggressive. Trump is not doing this stuff alone.
