Not that difficult to explain what happened. Trump tried to transfer the NBC concept of a ‘reality show’ from the Trump boardroom to the conference room in the White House, and see and treat his own cabinet ministers as apprentices. Trump perceives what ‘real reality’ throws at him as a hoax, and tries to sell his own fabrications as real. That he managed to draw so many Americans in his ‘The Truman Show 2’ is what’s actually surprising. Somehow, reality never set in with Trump that he might lose… Well, he’s about to.
