Trump Got Trolled: Trump Was Goaded Into Making the Russia Controversy Even Worse

If President Donald Trump has acted as his own worst enemy in the Russia controversy, as everyone says, he’s been baited into it.
Rush Limbaugh a couple of weeks ago said he was laughing over Trump’s “epic troll” of the Democrats by firing FBI director James Comey (and meeting with Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov the next day). It was really the other way around. Trump wasn’t the troller; he was the trollee.
An Internet troll lobs bombshells to get a rise out of the other side, for his own enjoyment, or to get attention, or to make a point.
Limbaugh isn’t wrong to identify Trump with this species of provocation. In fact, it’s possible to see Trump’s entire campaign in 2016 as one long troll of respectable opinion. It’s no accident that among his most ardent admirers were fellow practitioners such as Ann Coulter and Milo Yiannopoulos.
Trump was a troll long before anyone had coined the term. He’s a natural — fearless, shameless, and a genius at identifying and exploiting the psychological and emotional weaknesses of others.

Once the Russia fever breaks, Trump will be able to improve relations with that country. Democrats and their moderate Republican stooges are still in shock over the election, and not quite coherent yet.
